Casting & Audition Policies
The 2018-2019 season casting is currently in progress! The first Equity Principal Audition (EPA) is scheduled for Friday, February 9th. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for an audition slot. AEA actors are given first priority but we invite EMC and non-equity actors to come and sign up day of in any available slots.
All professional actors who are interested in working at MTC are welcome to submit digital headshots and resumes at any time to the MTC casting department at email@example.com. Save the trees! No hard copy resumes please.
Equity principle auditions are held annually. Actors Equity Association actors are given priority slots. Non-union actors may stand by for open slots. EPA audition dates will be listed following the season announcement and are held in February of each year.
Following the EPA, invited auditions are held on a per show basis by invitation only. MTC accepts recorded auditions from out of town actors also by invitation only.
If you have not been called back, there is no additional notification sent from the casting department.
The casting department does its best to keep all called-back actors notified of casting timelines. Any called-back actor not cast will receive notification of release as soon as possible.
Marin Theatre Company accepts unsolicited scripts for season consideration when submitted by an agent, or when submitted to one of our two new play prizes, the David Calicchio Emerging American Playwright Prize, for professionally unproduced American playwrights, and the Sky Cooper New American Play Prize, for unproduced scripts by American playwrights at any career stage.
Information on these new play prizes can be found here.
There are many ways to get involved in Marin Theatre Company, but one of the best ways to get involved is by volunteering! Internships are also available for those with various qualifications both during the school year as well as during the summer. You can also apply for a job here or, if you are a professional actor, you may wish to send your materials in to our casting director. If you are a playwright and are interested in submitting a play, please read our policy on script submissions below.
Opportunities with the Front of House team—Be an Usher!
Join MTC’s Front of House team for an evening to help tear tickets, hand out programs and other fliers, and direct patrons to their seats—and watch the show for free! We ask that ushers arrive one hour before showtime (typically 6:30pm) to meet with the House Manager, and stick around after the show to assist with clean up in the house.
If you are interested in being a volunteer usher, please contact our Audience Services Manager Haley Bertelsen:
