MORE DATES: Open Call Auditions . . .

Portal Players Dramatic Society invites anyone who would like to try acting in either one or both One-Act Plays to be performed at The Capitol Theatre in November, to come to our auditions on August 26 & 27 at 6:00 pm.

“Take Five” directed by Dale Hillman, is a 45 minute One Act Play for six adults, four Men and two Women.  The play is a hilarious comedy about what can go wrong in live theatre.

The cast includes:

  • Mike – a stagehand with acting aspirations
  • Lester – a not too bright assistant stagehand
  • Greg – a person in the audience
  • Alex Cane – husband of Sharon
  • Sharon Cane – very pregnant wife of Alex
  • Gladys – Sharon’s sister

“This Is A Play” directed by Nicole Saugstad is a hilarious comedy which follows three actors who, while performing, reveal their own thoughts and motivations as they struggle through crazy stage directions and an unoriginal musical score.

Parts needed:

  • Male Actor – Thinks he’s all that. A little clueless.
  • Female Actor – Thinks she is the “It” girl. Has a rivalry with the Older Female Actor.
  • Older Female Actor – seasoned, was probably the “It” girl in her hay-day.
  • Composer – no gender, thinks they are the best thing since sliced bread.

Auditioners must be ages 15 and up. Play features some adult situations/humour so anyone under 18 must have parental consent.

The Composer part may or may not be voice over. Please mark a preference on audition page.

Please come prepared with a 2-3 min comedic monologue. (Memorized or read from the page)
