Edge Theater Multi-Purpose Room
5451 N Broadway Chicago, IL
Bring a 1-4 minute dream audition, something that makes you feel like yourself. It could be a dramatic reading of Cardi B’s “I like it,” or that bad ass monologue you always wished you could do but it wasn’t your “type.” It’s a celebration. It could be anything. Whatever makes you have champagne bubbles in your heart. Do that one. You could play a song on your trumpet. You could read from your childhood diary. There could be magic. Tell a story. Make a 3 minute play. It could be funny or sad or both or neither.
There will be beer and wine on the cheap starting at 7. Bring a couple bucks and drink to help us pay for the rental of the space. “Dream Auditions” start at 8. Those interested in being involved as an actor or maker for this years crop of plays will have 1-4 minutes to share whatever they have with the whole group.
If your medium of art is not shareable in a “dream audition,” format--just come and hang out with us. We’d really love to meet you.
The Neighborhood has 3 full productions to cast for the year, along with a three week workshop, and 1-2 “Ultrasounds.”
The Neighborhood is at the moment, financially, a community theatre. This means we are unable to pay any theatre maker involved in our shows. If this is a deal breaker for you, we completely understand. Artists deserve to be paid for their work. And we advocate for you placing value in your work and artistry.
Our mission is to become a company that can pay their artists. As of right now, all we can offer is our humble home to make work that feeds our souls and honors the shaky place in our hearts.
