We are now casting for 1 female lead and 2 supporting actors (1 female, 1 male) for a DRAMA in our One Axe Spring Industry Showcase. We are specifically looking for a Latina actress for the lead but are open to others if it’s the right fit.
Auditions will take place on MONDAY, FEBRUARY 23, 8–10pm. Location: TBA.
Please reply (or send an email to oneaxeplays@gmail.com), including your headshot in jpg, your preferred time slot, the role you’re auditioning for, and full contact information. We will send you the full script and the sides you should prepare. Our Spring Showcase takes place on the evening of March 28, so please do not audition if you cannot commit to that date. Rehearsals are flexible and will be determined by the director. As always, this will not be a time-consuming affair.
If this role doesn’t speak to you, we will have exponential casting opportunities in the future, but we would greatly appreciate if you would circulate to any interested parties who would be a good fit.

Now casting for a lighthearted comedy titled “Bet and Flo” for our Spring industry showcase. This is a script written for two women (50s–70s) to co-lead, a lot of great material here for the right actors.
Logline: Two women shoot the breeze about life, love, and sex from the patio of their Florida retirement complex.

This casting we’re doing a little differently, as we’re accepting taped readings from the script. It’s an experiment! Videos need not be frilly, can just be a quick recording on your smartphone or computer. You can either upload and send the link (Vimeo, Youtube, Google docs, etc.) or simply send the file to us at oneaxeplays@gmail.com. We’re accepting taped auditions from Sunday, March 15–Saturday, March 21.
If you are interested in reading for a part, email us with your headshot in jpg and full contact info, and we’ll send you the script with the sides you’ll read from. You can read for both parts or choose one.
The showcase performance is MARCH 28, so please do not audition if you can’t commit to that night. Rehearsal schedule is flexible and will not be time consuming.
