TheatreWorks Casting 


TheatreWorks holds general auditions locally twice a year, typically in March and September.  We also attend the regional auditions held by Theatre Bay Area, and conduct Equity auditions in New York and Los Angeles. For each show in our season, we set up casting sessions by invitation and agent submission.

We also cast actors throughout the year for staged readings and musical workshops in our New Works Initiative and for programs with our Education Department, including a school tour show and one-day projects with high school age writers.


TheatreWorks is a member of the League of Resident Theatres (LORT). We cast both Equity and non-Equity artists, in plays, full-scale musicals and plays with music, including world premieres and second productions with authors in residence and established scripts. Please see our production history.  We work under LORT B, C, and Experimental Theatre Contracts. We have a long tradition of multicultural programming and casting. Our normal schedule is 2 or 3 weeks in the rehearsal hall, 2 weeks of tech and previews, and a 3 to 4 week run.  We rehearse 6 days a week, and perform up to 8 shows per week.


To Arrange an Audition


Actors can request an appointment online for one of our two general auditions (usually held in March and September.) Details are posted on this website and on Theatre Bay Area, Bay Area Theatre Bums, and LiveSV listings, as well as on our casting voice mailbox: 650.463.1950 ext. 7520. To request an appointment, follow the link which will be posted here and in the voice mailbox when we start taking requests. At general auditions, we ask that actors present two monologues or, for singers, one monologue and one song.


Actors may instead attend the annual General Auditions held by Theatre Bay Area in January or February each year, or one of our out-of-town Equity auditions, announced on the Equity hotlines.
