Want to be part of a Minnesota Fringe Festival show this summer? There are 100+ Fringe producers, and many of them are looking for cast members for their show!
Minnesota Fringe Festival is gathering submissions for Virtual Unified Auditions. There is no deadline, but all producers will have access to audition submissions and may begin contacting actors on April 15. We suggest you submit your audition before that time.
VIRTUAL AUDITIONS ONLY; THERE WILL NOT BE AN IN-PERSON OPTION THIS YEAR.
Use our Virtual Unified Auditions form to fill in your contact information, upload your headshot and resume, and attach your video audition link ideally by April 15th, 2020.
PLEASE NOTE: This virtual form will only work for those with a Google-based email account. If you do not have this, please contact [email protected] for alternative submission opportunities.
Your submission will be added to a database that will be accessible to all Minnesota Fringe Festival producers and may be contacted at any time beginning April 15.
While it is not required to submit a resume/headshot/video, a more complete submission is more likely to catch the eye of a producer. If you plan to fill in the full submission, please make sure you have all of your files and links at the ready before you fill out the form:
RESUME: must be in document or PDF form, no larger than 1MB
HEADSHOT: must be in PDF, .jpg, or .png form, no larger than 1MB
VIDEO LINK: If you would like to submit a video audition--and we highly suggest you do--you'll want to film it and upload it to a YouTube or Vimeo channel and submit the link in the appropriate field on this form. Make sure the video is either public or open to view by anyone who has the link. Your audition can be anything you'd like--a monologue, a dance, a comedy routine, a magic trick--there are no parameters and no time limit, but we do have suggestions....
VIDEO AUDITION SUGGESTIONS
1. At the beginning of the video, state your name and what you will be performing. This way if you are doing a monologue and a dance, for example, a producer who is only looking for dance will know to skip ahead.
2. It's best to keep your pieces short; most producers will tune out after 2 minutes.
3. If you are performing a dance or song backed with pre-recorded music, make sure the music is original or royalty-free and not from a copyrighted source. Many copyrighted songs have an electronic signature that YouTube and Vimeo can detect and they may pull your video down due to copyright violation. Remember that even classical music is copyrighted by the orchestra/bands who recorded them.
4. Put your NAME and "2020 MN Fringe Audition" in the text title of the video.
