Auditions: Tuesday, February 1, 2011

This page contains auditions posted on Tuesday, February 1, 2011.

With the first day of February here, it sounds like many of us are successfully taking advantage of audition opportunities, and are booking lots of work! Congratulations to those who have booked work recently, and please continue to share this with the group to inspire and encourage us to keep on auditioning.

Cameron, welcome to the Portland Acting Community. There is no need to be nervous because I have found this to be a very warm, welcoming acting community.

Lauren, we'd love to hear who you ended up shooting your headshots with! So many recommendations flowed in, and I was able to compile this information on the Resources/Links page, so feel free to check it out.

Also, if you are a fan of the blog, please share this with actor friends. If you have any feedback for me on how to improve my blog, share this with me so that I may work on improving the blog.

Welcome to the cabin of Norman and Ethel Thayer. They have returned to their summer home on Golden Pond for the forty-eighth year. He is a retired professor, nearing eighty, with heart palpitations and a failing memory- but still as tart-tongued, observant and eager for life as ever. Ethel, ten years younger, and the perfect foil for Norman , delights in all the small things that enrich their long life together. They are visited by their divorced, middle-aged daughter and her fiance', who then go to Europe , leaving his teenage son behind for the summer. The boy quickly becomes the "grandchild" the elderly couple have longed for and shows Norman he still has a few things to learn. Join us on the Pond, to glimpse the sometimes choppy waters of facing one's own Autumn beside those we love and still struggle to understand. Contains some adult language and themes.

Rehearsals will begin Sat. March 12th, performances run May 6th-29th.

185 SE Washington St.
Hillsboro, OR 97123
