The Gamm Theatre Announces Auditions 

for Season 37 (2021-2022)

 

The Sandra Feinstein-Gamm Theatre (The Gamm) is casting its 37th season and is accepting video submissions for Equity Principal Audtions. The first round of casting will not include an in-person audition. Call back dates are TBD and will be conducted via digital platform and/or in person as public health/professional safety protocols evolve. The Gamm is asking all eligible performers who wish to be considered for roles in next season’s productions to send their recorded audition pieces along with a headshot/resume through email by midnight June 25, 2021 to gammauditions@gammtheatre.org.  

 

The Gamm encourages participation by performers of all races, ethnicities and genders.

As with in-person auditions, each performer will be allotted a minimum of 3 minutes and a maximum of 5 minutes. We suggest that all performers prepare at least a 1-2 minute monologue of their choice. If you want to be considered for A Midsummer Night’s Dream, we encourage you to include a monologue from Shakespeare, preferably in blank verse.
