Submission Policy:

McCarter Theatre has several opportunities for non-Equity actors throughout the season. Constantly looking for up-and-coming, non-equity talent and accept submissions year round. To submit a general submission, mail a hard copy of your headshot, resume, and cover letter.

Calls for Equity headshot/resume self-submissions are posted through Actors’ Equity Association’s NYC audition department on a show-by-show basis.

Script Submissions:
McCarter Theatre employs a search, rather than submission, method when scouting new work. Does not accept submissions. This includes submissions from agents, writers, and other theater artists. More focused and directed approach benefits both McCarter and the artists the theater serves.

McCarter Theatre is committed to nurturing new plays and artists through commissions, readings, workshops, retreats, and productions. We identify new artists by carefully following the work around us through contact with other theaters, festivals, graduate programs, and playwright development organizations, and through conversations with our colleagues around the country. Agents and artists with a relationship with McCarter who have a project they believe will be of particular interest to McCarter are invited to contact the artistic staff. If the project fits our needs and we believe it may be a possible fit for development or production in the next few seasons, we will respond with a request to read the script.

Theater Types:

LORT, Equity, Musical, Classical, Contemporary Plays
