Key City Public Theatre auditions open for 2020 season

PORT TOWNSEND — General auditions for Key City Public Theatre’s 2020 season are set for Monday, Nov. 4, at the Key City Playhouse.

Auditions will be at the playhouse at 419 Washington St.

Those who participate in general auditions are eligible for any of next year’s productions. Each show has one to three roles available to members of the Actors’ Equity Association’s small professional theater tier 1.

To arrange an audition appointment Nov. 4, email production manager Christa Holbrook at [email protected] and specify a preferred time slot between noon and 4 p.m. or between 5 p.m. and 9 p.m.

Actors should bring a headshot and resume and prepare a five-minute audition with two contrasting monologues or one monologue and a song. Musical accompaniment isn’t available.

Performers from out of town may submit video auditions any time, Holbrook said. Videos should be emailed to her at [email protected].
