Auditions and Getting Involved
You don’t need to be a member of Circle X Theatre Co. to audition for our mainstage productions. When we hold open auditions, we post on Actors Access and Backstage, and often work with a local casting director. We aren’t able to keep resumes and headshots on file, as we cast on a per-show basis and are a small, mostly-volunteer organization. Readings and workshops are usually cast from actors we’ve worked with in the past. If you’re interested in working more closely with us, please see the sections below.
Joining the Staff
Joining staff is a good option if you want to be heavily involved with Circle X and participate in things like the Writers Group, artistic decision-making, and lots of late-night riser-moving sessions. Circle X is managed by a mostly-volunteer staff comprised of actors, arts managers, stage managers, and designers. The staff makes artistic decisions and sits in on Writers Groups, workshops, etc.
We are currently seeking additional staff members with experience in Theatrical Marketing, Technical Direction, Producing and General Management. The time commitment is 8-20 hours/week. Yes, that’s volunteer. Please send your resume to firstname.lastname@example.org. If you haven’t seen our work, we’ll tell you that is the first step; we want to be sure you like what we do before you get involved!
To get involved with Circle X, please come see our work and introduce yourself to the staff– there are a few of us at every performance, reading or other event. We post up-to-date information via Facebook (click to visit) and here on our website.
You can also email our Managing Director, Camille, at email@example.com for more information about getting involved. The first thing she’ll say: come and see our work so you can make sure you like what we’re up to! Then we can talk about where you might fit into our company. We are always looking for theatre artists interested in our mission. If we have nothing coming up, please hold off until we announce another production or reading. We’ll do that via our email list (sign up on the homepage) or Facebook.
Circle X keeps an Associate Membership list of people who are interested in working with us in a non-acting capacity instead of or in addition to auditioning. If you’re interested in going on our Associate Member list, please email Camille at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please don’t include any materials (headshot, etc.).
