Submission Policy:

Most of the casting for Guthrie Theater productions is done locally, although some out-of-town actors are hired for almost every Guthrie production. The majority of out-of-town casting is arranged through the Guthrie's New York City representative, McCorkle Casting (575 Eighth Ave., 18th Fl., New York, New York 10018).

Auditions for specific productions are held in Minneapolis and in New York as needed throughout the year. The Guthrie Theater's annual Twin Cities general auditions are usually scheduled in the spring. Occasionally, Guthrie auditions are held in other major cities (such as Los Angeles, Seattle, and Chicago).

Actors who wish to submit their pictures and resumes are welcome to send them via regular mail to John Miller-Stephany, Associate Artistic Director. No calls.

The Guthrie Theater does not accept unsolicited scripts from any source and does not request scripts based on reading synopses or sample dialogue.
