Auditions

inD Theatre values diversity in all areas of its operations. We are dedicated to nurturing talent and hiring locally, and welcome and encourage auditions from non-Equity actors of all ethnic and cultural groups. We have roles available for all gender-expressions as well as gender non-conformed actors.

"There Is a Happiness That Morning Is" by Mickle Maher

inD Theatre is now casting for its December 2022 production of "There Is a Happiness That Morning Is", written by Mickle Maher and directed by Erin Murray.  All rehearsals and performances will take place on Bainbridge Island. Actors will receive a stipend of $900-$1200.

We are committed to an open and inclusive casting process. The right person for the role will express the essence of their character, and will not necessarily conform to an expected race, gender, ethnicity, physical abilities, or body type. Actors of color, gender non-conforming actors, and deaf or disabled actors are encouraged to request auditions. 

COVID-19 SAFETY
All actors invited to audition must bring and show proof of FDA authorized, complete Covid-19 vaccination received no less than 2 weeks prior to the audition. In addition, for the safety of everyone involved in the audition process, all production team members, actors and anyone else on site will be required to wear masks at all times except for actors during their audition.

AUDITION DETAILS
A first round of auditions will be held from 6:00-9:00 pm on Monday, September 12 at Rolling Bay Hall on Bainbridge Island and on Tuesday, September 13 from 6:00-9:00 pm at Theatre Puget Sound in Seattle. Actors will be pre-assigned to a time slot of approximately 45 minutes in duration.

 

Actors should prepare a monologue IN VERSE of up to two minutes in length. If you have questions about the suitability of a monologue selection, please address them to the contact email at the bottom of this document.

 

Once you are confirmed for an audition slot, you will be sent sides for use during the audition. Actors should expect to read with other auditioning actors during this process. Please bring your sides with you.
