Open Auditions


Red Octopus Theatre Company's auditions are open to the public, and appointments are not necessary. Please arrive on time and let the attendant know if you will need to leave early. Callbacks are by invitation only.

Red Octopus Theatre Company is committed to inclusivity and does not discriminate with regard to gender, race, age, size, or ability. Most characters we encounter currently are on the binary and are written with he/him or she/her pronouns, and you will see that in the descriptions we provide. But however limiting the descriptions are, our casting seeks to be as inclusive as possible and we invite gender non-conforming, genderqueer, transgender, and non-binary actors to submit for the roles they most identify with. We will also list race/ethnicity when specific to the character, but are otherwise seeking all races and ethnicities. Please let us know if you have any questions, concerns.

Never miss another audition...

All are welcome at our auditions

We encourage any/all in the community who may be interested in theatre to join us for auditions, as we love to see new talent and welcome new folks to our stages. Our auditions are open to all, because we want to see our coastal theatre community grow!




The Christmas Show

Written and directed by
Darcy Hogan Lawrence

Sunday, September 8th
5:30pm - 7:30pm

Newport Performing Arts Center

Seeking all ages, types. Please arrive at 5:30.

**NOTE: Light rehearsal schedule. **

"Green beans?!?" This is a sketch-comedy style show, so depending on how many sketches you're in, your rehearsal load could be very, very minimal. Everyone must be at tech week and performances, but other conflicts can likely be worked around. (You'll have an opportunity to indicate how light or heavy of a rehearsal schedule you can take on, and we'll factor that in.) Looking for all types of folks -- everyone's welcome! Great comedic timing a plus. Sides will be provided. Come have fun!

From the director who brought you A Midsummer Night's Dream, The Fully Monty, Taming of the Shrew, Lend Me a Tenor, and It's a Wonderful Carol, Actually.
