Auditions & Submissions


Arizona Theatre Company conducts general auditions each year in both Tucson and Phoenix for actors who are interested in auditioning for our company. We also hold production-specific auditions throughout the year in various cities including New York, Los Angeles, Seattle, and San Francisco.

Arizona Theatre Company is holding general auditions for the 2019/2020 season in Tucson on Monday, July 15th, 2019 from 9:00-12:30 and 1:30-5:00pm at the Temple of Music and Art, 330 S. Scott, Tucson, AZ 85701.

Equity actors should contact Anna Jennings to make an appointment at 520-884-8210 ext. 7508 or ajennings@arizonatheatre.org. If you leave a voicemail, Ms. Jennings will return your call within 24 hours.

Non-Equity actors cannot make appointments but are welcome to attend and wait to be seen if time permits. Non-Equity actors interested in auditioning are welcome to contact Anna Jennings for more information.

Audition Requirements:

Please bring a current headshot and resume, and prepare one monologue and one song or two contrasting monologues totaling no more than three minutes combined. A piano accompanist will be provided if sheet music is presented. The total length of the audition must not exceed three minutes. Auditions are limited to actors above the age of 18. If necessary, callbacks for specific productions will be held at later dates throughout the season.

Arizona Theatre Company is an Equal Opportunity Employer committed to non-traditional and multi-cultural casting. Artists of color are encouraged to audition.

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 Anna Jennings at ajennings@arizonatheatre.org.
