Dallas Theater Center maintains a resident acting company. When casting productions, DTC looks first to the Diane and Hal Brierley Resident Acting Company to fill roles. DTC also maintains a relationship with Meadows School of the Arts at SMU and Booker T. Washington High School for the Visual and Performing Arts. As part of this relationship DTC often casts students from these programs in mainstage productions. Additionally, DTC casts actors from the region and nationally for a variety of roles. Auditions for these roles occur on an as-needed basis throughout the year.
Dallas Theater Center works under the League of Regional Theatres (LORT) contract with Actors Equity Association (AEA), the union of actors and stage managers. The union determines the number of Equity and non-Equity actors cast in each production. Local equity and non-equity auditions are scheduled once per year. These usually take place in the late spring. Information about local generals will be posted on our website and on the Actors' Equity website as well as through our local media prior to auditions.
Dallas auditions are announced on our website and through the local media. General auditions are held every Spring for the following season.
Additional auditions are held in New York, in conjunction with New York-based casting directors. These auditions are generally by agent submission only.
Local children’s auditions are held in the early fall and on a show-by-show basis. Information about local generals will be posted on our site as well as through our local media prior to auditions.
Actors should submit updated headshots and résumés to:

We regret that we are unable to keep or return unsolicited headshots and resumes of actors that we have not seen in audition or performance.
