Third Rail is an ensemble-based company. As such, Third Rail chooses
scripts with an eye toward casting ensemble members, and ensemble
members are given priority when casting decisions are made.
Nevertheless, it is frequently the case that roles are cast from
outside the ensemble. When this happens auditions are typically by invitation.
Presently Third Rail holds general auditions once a year, usually in the late Spring. These auditions will be widely publicized and announced on local call boards.
Third Rail is a member of the
Portland Area Theatre Alliance (PATA). We strive to have auditors in attendance at
PATA's City-wide Auditions and encourage local actors to
attend the PATA generals. Third Rail members also work regularly at
other Portland theatres and see lots of local theatre. If you are
appearing in a local production and want to make sure we know about
it, feel free to drop us a line at firstname.lastname@example.org.
