The Falcon's Eye Theatre at Folsom Lake College calls for FLC students and actors from the community to virtually audition for its spring production of Party at Pixieland Picnic on Tuesday, February 2, 2021 from 6:30 to 9:30pm via Zoom. All skill levels encouraged to audition.
About the Production
Party at Pixieland Picnic is a magical experience for children. Fairies, elves, and other creatures will welcome children to a special, interactive live Zoom experience. Best of all ...the magic will come alive before their very eyes as children discover exciting items INSIDE THEIR OWN HOMES (parental instructions will be provided).
Open monologue auditions will be conducted online via Zoom on Tuesday, February 2, 2021 from 6:30 to 9:30pm. Sign-up for an audition time. You will then be contacted to confirm your audition in the days leading up to auditions.
Note: All auditioners will need to attend the open monologue session, regardless of whether they have performed in a Falcon's Eye production in the past.
In order to audition via Zoom, you will need reliable access to high speed internet, and a computer/tablet/phone that is capable of running Zoom (you can test your device at: https://zoom.us/test). Your device will also need a functioning camera and microphone.
What to Prepare
You MUST prepare a contemporary comedic monologue that is approximately 60 seconds long. This monologue should best portray the actor's strengths. The monologue must be memorized and will be performed online via Zoom.
It is requested that auditioners email a full-sized photo-headshot and resume of acting experience, if available, prior to the audition to: email@example.com, but this is not required.
At least three days before the audition date, we will email you information about how the auditions will work on Zoom and a Zoom meeting link.
Actors who are cast in one of the online productions will need a relatively new computer with Google Chrome browser installed, access to reliable high speed internet, and reliable access to a secure private location to work remotely that is at least 12 feet square. Other gear and equipment for the online performance will be provided by Falcon's Eye.
