2019 Audition Information
For the 2019 season, due to the specific requirements of An American in Paris, male and female dancers with extensive ballet training, including women who can dance en pointe, will be particularly welcome.
As always, we are committed to casting performers of all ethnic backgrounds for our resident company, as well as for leading and featured roles throughout our summer season.
In the Heights specifically calls for artists of color, most especially Latino/Latina/Latinx performers for both ensemble and principal roles.

For all non-Equity performers, filling out an audition application is the first step to acquiring an audition time. Auditions fill up very quickly. We encourage you to wait to purchase an airline ticket until you have confirmation of an audition time with us. Unfortunately we will not have time to see everyone who submits.
Information about performing at MTWichita
Music Theatre Wichita works with Actors’ Equity Association under the University/Resident Theatres Association (URTA) contract. Union performers work alongside our resident non-union company members, who may choose to participate in the EMC (Equity Membership Candidate) program.
Base salary is $500 per week for the non-Equity performers ($550 a week for returning alumni), with additional remuneration for principal and supporting roles. MTWichita does not provide housing for non-AEA performers, but a housing stipend is available for out-of-town artists. Good housing is available at a reasonable cost, and within biking or walking distance. Each show rehearses for approximately two weeks prior to its opening night.
We always hope that our productions will reflect the cultural and racial diversity that we celebrate in our country. Performers from all backgrounds are encouraged to audition.
