Auditions for the 2017 season will be held in February and March. Audition dates are as follows:
- February 21-23 (Ann Arbor)
- February 25-26 (Chicago)
- March 3-5 (Wichita)
- March 10-12 (Oklahoma City)
- March 15-20 (New York City)
The application for auditions will be available around January 2, 2017. For all non-Equity performers, filling out an audition application is the first step to acquiring an audition time. Auditions fill up very quickly.
Music Theatre Wichita works with Actors’ Equity Association under the University/Resident Theatres Association (URTA) contract. Union performers work alongside our resident non-union company members, who may choose to participate in the EMC (Equity Membership Candidate) program.
Base salary is $400 per week for the non-Equity performers ($450 a week for returning alumni), with additional remuneration for principal and supporting roles. MTWichita does not provide housing for non-AEA performers, but a housing stipend is available for out-of-town artists. Good housing is available at a reasonable cost, and within biking or walking distance. Each show rehearses for approximately two weeks prior to its opening night.
We always hope that our productions will reflect the cultural and racial diversity that we celebrate in our country. Performers from all backgrounds are encouraged to audition.
If you have any questions about auditions, please email Nancy Reeves.
