Red Octopus Theatre Company's auditions are open to the public, and appointments are not necessary. Please arrive on time and let the attendant know if you will need to leave early. Callbacks are by invitation only.

Red Octopus Theatre Company is committed to inclusivity and does not discriminate with regard to gender, race, age, size, or ability. Most characters we encounter currently are on the binary and are written with he/him or she/her pronouns, and you will see that in the descriptions we provide. But however limiting the descriptions are, our casting seeks to be as inclusive as possible and we invite gender non-conforming, genderqueer, transgender, and non-binary actors to submit for the roles they most identify with. We will also list race/ethnicity when specific to the character, but are otherwise seeking all races and ethnicities. Please let us know if you have any questions, concerns.

Never miss another audition...

15-year-old Christopher has an extraordinary brain: He is exceptional at mathematics but ill-equipped to interpret everyday life. He has never ventured alone beyond the end of his road, he detests being touched, and he distrusts strangers. Now it is 7 minutes after midnight, and Christopher stands beside his neighbor’s dead dog, Wellington, who has been speared with a garden fork. Finding himself under suspicion, Christopher is determined to solve the mystery of who murdered Wellington, and he carefully records each fact of the crime. But his detective work, forbidden by his father, takes him on a thrilling journey that upturns his world.
