Casting Call for Too Much Light Makes the Baby Go Blind

We here at English Theatre Leipzig are currently casting for our December production “30 Neo-Futurist Plays from Too Much Light Makes The Baby Go Blind (30 Plays in 60 Minutes)” by Greg Allen. The director, Emily Wessel, will be holding open auditions from 10am to 3pm on October 5th and 6th. The auditions will take place at the Neues Schauspiel Leipzig, Lützner Str. 29, 04177 Leipzig.

If you would like to participate, please tell us by sending an email to (info@englishtheatreleipzig.de) stating on which day you will attend the audition. Additionally, Emily has requested that you prepare a few things for the audition:

Please come with a 2 to 3-minute true story about something that happened in your life. It can be sad, it can be happy, it can be funny, it can be ridiculous, it can be mundane. We are looking at your ability to tell a story, not your ability to memorize a monologue.

Along with your prepared story, come with two topics that you want to talk about. These can be topics that are important to you, topics you find interesting, funny, scary, compelling, poignant or annoying. Topics you relate to.

Also, make sure you wear clothes and shoes you can easily move in.

We look forward to seeing you there,

Your friends at English Theatre Leipzig
