2023 NPP Auditions for One Act and Ten Minute Plays

NPP Staged Reading Auditions

During the festival, six (6) Ten-Minute plays and two (2) One-Act plays will receive a staged reading. The Ten-Minute Plays are directed by student directors and supported by student dramaturgs, while the One-Acts are directed by faculty directors, and also supported by student dramaturgs. 

There are two ways to audition for the NPP Staged Readings.

Option 1) Submit a self-taped recorded audition by January 6th. If you are auditioning for the Irene Ryan Acting Scholarship, you may use that audition for the NPP Staged Readings as well.


Option 2) In-person auditions held the morning of Wednesday, February 1st at the Festival. The in-person auditions are last minute auditions – we encourage you to consider Option 1.

Final Casting will take place on Wednesday, February 1st and rehearsals and performances will take place in person at the festival. 

Be sure to complete a Student Program Inquiry Form and select Acting/Auditions for NPP Plays to be notified of guidelines and deadlines for auditioning. All students must be registered for the Festival to participate.
