Calling all actors for our 2022 Plays in Progress Series!
Athena Project Arts is producing four brand new table readings for this year’s Plays In Progress Series. We are looking for 18 actors across all demographics (age range 16-50s) to showcase these original plays. Athena Project’s annual Plays In Progress Series will be June 4th and 5th as in-person table readings and talkbacks, featuring incredible playwrights, directors, dramaturgs, and actors from across the country. The Series will take place at the Aurora Fox Arts Center and seeks to uplift the voices of women* artists while enriching patron’s understanding of the new play development process.

We want to create a safer space for the expression and growth for all women, non-binary, and LGBTQIA+ individuals.
