Our thanks to all who auditioned
Vokes Players auditions are open to anyone, and are generally (although not always) by appointment. Vokes Players is committed to cultivating a diverse and inclusive community on our stage, through our creative and technical teams, and in our audience. Descriptions of characters, including gender and ages range, are listed as depicted in scripts. Actors of all ages, genders, races, and/or ethnic backgrounds are welcome to audition for any role. Audition notices are generally posted on New England Theatre 411, Stage Source, and other sites. We endeavor to be an inclusive and anti-racist organization. We welcome and encourage performers and team members of all colors, genders/gender non-conformity, body types and abilities to join us. We do not pre-cast or pre-choreograph our shows, and our practice is to cast our shows from the individuals who come to our auditions. In doing so, we strive to be as flexible and conscious with our casting as possible. In the spirit of preserving opportunities for actors who have traditionally been underserved by the entertainment community and allowing them to tell their own stories, we will not cast a white/Caucasian actor in a role specifically written for a BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, and People of Color) actor. For any role written specifically for a transgender or non-binary/gender non-conforming actor, or for a character with a specific disability or neurodivergence, we will prioritize, to the best of our ability, actors who are living that experience. Sexual, physical, or verbal harassment/abuse of any kind will not be tolerated within our organization. Above all, we value a strong work ethic; encourage the fostering of talent; and welcome all opportunities to expand our creativity as an artistic team.
Covid 19 Policy:
At this time, we do not require proof of vaccination for audience members. We do encourage our patrons to wear masks while in the theatre, but do not require it. Our board of directors meets regularly and will make changes to this policy based on state and local health guidelines and mandates. If you or a member of your household are experiencing any COVID symptoms, please stay home and contact our box office for information about ticket exchanges. All of our performers have provided proof of vaccination and will perform unmasked. We will continue to evaluate and update these policies as the situation evolves. Ticket holders will be notified of any changes regarding these policies. Thank you for your help in keeping everyone safe at Vokes Theatre. We look forward to seeing you soon!
