Milwaukee Repertory Theater Casting Information
Milwaukee Repertory Theater operates its Quadracci Powerhouse, Stiemke Studio, and Stackner Cabaret under LORT (League of Resident Theatres) B and D contracts with Actors’ Equity Association, the union for professional actors and stage managers. All auditions for specific productions are scheduled by appointment only.
Equity Auditions are held each spring in Chicago and Milwaukee after our season is announced. Once the Chicago audition dates are announced, actors can either make an appointment in person at the Equity office or call the Chicago Equity audition hotline. Please take note that Milwaukee Rep does not schedule appointments; all appointments are scheduled though the Equity office. Local Equity auditions are scheduled through Milwaukee Rep’s Artistic Department.
Non-Union Auditions are held annually as part of the Non-Union Milwaukee General Auditions. From time to time, in accord with the guidelines of Actors Equity and the League of Resident Theatres, Milwaukee Rep is able to hire non-union talent. Please note that the priority in casting non-union roles is generally with Milwaukee Repertory Theater’s Artistic Intern Company because of the tremendous contribution of time and effort they give throughout an entire season. (Please note: The Non-Union Milwaukee General Auditions, while hosted by Milwaukee Rep, are a separate entity.)
Milwaukee Repertory Theater is committed to non-traditional casting and encourages actors of all backgrounds to audition.
Auditions for young performers are held when Milwaukee Repertory Theater has the need to cast young performers in a specific production. All auditions for young performers will be held on a per show basis. Please check this page, along with our Facebook page for audition announcements. Please no phone calls.
How to submit: Electronic submissions must be formatted correctly in order to be considered. Both your résumé and picture should be either in a Word or a PDF format as one attachment and your name must appear on your picture. Please note your current city of residence in your email. Requests should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
