Opportunities for Actors

It seems you always find what you’re not looking for. While rummaging around the internet for new writing opportunities I have stumbled across a bundle of acting gigs. Rather than casting them aside, I though I might write up a little list for the actors out there.


The Knowledge By John Donnelly

You will receive sides for the character – you certainly don’t have to learn them, but familiarity with the script is desirable. Be open and prepared to improvise.

A View From Moving Windows is a new multi-playwright project headed by director Augusta Supple (Brand Spanking New, Stories from the 428, Write Here Write Now) which contains scenes, fragments and playlets by some of Australia’s best loved playwrights. Created specifically for Riverside Theatre’s True West Season, this is a unique portrait of Parramatta, like you’ve never seen it before.

The show is to be written and developed from late July through to August 2012.
