Interested actors should submit a recent headshot and resume along with a brief letter out lining your experience and interest in performing queer theatre for children to firstname.lastname@example.org. The deadline to apply is August 15, 2019.
Theatre Outré is committed to inclusive hiring practices and performers from all ethnic, religious and gender identities and backgrounds are encouraged to apply.
Auditions will take place in Lethbridge at Club Didi on September 15 & 16.
Only those selected to audition will be contacted. Applicants who obtain an audition slot will be asked to prepare the following:
1. One monologue no longer than two minutes in length that showcases a physically dynamic character suitable for a young audience.
2. A performance piece WITHOUT TEXT that is no longer than two minutes in length. We are looking for direct, word-free communication with the audience (no fourth wall). If you have access to and would like to use mask, a clown nose, puppetry, etc., please do, but it is not essential.
3. A group audition portion where three actors will be given characters and scenarios and then asked to improvise using mask and/or puppetry together. We will provide the masks and puppets.
