Dedicated to the casting and employment of local Phoenix-based talent.
Actors are hired on a show-by-show basis during the season. Auditions for individual shows are by invitation only and are set by participation in our general auditions. The Phoenix Theatre Company produces classic and contemporary musicals, classic and contemporary dramas and comedies, world premiere plays and musicals, new work developmental readings and staged readings, and numerous outreach and community-based programming.
Production casting and callbacks
For callbacks, the Phoenix Theatre Company artistic staff, in consultation with directors, invites individual actors to read for roles in specific productions. These callbacks are based on participation in the General Auditions and are held throughout the year on an invitation-only basis in Phoenix and also possibly in New York, Chicago, Los Angeles, or Toronto (Canada) as the project warrants.
Seeing your work
Members of the Phoenix Theatre Company artistic staff try to see as many theatre performances as possible. If you are cast in a production in the Phoenix area, please send us an invitation card to our physical address (ATTN: DIRECTOR OF CASTING). Time permitting, one of the artistic staff members will attend. We regret that it is impossible for us to see everything.
Throughout the year, Equity actors visiting from out of town are welcome to request an audition appointment by emailing email@example.com. Auditions are scheduled contingent on the availability of the artistic staff.
