How VFR Auditions
Our casting process happens in two phases.
A formal audition. It’s from these initial auditions that we build a database of talent. If your Phase One audition kicks ass but we can’t use you for the current show, we’ll keep your headshot and resume, and when a project around that we want to see you for, we’ll give you a call.
Here's what you'll need
A day-long workshop with the selected cast. We’ll start in the morning, usually in a park or open outdoor area, with some warm ups and text exercises involving breath, voice, and potentially Frisbees. After a lunch break we’ll return to a formal-ish audition format, in which we’ll play around with some text and see what happens. Then we’ll get dinner and beverages and start reading the plays.
We’re excited about this approach because it lends itself to exploration and new discoveries – for both actors and directors. Voices Found is a team, and we believe it’s important to establish that on day one.
And if you’re alarmed by the aforementioned Frisbees, don’t worry. We’re not very good, either.
This bit’s important: you must be able to come to the workshop if you want to be cast. We’ll ask you about it during the Phase One auditions, and if we cast you we expect you to follow through. You’ll get plenty of notice beforehand to add it to your calendars and adjust your schedules if needed.
