This year for Ahtspot’s 5th Annual Open Call, we are taking it to a whole new level, 3 Cities!!! The Ahtspot Open Call will be in Boston at Improv Boston’s Main Stage Theater on April 6th, Tazza Café in Providence, RI on June 21st and in Connecticut (Location TBD) as part of the Film Industry Mixer on August 28th.

So first up on Tuesday, April 6th 2009 at 7:00pm at Improv Boston’s Main Stage Theater (40 Prospect St. in Central Square, Cambridge, MA), Ahtspot.com presents the 5th Annual Ahtspot Open Call! This event is one of the events leading up to Boston’s 48 Hour Film Project. This is an event for actors, filmmakers and theater professionals like no other. The Ahtspot Open Call is an open forum audition show where talented actors can audition for the crowd of directors, producers and even other actors. Each actor gets no more than two minutes on stage, and if they go over their time they are hosed down with silly string to let them know it is time to go. This popular event has been very well attended in the past. Check out this video from last year’s event: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9rTZ0x6cAUM

Directors, producers and other theater and film professionals—this is a free event to check out the local New England pool of talent. From 7 to 9pm you will be able to watch actors audition for the audience, then after the show stick around and approach your favorite talent. Order a drink, relax, take notes and enjoy the show!

This event is run to help promote the 48 Hour Film Project Boston 2010! This is a contest where filmmakers are challenged to make a complete short film in just 48 hours. Teams are invited and welcome to the event to cast for their movies, meet other teams, collect additional crew and network with other film and theater professionals. For more information visit www.48hourfilm.com/boston.

Actors, sign up begins at 6:00pm and there can be a line. Actors will be taken on a first come, first serve basis. Ahtspot.com clients will have the ability to pre-register online. However if anyone is not there when your name is called to go on stage, you will be skipped and added to the end of the line. Not all performers may get a chance to perform if time runs out. Remember you have two minutes or less to do your piece. You can perform anything you want, it is your time to shine! So get there early or sign up in the members section at www.ahtspot.com.

Ahtspot's Open Call is an 18+ Event - 21+ to drink. Children under 18 must be with a parent/guardian.
And don't forget that Providence is June 21st and Connecticut is August 28th.
Hope to see you there
