Season Auditions

As the Commonweal is an ensemble of resident artists, we do not hold season auditions in the manner of other producing theatres. We often attend the UPTAs and if you are attending, reach out, and we’ll keep an eye out for you. We also maintain a database of headshots and resumes for future reference as outside casting needs arise. For consideration, please email a current picture and resume to

Production/Design Staff

Please email a letter of inquiry, current resume and three references to:
