Open Auditions - Applications now open

This autumn, the Traverse will hold a number of open auditions in order to widen our knowledge of who's out there and meet actors we may not otherwise meet.

We're keen to meet actors we've never worked with before and from as wide a range of backgrounds as possible. If you think we should know who you are and what you do - then we want to hear from you.

Each open audition day will have limited slots to ensure we have enough time to get to know you, hear you read and learn about your passions.

Each slot will last approximately 15-20 minutes and will involve a chat about your work and your ambitions, alongside an audition monologue of your choice.

Audition slots will be selected at random from everyone who applies in order to ensure as fair a selection process as possible. The selected actors will then be contacted with an audition slot for the day.

For the monologue we ask you to prepare a 2 minute monologue from any play written over the last 15 years. You absolutely don't need to learn it off by heart (it's not a memory test!) so long you're familiar enough with it for it to showcase the best of your work.

Auditions will take place at the Traverse and will be fully accessible.


Applications open on Mon 1 Oct, until Sun 21 Oct. Applications are to be sent to
