Auditions: Saturday, March 05, 2011

This page contains auditions posted on Saturday, March 05, 2011.

It is so encouraging to hear about people booking work, so thank you to those of you who shared your experiences with us.

It sounds like there are some good theater performances out there right now, like The Lieutenant of Inishmore at ART, which was mentioned in the chat box. What are some other incredible performances or productions you have seen lately? It is always good to support fellow actors by seeing their work, and this seems to be much easier to do with theater than in film. However, Portland is getting better about screening work locally, which was the case last night with the Stripperland premiere.

Are you supporting local actors in theater and film by being an audience member?

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 for female lead in independent film

Casting for a quirky Indie-drama. Thora Birtch in "Ghost World" would be very similar to what we are casting for... A large part of this film does not require speaking as the film is 2/3rds music video. If you are interested send a head shot and tell us a bit about your acting experiences.
