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.
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.
