Audition For This Year’s Olympians Festival!

Auditions are November 4, 2 PM to 9 PM, and November 5, 7-10 PM, at the Exit. Please e-mail to schedule an audition slot.

The San Francisco Olympians Festival is returning and will need dozens of actors for its 2012 festival which plays the first three weeks of December!

In the month of December in 2012, No Nude Men Productions, one of San Francisco’s longest running indy theater troupes, will roll out 25 new one-act plays written by 27 local writers, each one focusing on one of the Olympian or Titan gods of Ancient Greece.

Each of these twenty-five plays will receive a dramatic reading at the Exit Theater, and for that we’ll need actors, so if you’re the kind of person who can act AND read, we’d love to have you join us in what promises to be even a bigger success than last year’s festival!

Rehearsals will all be in November and December, and will involve 3-5 MAX for each show. The show schedule is as follows:
