Walnut Street Theatre is dedicated to the casting and employment of local Philadelphia-based talent. Auditions for each production begin locally. In accordance with Actors' Equity Association, we hold multiple open call auditions each springtime, both in Philadelphia and New York. Information about these auditions will be made available through AEA, Backstage, and Playbill.
All other auditions held throughout the year are scheduled by appointment only. The theatre also participates in the Greater Philadelphia Annual Auditions.
