Digital Open Auditions for professional East Midlands performers

Thu 30 Apr 2020


We’re holding digital open auditions with our friends at Nottingham Playhouse for performers (age 18+) who have trained or worked professionally and were either born, raised or are currently living in the East Midlands.

These auditions are not for a specific project; they are an opportunity to expand our casting pool of local performers for future projects.

Auditions will take place on Zoom with our Artistic Director Nikolai Foster and Adam Penford, Artistic Director of Nottingham Playhouse. The auditions will consist of a short chat and the performance of a two minute monologue of the performer’s choice. Unfortunately there won’t be time to perform the monologue more than once to allow us to see as many actors as possible.


Who can apply?

We are looking for performers who have trained or worked professionally*.
You must be over 18 and either born, raised or currently living in the East Midlands. We actively encourage applications from a diverse range of backgrounds.

*A professional performer is someone who has worked as a performer with a professional creative team on a show, paid or unpaid, for a minimum of a one week run.


When will the auditions take place?

We will be holding Auditions on 07 May 2020. Please only apply if you are available on that date.


How can I apply?

The deadline for applications is Midnight on Sunday May 3.
