Casting for Homeward LA 2019.

Homeward LA 2019 is a citywide event (April 26th– May 5th) showcasing 11 monologues based on true stories from 11 individuals who have experienced homelessness. Multiple stage productions across the city will perform these monologues with the purpose of bringing attention to the homeless crisis in Los Angeles, while raising funds for The Midnight Mission, an amazing nonprofit on Skid Row

Though creating high-quality production is a priority, Homeward LA 2019 is also a community outreach/fundraising event seeking to inspire action around the homeless crisis. We hope to cast actors who are passionate about this cause and excited to share their participation with family and friends.

If cast, in general, actors will be asked to meet with their director 2-3 times to rehearse and 1 more time for a tech/run through. Most shows will have 1-2 performances.
