How to participate: For these auditions, no sign-ups are necessary. The first hour of every day will be ‘no-prep, come-as-you-are’ auditions. This hour will be low-stress, fun, and is the perfect way to try auditioning if this is your first time, or if it’s been a while.
Auditioners can participate in either or both the ‘No-prep’ and ‘Prep’ sections of the auditions. For the ‘No-Prep’, all that’s required is comfortable clothing and a willingness to play! For the ‘Prep’ section, please bring a monologue of no more than 1 minute in length. It’s not required to memorize the monologue, and additional monologues can be provided if you don’t have one prepared! You may be asked to read a scene or two from each play but scripts will be provided.

Lysistrata by Aristophanes, August 25-27, September 8-10, 22-24
Directed by Cleo DeOrio
Sick of endless war, Athenian wives organize a 'sex strike' to finally bring peace to Greece. Over 2000 years old, but still timely, relevant, and hilarious! Aristophenes' sultry and bawdy satire proves that sex and politics have always been in bed together!

Our Commitment to Conscious-casting: As theatre institutions, we hold ourselves accountable in the casting decisions we make. The actions of listening and compassionate understanding are at the heart of the practice.
These decisions reflect the power dynamics of the outside world and the society we live in. Just as theatre can hold a mirror up to nature, it also provides a lens for us to better see a path towards a more inclusive community.
Conscious-casting is the acknowledgment of a performer’s race, gender, and sexual identities, and the impact those identities have within a given role, on the stories we choose to tell and how we tell them.
Ferndale Rep, Northcoast Rep. and Redwood Curtain Theater commit to conscious casting, acknowledging and embracing identities to further equity, diversity, meaningful inclusion and accessibility in our space and stage. As such, we invite EVERYONE to audition for their desired roles, incorporating how each individual can uniquely add to the dynamics and world of the inclusive and diverse stories we strive to tell.
