What do you need to auction?

  1. Come ready to deliver a monologue. Can be memorized, read, or picked from one of our provided pieces.
  2. Check that the production is doable. Major conflicts can be discussed but may sway your chance.
  3. Showcase any “combat-like” skills that may be used in stage combat or stunting. Not all characters require this, but this is a physical show.
  4. Be willing to have fun.
