PETERBOROUGH — The Peterborough Players will hold auditions and interviews for the 2018 Summer Season starting at 3:00pm on Thursday, March 15 at the Players’ theatre located at 55 Hadley Road, Peterborough, NH. Artistic Director Gus Kaikkonen will see auditions from members of Actors’ Equity, non-Equity local actors, and from those interested in joining the Players’ Second Company as an intern or apprentice.

Equity members should prepare two contrasting monologues. The audition will be a general one for the entire season, not necessarily for specific roles.  Non-Equity actors who are not interested in a season-long internship or apprenticeship will audition for possible supporting roles in the Players’ larger-cast productions such as THE SKIN OF OUR TEETH. Non-Equity actors should have at least one monologue prepared (memorized is preferred but not necessary) and be ready to read from one of the scripts from the season.

As the Main Stage Summer Season will include one full-scale musical, actors wishing to be considered for that show should have a prepared song and be ready to demonstrate their dancing skills.

The Second Company is comprised of interns and apprentices who make a minimum 11-week commitment to the Players’ Summer Season. Intern actors will perform in the two Second Company plays, and many will play a supporting role in at least one of the Main Stage series plays. In addition, Second Company members work in the various technical shops and offices, and serve on run crews. Work begins for the Second Company on June 7; the earliest release date is August 26. Those interested in performing with the Second Company should prepare a monologue and be prepared to sing something a cappella. In addition to auditions for Second Company actors, interviews will be held for those interested in technical or administrative internships or apprenticeships.

Auditions are by appointment only. To schedule a time or to obtain further information, call 603-924-9344.
