Available Light announces auditions for our 2017-18 Season. We have a wide range of roles to cast this season. We want the stories and the people on our stages to reflect our city and our community, and that means a beautiful and complex multiplicity. AVLT seeks to cast a season with performers diverse in culture and identity. We love new faces and old friends. Whether you’ve never auditioned for AVLT before or you’ve come to every open call, we want to see you!
