GENERAL SEASON AUDITIONS

Orlando Repertory Theatre is committed to inclusive and color-conscious casting and strongly encourages all races, ethnicities, gender identities, ages, sizes, as well as performers with disabilities to audition for all productions.

We utilize the Guest Artist Equity Contract.
