AMATEUR actors of all ages are being sought for a production of Hotel Bonegilla which will mark 70 years since the migrant camp opened.

HotHouse Theatre is staging a community reading of the play at its Wodonga base in November.

An audition will be held from 6pm on August 22 at the Butter Factory Theatre.

Artistic director Lyn Wallis said 34 actors were needed with the reading which will feature a set and period costumes reflecting the late 1940s.

Hotel Bonegilla, written by Greek-Australian Tes Lyssiotis, was staged by HotHouse in 1997 after premiering in Melbourne in 1983.

It tells the story of various immigrants making a new life in Australia.

HotHouse is also calling for 2017-18 Studio Ensemble members.

The group fosters actors aged 17 to 26.
