Auditions for Charlotte’s Web 

We are looking to cast actors ages 8 to ADULT for the roles in our production of Charlotte’s Web.  Please note that this production of Charlotte’s Web is NOT a musical, it is a play.

 

Audition Dates: Friday, January 21 at 5pm, Saturday, January 22 at 1pm, Sunday, January 23 at 3pm.

 

Actors only need to attend one audition day; whatever works best with their schedule.  Auditions are Open Call, meaning that they are first come, first audition.  You DO NOT need to reserve an audition time slot.  Actors will be auditioned in groups of 4 or 5.  Auditions will consist of a cold read, meaning that portions of the script will be made available the day of auditions for actors to look over and audition with in the rehearsal room.  Actor resumes are appreciated but NOT required.

 

VIDEO SUBMISSIONS: 

If you would like to submit a video audition, we are offering that option for actors who may not be able to attend in person auditions for whatever reason.

Video auditions need to be emailed to echarny@artsofsky.org no later than Saturday, January 22 at 5pm.

Audition sides for video auditions will be available here on December, 21st.

Please send in your audition via a link (Google Drive, YouTube, Vimeo, etc.) NOT as an attachment.   Introduce yourself and which side you will be using.  If the side has more than one character in it, please have someone off camera read for the other roles.

 

 

If you have any questions, please email Elise at echarny@artsofsky.org.
