Open Auditions Autumn 2019: Doncaster

Friday 04 October 2019, 3.00pm – 9.00pm @ Cast, Waterdale, Doncaster, DN1 3BU.

We’re running Open Auditions again!

As usual, we’re looking to meet actors previously unknown to Paines Plough with a passion for new writing, this time in Doncaster and the surrounding area. You can apply from now until midnight on Wednesday 18 September.

We will be seeing approximately 30 actors and preference will first be given to those living within 30 miles of Cast, with any remaining slots being allocated at random. We hope this means that everyone who wants to apply is able to, and that the selection process is fair to everyone.

Sounds good? This is how to apply…

Register by filling in this form by midnight on Wednesday 18 September. There’s no need to send in anything else in advance.

If you are selected to audition, we’ll get in touch with you by Tuesday 24 September with an audition time – make sure you let us know if you can make it or not as soon as possible. If we don’t hear from you by midday on Friday 27 September we will reallocate you slot to someone on the waitlist.

Don’t worry, you’ll hear from us whatever the outcome. If you’re not selected to audition this time, we may keep you on a waiting list and may offer you an audition if a slot becomes available.

Once everything’s confirmed, please prepare a three-minute monologue from a play written in the last 15 years.

Some things to bear in mind:

If you have auditioned for Paines Plough before (either at an Open Audition or as part of casting for a specific show), unfortunately we won’t be able to see you this time round.

To give everyone a fair shot, agent or not, we only accept applications from actors so, if you have an agent, please apply using your own email address.

Places are all allocated in advance. Due to high demand we can’t accommodate requests for a different time, and we will be unable to see people on a walk-up basis. In the application, you’ll be able to indicate what time of day you’re available and we’ll try our best to accommodate this.

If for any reason you can’t make your audition please let us know ASAP by emailing If you don’t turn up to your audition without letting us know in advance, you won’t be able to apply for future Paines Plough Open Auditions.

We can only accept applications made with this form before the deadline.

Due to the large volume of people we’ll be seeing, we unfortunately won’t be able to offer feedback.

We aren’t casting for a particular show at the moment – we just want to meet some new actors so that we can bear you in mind for future productions.

Check out our FAQs for more information about the application process and what to expect on the day, or ping us an email at if you’re not sure about anything.

Don’t worry if you don’t live in the area – we try to hold as many Open Auditions as we can throughout the year all around the UK. Join our mailing list or keep an eye on our social media for details of the next ones…

Hope to see you there!
