Auditions

Auditions 

The student-led production team of a new musical, WALLS, is looking for actors to participate in a final script reading on Jan. 28, 2019 in Morrison 128 from 7pm-9pm, as well as auditions on Feb. 2, 2019 in Hearst Gym. The team is looking for actors of all genders and backgrounds who can sing and dance. Besides looking for a diverse cast in general, they also are searching for two cast members that are specifically of Japanese-American and African-American backgrounds, for the historical characters of rebel artists Yasuo Kuniyoshi and Horace Pippin. Whilst these artists were male, they are open to gender-swapping the casting for these roles.

Dance audition with eMotion Arts / Feb. 3, 2019 — eMotion Arts is looking for professional dancers, all genders, with strong ballet technique. They have scheduled performance dates in April, June, July, August, October, November, and December with more dates to be announced. Performances include several well-known SF Dance Festivals, and performance spaces in SF and the South Bay. This season will consist of new works in collaboration with a visual artist, a musician, and a composer. eMotion is offering weekly company class and teaching opportunities in its educational program. The audition will consist of a ballet class and choreography from the company repertoire (contemporary movement with ballet influence). This audition is set up as part of ODC School Audition Series and has a drop-in fee of $15. They are asking dancers to bring a resume and headshot to the audition.

CREATE is an arts-in-service organization for Cal undergraduates. We are currently looking for dancers, theatre enthusiasts, creative writers and visual artists to teach in Berkeley public schools for the Spring 2019 semester! CREATE is a great way to connect with fellow artists and give back to the community. (Units available!) Professional artists of each respective field mentor CREATE teachers to strengthen understanding of their discipline and provide inspiration for challenge and exploration– as well as help student teachers add depth and structure to curriculum and project ideas. Our application can be found on the CREATE page of the Public Service Center website.

Berkeley Rep invites you to apply to The Ground Floor’s summer ambassador program! An ambassadorship at The Ground Floor offers highly motivated, responsible aspiring theatre-makers the opportunity to delve into the world of new play development at a major regional theatre. Volunteer ambassadors will be fully immersed in the daily operations of the Summer Residency Lab and will rotate between artistic and company management assignments. Ambassadors have many opportunities to  interact with Berkeley Rep staff and summer residency guest artists, including participating in meet and greets, Q&As and observing readings. Mentored by our artistic, management, and production staff, ambassadors will learn to facilitate a generative environment for artists developing new work. Applications due by Jan. 21, 2019.
