The biggest little play festival is back for its 6th season! Short+Sweet is THE biggest theatre festival in town and regularly features over 60 plays involving over 150 actors! So if you are looking at being cast in a play (or two!) in Short+Sweet UAE then this is the place to be!
This year S+S has a permanent home at The Junction and the entire festival will be held there from 25th Jan to 3rd Mar!
We have a large number of directors registered for the festival this year so auditioning will increase your chances of being cast in minimum one production. In the past actors have been flooded with offers and were spoilt for choice (you can act in maximum of only two plays in the festival) so we expect the same this year. Many directors are actually looking to work with new talent so do not fear if you have never acted before. The only thing you need to do is clear your calendar now and make sure you are there!
AUDITION DATES & TIMINGS
Auditions will be held at The Junction at Alserkal Avenue over 2 Saturdays - 18th & 25th November from 10am to 1pm.
First up, you need to register if you are coming in for auditions. This can be done by dropping an email to email@example.com and indicating which day you are likely to attend. This will help us to plan numbers.
Next, come prepared with a 2min monologue of your choice. We request you to keep it to 2 minutes as we have over 150 actors registered and we have to give everyone a fair chance. You are allowed to read your monologue if you havent memorized it, however from experience we can tell you that some of the best acting comes when you are free of any paper in hand!
You can pick a monologue of your choice online from different sources. Here is a link to one such site that you may want to explore: http://stageagent.com/monologues
TIP: It’s always good to choose content that is your strength. So if you think you are good at emotional acts, pick a monologue that will allow you to showcase that talent. If you think your comic timing is great, choose something that will allow you to display that. But most importantly enjoy the process!
LATE ACTOR REGISTRATIONS
It's not too late to register for the auditions so if you know any actors who forgot to register they can still audition! Just get them to drop an email to us on firstname.lastname@example.org and I'm sure we can slot them in.
We look forward to seeing you all at the auditions. If you have any questions please don't hesitate to drop Sabiha Majgaonkar an email or call her on +971 56 9519913.
