Paines Plough Open Auditions
Thursday 25 September 2014
Roundabout @ Hackney Downs Studios, 17 Amhurst Terrace, London E8 2BT
10am – 6pm
We’re really excited to be holding our next round of open auditions in the Roundabout Auditorium, in London. The Roundabout will be at Hackney Downs Studios from 22 – 27 September as part of its inaugural tour this autumn.
We are looking to meet actors previously unknown to Paines Plough and our next meeting will be held on Thursday 25 September 2014 in London. We will see 50 actors (25 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 @ ROUNDABOUT HACKNEY 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 25 emails, we will email you back by Monday 15 September with an audition time.
- If you weren’t in the first 25 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.

We are also offering an ACTING IN THE ROUND workshop for actors, on Wednesday 24 September, 3-5pm which is free to anyone who has a ticket to one of our shows over that week. Places are limited and will be offered on a first come first served basis.
