This is an open call to both Union and Non-union actors and designers; However, as per Equity requirements, Equity members will be given first priority and non-members will be issued the remaining slots.

In addition, the participating casting professionals are committed to diverse and inclusive casting that engages qualified performers, without regard to age, disability, ethno-cultural, identity, gender, or any other basis prohibited by law. Priority will be given to artists who self-identify as culturally diverse or disabled, and to those auditioning for the first time at the annual general auditions. *Please indicate such when submitting your headshot.

Please note: Those who participated in last year’s General Auditions ARE eligible to audition again this year. As there will be new Artistic Directors in attendance, we would like to give them the opportunity to see everyone.


Those auditioning will be asked to prepare:

  • Two contrasting monologues of a maximum of two minutes each.

IMPORTANT: You may choose a song for your second piece. If this is the case, please indicate such when submitting as we will only have an accompanist for the first day and will be scheduling everyone auditioning with a song as a second piece on DECEMBER 11. Thank you for understanding.

Submit your Head Shot and Resume in PDF format and clearly indicate your union status (EQUITY, UDA, ACTRA: Full member or Apprentice). Please ensure that your Resume is ONE PAGE ONLY and includes an email address and phone number.

All submissions will be handled on a first-come-first-served basis.
Time slots will be allotted and confirmed by email on Friday, December 4.
