For auditions be prepared for readings that show contrasting characteristics, improv, and cold readings from the script. You may prepare a 2 min monologue of contrasting characteristics, emotions, and personalities, but it is not required. This will be somewhat of a physical and emotional show. If you would like to review the script before the audition, please contact Theatre West or the director at [email protected]
Auditions are typically held on Sundays and Mondays. Dates will be announced on the local radio station, KBCH 1400 AM, in local newspapers, on Facebook via the Theatre West of Lincoln City page, and on this website at least one month before audition dates.
Auditions are held several weeks before each new play at Theatre West. The call goes out for local actors/wanna be actors to audition for the roles and beginners are most welcome to audition. Everyone has an equal chance to be chosen for a part since directors at Theatre West do not pre-select their cast. You might read for one part, but the director wants you in an entirely different role. Surprise, the director saw something special! The point is that we encourage the public to come and participate. Even if you are unfamiliar with the play or not necessarily interested in actually getting a role, it can be a lot of fun.
We don’t pre judge anyone. If we laugh it will be because you read the funny line really well. Don’t want a stage role but think it would be fun to be a prop person, run lights and sound, be in charge of costuming, ushering, or helping out in the box office? Great, there are many parts to putting a play on stage and only a few are the actors. Auditioning can be fun and you are sure to meet friends, and who knows you may discover that you really want to be a part of the “Live” Theater experience.
