Upcoming Auditions

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.

  • Juno and the Paycock, directed by Joan Kuder Bell, (303)442-1415, bells@theupstartcrow.org; Tuesday, September 23, 2014; rehearsals begin Monday, October 6, 2014.

    We are looking for actors who can play these ages:

    • Johnny Boyle: 20s and has lost one arm in the civil war and has PTSD
    • Mary Boyle: 20s well made and good looking girl. Two forces are working in her mind: one, through the circumstances of her life, pulling her back—the other, through the books she has read, pushing her forward.
    • Mrs. Boyle (Juno): mid 40s but looks older. Worn down by life—but still has a little fight left in her.
    • Captain Boyle: in his 60s and of the tenements—adverse to work.
    • Joxer: 50s though looks older than his years. A parasite and adverse to work.
    • Charles Bentham and Jerry Devine: suitors to Mary Boyle.
    • Mrs. Madigan and Mrs. Tancred: tenement dwellers
    • Several other tenement dwellers that will be doubled.

    Irish accents will be used for all roles.

    A synopsis is available at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Juno_and_the_Paycock. Text of the play is available at Juno and the Paycock script.

  • Twelfth Night, directed by Joan Kuder Bell, (303)442-1415, bells@theupstartcrow.org; Tuesday, December 9, 2013; rehearsals begin Monday, January 5, 2015. Actors are requested to prepare a one minute reading from Shakespeare.

    A synopsis is available at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Twelfth_Night. Text of the play is available at Twefth Night script.

  • The Flies, directed by Jim Valone, jvalone@theupstartcrow.org; Late March, 2015. Please check back later.

    A synopsis is available at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Flies. Text of the play is available at The Flies script.

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 info@theupstartcrow.org or call (303)442-1415.

Rehearsals are Monday-Friday, 7:30-10:00pm at the Upstart Crow Studio (at the theater starting a week before opening).

All actors in Upstart Crow productions receive a small stipend. Not enough to pay your rent, but it might cover 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.
