OTHER
7 Deadly Sins is a unique theatrical experiment, in which seven vacant storefronts on Miami Beach’s famed Lincoln Road will be transformed into enclosed theatrical stages separated from a socially distanced audience that watches through the glass while listening on headphones.

Equity’s contracts prohibit discrimination. Equity is committed to diversity and encourages all its employers to engage in a policy of equal employment opportunity designed to promote a positive model of inclusion. As such, Equity encourages performers of all ethnicities, gender identities, and ages, as well as performers with disabilities, to submit.

SEEKING
Video Submissions from actors of all races, ethnicities, genders, ages, and sizes for Miami New Drama’s production of 7 Deadly Sins. Especially seeking cohabiting couples/roommates. Performance venues are located in Miami Beach, so local actors particularly encouraged to submit.
