Information about upcoming auditions

A Call for Talent!

Cloverdale Performing Arts Center is looking for individuals interested in participating in the upcoming season of events at CPAC.

Due to the pandemic, we have transitioned to being a theatre completely comprised of volunteers, which means we are unable to offer any stipends or pay. Everything we produce is our way of keeping the theatre alive during these crazy times.

The beginning of the year will be primarily online with pre-recorded content. We hope to be back in the theatre by the summer or fall. Due to the uncertainty caused by COVID, this list is subject to change.

If you are interested as an actor, please submit contrasting monologues totaling no more than 5minutes. These should be shared via google drive or Dropbox to

amy@cloverdaleperformingarts.com.

Mars Station Chrysalis:  (Rehearsal/recording March/April series begins Mid April) We are seeking 7 actors to participate in this six week comedy series written by Cloverdale local, Carol Keig and directed by Dan Stryker. This series follows 6 characters on a Mars space station, and will be a 20-30minute zoom series.

Books Onstage: (One Friday a month at 7:30pm, online until we are back in the theatre) Seeking authors interested in doing a 30-40minute online interview including: a reading from their book followed by a live Q&A. We will promote you and your book on our social media sites leading up to the interview and do a giveaway of your book to one of the viewers!

CPAC’s Poetry Share & Dead Poet Society: (Recording early April, shared April 10th) This will be a celebration of original poetry for April’s Poetry Writing Month. We are also going to continue our Dead Poet society throughout the summer. Please watch our FB site for a schedule in May/June.

Open Mic Nights: We will have several recording or in theatre dates May-September with time slots for anyone interested in participating in open mic. These will be just like our usual open mic nights if we are allowed in the theatre by then, and if not they will be recorded safely and shared on our YouTube and Facebook sites until we can return to the theatre.

2021 New Works Festival with the theme of Renewal/Transformation: (Dates: August rehearsals/Show dates Sept 17th-19th) We are seeking playwrights, directors and actors interested in participating in our annual NW Fest. We will be sharing these for free on FB and YouTube the day of the event and hope to have a weekend in the theatre as well!

Project Frankenstein: (create in Sept/Projects shared Oct 25-31st) Our Halloween creative fundraiser will return. Each entrant is given a chapter of Frankenstein and asked to CREATE. It can be anything: art, storytelling, a scene, floral design, etc. This is a fun and friendly competition/fundraiser for CPAC. The top three winners will be awarded a basket of goodies!

“Main-stage” Shows: CPAC will be replacing three of our main-stage shows: Crimes of the Heart, Funny Money and The Somewhat True Tale of Robin Hood with shows that are of a smaller cast size for health and safety reasons.

Our first “main-stage show” is Fade by Tanya Saracho, and will be recorded and shared online to ticket holders.

Fade is a two person show directed by Beulah Vega.

Our summer show, that will be replacing Funny Money, is The God of Hell by Sam Shepard; directed by Athena Gundlach. We are hoping that The God of Hell will be performed in the theatre.

The Beard of Avon is moving forward in October; written by Amy Freed, directed by Beulah Vega.

Our holiday show is TBA, please check back here at a later date.

We are hoping to be able to do Funny Money, Robin Hood, and Crimes of the Heart in 2022 when things have returned to normal.
