Greater Philadelphia Annual Auditions
The Walnut Street Theatre is excited to host the continuation of the TAGP audition program. Each year, participating theatres across the Delaware Valley join together at an audition day for local actors. This program gives actors the opportunity to be seen by multiple theatre professionals at once. These auditions are instrumental in helping the region's theatres both to discover local actors and to cast their shows for the upcoming season.
The Greater Philadelphia Annual Auditions are split into three dates. All auditions dates are Mondays, which will optimize industry turnout and will be held on the Walnut Street Theatre's historic Mainstage.
