After a brief hiatus last year, the American Community Theatre (ACT) is again up and running. It has found itself a new artistic director in performer Arvin Robles and put out an audition call for its May production of a series of short plays collectively entitled Emotional Baggage. The open casting will take place on Thursday at the Fringe Club, Fotogalerie Room A, from 8pm. 'It will be a busy year,' says Robles. 'We're aiming to further broaden ACT's appeal by staging a wide range of productions. This year alone, we're conducting improvisation workshop series for adults and children, Broadway revues, a full-length straight drama, a full-length contemporary musical, a family production and community performances.' As for Emotional Baggage, they're looking for a variety of actors, both male and female aged 15 and up. 'They're all short plays and one acts. Some of them are satirical, some slapstick, with occasional gripping moments.' To book an audition slot, contact ACT at email@example.com or call 6121 0821.
