Bag&Baggage hires actors on a show-by-show basis as needed throughout the season, and show-specific audition details are posted on this page when available. Actors are auditioned by invitation only; if you are interested in submitting for consideration, please upload your headshot and resume below.
B&B annually attends the PATA General and PATA Unified Shakespeare Auditions, and offers a limited number of AEA contracts throughout the season. We strive to reflect the diversity of our community and our audience on our stage, and encourage actors of all types, ages, ethnicities, gender identities, and actors with disabilities to audition.
PETER/WENDY Casting Notice
Bag&Baggage Productions, a professional theatre based in Hillsboro, is seeking adult actors to fill multiple roles in our May 2019 production of Jeremy Bloom’s Peter/Wendy, directed by Cassie Greer. Submissions from actors of color will be prioritized.
A LOST BOY/A MERMAID
THE TIGER LILY
We are seeking a diverse group of performers who have strong movement sensibilities for this lyrical and atmospheric interpretation of J.M. Barrie’s Peter Pan. Each role can be played by any gender, body type, ethnicity, age, and so on, and the performances should not be particularly child-like or exaggerated, but feature the personal qualities of the actors. These are ideals espoused by both Bag&Baggage and the playwright, and this show is not constrained by the context of its source material. We are unable to cast AEA actors at this time.
Peter/Wendy rehearsals begin on Monday, March 25th, and are held Sundays from 12:00-6:00pm, and Monday/Tuesday/Wednesdays from 6:00-10:00pm. The show previews Thursday, May 2nd and opens Friday, May 3rd; performances run Thursday/Friday/Saturday evenings and Sunday matinees through May 19th. Performances and rehearsals will take place at The Vault Theater in downtown Hillsboro – reliable transportation or willingness to travel on the MAX or public transportation is essential. (The Vault is located one block from the Hillsboro Central stop on the MAX Blue Line.)
Auditions are by invitation only on Saturday, Sunday, and Monday afternoons, January 19th, 20th, and 21st. Bag&Baggage is seeking a diverse cast of adult actors who have an interest in ensemble work and strong movement sensibilities. Interested artists are asked to submit the following for consideration:
1. A headshot (in jpg or pdf format – upload below)
2. A current resume (in pdf format – upload below)
3. In the Notes section below, please supply the names and contact info of two professional acting references (previous directors preferred), as well as availability on the audition dates (Saturday, Sunday, Monday afternoons, January 19th, 20th, 21st)
All roles are paid an hourly rate of minimum wage or higher, based on rehearsal calls and performances (approximately $1600). Bag&Baggage is committed to the State of Oregon’s focus on paying an hourly wage for work by performing artists, so performers are paid as employees with taxes taken out of all wages.
Deadline for submission of resumes is Monday, January 14th at 5:00pm; auditions will take place at The Vault Theater at 350 E. Main St. in downtown Hillsboro. Artists invited to audition will be assigned a time slot and provided sides.
B&B is committed to equity, diversity, and inclusion and to creating a safe place for actors of all backgrounds to explore their craft. We are particularly eager to work with artists of color.
