Arizona Theatre Company will hold general season auditions for Equity and non-Equity actors for the 2008-2009 season in Tucson and Phoenix. Phoenix auditions for non-Equity actors will take place on Tuesday, May 13 from 11 AM – 3 PM and 4:30 PM – 7:30 PM. Auditions for Phoenix Equity actors will take place on Friday, May 23 from 11 AM – 3 PM and 4:30 PM – 7:30 PM. Phoenix auditions will be held at the Herberger Theater Center in Center Stage, 222 E. Monroe Street in downtown Phoenix. Tucson auditions will take place on Wednesday, May 28. Auditions for Equity actors will be from 11 AM – 3 PM, and auditions for non-Equity actors will be from 4:30 PM – 7:30 PM. Tucson auditions will be held at the Temple of Music and Art, upstairs in the rehearsal hall, 330 S. Scott Avenue in downtown Tucson. Appointments are required to audition. To audition in Phoenix, contact Jana Contario at (602) 256-6899 x 6115. To audition in Tucson, contact Lydia Borowicz at (520) 884-8210 x 8508.

No music director or choreographer will be present at general auditions. Separate open call singing and dancing auditions for Equity and Non-Equity performers for HAIR will take place at a later date with an accompanist.

Actors must bring a recent headshot and current resume. Each actor is required to prepare two contrasting monologues totaling no more than four minutes combined. Actors may substitute a song for one of the two pieces, but no musical accompaniment will be provided, and the total length of the audition must not exceed four minutes. A cassette/CD player and piano will be available for those wishing to provide their own accompaniment. No accompanist will be provided should you choose to perform a song.

Arizona Theatre Company is an Equal Opportunity Employer committed to non-traditional and multi-cultural casting. Artists of color are urged to audition. Callbacks for specific roles in specific productions will be held at later dates throughout the season. All actor materials are kept on file for two years. Consequently, all actors who auditioned during the 2007-2008 season are not required to audition at this time. Non-Equity auditions are limited to actors aged 16 and older.

In an effort to keep current files of Arizona actors, ATC requests that local actors who are unable to attend the auditions send a headshot and resume to the following address: Casting, ATC, P.O. Box 1631, Tucson, AZ 85702-1631.
