Auditions for Action/Adventure's Brand New Original Comedy, July 28th & 29th

Action/Adventure Theatre is developing an all new improvised serial comedy and we’re looking for cast members to come join an innovative and exciting process.

The show will be modeled after our successful serial shows Fall of the House and Captured By Aliens, in which the ongoing plot of the show runs for 4 weekends with a new “episode” premiering every weekend. The plot will be mapped out in advance but the dialogue is completely improvised by the actors, making for a new and invigorating night of theater with every go around.

The basic premise we’re working with right now is focused on a band that lives together in Portland Oregon, and all the comedy and drama that inevitably comes out of those close living and working quarters.

What we’re looking for:

-Actors/Performers who are interested in developing a strong ensemble and collaborating on story and character development largely through improvisation and devised theater practices.

-Actors with strong improvisational skills/experience are strongly encouraged to audition. Not necessarily comedy improv skills as the show is very character driven, but actors who are good on their feet and can make strong choices.

-Actors who play instruments or are skilled musically are strongly encouraged to audition, especially those who have played in bands and are interested in writing brand new music for the show.

Audition Info:

Auditions will be held on

Sat July 28th, and Sun July 29th 

11am-7pm both days (time slots will be assigned)

Callbacks are tentatively set for the evenings of July 30th and 31st.

Auditions will mainly consist of group improvisational exercises/games. Actors who can also play music are encouraged to bring instruments and have a song they can play a minute or two of. Actors who don’t play music are encouraged to prepare a 1-3 minute monologue (not required).

Rehearsals will begin September 16th (subject to change)

And the show will run Oct 26th-Nov 18th (Fri-Sun 9pm) at Action/Adventure Theater! Payment is based on the size of the role in the show, but is, in any event, not very much (tis a labor of love).

Questions or inquires? Feel free to email director Noah Dunham (

Thanks so much for your time!

Looking for an Actress

I am putting together a short satirical news-based program as one of many projects I am putting together towards my digital media/communications degree this summer. The premise is about a young woman, Hayley, who has fallen madly in love with her car. The piece is filled with comedic bits while making parody of various serious news programs such as "Frontline". The character of Hayley is approximately 20-25 years of age and is very upbeat but obviously very flighty. I am looking to fill and shoot this piece as expediently as possible as I have various other projects to work on as well. Anyone interested would need their own vehicle.
