For Actors

Auditions for our mainstage season are held throughout the year by appointment.
 
Theatre Exile operates under a Small Professional Theatre agreement with Actors' Equity Association, and in accordance with that agreement, we hold multiple open call auditions each season. We also attend the Greater Philadelphia Annual Auditions every spring.
