For Actors


At STC each show is uniquely cast through collaboration between the Director, STC’s Casting Director and STC’s Artistic Director.


If we are looking to cast roles in a particular show, the Casting Department will send a brief to agents, Showcast and Casting Networks. From these submissions, actors will be invited to audition for a particular role or roles and be given specific scenes to prepare. Not every show in our season will have an open audition call. 


General Auditions are held every 12 to 18 months. General auditions are an open process where we see as many new actors as possible. These are only open to Sydney based actors and are specifically used to see working actors in the industry that we do not know or have never been seen by STC.

If you wish to be considered for a general audition, please send an email to [email protected] with the words General Audition and your name in the subject line. Please include your Acting CV and headshot in the body of the email. Due to the volume of submissions we receive, your application does not guarantee an audition, however, we strive to see as many actors as possible: usually over 120 in each round of auditions. STC promotes an artistic environment that actively seeks to include, welcome and value contributions of all people. We encourage all actors from cultural and linguistically diverse backgrounds, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander, mature age artists, lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, intersex, queer, (LGBTQIA+) non-binary and artist living with disability to apply. 

We are constantly seeing independent theatre and searching for new talent. If you want to invite us to see show please follow these instructions.
