“The producers are proponents of non-traditional casting. Minorities are encouraged to audition and to send pictures/resumes.”
As a live, interactive, embodied art form, theater has the potential to catalyze difficult conversations, to ask important questions about cultural representation, and to provide a site for interrogating power dynamics and centering marginalized voices. With this knowledge in mind, the Gilbert continues to actively explore ways to engage with our diverse community in regards to the representation of culture, race, ethnicity, socio-economic class, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, and disability on and off stage.
We create more opportunities for actors and other artists who have been historically underrepresented on and off the stage.
Regarding Working at the Gilbert
The Gilbert Theater is a semi-professional, community minded which offers paid positions to professional and semi-professional actors in leading or specialty roles and volunteer opportunities.
The theater is unable to compensate actors at a level which recognizes the value of their talent, training, or time in the way a fully professional company might. Compensation ranges from a basic Equity contract to Guest Artist to a simple gas stipend. Housing for out of town guests is available. Equity actors are often brought in one to two weeks before tech and are expected to be able to step into a role with very limited rehearsal time. Contract terms are negotiated individually.
Anyone interested in working backstage or on the crew should inquire on the volunteer page.
***The Gilbert Theater has a noted history of cross-gender and non-traditional casting practices. Performers of all ethnic and racial backgrounds are strongly encouraged to attend.
The Gilbert Theater hires Equity members on a show by show basis. If you are Equity and wish to audition please call in advance to inquire at (910) 678-7186.
If you cannot make auditions for a particular production, please feel free to contact us, or send us your resume and headshot to email@example.com or via snail mail.
