Please CANCEL your sign up if you are unable to attend. You can also change the time if you need to via this site. If all slots are full, or you cannot make the available times or dates, please contact us to see if we can extend audition times. 


Please prepare a 2-to-3-minute contemporary monologue (not from this show) reflective of the character(s) for which you are auditioning and the style of the play.  We suggest choosing a piece that shows your range as an actor and that leans towards comedy/dark comedy or comi-tragedy.  Please be prepared to discuss your specific reason(s) that you have chosen this selection. Bring yourself to it and make it your own. If you have an alternative, creative idea for your audition, we encourage you to try it. However, you should definitely be prepared to share specific reasons why you chose this approach. Memorization of your monolog is not required, but often makes a better audition. 


Please arrive 10 minutes prior to your audition and no earlier. There may be limited space at the site. Expect your audition to last approximately 5 minutes and we will try our best to remain on time. Materials: You will be asked to fill out an audition form when you arrive.

The Easthampton Theater Company presents the hilarious and heart wrenching "TORCH SONG." 

"TORCH SONG" follows Arnold Beckoff on his odyssey to find happiness in New York. 

All he wants is a husband, a child and a pair of bunny slippers that fit, but a visit from his overbearing mother reminds him that he needs one thing more: respect.  

Join Arnold on this all-too-human journey about the families we’re born into, the families we choose, and the battles to bring them all home.
