Montgomery Playhouse is committed to equity, diversity and inclusion. As such, all performers are encouraged to audition, but especially actors with identities historically excluded from the performing arts (BIPOC, trans/GNC, disabled, fat/plus-size, etc). Due to the subject matter of the show and current political culture we are hoping to intentionally center and highlight queer and trans performers in this piece.
This is a non-paid opportunity.
Come audition for The Laramie Project! We are casting for 8 actors representing approximately 80 characters.
