Auditions for The Best of Fresh Blood

Are you an actor who is interested in performing in the Best of Fresh Blood Festival, this July 17-19? Good news! The directors will be holding auditions by appointment on Sunday afternoon, June 8. If you are interested in booking an audition slot, you'll write to: and send us:

  • Your head-shot/photo
  • Your acting/theatre resume
  • A short message, detailing your availability on Sunday, June 8 in the afternoon (approx. 1pm - 5pm)
We'll respond with an audition time and location. At the audition, you'll perform a short (90-120 second) monologue. You may also be asked to read sides, but we will do our best to send those to you ahead of time. 

If you are not available on June 8, you can still be considered for casting. You should still send us your photo and resume, and if possible, send us a short video of yourself performing a monologue - ideally a horror-related one, where you show us how scared or scary you can be!
