Goodman Theatre does not have a resident or repertory company of actors and is always looking for new talent for our stages. While auditions for specific productions throughout the season are by invitation only, the Goodman holds general auditions each year.
Equity Actors (members of Actors' Equity Association)
Equity Auditions are held each spring in Chicago. Once Equity general audition dates are announced, you can either make an appointment in person at the Equity office or call the Chicago Equity audition hotline. Please take note that the Goodman does not schedule appointments; all appointments are scheduled though the Equity office.
Non-Equity Actors (non-members of Actors' Equity Association)
Submissions are accepted on a rolling basis. If we are interested in seeing your work at a general audition, we will contact you directly. Non-Equity general auditions are typically held four times a year, and we usually receive more submissions than we have slots for; if it happens that you are not among the few selected, we encourage you to submit again in six months.
HOW TO SUBMIT: Please submit electronic headshot, resumé and information requested via the form at the bottom of this page. No phone calls, please.
Submissions for a Particular Production
In Town Actors
If you are interested in a particular production please do let us know by submitting your headshot, resumé and information requested via the form at the bottom of this page. Please specify the show and role you're interested in, in the proper section.
Out of Town Actors
The need for actors outside the Chicago area depends specifically upon the demands of each individual production. While auditions held outside the Chicago area are also by invitation only, if you are an Actors' Equity member please specify the show and role you're interested in, and submit your headshot, resumé and information requested via the form at the bottom of this page.
If you are unable to fill out the form for any reason, please send hard copy headshot and resumé to the address below along with a letter of interest.
