Broadway Workshop Announces Auditions for Upcoming Virtual Play Everything Seems Like Maybe

 

Broadway Workshop is thrilled to announce auditions for the new virtual play Everything Seems Like Maybe by Sandy Rustin, this Fall, for high school students ages 14-18.

 

Everything Seems Like Maybe, is a brand new collection of short monologues inspired by the writings of American teenagers in April 2020, and will be co-directed by the playwright herself, Sandy Rustin, and Broadway Workshop Director, Marc Tumminelli.

 

When Broadway Workshop's director Marc Tumminelli was given the opportunity to produce this play he jumped at the chance. "I read so many plays intended for young performers and most do not come close to ever sounding like the actual voices of my students. When I read Everything Seems Like Maybe, it sounded like it could have been written by Broadway Workshop students. Sandy Rustin is a brilliant writer and she was able to create a play that pulls and your heartstrings, makes you laugh and feels like the voices of the next generation. I immediately emailed Sandy and asked her to co-direct the play and I am so thankful she is coming on board to work with me on creating this virtual production for Broadway Workshop" said Broadway Workshop director, Marc Tumminelli

More show information:
The voices of teenagers take the spotlight in this series of timely monologues about the experience of sheltering in place during the COVID-19 pandemic. Based on the written work of real high school students and written especially for performance on video-conference platforms Everything Seems Like Maybe celebrates and validates the thoughts of young people during a surreal and unprecedented time; whether they’re missing a crush, critiquing the society in which they live, or trying to imagine what could be next. This piece also has an option to include writing from your own cast, for another way to engage with the moment. The Broadway Workshop cast will feature 14 student actors ages 14-18. This production will be produced under special arrangement with Playscripts Inc.

Casting:
Broadway Workshop is seeking a diverse cast of 14 teenage performers to play a variety of roles. Each actor will be given two (2) monologues to present as part of the final presentation of Everything Seems Like Maybe. Actors should be interesting and ready to create realistic characters. We are specifically seeking students with great personalities, who are willing to stretch themselves in a non-musical setting and who are comfortable delivering monologues. Students cast will have one-on-one coachings in a group setting leading up to the final presentation and filmed version.

Auditions:
In order to be considered for a part in this program, all students must submit a preliminary audition video by Friday, September 18th at 5:00pm Eastern Time.
