The Playwrights' Center mid-season auditions will be held Monday, December 17, 2018 from 10:30 a.m. - 11:30 a.m. The audition will consist of reading one of the sides listed below. We will provide printed copies. Please bring an updated headshot and resume.

Please read the following carefully before requesting an audition.

If you are interested in scheduling an audition, please email casting@pwcenter.org with your availability, headshot, and resume. (If you have been involved with a Playwrights' Center workshop in the last two years, there is no need to audition.)

The Playwrights' Center develops 50-60 new plays each year, and seeks actors to participate in development workshops. After our general auditions, we will update our database of actors to be considered for workshops. We contact actors throughout the year to cast individual workshops. Most workshops are between 10-25 hour contracts. Almost all workshops are held on weekdays in the morning and afternoon. Please do not request an audition if you do not have daytime availability.

Both equity and non-equity actors are encouraged to audition.

If you would like to read the play that the excerpt is taken from, please email Julia at juliab@pwcenter.org.

PLEASE NOTE: These sides are for audition purposes only. None of the plays represented below will be workshopped this season. You are welcome to choose any of the following sides. We will have printed copies available for you.
