2015 STAGE: Avatar Repertory Theater seeks actors (M & F)

 Avatar Repertory Theater seeks voice actors (M & F)
Avatar Repertory Theater is searching for male and female voice actors to join the longest-running live theater company in the metaverse! 
"The theatre is the only institution in this world which has been dying for four thousand years and has never succumbed. It requires tough and devoted people to keep it alive. " John Steinbeck

You'll need:

  • Some acting experience.
  • A working knowledge of avatar control, Inventory, Appearance, using animations.
  • Reasonable quality headphones and microphone (we will help you if you don't know what to get). 
  • See below for information and instructions

Information and instructions

Please email an MP3 audition recording to:   

Your audition should consist of 60 seconds of contemporary dialog and 60 sec of Shakespeare. Comedic or dramatic or both is fine.

In the email please list other virtual world skills you have, and brief summary of your theater or voice experience. Or drop a notecard to MadameThespian Underhill iSL.

We are currently performing in Second Life, every other Friday at 5pm Pacific (SLT) with usually a 4pm call that day, and usually one other rehearsal, scheduled depending on actor availability. Plans are in the works to expand to several of the OpenSim grids. We usually meet once a week, Sundays at 3PM Pacific (SLT).  It we get addidtional actors interested in performing in OpenSim, we will consider performances in hypergrid connected grids.

We pay, not much but some; right now it's US$10/show, by check or PayPal. 

Avatar Repertory Theater is a project of New Media Arts Inc., a nonprofit organization tax exempt under IRC 501(c)(3). We gratefully accept donations, which may be tax deductible for you, depending on your location and circumstances.

How to handle a Hypergrid address 

From any Hypergrid-enabled grid, paste the address into the navigation bar of Firestorm and press enter. Or paste it into the world map search bar of any viewer, search, and click Teleport when the destination is found. If it doesn't work, don't give up. Try again in a minutes.  Sometimes the first try fails (probably times out).  And try again a few hours later. Some hypergrid destinations are offline part of the day.
