Submission 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:

The Magic Theatre is a place where emerging and established playwrights engage audiences in a unique experience: the chance to participate in the development of new work that is staged in an intimate, professional setting, and that speaks to contemporary issues with originality and wit, a sense of urgency and adventure.
