Auditions: Tuesday, June 19, 2012

NOTE:  This blog will be returning shortly.  With the addition of new community groups in the area discussing various types of available acting work, there have been many requests brought to my attention on ways to improve this free resource. 

I will be working to accommodate your requests.

Please be aware that I am not the creator of the audition posts found on this page, but do my best to post only what appear to be legitimate paid and unpaid jobs for local actors, models, and crew. 

Direct all mail of concern regarding specific posts to the address found on the post itself, and not to me - I have no control over whether a large corporation chooses to pay their extras/actors or not, but thanks for sending me your thoughts on that recent craigslist post.

I will be making some site adjustments based on the feedback provided by many - separating paid and unpaid projects, student and stipend (copy/imdb) projects, and those for crew and modeling (those outside of acting).

This site will return on Saturday, June 30, with these changes made.

Keep the discussion going and the appropriate feedback coming my way.


This post contains auditions posted on Tuesday, June 19, 2012.

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.

REMINDER: Auditions this Saturday for VRT's A Break in the Clouds!

Valley Repertory Theatre, Newberg's own professional theatre company, is holding open auditions for its first production of the 2012-2013 season.

Titled A Break in the Clouds: Stories of Newberg, this original play is based on interviews of local people, offering a unique glimpse at local history. Featuring an ensemble of 6-10 actors of various ages and cultural backgrounds, the play will run for three weekends between September 20-October 7, 2012. Rehearsals are slated to begin in late July.

Auditions will take place Saturday 23, 3:30-6pm at the Chehalem Cultural Center's Central Stage. No prior experience or preparation is necessary but auditioning actors will be expected to stay for the entire duration of either audition day. Comfortable clothing should be worn.

Due to a generous grant from the Yamhill County Cultural Coalition, performers will receive a small stipend for their work.

Valley Repertory Theatre (VRT) was incorporated in early 2011 as a 501c3 non-profit organization in Newberg, Oregon. Founders Stephen Pick and Caleb Thurston are graduates of George Fox University's theatre program. Having taught and directed for several Portland-area schools and theatres, they felt drawn back to the community where they met and studied together. The company's first production was an original play titled Walk a Mile: Stories of Newberg. It featured the interwoven biographies of seven local people from all walks of life and received overwhelmingly positive response from the community. Its success was followed by three other productions in the inaugural season including the holiday classic A Christmas Carol, Cormac McCarthy's The Sunset Limited, and the Pulitzer Prize-winning comedy, Harvey. 2012-2013 will be the company's second season of live theatrical performances.

For more information about Valley Repertory Theatre and its upcoming season of productions, please call 971-832-9202 or visit www.valleyrep.org.

Background Info:

My name is Leif Fuller. I'm an award-winning actor and cinematographer starting production on my directorial debut, FEEDER. This film is years in the making and I am very excited to meet all of you and start production this summer. As a small-budgeted film, we aim to shoot on evenings and weekends in order to accommodate the cast and crew's regular working schedule. We're looking for a dedicated, hard-working cast member who will love this project as much as we do. If this sounds like something that would interest you, we'd love to hear from you. We are currently looking for a star. The character is Angela: an attractive, exotic, and mysterious woman. She speaks with utmost confidence and seduction, especially when food is involved. She seems sweet but she hides a dark past that manifests itself in the form of lies and angry outbursts.

Film Synopsis:

Andy Walsh's life seems to be going nowhere. He's under-appreciated, overweight, and generally disrespected. His only source of solace in found in an unhealthy food addiction. So it seems like a perfect match when he meets a mysterious and beautiful woman who not only likes to cook, but also loves to feed. But not everything is as it seems. Andy soon discovers secrets about her past as he descends into a world of murder, lies, and of course, plenty of food.

Actress, age 20 to 30, Thurs June 21st (oregon city)

I am finishing up a short and I need an actress for a scene to be added. It's of hands only, cleaning the sink specifically. I know it's not the most challenging, but it's a chance to meet an experienced director/producer and cinematographer. I"m one of a few female directors in town who has made a feature film. This is for a short film. If you do this for me, I will consider you for future casting. It will take no more than 2 hours (really only about 10 minutes to film, but I want to allow 2 hours in case the crew is late). 10 am to noon in Oregon City on this Thurs, June 21st. I would use my own hands, but I'm too old. Hands easily tell age. The actress must be white. The lead actress is caucasion (blond hair) so the hands must be light.
