CALL TO AUDITION: The 8th Annual Original Play Festival

Every year, Cabaret Theatre puts together a play festival that features the works of student playwrights, directed by students, and performed by students. The Original Play Festival not only gives life into new plays, but it is also a celebration of student theatre. Now in it’s 8th year running, Cabaret Theatre is proud to present the world premires of new, student-written pieces OPF…but in order to do that, we need actors! We need you to come audition and help keep this tradition alive and running!

Worried that you might not have enough theatre experience to get involved? The Original Play Festival is a wonderful place to start if you are interested in performing, or with just generally getting involved at Cabaret Theatre. Also, wouldn’t it be cool to be a part of the world premiere of a play that your fellow peers wrote? 

The 8th Annual Original Play Festival will be coordinated by Emily Reineke. Plays and directors are currently TBD.

Friday, March 25th at 2:00pm and 7:00pm
Saturday, March 26th at 8:00pm
