About auditioning for Silverthorne
While we do hire some Equity actors for our productions, we do so only on a Special Appearance contract basis.
Actors aspiring to Equity membership should know that working with us will not contribute in any way to their gaining Equity points.
We are not prepared to house actors who do not have living arrangements at least for the run of rehearsals and performances, and the stipend offered ill not cover housing costs. For this reason we are very unlikely to consider casting actors from outside the region.
If you are unable to attend an audition but still would like to be considered for a role, we encourage you to submit a video or to arrange for a live online audition via Skype or Facetime.
