18-19 Season Programming Change (notification dated 28 July 2018)

Our facility, known as The Usual Place (TUP), has been undergoing renovations this summer. We have been informed that construction is behind to an extent that we feel it’s necessary to make some changes to our 18-19 Season programming. BURIED CHILD has been removed from this season, and THE ELEPHANT MAN has been rescheduled to take its place on our calendar. The rest of our website will be updated ASAP. We apologize for any confusion or inconvenience.

A Public Fit Theatre Company Auditions

General auditions for our 18-19 Season are CLOSED.

Callbacks on Aug 12 are BY INVITATION ONLY.

ALSO CONSIDER…  To make yourself known to Las Vegas’s theatrical/performance community at large (or if your schedule conflicts with our available audition appointments), check out the Las Vegas Theatre Alliance auditions being held Aug 3-4. APF will be present along with many other companies looking for talent.

AUDITION SIDES

Performers, you should familiarize yourselves with ALL the GENERAL side(s) appropriate for the role(s) in which you are interested; you may be asked to read from any/all of them. For your initial audition, you choose ONE from among those appropriate sides to read; we trust you to choose the side that best presents what you can bring to possible roles. We will provide a partner to read against. Memorization is not required, but you want to be familiar enough to offer strong choices and take direction. Also, please be sure to read the play(s) that interest you and be prepared to discuss it/them if asked.

The Elephant Man by Bernard Pomerance

Actors invited to participate in CALLBACKS should prep ANY/ALL sides that include the character’s name for which they’ve been asked to read.

Small Mouth Sounds by Bess Wohl

Actors invited to participate in CALLBACKS should prep ANY/ALL sides that include the character’s name for which they’ve been asked to read. This may mean as few as one or as many three.

Buried Child by Sam Shepard

  • We regret that this title has been removed from our 18-19 Season. See notification above.

STAGED READINGS  Auditions for those interested ONLY in readings are handled differently. Completed audition forms ARE required (use the “role preference” field to indicate your specific interest) . Sides are NOT provided.  Each reading has its own director who is responsible for his/her own casting. See below to find out whether or not the director for the reading(s) that are of interest to you will be present at auditions.

If your interest is in a reading for which the director is present, you should choose from among the available sides the one with which you can present yourself to your best advantage. You decide whether this means a similar character, similar situation, &/or simply the one side that lets you “leave it all on the floor” so to speak.

If your interest is in a reading for which the director is not present (or you are unavailable when s/he is present), your submitted audition materials will be compiled and presented to the director(s) individually; you will NOT be scheduled during our general auditions. If the director(s) are interested in seeing you, they will contact you independently to arrange an audition/interview. Please note that if the staged reading is some months out, it may be some time before the director(s) begin their casting process.

  • No Exit by Jean-Paul Sartre, directed by Mark Gorman (performance September 2018) – Mark will be present on Saturday afternoon.
  • Appropriate by Branden Jacobs-Jenkins, directed by Scottie Scott (performance January 2019) – Scottie will be present Friday evening after 7pm and all day Saturday. (Click here for a small sample of the script that includes the playwright’s character descriptions.)
  • Three Tall Women by Edward Albee, directed by Barbara Brennan (performance March 2019) – Barbara will be present on both Friday & Saturday.
  • Consent by Nina Raine, directed by Andrew Calvert (performance June 2019) – Andrew is unable to join us.
