On February 18 & 19, 2017 CFABS will be staging performances of 12 of the winning plays from our first ever, Stage It! 10-Minute Play Competition and… WE NEED ACTORS! Robert De Niro once said, “One of the things about acting is it allows you to live other people’s lives without having to pay the price.”

We would like to invite you to take a chance at “living another person’s life without paying the price” by coming to audition for a role (or roles) in these fantastic short plays. Open auditions for the Stage it! 10 Minute Play Competition are being held at our Center for Performing Arts at 10150 Bonita Beach Rd. on Sunday, January 8, 2017 starting at 4:00pm. (Rehearsal schedules will depend upon the role, and cast member availability).  Performances will be held February 18 and 19 at the Center for Performing Arts.

We are looking to fill 36 roles, (18 men, 17 women and 1 child). The characters range in age from 10 – 70.  The audition is open, and all types are welcome.

The twelve outstanding plays being staged were each carefully selected by a jury consisting of 26 judges from across the nation. A brief description of the plays and the roles being cast is below:audition-notice
