Geffen Playhouse


Matt Shakman, Artistic Director

Submission Policy:

The Geffen Playhouse holds Equity auditions each year. Actors' Equity Association will schedule and monitor those auditions. More information can be found on their website. Auditions are usually held before May each year, after a new season is announced.

A breakdown will be posted to ask for agent and manager submissions when roles are available for specific plays. Auditions will be held if needed.

Any actor is welcome to send a picture and resume to Phyllis Schuringa, Casting Director.

Script Submissions:
Due to a high volume of material, at this time the theater only accept plays submitted by literary agents. If you are not represented at this time, you are welcome to submit a synopsis and ten sample pages of a script for our perusal. If the play is something that suits our needs at this time, we will ask you to send a complete version of the script.

Inquiries can be sent via email to: [email protected] or via postal mail.

Note, the theater has a three- to six-month turn around on scripts.
