Lionheart Maskerade Ball
The Lionheart Theatre Company is holding open auditions for our “Halloween Maskerade Ball.” The show dates are Friday, October 30th and Saturday, October 31st, 2020 at 7:30 pm ET. This is a non-equity, non paid opportunity.
Please note that this is a live performance opportunity, featuring a live cast and designed for a smaller audience (25 max), while adhering to our social distancing and safety guidelines in light of the COVID-19 pandemic. 5 short plays will be performed as part of this production.
We are looking for male and female actors, ages 20-60. We are also looking for one female actor who can convincingly portray a 16-year old girl.
To ensure actor safety, auditions will be limited to 10-minutes per actor. If you’re interested in auditioning, please sign up for a time slot below. Please bring one copy of a photo of yourself that we may keep. Be prepared to fill out a brief audition form on your arrival, listing your conflicts from September 28th through October 31st.
Audition Protocol – COVID-19:
Upon arrival to Lionheart for your audition, please enter the front door of the theatre wearing a mask. Once you take the stage to audition, you can remove your mask. Once your audition is complete, we ask that you put your mask back on and exit out the back door of our theatre.
Auditions will consist of cold reading and monologues from the 5 scripts featured in our show. Sides will not be provided in advance.
If you’ve been interested in diving into the acting world, then our auditions in Norcross are the perfect opportunity for you! At Lionheart Theatre, we put on a new production almost every month, and each month is different. You’ll have the chance to try your hand at a number of varying roles.
Lionheart Theatre Company is always looking for new faces to join our continuously growing acting family. Your level of experience doesn’t matter as long as you’re willing to learn and have fun. The right attitude can bring out the best in actors, experienced or not. We welcome people of all ages, backgrounds, and beliefs to audition.
The best way to prepare for auditions is to know your character. Yes, memorizing lines is important, but understanding who you are portraying is what turns a good actor into something great. Take the time to sit down and research your character. What’s their background? What motivates them? How do they change throughout the play? As you learn more, try to apply this knowledge to your lines.
You can also work on your lines with a friend or family member. Don’t just read the lines aloud; try to make them come to life. Exaggerate your emotions, and keep your facial expressions in mind. If you can find a way to connect with the character, don’t be afraid to let it show! All of these efforts will translate well into your audition.
Lastly, be sure to work on your confidence. Every actor starts somewhere, so even if you have no experience at all, walk into your audition with your head held high. Chances are, doing so will help you shake some of those audition nerves.
