General Auditions are held each year in the fall for the upcoming season.

 
In addition, KCPT Artistic Staff attend the annual Theatre Puget Sound (TPS) General Auditions held in Seattle. For further information about TPS Auditions, please visit their website.

 

 

General Auditions for the 2014 season (were held November 2013)


Key City Public Theatre's General Auditions for the 2014 season will be held on Friday, November 8, 2013 beginning at 6:00 p.m. and on Saturday, November 9, 2013 beginning at 2:00 p.m.  All auditions are held at Key City Playhouse, 419 Washington St. in Port Townsend.


General Auditions are open to actors of all ages and experience levels.  Each season, a few roles are available to members of Actors' Equity Association (AEA) by virtue of a Special Appearance Agreement between the union and KCPT.

Come one, come all !    KCPT provides performance opportunities for all levels of experience.  This annual workshop is offered to ease you into the auditioning process.  If you are planning on attending General Auditions, if you’re new to the community or if you simply want to brush up on your auditioning skills, we recommend attending this workshop!

Auditioning can often prove the most challenging acting exercise, even for well seasoned actors.  This workshop will provide techniques that you can use in your rehearsal process as well as the audition room that will unleash your confidence and creativity.  In an audition, an actor needs to show that s/he is both, an artist and a showman, a creative spirit and a professional.  The activities taught in this workshop will help you to give your best audition ever.

About the Workshop:

 

All actors attending should bring a two-minute monologue that they can use in the workshop.  Perusal scripts of 2014 season plays are available -- at the KCPT uptown offices at 1128 Lawrence Street and at the Key City Playhouse Box Office.  Uptown office hours are 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Monday through Friday.  Box Office hours are 2:00p.m. to 6:00p.m. Wednesday through Saturday.


Following the workshop, actors may elect to sign up for additional fee-based monologue coaching.


To reserve your place at this FREE workshop, you can register by emailing rsvp@keycitypublictheatre.org.
