StageQ, Inc. will be holding auditions for the CapitalQ New Play Festival, featuring various new plays from national and local playwrights. Performances will be at The Bartell Theatre, from June 24th to June 26th 2022. 



Auditions will be held May 18th and May 19th at 7 PM at The Bartell Theatre on 113 E Mifflin, Madison, WI 53703.




Due to the variety of scripts, there are roles for all ages, genders, and races for this new play festival. There are also several specific roles for BIPOC, transgender and nonbinary actors as well. We strongly encourage actors--queer and non-queer alike, and of all experience levels--who are interested in performing in new short plays to come try out!




Auditioners may prepare a monologue or perform a monologue provided by StageQ at the audition. 



StageQ and Bartell Theatre policy is that all production staff, crew, and cast meet the CDC’s definition of “fully-vaccinated” by the time rehearsals begin. Those wishing to audition don’t have to provide proof of vaccination status, but if cast, proof must be provided to the producer before the first rehearsal. Those who cannot be vaccinated due to medical reasons or age restrictions will be allowed to participate but are asked to contact the show’s producer ahead of time.



The specifics of the rehearsal schedule will be determined by each individual production’s director. However, in general, rehearsals will begin May 21st and be held between the hours of 7 PM and 10 PM. Rehearsal location will be First Congregational at 1609 University Avenue, Madison, WI 53726.
