This post will continue to be updated as new audition notices are discovered, so please check back throughout the day.

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.



male, mid 20s-30s, non speaking, no exp necessary (Portland)

Need a male lead in a "music video" for a personal project.
mid 20s-30s
slim build
around average height
without striking features but would like eyes to be expressive and prefer it to be blue
able to convey confusion, remorse, sadness, etc. range of subtle emotion through facial gestures without speaking and able to stand still for several minutes

location will most likely be in the pearl district in the late afternoon/evening for 1-2 hours
would like to shoot next Tuesday if possible

Far as compensation goes, I can offer you choice of $20 cash, or meal and drink with us afterwards, or $100 credit towards my services.
Checkout my website for options and to see if I am even worth your time:

This is not going to be an official music video for a band but more for my own personal experimentation.
So not going to say it will be good for your reel or for exposure and all that crap like some people try to sell.
If you have time and looking to be part of something creative, then this just might work out.

If interested, please send photos, links, height, size, and anything else you want to tell me.

Looking for three actors/actresses (Portland, OR)

Director looking for three actors/actresses.

1. Typical suburban father
2. Typical suburban mother
3. child (son or daughter) ages 8 -15

Also looking for a child's room (for the child actor listed above) or a living room of a SUBURBAN family (no bachelor pads, lol)

This is a short 60 sec commercial for a contest. Free lunch! If I win, I will compensate you for your time. The shoot will probably take about an hour or so, 4 hours at the latest. If not, you will have a good video for your reel. I prefer people who ENJOY doing this and are good at it. Please, no first timers without experience. Please have a reel and headshot. If I work with you and everything turns out great (so far, I've only worked with good people, talented actors), I'll definitely hire you in the future and pay you what you truly deserve. I consider these videos stepping stones to future endeavors. I'm new here and am excited about networking with talented, creative people. I have videos of my past work if you're interested.

I'm looking to shoot sometime next week, schedules permitting. This project needs to be shot no later than the 25th of July, hopefully sooner.

Thank you and hope to hear from you soon!

"Dearly Departed" to Audition at TITG!

Theatre in the Grove announces auditions for the southern comedy
"Dearly Departed", written by David Bottrell and Jessie Jones, and
directed by Zachary Centers.

Audition dates are Monday, August 15th at 7:00 p.m. and Tuesday,
August 16th at 7:00 p.m., at the Theatre, 2028 Pacific Avenue in Forest Grove.

This hilarious show will need men and women ages 20-70. Auditions
will consist of reading from the script.

All roles are volunteer.

In the Baptist backwoods of the Bible Belt, the beleaguered Turpin
family proves that living and dying in the South are seldom tidy and
always hilarious. Despite their earnest efforts to pull themselves
together for their father's funeral, the Turpin's other problems keep
overshadowing the solemn occasion: Firstborn Ray-Bud drinks himself
silly as the funeral bills mount; Junior, the younger son, is
juggling financial ruin, a pack of no-neck monster kids, and a wife
who suspects him of infidelity in the family car; their sister,
Delightful, copes with death as she does life, by devouring junk
food; and all the neighbors add more than two cents. As the situation
becomes fraught with mishap, Ray-Bud says to his long-suffering wife,
"When I die, don't tell nobody. Just bury me in the backyard and tell
everybody I left you." Amidst the chaos, the Turpins turn for comfort
to their friends and neighbors, an eccentric community of misfits who
just manage to pull together and help each other through their hours
of need, and finally, the funeral.

Bud Turpin: Elderly father who dies in the first scene. 50-80 (Will
likely double another role.)

Raynelle Turpin: Bud's widow. Christian, family woman who tells it
like it is in a quiet unassuming manor. 50-80

Ray-Bud Turpin: Bud & Raynelle's elder son. Recovering alcoholic who
likes to take a nip every now and then. Terribly scared of death and
none to happy that he has to foot the bill for the funeral. Late 30's

Lucille Turpin: Ray-Bud's wife. Desperately wants to have a baby but
cannot carry to term. Motherly type who tries to take care of
everyone. Late 30's

Junior Turpin: Bud & Raynelle's younger son. Completely broke because
of a bad business decision. Recently had an affair that his wife
finds out about at the beginning of the play. 30's

Suzanne Turpin: Junior's wife. Completely broke because of Junior's
bad business decision. Could have been a professional singer but
married instead. A bit passive/aggressive in personality. Sings a
hymn at the funeral 30's

Marguerite: Bud's sister. Devoutly and aggressively Christian. Very
loud and controlling of her offspring and of any situation. 50-80

Royce: Marguerite's son. Out of work with no future plans which his
mother never lets him forget. More of an observer than a doer. 30's

Delightful: Bud & Raynelle's daughter. Overweight young woman who
never really was allowed to grow up. Eats constantly and speaks only
when spoken to. 20-30 (Must be able to belch on command)

Reverend Hooker: parish minister. A minister tired of ministering.
Becomes "ill" at the funeral.

Veda: An elderly friend of the family. Caregiver to her sickly
husband and doesn't let anyone forget it. 60-80 (Will likely double
another role.)

Norval: Veda's husband. Hard of hearing and hard to understand. Being
kept alive by oxygen masks and medication. 60-80 (Will likely double
another role.)
Nadine: A younger pregnant friend of the family. Seems to get
pregnant just by looking at a man. All of her children are named
after famous actors. 20's (Will likely double another role.)

Clyde: Ray-Bud's boss. Knows exactly how he wants to die. First
priority is to "take care of our own" 40's (Will likely double another role.)

Juanita: Cousin by marriage. Very wealthy, very proper. Helps serve
the food at the luncheon. Bit of a gossip. 30-50

Miracle Auditions: OEDIPUS EL REY

Hello Actors!

Putting out a second call for auditions for OEDIPUS EL REY, which will be produced by Miracle Theatre next May, 2012.

Stipend offered, AEA not casting available. Looking for male actors, 20s-40s, Latino and non-Latino, but comfortable with bilingual dialogue, for the roles of the CORO ~ Please read below for details.


Written by Luis Alfaro

Directed by Elizabeth Huffman

May 4 to 26, 2012

A story that “crackles with electricity” —Washington Examiner

With Chicano swagger and sly sense of humor, Luis Alfaro transports Sophocles’ tragedy to the mean streets of East L.A. Here Oedipus does hard time for ripping off a Costco, Jocasta splashes on the Jean Naté while glued to “All My Children” and the oracle takes cash only. But the word on the street is not good and the passion Oedipus has for one woman will violate our most sacred law.

Rehearsals begin: March 19, 2012

Opens: May 4 /12

Runs 4 weeks, Thursday-Sunday, 15 performances through 5/26/12

CORO: (20-40’s) The chorus of 3 will play several roles and they are central to this fabric of this play. They should be a variety of ages and types but all of them are hardened criminals who each have their unique place in the prison world. Actors should be fit, and agile (be prepared to move in the audition!). Director Elizabeth Huffman is looking for 3 different kinds of criminal types, so making a strong character choice will be welcome. All should be comfortable with some Bi-lingual dialogue in Spanish, but do not need to be Latino.

Auditions will be held:

Wednesday, August 10th

6:30 – 8pm (please do not arrive without first contacting director Elizabeth Huffman, thanks!)

At the Milagro Theatre, 525 SE Stark, Portland, 97214

Thanks and best wishes,
