Berkeley Rep is a LORT B Theatre and hires actors who are members of Actors’ Equity Association. Occasionally local non-union actors are hired in large cast shows in supporting roles or as extras. Our understudy casts are drawn from the local non-union acting pool. Actors are hired on a show-by-show basis during the season and auditions for individual shows are by invitation only. Berkeley Rep holds open auditions annually in the late spring. These auditions are announced on the AEA hotline and the Theatre Bay Area hotline and magazine. Berkeley Rep also attends the Theatre Bay Area general auditions, which are usually held in January/February. Out-of-town Equity actors who may be visiting the Bay Area can be seen on the third Monday of every month. If you are a member of Actors’ Equity Association and plan to be in the Bay area and would like to schedule an audition please send your photo and resume with a cover letter to Amy Potozkin, c/o Berkeley Repertory Theatre, 999 Harrison Street, Berkeley, CA 94710.
Berkeley Rep held general auditions for local actors on May 13 and 20, 2013. Please check back for information about next year’s general auditions. Reminder: we also attend the Theatre Bay Area auditions, usually held in late January/early February.
