Character Cafe 2023

Auditions Due
October 5, 2023

Eastside Theater Company announces Open Auditions for  “Character Cafe 2023”!

Character Cafe is a one day event to be held on Saturday, December 2nd. It's a free community event that will be a part of the area's Fill a Bag SnowCap Foodbank campaign. We will have actors dress up in costume and interact with the audience. We are looking for heroes, villains, princesses, favorite storybook characters, and more! If cast, this is a volunteer role for our free ETC Character Cafe event. There is no tuition fee.

Online Auditions will be accepted through 11:59 pm on Thursday, October 5th, 2023.

The Video Audition Process

​For this event's auditions, we would like you to submit a video that includes the following: 


A slate is a basic introduction of who you are for the audition panel.
Please have your student say the following about themselves:

My name is _________.

I am ________ years old.

I am _______ Feet/Inches Tall.

I will be doing my monologue as ______________ (character of your choice).


Deliver a one-minute monologue as a character of your choice (such as your favorite princess, superhero, or villain). A Monologue is a scene performed by one person, acting as their character.

No makeup, costumes, or props, please. Accents are permissible.

You can find your own monologue by doing a web search for “audition monologues for kids”

We also have a few monologues you can use: Click Here for Monologues
