  • Auditions may be recorded. Attendance or non-attendance of these auditions does not restrict future opportunities with ISTC.

  • Actors who wish to read together will be permitted to do so, but may also be asked to read with others, including the audition reader.

  • Except as noted, all roles are open to all ethnicities, and LGBTQ actors and actors of diverse backgrounds are encouraged to attend.
