Casting

Walnut Street Theatre is dedicated to the casting and employment of local Philadelphia-based talent. All auditions are scheduled by appointment only, and begin in Philadelphia first. We hold EPAs in both Philadelphia and New York City for the entire season each spring after the announcement of our season. We also participate in the Greater Philadelphia Annual Auditions. Non-local talent can be seen for our Mainstage productions in New York City during our EPA and Chorus Calls. This information is released on Backstage and the Actor's Equity website throughout the year. All other New York auditions are by agent appointment only.

For consideration, please forward you headshot, resume, and cover letter indicating the show/role of interest to:
Brian Kurtas | Casting Director
