What we are looking for is versatility. Look round the theatre site, especially at the previous Valentines Competition. The winning play was performed twice in every venue – by different actors! (Oxford, London, Poland) Many of the plays were filmed (all 19 of the London plays were) which is ideal for showreels etc.
So what we are looking for is actors that are prepared to adopt different persona, able and willing to improvise (probably for the 5 minute plays) and, most importantly are RELIABLE.
Auditions will be on the 13th March in Oxford. Rehearsals will be 20, 27 March; 3,10, 17, 24 April; 8, 15, 22, 29 May and 5 June. (Sundays)
There will be numerous opportunities to act in a variety of different plays – these Vegan Plays but also others we are advertising.
Performances are likely to be in May/June (Oxford) and June (London).
NO EXPENSES will be paid.
NO PAY FOR PERFORMANCE
BUT there will be PROFIT SHARING. (The theatre gives all its share of profits to charity)
What will actors get out of this?
Please spend ages looking through the website and see what ART has been doing these past 2 years – performing abroad (unpaid) Business Theatre (paid) Schools (expenses only) appearing on national TV, local newspapers, helping others but perhaps most importantly, perfoming, performing, performing.
Shamin Ava is about a guilt-wracked woman who checks herself in to a public shaming center to confess a wicked act, but her attempt is thwarted by an unexpected loophole in the honour system.
