Seeking Actors for Fun Murder Mystery Theater (The Reserve Restaurant and Others)

Thanks for all the interest! I had some trouble with email getting through so am listing this again. We have a bunch of shows coming up so would definitely love to hear from you. (FYI, here's a listing of upcoming shows at The Reserve, we also have other gigs coming up including birthday parties, etc. and there will be more shows added to this list soon: )

Our current theme is called Crime and Pun-ishment and has a 20's mobster theme, with plenty of campy silliness thrown in. We are auditioning for a Femme Fatal (ideally someone who can either sing magnificently or be funny trying), a Mob Sub-Boss, and a Detective (gotta have a mind for lots of layers of information and rules). You've gotta be confident, fun, hard working, and really love people. This is a lot like a giant, interactive game of Clue.

Please respond through link above and I'll send the detailed info, including pay, what specifically is involved, what we're looking for, etc. Please read all that carefully and then let me know if you are interested and/or have further questions. Resumes (need not be formal, but should include the relevant experience and education) and headshots are appreciated. Next is a phone interview and then auditions following.

 Seeking two teen/early 20s males for March PCTG reading

Hello, all.  I'm directing Lost in Yonkers for the Portland Civic Theatre Guild's reading series on March 5th from 10-12.  I'm looking to cast the parts of Jay (16-ish) and Arty (13-14-ish).  Actors don't necessarily need to be the ages of the characters, but do need to be able to play those ages.  The reading focuses on the text, so looking the part isn't as important as speaking it.  Strong cast, good learning material for young actors interested in growing through association/observation.  :)

This is a paid position.  2-3 rehearsals will be needed.

2 actors needed for March performance

I am directing a re-enactment of the Last Supper of Jesus for MARCH 28TH, 7pm. 

PLEASE EMAIL if you are interested in auditioning for this paid acting assignment. 

I am looking to cast the roles of Judas and Jesus.  Judas would be the "under-study" for Jesus.

Both positions would be paid. (amount tbd)   Both would need to be in late twenties to mid-30's (or look as if), and be available for 4-5 rehearsals.

The location of the rehearsals will be at Bethany Presbyterian Church in NW Portland, just 1 mile from Rockcreek PCC. 

A few rehearsals will be on Sunday afternoon, the others tba, according to actors' availability. 

Costume fitting and DRESS REHEARSAL will be Sunday, March 24, at 11:30. 

PERFORMANCE to be on THURSDAY, MARCH 28, 7PM.   Arrive at 5:30 for costume, make-up, and run-through. 

The re-enactment will last 30 minutes or so.  Disciples and Jesus will be sitting at a head table eating a Passover-style meal, while the audience is seated at tables, also eating a Passover-style meal, as they watch the performance unfold.

The person playing Jesus will have some of the "lines" taped to the table to aid in delivery.  Judas has very little to say, but will under-study the role of Jesus.

Thank you!  Merica Fooks

Seeking five creative, open, collaborative actors. An ensemble working together to help create the world of this play which shifts from real to surreal at the flick of a switch. Although the piece deals with some serious themes and requires emotional depth we are looking for actors with a light, simple, and straightforward approach. These characters are very human...except when they're fish.

Lucy- (female 20's) intelligent, curious, guarded. A science student attempting to reach an understanding of her mother's illness and cure through several experiments involving electricity. Begins with good intentions but quickly becomes obsessed and consumed by her work. Actor will also play eight year old Lucy in flashback scenes.

Clare- (female 20's) Lucy's roommate and friend. Funny, caring, uninhibited. Often speaks without a filter. Non-union only.

Mark- (male 20's) Lucy's boyfriend- earnest, loving, sensitive, quirky. Much more right brained than left. A patient man but not without limits. Non-union only

Louise (35-early 50's)- Lucy's mother. Struggles with everyday life and mental illness. Throughout the play she is at once sexual, confused, forgetful, courageous, and wise. Considering both union and non-union.

One versatile actor to play multiple roles including:
Conrad (male 35-early 50's) Lucy's father. Kind, caring, understanding, proud parent. We also see him in flashbacks struggling to balance both parenthood and his wife's illness.
Allesandro (male 40's-early 50's)  17th-century Italian. Sexual, mysterious, mischievous.
Eugene (male, old, 70's+) From the old country. A widower who misses his wife and longs to reunite with her. Brave, fearless, insightful. Ready to go!

Considering both union and non-union

Casting Call for Senior Film (NW Portland)"Fresh Pact," a senior film being produced by students at the Art Institute of Portland, will be holding a casting call this Saturday!


Frank Bower has known since he was a child that he will kill a man tonight. Balam told him this, and if Frank has learned one thing in his life, it is that Balam is never wrong. Now the fatal night is here, and all Frank can do is let Fate run its course.


Balam (Supporting)

A being older than time, Balam knows perfectly what was, is, and will be. She was tasked long ago with following certain men and women, both mighty and meager, to ensure events in their lives play out appropriately. Nothing surprises or upsets her, because she has long since calculated and analyzed every interaction and event she will take part in. Though largely detached and indifferent, she will at times affect sympathy because, in those moments, it is what she is supposed to do.

Character Traits:

- Female
- Early to mid 20's
- Slight build
- Dark complexion
- Wears a nice suit

Frank Bower (Lead)

Frank is Balam's current subject. Balam entered his life when he was six, with a detailed list of the significant events in his life. Every one of them has come true, despite his attempts to avert the more tragic moments. The story picks up on the night of a particularly dreaded event: the night he kills a man. He knows that Balam has never been wrong, and that she won't be wrong about this, but a part of him still hopes that this, at least, can be prevented.

Character Traits:

- Male
- Early 30's, approximately
- Medium build
- Rumpled and resigned

Thief (Supporting)

A random man who has fallen on hard times and resorted to theft to get by, and unfortunately is scheduled to die at Frank's hand. He breaks into Frank's home, thinking it is empty, and panics after being discovered, leading to his demise.

Character Traits:

- Male
- Medium build


Where: The Art Institute of Portland (1122 NW Davis St, Portland, OR 97209), Rm. 310
When: Saturday, February 23rd, 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Each audition will be allotted a block of fifteen minutes. When replying to this call, please list a time frame that will work best for your audition. If there is space available during that time, we will schedule you appropriately and confirm the time with you. Walk-ins are welcome, but please understand that scheduled auditions take precedence.

Please bring a copy of your headshot and resume along to the audition, along with whatever other materials you deem necessary. Sides will be provided for you to read from, but feel free to prepare a monologue of your choosing as well.
