To Audition for any listed GAC Production

Please see the individual show listing for specific information, but feel free to print and fill out our audition form in advance to bring to your audition. (Copies will be available at auditions as well. Productions may also use different audition forms from what we’ve linked here.) All productions are required to follow the GAC audition policy below. If you feel that there has been an issue or violation of this policy, please contact VP of Programs to address the situation.

Casting and Audition Policy

As part of our ongoing effort to be an inclusive and welcoming space, the Greenbelt Arts Center requires that all productions follow our audition and casting policy, which can be found in full here.  Production teams are not to limit casting choices unless a script specifies that an actor portraying that character must fit a specific demographic (ex. August Wilson’s plays, Lynn Nottage’s Sweat, the musical Hairspray.)

GAC will work with actors to accommodate needs within our capabilities as a non-profit organization, and is always open to suggestions about how we can improve the experience for all volunteers.
