PATA invites you to audition at the 2023 Unified Shakespeare & Classical Auditions online.

Registration will be open from January 9th-27th. Once you register, you will receive a confirmation email containing a link to the online audition submission form.

This form will collect the links to you headshot, resume, and audition video, in addition to other information. Your responses will be shared with all registered auditors. You will also receive a list of auditors so you can see who you virtually auditioned for.

You must complete the audition submission form before the end of the day on January 27th, 2023 in order for your audition to be shared with auditors.

Eligibility Requirements: 

Individual-level membership (individual performer, student performer, theatre technician) in good standing with either PATA or Theatre Puget Sound at time of registration and on the original actors’ audition due date (January 27, 2023). 

There is no additional fee to participate in these auditions.

Unified Shakespeare & Classical Auditions are only open to candidates age 18 or older.

If you are a TPS member, please email info@portlandtheatre.com with proof of your membership to receive an audition form.

Audition Format:

Overall, your video must be less than 3 minutes total.

  • In the beginning portion, your introduction a.k.a. the "slate," please include your name and pronouns. For each piece, name the character and the show title. If the author is not William Shakespeare, name the author.
  • The performance portion after the slate must be 2 minutes or less total. 
    • Your 2 minutes start with the first word of your monologue after your introductory slate. 
    • At least one piece must be in verse, and we recommend that at least one piece be from a Shakespeare play. 
    • Transitions between pieces are considered part of your 2 minutes.

Do not use props, costumes, or instruments. 

You will not be able to upload a headshot and resume using the audition form, so you will need to provide a url where auditors may view those items.

Please see the auditions page (https://portlandtheatre.com/Auditions) and 2023 audition information packet (https://portlandtheatre.com/resources/Documents/InfoPacket2023.pdf) for full details on audition requirements and recommendations.
