Auditions for Cheryl Strayed’s Tiny Beautiful Things
The Provincetown Theater will hold auditions for non-union actors this month for the Cape Cod Premiere of Nia Vardalos’s stage adaptation of Cheryl Strayed’s best-selling book Tiny Beautiful Things. A funny, heart-warming story about an online advice columnist and the myriad people she helps, Tiny Beautiful Things will be directed by Rebecca Berger. Seeking performers for a diverse cast – in age, race, and gender identity – to take on roles that require them to perform multiple characters, similar in manner to how plays like Greater Tuna, The 39 Steps, and The Laramie Project are performed.
Auditions for Tiny Beautiful Things will take place from 10am-1pm on Saturday, September 10 and Monday, September 12 from 6-9pm at the company’s playhouse at 238 Bradford Street in Provincetown, MA 02657. A non-union production, each performer will be paid an honorarium of $500 for their participation in the show. Rehearsals begin the week of October 16 for a five-week rehearsal period that will be scheduled around actors’ availability; anticipate rehearsals on weeknights, and daytimes on weekends. Tiny Beautiful Things will perform Thursdays thru Sundays, Nov 17 – Dec 4. No performance on Thanksgiving, Nov 24.
Saturday, September 10 from 10am-1pm
Monday, September 12 from 6-9pm
