Other Roles:*

(optional) Genesius prides itself in giving roles to individuals who appear to look and act the part, regardless of past experience & expertise. "Seniority" or "I deserver a turn" is not how the casting decision is made. We encourage those who have no experience and are looking to try something new to give us a shot. We may take the audition process very seriously, but we also maintain a very welcoming and relaxed atmosphere during the audition process to encourage all walks to attend. We encourage our recent newcomers, here and there friends, as well as our veterans to audition as well. Together, we will put something together that best represents our vision for the productions.

Briefly, write in your 3 most recent productions, the role you had, and the year it took place. NOTE: Please leave blank if you have no previous experience or if you are planning to bring in a printed resume for the casting directors.

The copier will be needed for other tasks during auditions, and will not be available for you to make a copy of your resume. Please limit your printed resumes to a single page and a single side to promote professionalism and faster reference for the casting directors.
