2021 Virtual Auditions

Thank you for your interest in The Magnetic Theatre's 2021 Virtual Auditions!

At present, we are auditioning for the first half of the season, which includes roles for actors age 18 and up.  We will announce another round of auditions for later in the season, once we have a better idea of how current public health concerns will play out.

If you are interested in backstage roles ONLY, please fill out our Tech Interest Form by clicking here: https://forms.gle/Gk4T9bK43NgmmpFC9.  We will reach out to potential tech and offstage folks as we determine the needs of our season.  If you are interested in BOTH onstage/onscreen AND backstage roles, please keep reading and schedule an audition.

Auditions this year will take place over Zoom, and details about how to connect to the meeting will be sent out the day of your appointment.  Before your scheduled time, please be sure to fill out our Audition Form: https://forms.gle/KfEiAbEejkPBGAPA8.  Please allow approximately 20 minutes to complete the form.  Please email any supporting materials you might have (headshot, resume/CV) to [email protected].  These materials are not required, but we do appreciate them.

As we are all aware, 2020 has been an interesting year for the theatre.  While we are still looking at how the upcoming year will evolve, our plans include a nine-show Mainstage Season, the continuation of Magnetic U and our New Play Development Program, and several Sideshow performances throughout the year. At this point, we are making plans to present work in whatever way best suits the situation in our country and community - some shows will be presented virtually, some outdoors, and for some shows our hope is that, finally, we will be back in the theatre space that we love so much.

Some of the projects we are planning so far are:

  • Wandering with Magnetic (or Something I Cared About), written by Jamie Knox and Travis Lowe, directed by Jason Phillips.  This outdoor show will take place along the Reed Creek Greenway in Asheville. Follow the journey of a couple in all the years and stages of their love, in a beautiful natural setting. 

  • In The Middle of Nowhere, written by Bret Murphy, directed by Katie Jones.  Cynthia Scott is a retired art professor who escapes to the Black Mountains of North Carolina after abandoning her partner on her deathbed in Atlanta. She purchases a run-down trailer and two acres of land with the idea of waiting for her own death in isolation and guilt. Despite her desire for independence, she eventually forms relationships with a young man recently released from prison, a Meals on Wheels volunteer, a mountain woman, and a man who has survived a near-death experience. These relationships help provide a counterweight to her feelings of shame and self-harm. The question is, will she accept forgiveness?

  • Kore, written by Gabrielle Orcha, directed by Jessica Johnson.  In this contemporary play based on the ancient myth of Persephone, a young, brazen woman, wanting independence and adventure, meets the magnetic and enigmatic Hades at a local bar. She willingly descends to the underworld for a visit, but through an unfortunate miscommunication, fears she must spend all of eternity there. While searching for her daughter in earnest, Demeter, the fierce and forceful mother, runs into Hecate, the old, charming, silly and sagacious bag lady. Will Demeter find Persephone? In this archetypal journey of individuation, will Persephone “find” herself?

  • Magnetic's One Act Play Festival, Plays & Directors TBD.  Our second annual production of short plays.  2020's festival featured 7 plays from different playwrights, directors, casts, and crews, and was live-hosted over Zoom, with a mix of live and pre-recorded performances, animation, and radio play formats.  While we do not yet know what 2021 will bring, there are sure to be a wide variety of opportunities to create!

Auditions will be held via Zoom, in 10-minute increments, during the following dates and times:

  • Saturday, January 9th, from 10am to 2pm;
  • Sunday, January 10th, from 1pm to 5pm;
  • and Monday, January 11th, from 6pm to 9pm.

Please review the available slots below and click on the button to sign up.

Auditionees are expected to prepare one 60-second monologue. Monologues should be memorized.

In addition, sides for specific shows may be provided to you in advance of your audition.  We do not expect that sides be memorized.

If you have any questions, please email [email protected]

Thank you! We look forward to seeing you!
