The Listening Hour
Wednesday March 24
6:30 - 7:30 pm
The virtual Listening Hour is an opportunity for a small group of people to connect by sharing personal stories. For those of you familiar with Playback Theatre, the process is playback-like, without the playing back. The Listening Hour is designed to generate positive energy and connection.
Each virtual Listening Hour group is limited to 5 participants, with Michael Kennedy as the guide.
Register in advance for this meeting:

Creative Action Unlimited is holding open virtual auditions for our November 2021 film, The Climb. This production will focus on class and race, and will be offered as an independent film and as a companion piece to Whitewashed: the racism project. The Climb will be directed by Michael Kennedy, assistant directed by Maghen Ryan, and filmed by Logan Rando.
There is no need to prepare in advance for auditions. We’ll be reading from provided materials and everyone auditioning will be present in the Zoom room together. Please send an email to or a text to 518-496-4992 to let Michael know you plan to participate.
We are committed to a diverse cast of approximately 7 actors to work together virtually to develop this original production, with Michael’s guidance. Based on the availability of the cast, we will meet on Zoom from March – September to develop scripted material and build an ensemble, and then we will film in September. This collaborative process requires willingness to share personal experiences with the group, occasionally interview others about the topic, and write performance pieces, as agreed. It will also require that all cast members have completed vaccinations for COVID-19 by the time of filming.
We recognize that this script development process may be new to some of you but we encourage you to take the risk! Creative Action Unlimited is dedicated to providing a safe space for the exploration of difficult social issues and has an established history of strong artistic collaboration among members of the creative team.
