We’re always looking for new talent to shine on our stage and seek to include actors of all body sizes, ages, ethnicities, genders, and abilities to audition.
Your time to shine!
Ensemble Theatre does not have a resident actor company and we are always looking for new talent. As a Professional LOA-LORT/Equity Theatre, we predominantly hire actors who are members of Actors’ Equity Association.
We hire non-union actors when possible and in accordance with the union rules. More information about Actors’ Equity can be found at actorsequity.org.
We are committed to equity, diversity, and inclusion in all areas of our work, including on our stage. We seek to hire actors who reflect our world and strongly encourage people of all ages, ethnicities, genders, abilities, and backgrounds to audition. EOE/AA employer.

Currently, there are no upcoming general auditions scheduled aside from Meals 4 Monologues.
