Cleveland Public Theatre announces
Auditions for Entry Point
a part of CPT’s NEW New Play Development Series
Cleveland Public Theatre is looking to cast several pieces of theatre as part of our inaugural Entry Point festival. We are looking to cast a diverse group of actors of all ages and types interested in supporting the development of a new work.
Entry Point will be a weekend festival of raw art-in-progress—a platform for artists to develop new work that is in early stages of creation. Each project in Entry Point has unique needs and goals. Public presentations during the festival will range from staged readings to presenting short segments of a new work to open rehearsals of the creation process – all in different spaces throughout the CPT campus. For example, audience members may see a staged reading in one space, then see a segment of a devised work in another space, and then close out their evening by hanging out in a casual lounge to share their experiences with fellow audience members and artists.
When: Saturday, October 15th and Sunday, October 16th from 12pm-4pm
Where: CPT’s Campus (6415 Detroit Ave)
Auditions are by appointment only and will be scheduled in one hour increments. Actors will be given sides at the audition for cold readings. They should also come with one prepared contemporary monologue that they may be asked to perform. Actors may also be asked to sing a short a cappella song. Please bring 3 copies of your headshot and resume, if available. Actors should be prepared to stay for the entire hour.
Entry Point will need the following commitment:
1. Entry Point will take place from Thursday, January 12th through Sunday, January 15th.
2. Rehearsals prior to performance vary with each Entry Point project: some may require as many as 5 weeks of rehearsal and some may require as little as 9 hours. Be prepared to share your availability on your audition form at your scheduled audition.
AEA contracts will not be considered. Non AEA actors will receive a very small stipend.
Interested actors should schedule an appointment with New Play Associate, Caitlin Lewins by email only: firstname.lastname@example.org. When scheduling your audition, you must provide your preferred date/time and phone number. Please do not call. Appointments will only be made via email.
Entry Point artists include Raymond Bobgan, Faye Hargate, Meredith King, Lisa Langford, Carol Laursen, Jay Ruby, Jaclyn Vogel, Cassandra West and Carrie Williams.
