SIGN UP FOR AUDITION (1) FIVE MINUTE SLOT
WHAT YOU’LL NEED
Headshot and Resume. Each performer is required to prepare a 3-minute audition. We suggest you prepare both a comic and or dramatic monologue in the tone of the plays. For callbacks, we will ask performers to read from the script. While knowledge of the source material is not required, we strongly recommend that performers have a cursory understanding of the world the play looks to reference.
*Note: Due to time constraints, the director(s) may stop performers before the end of the total 3 minutes.
WHAT WE’RE LOOKING FOR
All roles are available at this time. The director is planning to use adult actors for the roles but will see performers 16 and over.
For both productions, the directors will see performers of any race, socioeconomic class, color, nationality, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender, gender identity, neurological or physical ability, and education level.
For ‘Dracula’- a modern approach is being taken so that the story truly resonates with ANY audience. PTC will implement a blend of both traditional and nontraditional casting. We welcome and will see all races, genders, and body types.
‘THE 39 STEPS’ - Mix a Hitchcock masterpiece with a juicy spy novel, add a dash of Monty Python, and you have The 39 Steps, a fast-paced whodunit for anyone who loves the magic of theatre! This two-time Tony and Drama Desk Award-winning treat is packed with nonstop laughs, over 150 zany characters (played by a ridiculously talented cast of four), an onstage plane crash, handcuffs, missing fingers, and some good old-fashioned romance!
‘THE 39 STEPS’

- ANNABELLA SCHMIDT/PAMELA/MARGARET (F)

‘DRACULA’ - “I want your fear.” This new adaptation restores the suspense and seduction of Bram Stoker’s classic novel to the stage. As Count Dracula begins to exert his will upon London residents, they try to piece together the clues of his appearances—in a valiant attempt to save themselves from a hideous fate. Rich with humor and horror, this play paints a wickedly theatrical picture of Stoker’s famous vampire.
