Call for Auditions

Welcome to Almost, Maine. A town so far north it’s almost in Canada. Well, almost. One cold, clear Friday night in the middle of winter, while the northern lights hover in the sky above, Almost’s residents find themselves falling in and out of love in the strangest ways. Knees are bruised. Hearts are broken. Love is lost, found, and confounded. And life for the people of Almost, Maine will never be the same. Almost, Maine: It’s love. But not quite.

Audition Information/Instructions:

PLEASE RSVP to director Jon Herbert at with the dates you plan on auditioning.

HOW WE WORK: You are welcome to come to auditions on more than one of the initial audition evenings. This is not a requirement. Most auditions have actors up and down to read multiple times in multiple combinations and scenes. Most actors find this fun. As space allows, you will be able to watch all the auditions. You may be asked to go into the hallway with audition partners and work a bit on a scene. We will do our best to get you up multiple times reading for parts you are interested in. You will also be asked to read for other parts you may not be auditioning for. We strive to make our productions open to interested and engaged actors & actresses, regardless of their level of experience. We try and make our auditions as relaxing and fun as possible.

AUDITION PROCESS: Auditions will consist of readings from the script – No monologue required although one of the sides may be a monologue from the play.

AUDITION SIDES: Sides for the audition process will be supplied at auditions and are included in this announcement. Additional sides may be added at the auditions.

AUDITION FORM: Resumes and headshots will be accepted but are not required. Please ALSO COMPLETE the attached Almost Maine Audition Form and bring it with you to the audition.

RSVP: Please send us an RSVP if you plan to audition to (or email us any questions you may have).
