 Mask & Mirror Traveling ThespiansWe will be holding general auditions for this new Troupe:

Thursday, November 8, 2012, from 7-9 pm
Saturday, November 10, 2012, from 1-3 pm

Auditions will be held at the Faith Journey Church,
11265 Southwest Gaarde Street, Tigard, OR 97224

Opening Gala Performances will be January 4, 5, 6, 2013

Who We Are:

Mask & Mirror Traveling Thespians (M&MTT) are a satellite troupe of performers from the Mask & Mirror Community Theatre: Actors, Singers, Dancers, Acrobats, Poets, Comedians, Playwrights, Directors, Musicians, Performance Artists of All Manner and Vision.

We have been given a grant from the Washington County Cultural Coalition / Oregon Cultural Trust to develop the M&MTT concept as a unique way of marketing Mask & Mirror Community Theatre. This grant will cover professional quality costumes and props, and pay required royalties.

Mask & Mirror Community Theatre is a 501(c)3 non-profit, all volunteer organization. All performers, crew, musicians and other support personnel are unpaid.

What We Do:

We go out into our Community (Tigard & Tualatin), using our talent to show people what M&M has to offer as a way to attract them back to our larger stage shows.

We will perform 1 or more free 30-40 min performances per month (12 are required before June 30, 2013, per our grant). The performances will each have an Emcee hosting the show (think Bob Hope doing the USO tours.) All shows will have a bit of a vaudeville feel to them.

Most of our shows consist of at least 3 'acts:' a song, an acting performance of some sort, and then "other," be it comedian, dancing . . . etc.

Each performance will have a theme. We will be starting in January/February with the theme of love.

Where We Perform:

We go to Senior Centers, Community Centers, Libraries, Hospitals . . . anyplace that wants us to perform for them in Tigard, Tualatin or adjacent communities. We go to entertain, but we simultaneously advertise Mask and Mirror. We do not charge for these performances, but we will put out a "Donation Jar" to support Mask & Mirror Community Theatre if allowed by the venue.

Audition details:

Each performer gets 2 minutes with the M&MTT Artistic Board to showcase their talent:
- If you are an actor and have a prepared monologue and want to do it, wonderful.
- If you want to do a monologue, but don't have one, that is ok too! We will have both a male and female monologue available to do as a cold reading as part of your 2 minutes.
- If you want to sing, bring a CD of music or sheet music and we will have a CD player and pianist available.
- If you want to dance, or show us a sample of your poetry, juggle, clown . . . whatever, it is up to you how you fill that time.
(If you have ever been to the PATA auditions, these will be similar to those auditions).

Please bring a resume and a head shot if you have them. If you don't, we will have a form that you can fill out when you arrive and someone to take your picture.

We will be casting an undetermined number of Troupe members. Troupe members should not expect to participate in every performance (casting will be based on theme, timing, and availability of talent) except the Opening Gala on Jan 4, 5 & 6 at the Tualatin Heritage Center, 8700 SW Sweek Drive, Tualatin 97062


If you would like to volunteer to help out with M&MTT, but not necessarily be a performer in the troupe (costumes, props, transportation, etc.), we invite you to come to the auditions on 11/8 and 11/10. We have some positions at the auditions that volunteers can fill, and we will also be able to discuss with you at the audition how you might be able to work with us in the future!

Thank you for your interest in the Mask & Mirror Traveling Thespians. We are very excited to be able to get this new venture up and running!

We hope you can join us!
