Walking Shadow general auditions

Open Auditions for 2017-2018 Season

August 21, 22, 23

This is our chance to see you again or meet you! We use our season auditions to refresh our brains on who is out there, what you’re up to, and update our records.

Please prepare a short piece of no more than 2 minutes in length.

Please bring an up-to-date headshot and resume.

We will not be reading sides at these auditions.

These auditions are for non-Equity actors only.

All non-Equity actors are encouraged to audition. We welcome people of all ages, races, gender identities, gender expressions, etc.

Please note that for HATCHET LADY we will consider all actors who identify as female. Trans women are welcome. Actors of all genders are welcome to audition for 21 EXTREMELY BAD BREAKUPS and EQUIVOCATION.

If you wish to be considered for HATCHET LADY, please be prepared to sing 16 bars of a rock or country song. Song may be a capella, or you may bring your own backing/karaoke track on your phone that we can play through a speaker. We regret that we are unable to provide an accompanist.
