Casting/Submissions

 

CASTING: 

Thank you for your interest in Penobscot Theatre Company!

As a professional theatre, Penobscot Theatre Company engages both union and non-union performers. The theatre operates on a Small Professional Theatre (SPT) agreement and works with members of Actors Equity Association (AEA), United Scenic Artists (USA), and the Society of Stage Directors and Choreographers (SSDC). We offer a variety of union and non-union contracts throughout the season.

For consideration, please submit your materials to the form below: 

GENERAL CASTING SUBMISSIONS 

 

UPCOMING SEASON 21-22 AUDITION OPPORTUNITIES

  • Youth/Young Adults 

Auditions will be held on Friday, August 27th (5-7pm) & Saturday, August 28th (1-3pm for Young Adults only).

We are currently casting for a handful of roles to play ages 10-18. Performers of any age able to portray this range are encouraged to attend. 

At this time we are requiring that those who are not currently vaccinated to submit a taped audition. We are following all local, state, CDC, and artist union COVID-19 guidelines (which requires that the cast is fully vaccinated by the start of rehearsals) and the CDC. By welcoming taped auditions, we recognize and hope that those who are not currently able to be vaccinated will either become eligible due to an expansion of the approved age range or union guidelines will adjust prior to the start of rehearsals. While we cannot guarantee a change in policy, we encourage and invite all to audition as the status of regulations continue to evolve.

To request an Youth/YA audition slot or for more information on submitting a taped audition please contact casting@penobscottheatre.org

  • Equity Principle Auditions: 

EPA auditions will be held virtually for the 21-22 Season. All Equity members are invited to submit materials to the link below
