Bid-a best you can be!

Get the chance of a (virtual) lifetime and support a great cause! TFM, in cooperation with Open House, is auctioning off two roles where you can experience being part of a live streamed reading of a Shakespeare classic with members of C.A.S.T.

C.A.S.T. (Company of Actors in Streamlined Theatre) is an annual staged reading series that plays to sold out audiences every January to February. Get the C.A.S.T. experience alongside theater actors Mako Alonso, Reb Atadero, Cathy Azanza-Dy, Maronne Cruz, Tarek El Tayech, Wanggo Gallaga, Nelsito Gomez, Jill Peña, Dean Daniel Rosen, and Brian Sy in a live online reading of an abridged version of “Twelfth Night” by William Shakespeare on April 18, 4pm. Three online rehearsals included.

What you win:

  1. Your online acting debut as either (male role) or (female role).
  2. Three rehearsals with the cast.
  3. A playbill of your choice from our playbill collection, which will be delivered after the enhanced community quarantine ends.
