Theatre West Cancels Local Auditions; Video Submissions Accepted Instead

Theatre West is cancelling in-person local auditions which were to be held on March 21. Applicants for the 2020 Summer Season are being asked to instead submit a video by midnight on March 28.

If an applicant has been in a Theatre West production within the previous three years, they may simply ask to be considered, and submit an audition form. Deadline for consideration is midnight on Saturday, March 28.

Forms and information are available at Theatre West’s new website:
