ACT General Auditions
ACT – A Contemporary Theatre will hold one (1) day of Equity Principal Auditions for local actors on Monday, February 4, from 10:00 am – 1:30 pm and from 2:30 pm – 6:00 pm. Representative for the theatre will be Margaret Layne, Director of Casting.
Although we are required at this audition to give priority in scheduling to AEA members and Equity Membership Candidates, in past years we have had the opportunity to also see 40+ non-union actors from the Wait List, so members of the non-union community are strongly encouraged to sign up for a possible appointment!
Additional general auditions for non-union actors will be scheduled at a later date(s) for actors on that Wait List who don’t get a spot or who aren’t available on the 4th.
We especially want to connect with diverse artists in our community, and hope that actors of all races/ethnicities, gender identities, neuro-diversities, and the diversely abled will sign up to share some of their work with us.
PREPARATION: two short, contrasting monologues: either one classical/one contemporary, or two contrasting contemporary pieces. Song welcome but optional. An accompanist will be provided. Total presentation not to exceed three (3) minutes for AEA/EMC, two (2) minutes for non-union.
Wait Lists will be maintained for (a) EMC Candidates and (b) non-union actors. Wait List applicants will be notified of appointments as they may be available when all AEA members have been accommodated, but no later than Friday, February 1.
Headshots and resumes should be brought in on the day of the auditions, along with AEA membership card or proof of EMC status as appropriate.
Equity members from outside Seattle may request an individual audition at a later date when they are visiting the city. Please contact Margaret Layne, Director of Casting, by phone at (206) 292-7660 ext. 1226, or via e-mail at [email protected].
10:00am - 5:30pm PST
