Open Call Casting Workshop
Monday 18th and Tuesday 19th July 2022
In collaboration with Scottish Casting Workshop we will be hosting open call auditions for prospective performers who would like to be considered for A Play, a Pie and a Pint productions.
Over the two days we will run six sessions, each session lasting 2 hours. The sessions will be lead by Louise Haggerty from Scottish Casting Workshop, and will be attended by the PPP team and freelance directors who are working for PPP over the coming season/s.
Each session will have a maximum capacity of 14. We encourage everyone attending to take a lateral flow test at the beginning of each day.
We are particularly keen to hear from performers:
- that graduated from drama training in the year 2021 or 2022
- that haven’t worked with us before, or haven’t worked for PPP in the past year
- that identify as a person of the global majority *
- that identify as d/deaf disabled**
To be considered for audition please right click and follow this link to complete the Google Form before Thursday 7th July 2022 at midday. You will be contacted by the team by Thursday 14th July to confirm if you have been selected. Applications will be considered by the PPP team prioritising the groups listed above.
Applicants must be 18 years or older.
We anticipate a high volume of applicants and unfortunately won’t be able to offer feedback on application or to see everyone, but plan to continue holding auditions on a bi-annual basis.
Participants will be asked to participate in a 2 hour group workshop with an opportunity to present scenes of dialogue as part of the session.
Please wear clothes you are comfortable to move in.
You will receive a duologue script at least 5 days before the workshop with a part to learn. So we can see you at your best please try to be off book.
There will be a 30 minute group warm up session then the group will be split into pairs to perform the duologues together in the space.
This session will be 14 actors playing together in the room, have fun and follow your impulses.
*including those from African and Caribbean diaspora, Latinx, the East Asian diaspora, the South East Asian Diaspora, from the South Asian Diaspora, West Asian (includes Middle East) Diaspora, indigenous people, bi-racial/ mixed heritage, or who also self-identify as a Person of Colour or Black, we may use Global Majority to refer to people from these identities.
** Please submit a disability rider with your application – we want to ensure that you have what you need. For example, if you require a BSL interpreter we will organise this in advance.

We appreciate that not everyone can attend these dates and will hold further auditions in the future – this is not the only opportunity to audition for us. In the current climate and with a new rehearsal space that we are just getting used to, it may be that we can’t accommodate everyone within these sessions due to availability, space and access. We will endeavour to see as many people as possible, but we may need to see some candidates another time.
