We want you to know your support is very important to us and much appreciated.

Even if you're too shy to be on stage, PLEASE consider joining one of our tech crews. We have such great fun staging productions so why not come be a part of it?!
Previous experience is not necessary, we can teach you! Keep in mind we are also looking for stagehands and costumers as well, a great way to break into theater if you're nervous about getting up on stage. For more info, please contact Leatha Gonzalez-Vos at 541-217-7405.
General Audition Guidelines:
Auditions are generally held 2 months prior to the Play's opening. Musicals and Shakespearean plays are the exception, as they have longer lead times due to the tremendous amount of material for the Actor to learn. Plan on auditions for those to run 3 to 4 months prior to opening weekend.
In any event, dress comfortably but appropriately for each audition, be punctual, and come prepared to read, dance, or sing (depending on the script).
Sometimes, would-be-actors are divided into groups and asked to read various parts from a script. In doing so, this simple excersize often aids in locating chemistry between actors, an important element in any play.
Other times, Monologues are required to help Directors gauge an actor's additional strengths & experience. These can range from poetry and song to excerpts from a script.
There are many good online sources available for getting audition Monologues; here are a few favorites:
The Monologue Archive
The Stage Agent
TheatreHistory.com Script Archives
The Internet Theatre Bookshop
At the Audition, you will be asked to fill out an official Audition Form listing contact info, special skills or experience, and other pertinent information to help the Director in choosing both a cast and a tech crew. You have the choice of either filling out a form at the actual Audition OR downloading one here in MS Word format and bringing it already prepared ahead of time.
In general, OBT seeks enthusiastic people who look and feel comfortable on stage, who listen well and follow directions easily, and for folks open-minded enough to try new & different roles than originally intended when auditioning. Some really terrific talent has been discovered this way.
In some instances, Musicians are needed for Musicals. If you are a musician interested in playing for one of our upcoming musicals, please contact us and let your talent be known, or else come attend an audition and talk to the Director directly!
As always, there's a need for Light Techs, Sound Operators, Stage Managers, Stagehands, Choreographers, Vocal Coaches, Costumers, Makeup Artists, Poster designers, Program cover artists, Set Construction, Graphic Artists, Concessions personnel, Directors & Assistants, and Producers.
If you have free time on your hands, or would like to break into theater this way, please give us a call or come to one of our open auditions and talk to the Director.
Experience is helpful BUT NOT mandatory. We can teach you! Come join the fun, make new friends!
