Make/Shift auditions

The Actorsingers of Nashua NH are excited to return to the stage this Fall.  We are looking for a cast of actors and creative writers interested in a unique opportunity to participate in a show where the participants, led by the experienced creative team, craft a one of a kind production.

Make/Shift
An Original Production

PREMISE
A group of actors return to a theatre that was abandoned in March 2020 just prior to the opening of their show. Tasked with the cleanup of their space, a community reunites and shares what has kept them busy for the last year during the Covid-19 lock downs. What they have lost, what they have gained, and what they hope for the future both on-stage and off. 

PRODUCTION TEAM
Co-Lead Artists and Co-Directors
Jacob J. Zentis and Emily Zentis 

Stage Manager
Kaitlin Bilodeau

Producers
Gretchen Gray and Chuck Emmons

PROCESS
This unique project will be devised with the actors and the production team. Emily and Jacob will lead the ensemble through workshops that use their personal stories to develop the script. A sense of humor, flexibility, eagerness, and bravery are required for all participants.

PRODUCTION
Rehearsals will take place 2-3x a week at Actorsingers Hall. Two during weeknights and one on the weekend. Actors should be prepared to be called to all rehearsals due to the ensemble nature of the process. 

Tech week will be October 30th-November 4th 2021

Performances will take place at the Court Street Theatre in Nashua, NH
November 5th, 6th and 7th 2021

Covid safety – due to the ever changing guidelines, we will plan to have socially distanced rehearsals, recommend that all involved wear masks, and will only call people to rehearsal who are needed.  We will also ask the cast/production team to spend the last 10 minutes of rehearsal time to clean/wipe down the space.  We have masks and hand sanitizer available at the Hall.
