Submission Policy:

Auditions:
The Public Theatre is a Professional Equity Theatre (SPT cat 8). Each season, the Public Theatre conducts several auditions at the theatre in Maine, as well as in New York City.

TPT generally holds auditions for individual productions throughout the season as needed by appointment only. The first round of NYC appointment auditions are usually held in mid August. Local auditions for specific productions are generally held at the theatre over the summer and as needed throughout the year.

As we use an in-house casting director, we suggest sending us your picture and resume for our files. Prior to setting up our audition calls, we look through our files, submissions from breakdown services, the Equity hotline, and occasionally the trades. With the exception of the open EPA calls, auditions for the season are by appointment only with readings from the script(s) we are casting.

Our rehearsal schedule is generally 12 - 8pm Tues - Sun. The producers are open to non-traditional casting, minorities are encouraged to submit themselves for all projects.

We suggest sending your picture and resume, (or a note or postcard if you have previously auditioned for us), mentioning the role(s) you would like to be considered for to:

The Public Theatre
31 Maple Street
Lewiston, Maine 04240

DO NOT E-MAIL YOUR PICTURE AND RESUME UNLESS WE REQUEST IT.

Theater Types:

Equity, Contemporary Plays, Children's Theater

Mission:
The Public Theatre was founded to bring high-quality, professional theater to the people of Central Maine, at an affordable price.

In choosing our season, we look for plays that speak from the heart; that are life-affirming and uplifting even when the subject matter is dark or painful; that use our language in powerful and provocative ways; that invite the audience to see their world in a new way. Artistic excellence is central to the mission of the Public Theatre.
