Open Workshop Auditions


Vanishing Point is inviting professional actors to attend open workshop auditions

In the next year we will be casting a number of projects and we would like to broaden our knowledge and network of professional actors living and working in Scotland.

We are particularly keen to meet actors who are under-represented in the performing arts in Scotland. This might include, but is not exclusive to, people of the global majority; those who identify as Black, Asian, Latinx, minority ethnic, D/deaf, people with disabilities, LGBTQIA+, people from socio-economically disadvantaged backgrounds and people without academic qualifications.

We are keen to meet actors without formal training, actors we haven’t worked with before of any age or gender, whether they are established and well-known, or whether they are just starting out in a professional career.

Making sure people are comfortable

We understand people will feel differently about attending events and with this in mind we are holding 3 different kinds of workshop:  

  1. Workshops that are in line with current COVID-regulations in Scotland. These will work to the minimum requirements of 1m distancing indoors and involve some movement.
  2. 2 meter physically distanced workshops, with more space and less movement.
  3. Online workshop(s), more focussed on meeting people and simple exercises.

How to Apply

To apply for a place, please complete the following form: 

Deadline: 12:00, Tuesday 7th September 2021

We will do our best to accommodate everybody who wishes to attend, but due to capacity we may need to offer places to those first to respond. We will prioritise people we have not previously worked with or met in auditions. If there is significant demand, we may organise additional workshops in different locations later in the year. 

We will contact you by email on Thursday 9th September to confirm whether we can offer you a place. 

If you haven't heard from us by Friday 10th September, please assume that you haven't been offered a place.
