Questions from Actors, Directors and Crew Members

How can I get involved?

We are always seeking actors, directors, set designers, musicians and other crew members to be involved with the company.  We are constantly looking for new talent.  Most positions are volunteer, but we strive to offer a stipend to most major production team members. Open auditions for actors are held for each production.

Are all roles open for each show?

Generally, yes. A few shows may have certain roles pre-cast, and unavailable roles will be identified with audition information.  Because directors stay open-minded until auditions are held, pre-casting is rare.

Are actors paid?

In some cases, yes. In some cases, no. Compensation is determined before an actor accepts a role that is offered. A contract is issued with each production team member stipulating compensation and other factors. As with other theater companies, cast and crew members receive two tickets during a show’s run in which they participate.

Do you hire Equity actors?

It depends on the production and its budget. Special contracts are often available to Actors’ Equity union members, and we have used those in the past.

When are rehearsals held?

Rehearsal schedules are determined before casting, with reviewed with the productions’ directors. Two weeks before opening, rehearsals are often held Monday through Friday evenings and Saturday mornings.
