Join us for Molière's clever anatomy of Alceste, a man determined to be the sole target of society's disdain and the flirtatious Célimène's love. As Paris bustles around him, Alceste picks at its flaws, revealing his own.


This will be a Zoom livestream performance of the show on the evening of Saturday, February 25th, 2023 with virtual rehearsals leading up to it. We are looking for an ensemble of 8-10 excellent comedians, plus stage managers, ready to work hard and have fun. Participation requires internet access and ability to use Zoom. Rehearsals will probably be 3 days a week and we do our best to accommodate non performance/tech conflicts. 


Soon after filling out the form at, Director Michelle Denise Norton will send you a selection of monologues taken from the script. Please video yourself performing one of them. This video must be sent in by midnight Wednesday, December 28th. There may be virtual call backs the first week in January. The readthrough will take place Monday, January 9th, 2023.


Upstart Arts is an all volunteer, nonprofit theatrical collective. Upstart Arts recognizes that diversity creates better art. We are dedicated to providing opportunities to and inviting people of all ages, races, gender expressions, sexualities, or ethnicities. We acknowledge the Indigenous peoples, the Sioux, Algonquin, and Susquehannock tribes,who are the original stewards of the lands on which we now live and perform. We encourage our participants, patrons, and viewers to engage with current leadership to learn more about land and climate issues. The theatre is a better place when we are all working together to tell rich and diverse stories focusing on all walks of life.
