Auditions: Saturday, December 29, 2012

This post contains auditions posted on Saturday, December 29, 2012.

As you know, the available work is always limited this time of year as we hit our slow season in the PDX market.  That being said I will still update the blog as work comes along, at minimum once a week.

I am trying to build my views and fan base, so spread the word about the blog

I am glad that this blog is a helpful and reliable resource for those in the PDX community, and it is great to know people are booking work from using this blog.

Thanks for visiting and supporting this blog.

"Mousetrap" at Sandy Actor's Theatre auditions

Saturday, January 5, 2013

1 PM to 4 PM
Sandy Actors Theatre
14733 Meinig Ave. (behind Ace Hardware)
Sandy, OR 97055

The Mousetrap, by Agatha Christie
Performance dates: April 5 through April 28
Directed by Doug Holtry

At Monkswell Manor, the news on the radio reports a murder has recently taken place in London. Mollie and Giles Ralston, the young owners of the once-regal estate recently converted into a guesthouse, hardly notice the news. They are far too busy preparing for the arrival of their first guests and concerned the heavy snowfalls may prevent the guests reaching their destination. As the guests arrive safely and the Manor becomes snowed in, a policeman arrives on skis suspecting one of the seven occupants may be the killer. After a second murder occurs in the Manor, Sergeant Trotter is convinced.

Suspects include the young married couple, a spinster with a curious background, an architect who seems better equipped to be a chef, a retired army major, and an unexpected visitor who claims his car has run into a snowdrift. During his interrogation, Sergeant Trotter uncovers the many mysterious secrets of everyone present, as he tries to solve the murder in true Christie style.

All roles available

Actresses Wanted for short drama film (Portland)

I am currently a film student, doing independent film work in addition to school work as well, and am preparing to shoot a short film tentatively titled "Intersection", which follows a collection of female characters at different stages in their lives all approaching the same street intersection and whom are possibly on the verge of having a multi-car accident there. Each character has a legitimate reason for being distracted, which might make her responsible for an accident, and furthermore these characters are interconnected with one another. I am looking for actresses to fill in the roles of these various characters for which I have listed below. Each character has their own parts in the film, each of which will be approximately five minute segments.

ERIKA (20-30 years old) - a young woman working as a pizza delivery person who is caught up in the sluggishness of her life, which goes in conflict with her job which requires her to rush all around town making timely deliveries. As she reflects on her life, while in a rush, she is quite distracted.

NADINE (30-35 years old) - something of a "soccer mom" type character, who is very caught up in her busy life, which primarily focuses on her multiple children. Her greatest distraction is repeatedly having to check her cell phone, distracting her repeatedly.

GEENA (30-35 years old) - woman in a very unhappy and lifeless marriage of which she feels no happiness or spark from. Due to this she has to find her own ways to seek release in life. As she is out on a drive alone on a straightaway she tries to find some pleasure in speeding, which puts her in a dangerous place as she approaches the intersection.

ABBY & TORRY (both about 25 years old) - a young lesbian couple who have found themselves becoming listless together and are about to go out of town to try and spice up their rather young relationship. As they try and have a serious talk and connection they become distracted approaching the intersection.

CHELSEY (character is 16-17 years old, played by someone around 18-20 years of age) - a young driver on her way to a friends house after having a fight with her parents over the way she's been leading her young life. Distracted by inexperience and her exaggerated frustration at her parents.

LYNDSEY (20 years old) - An inexperienced driver without a license who borrows a friends car after another friend calls her with an emergency in which her help is needed. The simple fact that she is a poor driver, caught up in her friends recent emergency, makes her a liability out on the road.

LYDIA (20-25 years old) - has been in an abusive relationship for the past couple years and she has chosen this day to try and flee at all cost. She doesn't know until she's out on the road that her possessive boyfriend is aware of her efforts to try and get away.

The Van Raden Community Center (in Tualatin Park)

Melodrama was a mainstay of early American theatre, dominating the American stage from 1850 until the early 1900s. These are stories of virtue, with good conquering evil and always leading to a happy ending. The action is characterized by over-the-top emotions and exaggerated characters. Crowds love to boo the Villain, cheer the Hero and Heroine, and laugh at the Fool. All these stock characters and more have been transplanted to the deep swamps of Louisiana for the show at Mask & Mirror.

Characters (all roles are open for audition)
