Portland Center Stage at The Armory is a LORT B Theater and is required to hire actors who are members of Actors’ Equity Association. We hire non-union actors when possible and in accordance with the union rules. More information about Actors’ Equity can be found at actorsequity.org.
Actors are hired on a show-by-show basis during the season and auditions for individual shows are by invitation only. Portland Center Stage at The Armory holds open general auditions annually in the spring. These auditions are announced on the AEA website, our website, and our social media pages. If you are a member of Actors’ Equity Association, planning to be in Portland and would like to schedule an audition, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
For any general audition, please prepare two contrasting one minute monologues and provide two 8″x 10″ photos and current resumes.
The artistic staff at The Armory tries to see as many shows as possible in the Portland area. If you would like us to come and see your work please send an invitation email to email@example.com. We regret that it is impossible for us to see every production.
The Armory is currently able to accept script submissions only from theatrical literary agents and from artists with whom we have an existing professional relationship. We regret that we are unable to accept any unsolicited manuscripts or excerpts at this time, and we appreciate your interest in sharing your work with us.
