An Invitation

The Audition Workshop Circle

Saturday, March 20th
2:00 - 5:30pm
Audition Location TBA (Greater Boston, Accessible by T)

Sought: Young actors of all types and experience levels.

Attention Young Theatre Artists: Do you want to strengthen the local scene and create new avenues for young actors, directors, playwrights, etc, to network? Join us for what we hope will be the first of many Audition Workshops, focused on the young and emerging Boston Theatre community and our collaborative nature. The workshops are free of charge.

On Saturday, March 20th, we will be conducting an Audition Circle Workshop. This is an avenue to debut new material, work on existing audition pieces, or just get some feedback on pieces you like. Each participant will be given three minutes, strictly enforced, to perform a monologue or two of their choosing. This will be followed by 8 minutes of peer observation and suggestions.

We will focus on constructive criticism, NOT direction, as we believe each artist must choose their own material and make it their own. After all participants have had their pieces worked, we will then all redo our monologues one by one so that we may self evaluate what discoveries we may have made. We believe that an audition monologue is best prepared with an audience and that our community should strive to collaborate at all levels for the purpose of artistic growth and networking as we prepare to mold the future of the Boston Theatre community.

We have space for 10 actors so you would like to be a part of this event, please e-mail us at colabtheatre@gmail.com with the subject "Audition Circle RSVP" ASAP. Include a headshot and resume and a sentence or two about yourself and why you are interested. Spots will be given on a first come first served basis and no audition is required. If there is space, you will be e-mailed back with further details. If not, you will be added to a wait list and given consideration for the next time we organize such an event. Please feel free to forward this information to all young actors and interested parties. If you have further questions or queries, please contact Kenny, Mary-Liz, and Erika at (colabtheatre@gmail.com).

The CoLab Theatre is committed to cultivating artists and the creative process. We are dedicated to meeting the needs of the actor through side-to-side networking, providing practical venues for risk taking and development, and strengthening artists’ ties to the local community by broadening exposure and access to the theatre. We strive to create an environment where actors are free to experiment collaboratively with other artists and new scripts.
We focus on the how not the what; the process, not the product.
