Alternate pieces of literature could originate from fiction, poetry, music, film or any other source. Actors may choose to read or memorize their selection. Actors should demonstrate their ability to make strong character choices and maintain realism in performance. Actors are encouraged to keep the total time of the general audition selection to four minutes or less.

Show Synopsis
Marianne is a cosmologist, keen on quantum theory and the idea that each of life’s infinite possibilities plays out in some parallel universe. Her chance encounter with Roland marks the beginning of a romance with countless outcomes. But when Marianne’s health begins to fail, the balance between destiny and freewill begins to shift. Eloquent, sweet and haunting, Constellations is a complete emotional journey from beginning to end.
