Local Teen and Adult Auditions

Thank you for your interest in auditioning for Actors Theatre of Louisville.

Actors Theatre of Louisville will hold auditions for Non-Equity adult actors (ages 13 and older) on Sunday, May 17, 2016 from noon- 5 PM EST in the fifth-floor rehearsal hall of Actors Theatre’s administration building at 315 W. Market St.

The auditions are for introductory purposes and no specific roles are being cast at this time.  Actors must prepare a one-minute memorized monologue. The material may be taken from poetry, short stories, essays or plays.  All actors must bring a recent snapshot or photograph.

Auditions are made by appointment and can be scheduled starting on Monday, April 28th, 2016 by emailing auditions@actorstheatre.org.  Audition space is limited and appointments will be given until all appointments have been filled. No appointments will be made prior to April 28th, 2016.  Photos and resumes can be mailed to Actors Theatre of Louisville, Attention: Casting Department, or sent to auditions@actorstheatre.org.  Resumes are reviewed and filed according to experience. Resume files are updated every two years. Below is information about our casting policies and opportunities to audition both in Louisville and across the nation.

Actors Theatre of Louisville employs actors under the LORT (League of Regional Theatres) contract with Actors’ Equity Association, the union for professional actors and stage managers. The union determines the number of non-Equity actors in any production. The priority in casting non-union roles is always with the Actors Theatre Apprentice Company because of the tremendous contribution of time and effort they give without compensation throughout an entire season.
