Auditions & Submissions

GENERAL AUDITIONS

Arizona Theatre Company conducts general auditions each year during late spring in both Tucson and Phoenix for actors who are interested in auditioning for our company. We also hold production-specific auditions throughout the year in various cities including New York, Los Angeles, Seattle, and San Francisco.

TUCSON:
General season auditions for Tucson Equity and non-Equity actors will take place on Wednesday, April 11, from 12:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. and 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. Tucson auditions for Equity actors are scheduled for Thursday, April 12, from 5:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. Tucson auditions will be held in the ATC Rehearsal Hall at the Temple of Music and Art in downtown Tucson, 330 S. Scott Ave.

NOTE: There will be a voluntary general meeting for all local Tucson actors with Artistic Director David Ivers at 5:30 p.m. on Wednesday, April 11, prior to the evening audition session. This will be an opportunity for local performers to meet the new Artistic Director and have a dialogue and Q & A session concerning ATC plans and activities for the upcoming season and beyond.

PHOENIX:
Auditions for Phoenix Equity actors will take place on Monday, April 9, from 1:00 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. and 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. Phoenix auditions for Equity and non-Equity actors will take place on Tuesday, April 10, from 2:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. and 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. Phoenix auditions will be held in the Kax (black-box theatre) of the Herberger Theater Center in downtown Phoenix, 222 E. Monroe St. (entrance at the stage door on the north side of the building off Van Buren).

NOTE: There will be two voluntary general meetings for all local Phoenix actors with Artistic Director David Ivers on Monday, April 9, prior to the audition sessions of that day. The first will be at 12:30 p.m., and the second at 5:30 p.m. This will be an opportunity for local performers to meet the new Artistic Director and have a dialogue and Q & A session session concerning ATC plans and activities in the upcoming season and beyond.

Auditions in both cities for Equity and non-Equity actors are limited to actors above the age of 18. If actors under the age of 18 are required for a production, those auditions will be held at a later date.

Appointments are required to audition. To schedule an audition appointment in Tucson or Phoenix, please call Anna Jennings at 520-884-8210 x7508. If you leave a voice message, Ms. Jennings will return your call within 24 hours.

Actors must bring a recent headshot and current resume to the audition. Each actor is required to prepare two contrasting monologues totaling no more than four minutes combined. Actors may substitute a song for one of the two pieces. A piano accompanist will be provided if sheet music is presented. A CD player will also be available. There will be an auxiliary hook-up to the CD player available for those who have their recorded music track on their cell phones. The total length of the audition must not exceed four minutes.

Callbacks for specific productions will be held at later dates throughout the season. It is anticipated that there will be local auditions for The Music Man and American Mariachi, and perhaps for other titles as well.

Arizona Theatre Company is an equal opportunity employer committed to nontraditional and multicultural casting. Artists of color are encouraged to audition.
