Paines Plough Open Auditions
Monday 18 May 2015
Roundabout at Regency Square, Brighton, BN1 2GG
10am – 6pm
We’re really excited to be holding our second round of open auditions for this year in the Roundabout, in Brighton. Roundabout pitches up in Regency Square for the duration of Brighton Festival from 2 – 24 May 2015.
We are looking to meet actors previously unknown to Paines Plough and our next meeting will be held on Monday 18 May. We will see 60 actors (30 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 BRIGHTON 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 30 emails, we will email you back by Wednesday 6 May with an audition time.
– If you weren’t in the first 30 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.
