The Majestic Theatre (a division of the City of Corvallis Parks and Recreation department) is committed to equity, diversity, and inclusion and to creating a safe place for actors of all backgrounds to explore their craft. We are particularly eager to work with artists of color and other artists from marginalized communities. All auditions are free and open to the public. This audition is for an amateur, volunteer production. The Majestic Theatre staff and volunteers do not discriminate on the basis of age, national origin, race, gender, ethnic background, ability, religious beliefs, sexual orientation, or any protected class.
Military veterans find a voice to share their stories of service when matched up with local
playwrights and actors to bring their stories to the stage. These eight, 10-minutes or less, plays explore the realities of serving and being a veteran in our country.
FROM THE DIRECTOR Leigh Matthews Bock
Being part of South Willamette Valley Honor Flight (www.swvhonorflight.org) for nearly 10
years has produced within me a great appreciation for our veterans. Spending time with veterans has been one of the greatest blessings in my life. It is an honor and privilege to create a space for us to hear our veterans’ voices. Please email Leighmbock@comcast.net to receive a selection of sides from some of our past veteran stories. Video yourself on your phone or computer performing/reading one side, and email it to Leighmbock@comcast.net by Thursday, September 23, 2021 by 5 pm with any rehearsal conflict(s).
