Auditions – Tiny Beautiful Things

This is an open call for a series of live performances of Tiny Beautiful Things by Nia Vardalos and Cheryl Strayed. Directed by Wanda Boe.

Based on the best-selling book by Cheryl Strayed, this is a play about reaching when you’re stuck, healing when you’re broken, and finding the courage to take on the questions which have no answers.

Rehearsals will be in person and everyone must be fully vaccinated to audition and participate. For more health and safety information, please see our full policy at valleycenterstage.org/health-safety.

Valley Center Stage strives to be a welcoming and inclusive environment to people of all races, genders, beliefs and sexualities. While the characters in this play are cisgender and will be portrayed as such, we welcome actors of any gender to audition for any role.
