Auditions

The MAC offers a variety of plays with an array of challenging roles suitable for a wide demographic.

All casting is done through open auditions supervised by the play’s director. Audition times and dates are posted in advance on the website as well as on other area theater call boards and forums.  

Rehearsals usually run two to three hours, three days a week during non-business hours for six or seven weeks, depending on the coordination between the director and the cast. Participation in set and prop construction is encouraged but subject to an individual’s schedule and abilities. Performers are unpaid and all roles are non-Equity. 

The MAC Theater celebrates diversity and seeks people of all backgrounds regardless of age, race, creed, or national origin. All are welcome!

Please email [email protected] to receive email announcements whenever auditions are scheduled. The MAC Theater does not sell or provide email lists to any third parties.
