Bay Street Theatre is seeking actors for its three Mainstage plays this summer in Sag Harbor plus its Literature Live! production of To Kill a Mockingbird this fall, and the nonprofit theater has issued a local casting call.

Artistic director Scott Schwartz, associate producer John Sullivan and associate artist Will Pomerantz will host Equity Principal auditions this Saturday, March 8, from 10 a.m. to noon and from 1 to 3 p.m.

Actors are instructed to prepare a monologue less than two minutes long. Those who would like to audition for Mainstage’s musical production must also prepare 16 bars of music to sing. An accompanist will be provided. Actors should bring a headshot and resume, stapled together.

“The summer of 2014 at Bay Street is a season of art and revolution,” Schwartz said. “We’re producing two world premieres and a modern classic, as well as innovative new programming around our Mainstage productions including the first annual Bay Street New Works Festival in April and Literature Live in the fall.  As the new artistic director of Bay Street and also as a new member of the East End community, I am deeply committed to making this theater a home for local artists. I hope everyone who is interested in working with Bay Street comes to these auditions, and I look forward to this opportunity to continue to get to know our artistic community.”

Conviction by Carey Crim, directed by Scott Schwartz, contract dates May 5 to June 15.
