    General Audition Policy

    Magic Theatre casts both Equity and non-Equity actors. In accordance with the Bay Area Theatre Contract Tier 4, Magic Theatre holds two Equity-only auditions for specific shows each year. These are on the Equity hotline at least one week prior to the audition and posted in the AEA office. Equity actors self-select for these auditions.

    In addition, Magic Theatre holds one open call general audition and attends the annual Theatre Bay Area General Auditions.

    We do encourage headshot/resume submissions from both Equity and non-Equity throughout the year and which can result in an invitation to audition for a specific show.

    Performers of all ethnic and racial backgrounds are encouraged to attend.

    Please mail headshot/resume to:
