Are you an actor looking for steady, part-time work? Do you want to work with a professional, mission-driven, touring theater company? 2nd Act is hiring actors who have the flexibility for shows throughout the year!

2nd Act is a newly merged organization of Improbable Players (IP) and COAAST (Creating Outreach About Addiction Support Together) that has been using theater performances and workshops to address addiction and the opioid epidemic for the combined past 37+ years. Together they provide educational programming & workshops to youth across OH, MA, NY, and RI and work with schools, organizations, and other nonprofits to spread their message and support to a wide audience. Our performances are 30-40 minute plays followed by a 20-minute talkback and Q&A with the audience. These plays are based on true stories. We are casting actors to perform multiple roles in multiple shows.

*We require all of our actors to be in recovery from drug and alcohol use, or have a lived experience with substance use disorder (i.e. lived with family / significant other with
substance use disorder, deeply affected by Substance Use Disorder)

*We do require all actors to show proof of Covid-19 vaccination prior to employment.

*We strongly encourage people of color, LGBTQIA+, and differently-abled people to audition!

Pay starts at $120 per show, $85/virtual show, $25/hr for in-person rehearsal, and $15/hr for virtual rehearsals. The shows you sign up for are up to you! Actors typically perform at 1-10 shows per month. We are a non-equity company.
