BWW PREVIEW: 2020 Summer Stages Regional Theatre Opportunities

Jess here. Happy 2020! And just like that, we've turned the page to not only a new year, but to a new decade. Now begins an advanced semester of classes, spring audition prep and... Summer Stage Theatre season announcements!

Many theatrical companies begin their casting process in February, but there are a few who are getting a jump start and are offering casting calls later this month. The following is an extensive list of regional summer stock theatre season offerings for 2020, as well as audition dates and requirements. Some have yet to release their full summer schedules, but will very soon, so you can bookmark the links that interest you.

Most of these are AEA/ECC/EMC but there are a few that fall under the category of paid seasonal community theatre. Those that are AEA affiliates participate in the Equity Membership Candidate Program (EMC) which allows approved summer production work to count towards becoming an Equity member (a minimum of 25 weeks is required). For more information go to: https://actorsequity.org/

Finally, another necessary distinction that may be helpful to know is the difference between EPA vs. ECC auditions/calls. An Equity Principal Audition (EPA) is for lead roles and an Equity Chorus Call (ECC) is for ensemble positions. Depending on the particular production, non-union actors can sometimes audition if time permits.
