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.
Yale Rep will not produce a season of plays in 2020–21.
Yale Repertory Theatre accepts submissions of full-length plays, musicals, translations, and adaptations. All submissions are considered for productions at Yale Rep and for development opportunities with the Binger Center for New Theatre. Due to the pandemic, Yale Rep will not be producing plays in the 2020-21 season. We expect much, if not all, of the literary office’s work to be remote during the upcoming season. 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.
At this time, Yale Rep accepts only electronic submissions, as we have limited access to our buildings. You may send files (as either .doc, .docx, or .pdf) to firstname.lastname@example.org.
