Audition Updates

We're getting a great response so far to our call for new people, but with so many roles to cast I thought I'd go into a bit more detail today about some of the types of people we're looking for, so if you or someone you know are interested in joining us this might provide you with the incentive you need to to jump on board. We're are pleased to offer up:

Kids' Auditions: We have a ten-play children's series coming up this summer, so for kids ages 8 to 12 the chances of landing a role are excellent. No experience necessary, just come on out and be ready to have some fun. For those who are interested we're also offering summer day camps in theatre this July and August at the Library as well - information about these camps will be available at the auditions. Lots of spaces still available.

General Auditions: These will be held in small groups throughout the afternoon and are open to anyone and everyone ages 13 and up. They will be relaxed, informal sessions where we'll get to know each other, maybe play a game or two and then read some selections from scripts from upcoming shows. Absolutely anyone and everyone are invited - no past experience or formal training in theatre is necessary. Spaces filling up quickly, but I'm sure we can squeeze you in!

Specialist Auditions: Do you sing? Dance? Play an instrument? Juggle? Do magic tricks? How about a Trained Dogs Act? We're holding individual auditions in the early evening for people who want to showcase their individual talents, whatever they may be. More seasoned actors, or those who are looking for the experience of a "professional" audition may deliver a monologue if they wish, and singers can present a song and dancers can do their audition routine. Good times still available.

After Hours Auditions: I haven't talked about these quite as much, because admittedly the After Hours series isn't for everyone - the content of these shows may require some "viewer discretion is advised" warnings, (the particular "sins" being dependent on the show) and I know that's not everyone's thing. But if you are interested in something a little edgier we're doing individual auditions for these after 9pm.

Please call 519-780-7593 or e-mail grinder@grinderproductions.org for more information or if you would like to book an audition time. We would love to have you on board with us!
