“A general audition is the opportunity here at BCP that allows actors to showcase their talents for people with casting authority. Instead of reading from a script or learning a song for a specific show actors are able to highlight what they do best. Each show will still have their own auditions later in the year so if actors cannot attend generals they still will have an opportunity to be cast. We want actors to be able to really shine and show us their best work and generals are a great chance to do that. ”
Actors are asked to memorize and prepare two contrasting monologues such as; a comedy and a drama or classical and contemporary pieces. They can choose to perform 32 bars of a song in place of one of the monologues and BCP will provide an accompanist. The total time for each audition is five minutes and participants must call BCP at 409-833-4664 to schedule a time in advance.
“Last year all the slots were filled pretty quickly.” John Manfredi, Executive Director continued. “These auditions not only let actors be seen by other organizations but help our directors see actors in a different light than simply reading for a play. As the leader in the performing arts community here in Southeast Texas we feel an obligation to broaden the talent pool and create more opportunities for everyone.”
In addition to casting for its upcoming season, BCP is seeking actors for its SE Texas Festival of New Plays which takes place August 12 through the 18th . All actors aged 13 or older are encouraged to attend.
