Production casting and callbacks

Now accepting audition materials for the 2021/2022 Season until June 15, 2021

Dear Artists,

We hope you, your friends, families and colleagues are all staying strong, safe and healthy in these challenging times.

The Phoenix Theatre Company will not be holding any in-person general auditions for our 2021/2022 Season. However, we encourage all artists interested in auditioning in any future productions to prepare and submit a video audition.* 

Our friends at Actors Access and Breakdown Express have waived their fees for us to use their online platforms to hold an “Open Call Eco-Cast.” While this will allow us to store all auditions on one platform, all artists regardless of union status are welcome to submit materials to auditions@phoenixtheatre.com.

You will find a link below on how to submit your audition materials, including a general audition video.  This platform will allow our casting creative teams (both in town and out) to view your video audition remotely and privately.

If you have already submitted via Actors Access/Breakdown Express any time after March 2020 for our 2021 Season, you will need to resubmit your audition materials to the new Eco-Cast Call and submit the updated 2021/2022 Season audition form here. Please note that you are welcome to use the same audition video from the 2020/2021 Open Call or you may choose to upload a new video submission.

For instructions on how to submit your audition materials, please click the button below.
