All graduated 8th - 12th grade students are invited to audition for Acme’s summer production. 

All who audition will be cast!


Dear Harvey

By Patricia Loughrey, Music by Thomas Hodges


Come explore the life and groundbreaking, lasting impact of gay activist and politician Harvey Milk, through the words of the people who knew him best. This documentary-style play weaves together interviews, multimedia and music in a tribute to the transformative power of community organizing. In the forty-five years since Harvey called his community out into the streets, and into the voting booth, how far have we come in our struggle for LGBT rights? And where is that struggle leading us now?

We invite and welcome company members of all ethnicities, races, gender identities, ages, and body types, as well as performers with disabilities, to join us.


We hold open auditions before each production.

Audition sign-up info will be posted on this page as it becomes available. 

Actors are asked to complete a Google form, sign up for a 10-min slot, prepare a monologue, attend the 10-minindividual slot, and then attend a group session.  Technicians are asked to sign up on the Google form and then we will contact you regarding technical work as the  process unfolds!
