Who We Are
Where We Perform
We invite actors to attend open auditions for all of our regular shows. To receive reminders of upcoming auditions, click here to be added to our audition mailing list.
We request that actors download and fill out our audition form to bring to the audition. This will include a listing of all your conflicts from the start of rehearsals through closing night, including weekends. Resumés are appreciated. Headshots are not required.
Unless otherwise specified, American accents are used for all shows.
NOTE: Due to construction at the Dairy Center for the Arts (our usual venue) Taming of the Shrew and Our Town will be performed at the Nomad's Playhouse in North Boulder.
All auditions will be held at 7:30pm at The Upstart Crow Studio. Actors are requested to bring a resumé and prepare a one-minute reading from a similar play (it need not be memorized). Shows are cast the night of auditions. If you have any questions, please contact the director or firstname.lastname@example.org or call (303)442-1415.
Rehearsals are Monday-Friday, 7:30-10:00pm at the Upstart Crow Studio (at the theater starting the Monday before opening).
All actors in Upstart Crow productions receive a small stipend. Not enough to pay your rent, but it might help with your transportation.
The Upstart Crow Theatre Company is an actors' company and actors are expected to help with tech work - set and/or costume construction weekend afternoons during the rehearsal period. All actors are expected to help with move-in on the Sunday before opening and strike on closing night.
Like all theatre companies, we have a commitment to our ensemble members. Still, we always cast actors from outside our company. Act with us often enough and you'll gain the benefits of membership.
