Overview

Maximilian Kolbe

Auschwitz, 1941. In Nazi occupied Poland, the concentration camps are filled with Jews, Poles, the weak and unwanted, and with anyone who opposes Hitler’s regime. When a young husband and father is singled out for execution, a Polish Franciscan friar, prisoner number 16670, steps forward to save him. This is the story of Maximilian Kolbe.

Instructions

Maximilian Kolbe

Decide! Determine which show you will be auditioning for by choosing from the list on our audition page. Then, look through the character breakdowns and choose which character you'd like to audition for. You can audition for multiple roles.

Sides! Within the dropdown for each character description, you'll find downloadable PDFs of the audition sides for that character. Download the sides. Review the sides until you are familiar with them and comfortable performing them.

Hide! Next, set up your space. Find a quiet space and prepare to record your audition using whatever recording software is available to you. This can be done on your phone if access to a studio or home-recording equipment is limited. Please record only your own lines, not those of the other characters in the scene(s).

Recording

MP3 audio recordings preferred. Video auditions will be accepted if you can't record audio only.

If recording your audition as a video, please ensure that you're in a quiet environment with a neutral background. If recording your audition as audio, please send raw audio with no special effects or music. We'd prefer not to hear a reader reading with you, and there's no need for you to read the other characters' lines.

We prefer auditions with no "reader" - just you reading the lines for the role you're auditioning for. You can leave a natural break where the lines of the other character(s) would be.

Delivery

Deadline: Friday, February 23, 2024

Please slate prior to each side: "Your Name, Character, Side #". Each character should be recorded separately and uploaded as its own mp3 file. Please label your files CHARACTER NAME-Your Name-Side#s (Your Location)

Ex: KOLBE-Actor Name-Sides1&2 (Chicago)
