From San Juan Com­mu­ni­ty Theatre…
Join us for audi­tions for SJC­T’s new web­series, “Fri­day Har­bor Hap­pen­ings!
This new, dig­i­tal work is a satir­i­cal sketch com­e­dy show with an ensem­ble cast, cre­at­ed by San Juan Com­mu­ni­ty The­atre for our beloved local com­mu­ni­ty. The writ­ers hope the episodes will bring a smile and some laugh­ter to every­one in these uncer­tain times.
Fri­day Har­bor Hap­pen­ings” cen­ters on a new (but fic­tion­al) social media page and the (also fic­tion­al) island inhab­i­tants that join the page. All actors will be filmed via Zoom on their home computers.
There are two dates sched­uled for audi­tions — Thurs­day, Sep­tem­ber 10, 6:30–9:00pm and Sun­day, Sep­tem­ber 13, 2:00–4:00pm.
All audi­tions will be held via Zoom. Actors will read from script pages pro­vid­ed by SJCT.
