Auditions: The Great Gatsby




Tillamook Association for the Performing Arts (TAPA) is thrilled to announce open auditions for the popular play, The Great Gatsby, written by F. Scott Fitzgerald, adapted for the stage by Simon Levy, and directed by Steele Fleisher. Fitzgerald’s classic story is a trip back to prohibition America, the roaring 1920s and the shallowness of the nouveau-rich. The stage version faithfully follows the well-known novel, about the young and mysterious millionaire Jay Gatsby and his quixotic passion and obsession for the beautiful, rich former debutante Daisy Buchanan. Her cousin, Nick, is drawn into the captivating world of the wealthy, bears witness to their deceits, and pens us a tale of impossible love, dreams, and tragedy. 

TAPA is looking for up to nine men and four women, age mid-20s to mid-40s. No previous experience is necessary.

Auditions will be held at the Tillamook United Methodist Church, located at 3808 12th St in Tillamook, on Saturday January 30th and Sunday January 31st starting at 2:00 pm.

Performances will run May 6th – 21st.

Auditions packets are available here Gatsby Audition Packet, at the Tillamook County Library, or by e-mailing TAPA at info@tillamooktheater.com.
