Have you come across those sites that make you pay to view the details of auditions?  This isn’t one of those sites. I find them to be irritating.  This is merely a resource to help you find auditions you may not have seen or heard about.  If this site helps you out in your search, then I am happy.  Also, should you find that any of these notices are for unscrupulous acts, please notify me immediately at  Please feel free to let me know if this was useful to you!  Thanks a million.   The auditions listed here are for the Bay Area in California.

AS OF 11/2/13

A small film and video production company in the South Bay is seeking a young female comedian.

 One of our clients, a startup cellphone company, has asked us to create a comic social media video for them to use on their own sites – so pretty quick and low budget, but it’s a simple idea and we will do a great job on it. Without getting into detail it is based around a woman telling her boyfriend she is breaking up with him, and riffing through some of the reasons why, before we get to the final cut away shot showing the boyfriend is her cellphone – the video isn’t an advert, it is actually saying “live life without your cellphone taking it over” as a PSA-style two minute piece.
So we are looking for a local female comedian, who looks to be in her twenties, for the shoot.  She should be able to think on her feet (and ad lib her way through the concept as it isn’t scripted) and be able to work solo with the camera – a professional comic who can improvise rather than an actress who needs to be fed lines.
This is a half day paid gig that we need to shoot at the end of the coming week somewhere in the Bay, and as a bonus we can provide a high quality digital video file for her reel at the end of the project.

Redshift A Cappella is looking for an experienced tenor!

We are an 8-person co-ed group.
We get together every week because we love to sing – most of the current
group members been together more than 10 years. Rehearsals are once a week
but we take a break during the summer months.

Proficiency in vocal percussion would be a big plus but not necessary:
We’ve been using VP in almost half of our songs,
but that could change according to our interests and capabilities. In
addition to singing for ourselves, we perform (mostly pop and jazz) a
few times a year for audiences of 40 – 200, sometimes jointly with other
a cappella groups.

For more information or to arrange an audition, please reply to
with a brief description of your singing experience and
background in music.

Note: We rehearse mostly in the Palo Alto/Mountain View area.

An independent production of The Last Five Years in San Jose (May 2014) seeks the following:
-dancers who act and actors who dance…bonus points for willingness and ability to assist leads with quick hair/makeup/costume/small set changes

Please send resumes/headshots to
