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 (with our first show likely to begin rehearsal around June 5).
Audition applications are available around January 1. Those wishing to audition for the resident company are encouraged to get this application in early, as several cities fill up quickly.
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.
