HEADSHOT & RESUME SUBMISSION INSTRUCTIONS

  • Name your PDF as follows: Last Name, First Name H&R
  • Email your headshot & resume to casting@arenastage.org

We review every headshot and resume that we receive, and we contact actors individually to schedule auditions based on their experience and training. Please feel free to invite us to any performances you may have in the area as well. We'd love to see your work on stage.

Script Submissions

Arena Stage does not accept unsolicited script submissions. Instead, projects come to our attention through agents, our national scouting process, and our pipeline of new work through our commissioning and development initiatives.
