September 29 - October 2
Albert Taylor Theatre, Tickets: $12-14

A surrealistic audition has a group of actors wondering what the invisible yet omnipotent directors might be seeking and what may be required of them. The fierce competition among them, however, makes the goal of winning take precedence over all else. HEADSHOT takes a sideways look at our need for acceptance and our desperate search for individuality.
