AUDITION: Theatre Vertigo Seeks Teen Male Actor

Theatre Vertigo is accepting headshots and resumes for the role of Andrew in our winter production of The Velvet Sky, directed by Jane Bement Geesman. We are looking for a male actor between the ages of 15 and 18 years of age who can convincingly play 13 years old, and who is comfortable working with adults. This actor must be mature, intelligent, confident, and ready to work on a challenging, dark, and sometimes scary play with a cast and crew that will look out for him every step of the way. 

Submission Guidelines: Material from minors must be submitted by a parent or legal guardian. Please send headshots and resumes to If you do not have a headshot and/or resume for your child, please send a recent photo and a written description of your child's onstage experience.

Rehearsal and Show Dates: The Velvet Sky goes into rehearsal at the beginning of January and rehearses Sunday through Thursday evenings from 7pm to 10pm. The show runs February 15th through March 16th, 2013, with 8pm performances on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday nights.

Pay: The project pays a $200 honorarium.

About the Play: The Velvet Sky is a dark, surreal story – along the lines of a scary folktale -- that blends fantasy and reality. Bethany Palmer hasn't slept in almost thirteen years; she is desperate to protect her son Andrew from the monster she calls The Sandman, and believes her nightly vigil will keep him safe. Only when Andrew turns 13 will he be safe, she believes, from this nighttime creature who preys on children. Bethany’s husband Warren, frustrated by his wife’s over-protective obsessiveness, runs off with their son in the middle of the night. Bethany is soon after them, but so is a menacing presence lurking in the shadows and behind closed doors. Chronicling Bethany's desperate search for her son through New York City, as well as the boy’s foray into the city’s darkest corners, The Velvet Sky is a dark fairytale for grown-ups, about the stories and lies adults tell children to keep them safe from the things that lurk in the dark. It is also a story about the love and connection between a mother and son who face head-on the darkest elements of their lives.

About the Role: Andrew is about to enter his teens and yearns to explore the world, even its darker aspects, on his own, away from the protective/probing eyes of his parents.  He heads off into the city, finding himself in a Port Authority restoom, an adult movie house, a dance club, and other unsavory, potentially dangerous locales. Andrew is exploring not only the world, but his own sexuality. He is pushing the limits of his curiosity as he encounters characters who would like nothing better than to take advantage of this young innocent. Despite getting himself into compromising, risky situations, Andrew is never touched, never harmed: The threat of danger is presented, and he gets away every time. By the play’s end, Andrew has retained much of his innocence, but, with his mother, faces a hard and surprising truth: that the greatest threat to his well-being is not in the dark recesses of the city or the mind, but right at home. It is his own father, not The Sandman, from whom he and his mother must flee.

About the Director: Jane Bement Geesman has been a professional actor, director, and teacher for almost three decades now, both here in Portland and in the Bay Area. She has often worked with young people, and is a parent herself. Jane appreciates the special skills of communication, patience, and encouragement required to work effectively with young actors.

Parental Involvement: Parents of the actor playing Andrew are welcome to attend rehearsals. We encourage a welcoming sense of openness, safety, and creativity.

Audition Details: Auditions for the role of Andrew will be held on an evening between September 4th and September 10th. Along with your child's headshot and resume, please send your availability for that time. Once we have received this information, we will send you the full script andaudition sides (scenes your child will read at the audition). Parents are more than welcome to read the full script before deciding whether or not their child will audition. Just ask!

Additional matinee performances at 3:00pm on Saturday, March 30 and Saturday April 6

Da Boyz:

Matthew: The leader of the group with looks and charisma to spare, a voice that could sell millions of albums and an ease with the audience that makes the girls and boys swoon. A pop tenor. Preferably able to beatbox. Ideally reads mid to late 20s.

Mark: The innocent "bowl of sunshine". He has always looked up to Matthew and is really, really glad that they are friends. Strong comedic instincts necessary. High Pop tenor. Ideally reads early 20s.

Luke: The "bad boy". Street-wise, but rather dim in every other area. He gives everything he does 110% – even when he only has 60% of the know-how. He speaks in hip-hop lingo from about 6 years ago. Strong comedic instincts necessary. Pop baritone. Ideally reads mid to late 20s.

Abraham: The Jewish Altar Boy. Abe loves singing and dancing and, while he is perplexed as to why God told him to join a Christian Boyband, he faithfully gives it his all while still fully retaining his faith. He loves these guys and is accepted by them 100%. Pop Baritone/Tenor. Ideally reads mid to late 20s.

The Altar Boyz are bringing their Raise the Praise tour to Portland in spring 2013! God put the rhythm in Matthew, Mark, Luke, Juan, and Abraham , and these heartthrobs want to praise the Lord with funk and rhyme! With lyrics like "Girl, you make me wanna wait" and "Jesus called me on my cell phone," this hilarious musical comedy will wash your soul clean with laughter.

Australian female for voice-over work (Portland)

Need simple audio script recorded by you in a relaxed Australian accent. Want authentic Australian accent only.

Scripts will likely be 1-2 min in length and this might turn into steady work if all goes well.

If interested send me an audio clip of your voice or contact me on skype at mikemunter1. I'm thinking $5 per clip to record it and send to me, as each one will be short and we will probably do 3 at a time which should take you no more than 30-45 minutes to record and send.


Compensation: $15 for 3 short audio clips of about 1-2 min each

I have a history of quick turn-around when it comes to editing; so, if you'd like to add to your professional reel without much delay, please do not hesitate to answer the call for an ACTRESS needed this Wednesday, from 2 PM to 5 PM.

An original, bilingual celebration of the Day of the Dead created by Martín Milagro

OCTOBER 18 to NOVEMBER 11, 2012

Every year, the dead are commemorated in Portland’s longest-running Día de los muertos celebration. This year, we unearth the interwoven roots of pre-Hispanic customs and traditions found at the juncture of life and death. Are we but dreaming and awake only when we die? Through music, dance and legend, we explore that thin veil that separates our world from the realm of our indigenous ancestors.


A riotous tragicomedy adapted from Fernando de Rojas’ classic Spanish Golden Age novel

FEBRUARY 7 to MARCH 2, 2013

Presented in Spanish with easy-to-follow supertitles in English

In this bigger-than-life comedy, Calisto is a young and impulsive nobleman who's fallen madly in love with Melibea, the daughter of a rich businessman. But to win her over, the lovesick Calisto resorts to the less-than-pure magic of La Celestina, a bawdy sorceress whose scheming touches off a string of events with startling consequences. Dressed in Golden Age finery, this seriously funny critique of human nature remains as potent today as when it launched Spain’s literary renaissance in 1499.


A new play in English by Caridad Svich

MARCH 21 to APRIL 13, 2013

Single-mom Roly lives in a dusty Texas border town that everyone longs to escape. She’s never seen anything like Guapa, a natural-born athlete with a fiery ambition to become an international soccer star.  When Guapa joins Roly’s family, everyone’s life is turned upside down.  With only one shot to reach the big leagues from the barrio, how can Guapa convince the non-believers to let go of their doubts, spread their wings and fly?  This inspiring story will have you cheering in the aisles!


World Premiere

An original dance theatre production created by Mariana Carreño King and Daniel Jáquez

MAY 2-25, 2013

New York City can be a lonely place. But there’s a little dance hall in Queens called Club Las Palmas, where a man can take the hand of a woman, embrace his culture and whirl away the cold.  In Las Palmas, the muchachas que bailan run the joint and serve up los hombres a little homestyle dignity. Check your worries at the door and feel your body come to life among the joyful sounds of duranguense, folklórico and cumbia!
