  • Ashley Popio leads a presentation at the Women's Theatre Festival meeting in March.

In March, we reported on the Triangle's new Women’s Theatre Festival, which will debut this August. Conceptualized by Raleigh’s Ashley Popio and developed by a group of local women in theater, it will feature plays written and directed by women, with women composing the majority of the casts. Now, WTF has announced open auditions for anyone who wants to be a part of the festival.

The auditions will take place from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday, May 28 at Raleigh’s Sonorous Road Theatre. Women, men, and children are all welcome to audition; sign up for an appointment at the WTF website, where you can also find instructions for auditioning online if you can't make it to Raleigh on Saturday. WTF is a response to well documented gender inequality in theater; this is your chance to help right the scales.
