Paines Plough Open Auditions in collaboration with The Actors Centre
Thursday 13th November 2014
The Actors Centre, 1A Tower Street, London WC2H 9NP
10am – 5pm
We’re really excited to announce that we’ll be holding our next round of open auditions in collaboration with The Actors Centre, London.
We are looking to meet actors previously unknown to Paines Plough and our next meeting will be held on Thursday 13th November 2014 at The Actors Centre, London. Joint Artistic Directors George Perrin and James Grieve will be joined by a panel of directors and producers from Paines Plough’s core team and its Associate Companies all interested in meeting actors. The panel will see 180 actors (90 pairs), and these slots will be allocated on a first-come-first-served basis.
If you would like to be seen, please do the following:
– Find yourself a partner – we are auditioning people in pairs.
– Apply by sending ONE email with BOTH of your names to firstname.lastname@example.org.
– Please put OPEN AUDITIONS @ THE ACTORS CENTRE in the Subject line.
– Do not send CVs, biogs or headshots as you can bring these with you on the day.
– If you are within the first 90 emails, we will email you back by Monday 3rd November with an audition time.
– If you weren’t in the first 90 people to apply we will keep you on a waiting list and may offer you an audition if a slot becomes available.
– Once we have confirmed your time, please prepare a 3 minute piece of dialogue in your pair from a play written in the last 15 years.
– If you have auditioned at our previous Open Auditions, we will not be able to see you this time round.
– We do not accept applications from agents. If you have an agent, you must still apply yourself using your own email address.
– Places are all allocated in advance. You will not be able to request a different time, and we will be unable to see people on a walk-up basis.
– We will retain a waiting list and will notify you if you are on this waiting list.
– If you are allotted a time but for any reason cannot make the appointment please let us know ASAP by emailing email@example.com. If you fail to turn up to your allotted slot without letting us know in advance, you will not be able to audition at future Paines Plough Open Auditions.
– We will not accept any emails sent to any email address other than firstname.lastname@example.org.
– Due to the large volume of people we are seeing, we will not be able to offer feedback.
– We are not casting for a particular show at the moment – we just want to meet some new actors so that we can have you in mind for future productions.
George, James and all at Paines Plough
