Auditions: Wednesday, February 9, 2011

This page contains auditions posted on Wednesday, February 9, 2011.

This is turning out to be a busy week, which is always exciting!

Wondering where the Seattle auditions have disappeared to? I received feedback that it may be helpful to separate the locations since many in the Portland area hope to solely book work here.
Check out my new blog for Seattle area auditions here!

Thank you for providing feedback and suggestions on how to make this blog more useful.

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.



Casting Hunt

The search is on for hidden thespians in the Portland area.
If you are a passionate actor or actress with a burn to tell
your character's story through a motivated performance,
then we are in need of you!

We especially need your dedicatication to this short film and your
commitment to yourself to do what you love best-- Great acting!

The film deals with themes revolving around the way the economic times
are effecting our lives, the type of work we settle for to make ends meet
and the magic that can happen when one finally tells the boss to take this job and shove it--
just before hitting the road into the unkown.

Auditions will take place on Wednesday February 23rd and Thursday the 24th,
from 4-8pm both days. The shoot dates are March 11 through 13th and also on the 24th.
You do not need to be available all days, so go ahead and contact us if you are available
during any of these dates.

We are looking for all types (preferably over 21 because of shooting locations- must be over 18).
All food will be provided as well as lodging for those working on the 11th and 12th.
Please send a headshot when you reply to our post.

Best of luck!

PDX ETC Needs One Good Man

Hello, gentlemen!

PDX ETC is doing a show. It is neato. We need a dude who is also neato to add his neatoness to our show. Are you that dude?

The Show: Aftermath. A new show by the fantastic Phil Meyer written especially for us. It's a short show dealing with three siblings discussing the estate of their late father.

The Run-Down: This show was specifically written to be performed in bars and coffee shops, hopefully bringing good theater to a new audience. We have three weekends booked at the lovely Vergnetti's Coffee in North Portland (the last two weekends of March and the first weekend in April). We will hopefully also be adding more dates at local watering holes.

Interested? Know anyone who might be? It's gonna be neato.
