ACT General Auditions
Sign ups will begin at 5:00 am on 10/7/2019
ACT - A Contemporary Theatre - will hold two (2) days of Equity Principal Auditions for local actors on:
- Monday, October 21, 2019 from 10:00am - 6:00pm
- Tuesday, October 22 from 12:00pm - 8:00pm
The 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, in past years we have had the opportunity to also see 40+ EMC and non-union actors from the Wait List on each audition day, so members of the non-union community are strongly encouraged to sign up for a possible appointment!
Actors of all races/ethnicities, gender identities, disabilities, and neuro-diversities are encouraged to share their work with us. Most characters we encounter currently are on the binary and written with he/him or she/her pronouns, and that is reflected in the casting breakdown of available roles. Despite that linguistic limitation, however, ACT casting strives to be as inclusive as possible and we invite gender non-conforming, gender-queer, transgender, and non-binary actors to submit for the roles they most identify with. Race/ethnicity is indicated only when specified by the playwright as integral to character and/or narrative; otherwise actors of all races and ethnicities are considered for available roles.
- Two short, contrasting monologues: either one classical/one contemporary, or two contrasting contemporary pieces.
- Song are welcome, but optional. An accompanist will be provided ONLY during the following time periods: 10/21 between 2:30pm - 6:00pm AND 10/22 between 12:00pm - 3:30pm.
Total presentation not to exceed three (3) minutes for AEA/EMC, two (2) minutes for non-union.
- AEA Membership Card and/or proof of EMC status, as appropriate
Wait Lists will be maintained for:
(a) EMC Candidates
(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, October 18.
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].
