Professional Auditions

Theater Emory attends the Unified Auditions sponsored by the Atlanta Coalition for the Performing Arts (ACPA) every spring. See the ACPA website www.atlantaperforms.biz. Actors who attended these auditions are welcome to audition for Theater Emory in response to specific casting notices for 2017-2018 productions. Auditions for Theater Emory are held only in Atlanta; we don't audition in other cities. In addition to Atlanta "hotlines" TE audition notices are generally posted online at ACPA and (for Equity notices) online in "Casting Call" at www.actorsequity.org.

Theater Emory is the producing affiliate of Theater Studies within the Department of Theater and Dance, and a professional theater operating under a Small Professional Theater contract with Actors' Equity Association, the union for professional stage actors and stage managers. Our productions typically feature both student and professional actors (both Equity and non-Equity). Please note that roles in the age range of 30 or under are usually awarded to students. Professionals in the over-30 age range are most likely to find employment here. It is unusual for Theater Emory to hire actors that are not based in the Atlanta or North Georgia region. No housing is available to out of area performers. Theater Emory seeks a company that reflects the cultural diversity of the community we serve.

Professional actors may submit headshots and résumés for general consideration at any time to Robert Schultz, Casting Coordinator.  We wiil effort to steer actors into our specific auditions.  We do not cast soley on the basis of headshots and résumés.
