NETC Application and Audition Overview


Virtual Applications are NOW OPEN!

Audition Registration

Technical Registration

NETC would like to announce that in 2021 we are holding our annual theatre auditions virtually. Auditions are open to college students and adults, 18 and older. With this new format, we anticipate that many casting agents and directors will participate in the event, offering both summer and year-round employment to performing actors, musical theatre performers, and theatre technicians, as well as Equity Membership Candidacy Programs. An average of 30 companies are represented at these auditions annually, including summer and year-round theatres (Equity and non-Equity), college-based summer theatres, repertory companies, Shakespearian and Renaissance Festivals, outdoor dramas and faires, music theatres, touring companies, children's theatres, and dinner theatres, whose seasons include the classics, dramas, musicals, comedies, and revues. Casting companies and professional theatre training companies and conservatories are also represented.


All applicants will require a video to be uploaded. The application deadline is January 15, 2021.  This year, producers will have the opportunity to view ALL the applications as the selection process has been eliminated.  This is a great year to apply because resumes and videos will be seen by a lot of producers and directors and they will be available online for up to one year.


Also, applicants are allowed to submit both a musical theatre application, as well as, an acting application should they desire.  The fees this year are as follows: one application will cost $50 and it includes a one year NETC membership or two applications at a cost of $75, which once again includes a one year membership to NETC.  We will also be accepting technical theatre applications for a fee of $20.  Technical entries need to fill out the application that is found on our website, along with a resume.  No video is required.


New this year, all applicants will have the opportunity to have their video auditions reviewed by theatre professionals, which will be announced in the near future, for an additional fee of $20. They will then be able to resubmit their videos with edits based on notes.  These will be placed in a featured section on our website which producers will be able to peruse.
