If you choose to sing, you may do so acapella, with an instrumental track, or accompany yourself on an instrument. An accompanist can also be provided if you have sheet music, so please let us know if you would like to make use of this. Please bring a physical copy of your headshot and resume with you to your audition. Callbacks will take place at various points throughout the summer (April 2024 – September 2024). Please let us know if you have any questions, concerns, or if there are any accommodations we can provide.

Portland Playhouse does not discriminate against any employee, volunteer or customer on the basis or race, color, cultural heritage, national origin, religion, age, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, size, mental or physical dis/ability or appearance, genetic status, marital status, political affiliation, source of income, veteran status or any other status protected under local, state, or federal law.

A note about casting (adopted from language with consent originally created by Kevin Kantor and Emily Traquin of Actors Theatre of Louisville):

Most characters we encounter currently are on the binary and are written with he/him or she/her pronouns and you will see that in the following character descriptions. However limiting the descriptions are, our casting seeks to be inclusive as possible and we invite gender non-conforming, genderqueer, transgender, and non-binary actors to submit for the roles they most identify with. We will also list race/ethnicity when specific to the character but are otherwise seeking all races and ethnicities. Please let us know if you have any questions, concerns, or if there are any accommodations we can provide.

Please note; because of the ever changing landscape due to COVID-19, our season is subject to possible alteration. This production may be filmed and/or recorded under Actors’ Equity Association guidelines, and Actors’ will be given at least 24 hours notice per AEA requirement.
