Tour 72 auditions will be scheduled in multiple cities around the US in January and February, including New York, Boston, Pittsburgh, Philly, Chicago, plus you can find us at UPTA and SETC.  If you can't be seen in person, we can also accept a video submission (though in person is always preferable)!

Requirements for an audition are two contrasting monologues, at least one must be Shakespeare and if the other is not Shakespeare it should be from the classic cannon (anything from Williams to Wilson to Miller to Vogel, but something that shows your work with text). If you're in person, we'll likely ask you some questions about why you're interested in the tour. If you're submitting a video, please include a section of you talking about why you'd like to be a National Player. 

Will be updated as the audition season begins.

Please send Headshot and Resume to to submit for an audition appointment. 

Check out the videos below from Associate Artistic Director and Casting Director Jenna Duncan, and Senior Associate Artistic Director and Artistic Director of National Players, Jason King Jones for more information about the National Players. If you have further questions or would like to submit a video audition, please email
