AUDITIONS -- General Auditions/Interviews
Sound Theatre Company is hosting general auditions for actors, singers, dancers, and other performers who are Deaf or have a disability. Through these auditions, we hope to learn more about and connect more deeply with the thriving community of artists in the region who identify as having a disability. Additionally, we hope to develop a pool of talent to fulfill local casting needs and to influence programming and casting decisions within our larger community of producing organizations. At this time we are only auditioning adult artists (16 and up).

Sound Theatre Company is not casting for any individual production. There is a small group of casting directors currently interested in either attending these auditions, or learning about the artists who choose to attend.

The goal for this round of auditions is to learn about and help to build, a local community of 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 social, cultural, or physical barriers.

We want to know about your interests, talents, experiences and also any accommodation, service, or resource that arts groups can provide to ensure that you can participate fully in our theatrical work.

10 minutes appointments **CAN** include any of the following:
• 2-minute prepared/memorized audition monologue.
• Prepared a cappella song. (No accompaniment will be provided.)
• An informal interview to discuss experiences and interests.
• Cold readings of “sides” (scenes from plays) provided by Sound Theatre Company. These will be made available in Braille, large print, or audio format upon request.
• A brief story, either prepared or told extemporaneously.

We are entering some new territory that may challenge the traditional conventions of auditions, rehearsal, and performance in Seattle theatre. Thank you so much for allowing us to learn how we can create supportive practices as we build an inclusive arts community that provides access for ALL artists and audience.

TO AUDITION:
• Submit an email or call to indicate your interest and 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 list of experiences)
**Previous experience is honored and respected but not required.
• PLEASE NOTE ANY ACCOMMODATIONS that we can provide to ensure ease of access. We hope to make the following available:
o ASL Interpretation
o Tactile Interpretation
o Braille Transcriptions
o Large Print materials
We will do our best to accommodate in any way that we can, including those ways we have not yet anticipated. Thank you for helping us to grow.

AEA actors are welcome and encouraged to attend. Please note your union status in your request for an audition time.

We will also accept links to video submissions or live auditions via Skype/Video Chat. We may follow up with some general questions that would have been covered in an informal interview.
