Auditions

We are committed to equity, diversity and inclusion in all areas of our work, including the casting of our plays. We seek to hire actors who reflect our world to tell the stories we put onstage, and therefore strongly encourage people of underrepresented groups and diverse backgrounds to audition.

Most casting for Guthrie productions is done locally, although some out-of-town actors are hired for almost every production. The majority of out-of-town casting is arranged through McCorkle Casting (575 8th Avenue, 18th Fl., New York, NY).

Auditions for specific productions are held in Minneapolis and in New York as needed throughout the year. Actors based in the Twin Cities should make a habit of checking Minnesota Playlist for audition notices. Annual general auditions are usually scheduled in the spring. Occasionally, auditions are held in other major cities such as Chicago, Los Angeles and Seattle.

Actors who wish to submit their pictures and resumes should send them to:

No calls, please.

Script submissions

At this time, we do not accept unsolicited scripts from any source, nor request scripts based on reading synopses or sample dialogue.

For information on obtaining literary and theatrical representation, other theaters interested in new plays and script submission procedures, we recommend Dramatists Sourcebook, published bi-annually by Theatre Communications Group. Dramatists Sourcebook is available at local bookstores, online, or directly from TCG Publications at www.tcg.org. The Guthrie's policy as listed may be outdated.
