My friend is trying to stage his own play at a fringe festival. But when he held auditions, hardly anyone came. What should he do?

My friend wrote his first play and entered it in a festival. The festival accepted it so he started putting out flyers and buying ad space inviting actors to auditions.
But on the first day it was fruitless. We just sat there waiting for anyone to show up, except for one guy he knew already. He has a few weeks to address the situation. Are there people out there with experience dealing with similar challenges who could suggest what he should do?
