The annual NETC theater auditions provide a service whereby producers and directors of New England and other theatres from throughout the country meet in a group to audition and interview candidates for positions in summer and year-round professional theatres as performers. For technical positions, you can submit your resume online and it will be presented to all participating theatre companies, you don’t even need to attend!
Because of the nature and demands of summer and professional theatre operation, most producers are interested in experienced, trained candidates for their seasons. The NETC auditions are intended to showcase the best possible talents we can offer to theatre producers; therefore, all performer applications will be screened by a panel of theatre professionals who will select those they feel qualify and merit an audition appointment.
This selection process is intended to improve the standard of these auditions for both the applicant and the producers. Screening and selection will be based on training and experience, and versatility in roles previously played. On student applications, comments and recommendations from directors and instructors are required, and will be an important consideration in the selection process.
ALL NOTIFICATIONS ARE MADE BY EMAIL. Be sure to check your SPAM folder for communications from NETC so you don’t miss any important announcements or notification of your selection. Add auditions@NETConline.org as a contact. NETC is not responsible for missed notifications and deadlines due to not checking your email or submitting an incorrect/dead email address.
When will I find out if I have been selected?
Approximately three weeks before the audition, all performing applicants will be notified by email of the screening results and the date and time of their audition if they have been selected. In addition to those given a time slot, a limited number of stand-bys will be selected. No time slots can be given to stand-bys, but they are guaranteed to audition in their chosen day/session. Stand-bys must check in and sign up at an appointed audition session, and will be accommodated on a first-come, first-served basis as slots open up during that session. Only those applicants who are selected and invited will be allowed to come in on stand-by. Applications of those who are not selected for an audition or stand-by slot will be distributed to the theatres attending the auditions – over 40 nationwide producers. Producers do review these applications and have hired directly from them in the past.
