Casting at Yale Rep
Yale Repertory Theatre works under the League of Regional Theatres (LORT) contract with Actors’ Equity Association (AEA), the union of professional actors and stage managers. The union determines the number of Equity and non-Equity actors cast in each production.

Yale Rep is committed to an inclusive casting policy and encourages all actors to audition regardless of an individual’s sex, race, color, religion, age, disability, status as a veteran, national or ethnic origin, sexual orientation, or gender identity or expression.
We welcome accessibility requests to accommodate auditions by actors with disabilities.
Equity Principal Auditions (EPAs) are held every spring in New York and New Haven following the season announcement and are announced here, on this website, and distributed through the AEA Call Notice with a character breakdown for new plays. For the 2023-2024 season, a Seasonal EPA was held locally in New Haven on Wednesday, May 31, 2023 and in NYC on May 31 & June 1, 2023.
Yale Repertory Theatre accepts submissions of full-length plays, musicals, translations, and adaptations. All scripts are considered for productions at Yale Rep and playwrights of those scripts for development opportunities with the Binger Center for New Theatre. We are currently reading for our 24-25 season and beyond. Playwrights must submit their work either through established agents or by first sending a letter of inquiry, accompanied by a brief synopsis, cast breakdown, a 10-page dialogue sample, and a résumé. The Literary Office will review these materials and contact playwrights regarding Yale Rep’s interest in reading a full manuscript. Submissions are accepted year-round. Unsolicited manuscripts will not be reviewed.
Yale Rep prefers electronic submissions: You may send files (as either .doc, .docx, or .pdf) to firstname.lastname@example.org. If you wish to submit via USPS, please send to the following address: Yale Rep Literary Office, c/o Yale Repertory Theatre, PO Box 208244, New Haven, CT, 06520-8244. Hardcopy manuscripts will not be returned.
