Scripts Alive collaborates with Writers by producing script readings of their work. We cast actors who are eager to workshop, test, and read new or developing scripts.

Working online enables artists from all over Australia to collaborate. This is a great opportunity to connect with Writers whilst adding more experience and credits to your CV. If you are cast, your headshot and CV will be sent to the Writer for their record.

Appreciating that this is a volunteer based cast, we aim to workshop and execute the rehearsal and final reading using the least amount of time.

How does it work?

Actors who respond to our casting callout will be asked to email their headshot, CV, showreel/selftape and availability. Once cast and availability is confirmed, dates for rehearsal and the final reading will be set.

What are actors required to do?

As previously mentioned, a moved reading is when actors perform a play with script in hand. You are not required to learn lines.

We are essentially workshopping the play, so we want actors to feel free to make bold choices and bring their creativity to the table. We will discuss costume, moving around the space, and connecting to the script in rehearsal.

To achieve the best outcome, actors are encouraged to do their own script analysis as this will enhance their performance and the outcome of the final reading. Any questions or uncertainties about the script can be discussed in rehearsal or via email with the producer.
