Everyman Repertory Theatre will hold an open call for actors Tuesday, Jan. 17 from 6.30 to 9 p.m. at the Rockport Opera House, 6 Central St. This call is for the troupe’s spring production of “Freud’s Last Session” (two men) by Mark St. Germain, currently the longest running off-Broadway play; as well as for the summer production of Noel Coward’s “Blithe Spirit” (two men, five women).

“We hold open auditions about once a year, both to cast current shows and to help us figure out who is out there so that when it comes to choosing plays for the next season we know what we can cast. It’s very important for increasing the size of the company,” said Paul Hodgson, Everyman’s artistic director.

Male and female actors of all ages are encouraged to attend; some professional experience or training is a plus. A prepared monologue is welcome but not necessary, as attendees will read from scripts. David Greenham, former artistic director of the Theater at Monmouth, will be directing “Freud’s Last Session.”

“We’re very much looking forward to working with David, who has many years at Monmouth before stepping down last October and is now working as the adjunct professor of drama at the University of Maine at Augusta,” said Hodgson.

The opera house should be accessed from the side entrance; actors will be called upstairs to the theater to audition. For more information, contact Jennifer Hodgson at 236-0173 or jengardens@roadrunner.com.

The Everyman Repertory Theatre, founded in 2008, is a registered 501(c)3, not-for-profit theater company committed to bringing live, professional theater to the people of Midcoast Maine.
