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.
