Witness: The Story of Virginia Hill is in pre-production. At the present time, we are casting the title role of Virginia Hill in this full-length, three-act, one-actor play in Las Vegas and Denver.
The role of Virginia Hill is played by an actor who can portray a woman in her 40s. The casting process begins by sending a resume and headshot to email@example.com. Upon receipt of these materials a Zoom audition will be scheduled
The audition itself will include an actor presenting a two-minute monologue from a dramatic play, film, or TV show. Due to the personality of the real-life Virginia Hill, certain comedic cuttings might also work.
Upon receipt of an actor's resume and headshot, a side from the Witness script will be sent. An actor needs to be prepared to read from any part of the side at the audition but is not expected to memorize the piece.
Upon its premiere, which is expected in the Spring of 2022, Witness will join a number of other successful one-actor plays from the same creative team, some that are beginning their sixth year in continuous production. Click on titles to obtain more information about these productions:
