About Auditions at the Alley
The Alley Theatre maintains a Company of Actors. When casting productions, the Alley looks first to its Acting Company to fill key roles and auditions on an as-needed basis. We announce auditions on our website as well as through the local media.
The Alley casting calls in New York City are organized by our Casting Director.
Local auditions are scheduled once per year.
The Alley Theatre is an equal opportunity employer of actors with diverse cultural backgrounds and abilities. The Alley maintains a database of actors seen in auditions or in performances during the past two years. We regret that we are unable to keep or return unsolicited headshots and resumes of actors that we have not seen in audition or in performance.
