You will be given a 10 minute time slot and are asked to prepare 2 contrasting monologues, not to exceed 3 minutes total time. Headshots and résumés appreciated, but not required. Auditors include Directors for our 2008 season, the Director of the staged reading of A Christmas Carol (performances Dec 7 - 16, 2007) and other invited guests. Call 255-LIVE to schedule a time slot. Audition forms are available here.
If you are unable to attend the General Auditions for 2008, but wish to be added to our actor files and considered for roles in 2008, please mail with your resume (if you have one) and a headshot (a recent photo will do) to:
by Ernest Thompson
Casting: 4 men, 1 woman
If you were unable to attend our General Auditions, but wish to be considered for a role in this play please contact the director, Carla Poggemeyer.
Though there will not be separate auditions for each show in our 2008 season, Directors will hold separate call-backs. If you are invited to these call-backs and you did not participate in the General Auditions, you will be asked to formally audition at that time.
Detailed information, including synopsis, character descriptions and Director's expectations will be available at the General Auditions. You will be able to note your interest in specific plays, but it isn't necessary for you to be interested in any of them to participate in the General Auditions. Information about you will, however, be placed in the Dreamweavers database for access by our Directors and those of other companies.
The General Audition format is commonly used by both amateur and professional theater companies. It makes it possible for directors to see a great number of actors in a short amount of time and, since the actors make their interests known at the time they audition, the Directors will also know if they are likely to have to expand their search for cast members beyond the actors participating in the general auditions. This makes casting our plays simpler, easier and less time-consuming than by holding auditions for each play individually. The benefit to you, the actor, is that you will have a chance to prepare material in advance, rather than be faced with a cold reading. And you will only have to audition once to be considered for all of our shows for next year.
