Auditions: Friday, March 18, 2011

This page contains auditions posted on Friday, March 18, 2011.

I want to continue this week's specific topic of discussion about getting an agent. I know we talked about this a while back, but it's worth bringing up again because of all of the exciting film projects currently floating around the Portland area. How important is having an agent in a smaller market like Portland? Are you currently signed, and does having an agent help you get work and exposure in Portland, or does it just serve a purpose on paper? If you don't have an agent, what steps are you taking to get signed? Share in the chat box below where you are with your career and how you feel about being represented by an agent.

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.

Auditions for ASSISTED LIVING will be this Saturday, March 19, 2:00PM at Sandy Actors Theatre

There are seven parts for ages 25 - 60 yrs. of age.

ASSISTED LIVING is a marvelous play that explores how Alzheimers effects a family and the decisions it must make. It is not a dark play at all. Rose who is 83 yrs. of age is a real character and she creates many laughs with her loss of memory and her determination to stay in her home.
There are also many moments of poignant drama as the family faces the inevitable decisions they must make.

ASSISTED LIVING is the winner of our play writing contest we scheduled two years ago. We received over 40 scripts from across the United States. The winner lives right here in Portland, Rich Rubin, a retired
geriatric physician.

Pay is $100.

This will be a cold read from the script.

For information, call Jim Wilhite, 503-253-7501

Directions to the theatre:

Sandy is nine miles east of Gresham right on Hwy. 26. About 3/4 of the way through town, watch for a big
ACE Hardware sign on your left. We are located directly behind ACE Hardware. Lots of free parking
