Four days of auditions for two great plays! Come to any one day. Be prepared to move. You do not need to make an appointment—just show up!
Dress to move—try to avoid slippers or heels. If you play an instrument (and it’s portable), please bring it.
Fill out an audition form. (Linked below if you want to prepare in advance, but you can always fill one out when you arrive.)
We’ll take a photo of you for reference. Don’t worry, we won’t share it. You do not need to bring a headshot.
We’ll introduce ourselves and tell you a bit about the plays then lead a couple of warm-up games. These are icebreakers, but they’re also part of the audition process. We’re looking to see how well you listen and follow directions, among other things.
The rest of auditions will be “lukewarm” readings from the sides. Pick something and prepare (with partners if appropriate). We’ll call people in the order that they let us know they’re ready.
Feel free to choose whatever side you like best, whether the role is “appropriate” for you or not.
You can leave any time after you’ve read, or stick around and read again. We’d like everyone to read once before we read anyone twice. If you have to leave early, please let us know before you go, and definitely let us know if you’re not available for callbacks.
One Uddah Mid’summah
You’re auditioning for both plays (unless you specify otherwise).
Measure for Measure will rehearse and perform indoors. Note: this “problem play” contains adult themes with frank and explicit depictions of violence, sexuality, prostitution, and sexual harassment. See Additional Audition Info for more details.
One Uddah Mid‘summah will rehearse and perform outdoors (and in pidgin).
Note: if you’re only interested in one play (or a particular part in one play), you can indicate that on your audition form. Rehearsal venue, production schedule, language and content may, understandably, factor into your preferences.
Make sure you understand who you are, what you’re saying and why you’re saying it. If you’re not sure, ask (no shame). We’ll immediately have you read again with an adjustment but the first time through is all you. Make a strong choice. Have fun. Need more detailed advice?
Rehearsals vary by director but plan for 15-20 hours per week once full rehearsals begin, typically evenings from 6pm to 9:30pm but possibly Saturday or Sunday afternoons as well.
Note: all acting positions are unpaid.
