The San Francisco Olympians Festival is returning and will need dozens of actors for its 2018 festival which plays October 3 to October 20 at the EXIT Theatre.

No Nude Men Productions, one of San Francisco’s longest running indy theater troupes, will roll out 28 new plays written by 26 local writers and 5 national writers. The plays range from shorts to one-acts to full-lengths, and each one explores a different figure from Roman mythology or history, including an 8 part serial about Cleopatra.

Each of these 28 plays will receive a dramatic reading at the EXIT Theater, and for that we’ll need actors, so if you’re the kind of person who can rock a dramatic reading, we’d love to have you join us in a continuing tradition of creating exciting new work that showcases the diverse talents of some of San Francisco’s best playwrights!

Rehearsals will all be in September and October, and will involve 3-5 MAX for each show.

Auditions are Sunday, August 19, 2 PM to 8:30 PM, and Monday, August 20, 7-9:30 PM, at the EXIT. Please e-mail to schedule an audition slot and put “Audition Request” in the subject line.

Auditions will consist of reading aloud passages of text we choose ahead of time. Please bring a headshot and resume. Leave yourself at least half an hour to get through the audition process.

There is a small stipend, determined by attendance each night of the festival (i.e. you get a percentage of the box office).

If scheduling permits (and you’re interested), all actors will be considered for multiple plays.

Actors of all identities encouraged to audition! We have excellent opportunities for a wide variety of performers!
