Welcome to the Actors Ensemble of Berkeley website!

Request for Stage Reading Proposals

Directors, budding and otherwise - we are now accepting proposals for staged readings to be produced during the time periods of "Rock and Roll" (Jan-Feb 2013), "Much Ado About Nothing" (April-May 2013), "Picasso at the Lapin Agile" (July-Aug 2013), and "Man and Superman" (Oct-Nov 2013). Works which have some relationship (thematic or authorial) to the "main-stage show" of that time period are highly encouraged. Staged readings will be performed on the set of the main stage production, but with limited (at best) use of the set itself. Readings will be evenings on a day of the week (currently Tuesdays, but may change to Wednesdays), between the opening and closing nights of the main stage show. 2-3 Rehearsals, typically in the week prior to the reading. We generally organize a single audition night for all the readings in the time period, sometime 3 weeks or so before the first reading. Please send proposals to "This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.". Thanks!

Thank You
