Alberta Theatre Projects is holding General Auditions Monday January 11 & Tuesday January 12, 2016
General Auditions are an opportunity for actors with previous theatre experience to introduce themselves and their work to the artistic team at Alberta Theatre Projects, and a chance for the artistic team at ATP to meet actors who are new to them. We encourage actors from all cultures, races, ethnicities, and gender identities, mental and physical abilities to apply for a General Audition.
Actors must be available to audition in Calgary. No video submissions will be accepted.
We invite actors to prepare a Musical or Non-Musical General Audition:
Musical General Audition: (no more than 5 minutes total in length)
– Prepare one contemporary monologue written by a Canadian playwright.
– Prepare one song that you feel best demonstrates your vocal range (an accompanist is available, or if you play an instrument you can choose to accompany yourself).
Non-Musical General Audition: (no more than 5 minutes total in length)
– Prepare two contrasting monologues from the contemporary repertoire. At least one should be written by a Canadian playwright.
To apply for a General Audition please submit the following materials on or before December 16, 2015:
– your brief cover letter that expresses your interest in our work at ATP
– your current headshot photograph
– your c.v. that details your theatre experience
Please indicate whether you are submitting for a MUSICAL or NON-MUSICAL audition, and if you require an accompanist or will play an instrument.
Please send all materials via email to Laurel Green, Artistic Associate at [email protected] using the subject header “General Auditions Musical or Non-Musical (please choose one) 2016.”
Only those actors selected for a General Audition will be contacted to schedule an audition time to be seen by ATP’s Producer Dianne Goodman and Artistic Associate Laurel Green.
Equity members will be seen first at all open audition calls.
CAEA members: please bring your membership card to the audition.
