Frequently Asked Questions
Do you accept submissions on a rolling basis?
Due to volume, we cannot accept nor review submissions outside of the posted auditions.
When will you be holding auditions next?
Typically, season EPAs are scheduled in the Spring preceding the season.
I am out of town during your auditions. Do you accept video submissions?
In the event that you cannot attend an in-person audition, a video submission is acceptable. Please adhere to the guidelines provided in the posting regarding audition requirements. Please send your video submission to the email provided in the posting. Video submissions are best sent as one video via a private or password protected YouTube, Vimeo (or similar) link.

Will you be seeing non-Equity performers at your auditions?
Non-Equity performers may be seen in both Cambridge and New York when space permits. For Cambridge EPAs, non-Equity performers should send an email to the address outlined in the posting requesting an audition slot. If space is available, you will be contacted prior to the audition to be scheduled for a slot (generally within forty-eight hours of the audition date). For New York EPAs, non-Equity performers should show up to the posted audition and will be signed up for a slot if space is available. Please do not email in advance.

The A.R.T. welcomes you to be a part of an exciting theater community! Volunteer Ushers get a glimpse behind the scenes and work closely with the Front of House departments. Under the supervision of the House Manager and working with the Front of House Staff, volunteers are assigned duties that might include distributing programs, providing information about the show, scanning patrons’ tickets at the door, light cleanup after the performance, and completing other tasks during and after the show. Volunteers should arrive ready to go and be dressed in all black attire; no jeans, T-shirts, or sneakers (think business casual). Arrival time is normally 90 minutes before the performance but this may vary depending on the production.
Volunteer Ushers will be able to see the performance free of charge but may have to join Standing Room Only if the show is sold out. Volunteer Ushering is only available for shows at the Loeb Drama Center.
We look forward to seeing you at the American Repertory Theater.
