Local auditions will be held on Monday, February 13th from 4-6pm at The Huron Public Library (333 Williams St., Huron, OH). These local auditions are not for consideration for the Acting Company, but are for residents of the region only please. We are seeking to fill four roles in our summer production of 12 ANGRY JURORS with local actors.   Those auditioning are requested to please prepare a less than one-minute dramatic contemporary monologue and to bring your head-shot and resume with you to your audition.   Rehearsals for 12 ANGRY JURORS begin on Sunday, June 18th.   Please email artisticdirector@huronplayhouse.com to schedule an audition appointment.

COMPENSATION: Acting Company members receive competitive pay in addition to free room and board.

Artists of all races and ethnicities are encouraged to audition. Apologies, but there are no roles for actors under the age of 18 in this year’s season.

As a professional summer stock theatre, The Huron Playhouse hires only non-equity actors at this time. Acting Company members are expected to work in designated design area shops during the work day if not called for rehearsal.

The Huron Playhouse is committed to fair and unbiased casting procedures. Casting of actors in roles is done on the basis of acting skill and ability demonstrated during the audition process, as well as on the actor’s appropriateness and suitability (physical, vocal, mental, emotional) for available roles, except in cases where age, race, or physical ability are essential to the role.

We may begin making offers on a rolling basis, but casting and hiring will continue until all roles and positions are filled. Typically, we are done with most of our hiring by mid to late March.  We typically audition and interview over 2,000 people, so it is impossible to contact everyone as to whether they have been hired or not.  We are only able to contact people we are interested in hiring, but we encourage everyone to apply in future seasons.

For any questions regarding casting and hiring contact Nick Hrutkay, Artistic Director at: artisticdirector@huronplayhouse.com. No phone calls please.

The Huron Playhouse is an equal opportunity employer.
