NETC Theater Auditions

The annual NETC Theater Auditions provide a service whereby producers and directors of New England and other theatres from throughout the country meet in a group to audition and interview candidates for positions in summer and year-round professional theatres as performers, designers, technicians, and theatre / production staff.

These theatres offer both job-in and full-season employment, as well as apprentice and intern positions and Equity Membership Candidacy Programs. An average of 50 companies are represented at these auditions annually, including summer and year-round theatres (Equity and non-Equity), college-based summer theatres, repertory companies, Shakespearian and Renaissance Festivals, outdoor dramas and faires, music theatres, touring companies, children's theatres, and dinner theatres, whose seasons include the classics, dramas, musicals, comedies, and revues. Casting companies and professional theatre training companies and conservatories are also represented.

These auditions are open to non-Equity members and Equity Membership Candidates. Equity members are not eligible to apply.

Applicants must be college students or adults, 18 & older. High school students or individuals under 18 are not eligible. In addition to young performers, producers are interested in seeing mature, adult talent with professional experience and/or experience in community or summer theatres, for both seasonal and job-in employment. Producers will also be interviewing musical directors, designers, and applicants for technical and staff positions.

The application process for non-Equity performers begins in October, when the application forms become available for the following March.

Producers who wish to participate must also complete a registration form.

Performers please note: the application form for the Auditions must be postmarked no later than February 15th of the current year to be eligible. There will be no exceptions.

Technical staff may continue to submit applications until the dates of the Auditions.
