Call for Actors - VSA Playwright Discovery Program

The Kennedy Center Office of Accessibility and VSA is currently seeking interest and availability from DC local actor/readers to participate in two readings of ten-minute plays in conjunction with the 2024 VSA Playwright Discovery Program--which offers professional development opportunities for high school playwrights with disabilities. 

  • First read will happen virtually (via Zoom) on Saturday, March 23, 2024 from  1:00 to 5:00 p.m. ET, with a break (this is the anticipated time frame, and will be confirmed at a later date). 

  • Second read will happen on Monday July 8, 2024  in rehearsal studios of the Kennedy Center.  Exact time TBD, however artists would need to have availability between 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. (includes a provided lunch break)

 

This is a non-Equity contract. Actors need to be available for the entire project (both first and second reads).  Each actor will read multiple roles across several different scripts. Scripts will be provided to actors prior to each read-through. Note that this is a process-driven project and will not include a public audience. 

Compensation is $300 for the total project. 

All interest is welcome; we encourage submissions from  actors who have lived experience with both apparent and non-apparent disabilities. Disability is a broad umbrella that covers a variety of lived experiences which includes visible, physical, and/or sensory conditions, as well as less visible conditions like anxiety, ADHD, depression, chronic illness/pain, PTSD, OCD, dyslexia, dysgraphia, neurodivergence, and more.  Experience working with youth artists is a plus.

The winning plays will be chosen in early February and will determine specific casting needs.  We are currently seeking interest and availability, with the understanding that selected interviews, casting, and final offers will be made in late February.  Please note that as this program involves direct contact with minors under the age of 18, all hires will be required to participate in a background check process.  For consideration, please send an email of interest and include your acting resume, headshot, and at least one (1) reference to emlampione@kennedy-center.org  with the subject line “PDP Reader Interest.”  

 

Emails must be received no later than Monday, February 12 at 5:00 p.m. ET.
