AUDITIONS -- General Auditions/Interviews
Sound Theatre Company is holding general auditions for actors with disabilities to support the work of our 2018 Season of plays. At this time we are only auditioning adult actors (16 and up).

Our season will consist of three mainstage productions, a reading series of plays by playwrights with disabilities and other projects associated with Making Waves, Sound Theatre’s performance program of readings and experimental works.

The goal for this round of auditions is to learn about, and help build, a local community of actors, performers and theatre artists who self-identify as disabled. We recognize that some disabilities are “invisible” and some are “visible”: we welcome all who self-identify as “disabled” because of their lived experience with existing barriers.

We want to know about your interests, talents, experiences and also any accommodations you may require to participate fully in our theatrical work.

10 minutes appointments **CAN** include any of the following:
• 2 minute prepared/memorized audition monologues.
• Prepared a cappella songs. (no accompaniment will be provided)
• Interview to discuss experiences and interests.
• We can provide “sides” (scenes from plays) for review and an opportunity to read with another actor (we will provide the actor or “reader”).
• Audition form – an information form provided in advance and at the audition.


We know we are entering some new territory that may challenge the traditional conventions of auditions, rehearsal and performance in local theatre. Help us learn to provide the best and most supportive practices as we build a community that seeks to humanize and provide access for ALL.

TO AUDITION:
• Submit an email of interest and any preference for a time slot.
• Submit a resume of acting and performance experience on stage or in film. (If you don’t have a resume, provide a one-page list of experiences)
• **Previous experience is honored and respected but not required.
• PLEASE NOTE ANY ACCOMMODATIONS you would require (ASL interpreter, wheelchair accessibility, a space for preparation, fragrance-free space, Braille translations, other…). We will do our best to accommodate.

AEA actors: we currently do not have a budget to support AEA contracts, but we would love to work towards that possibility. Please submit if you are interested in auditioning and/or being considered.

$500 stipend
