Casting

The majority of Trinity Rep roles are cast from our resident acting company and the students in the Brown/Trinity MFA program. If a production calls for addition casting, audition notices will be posted here. We also hold open auditions once a year, usually in the summer, for both union and non-union actors. There are no auditions to join the acting company.

Script Submissions

Trinity Rep is committed to the development and production of new theater works. As part of that commitment, we seek to include at least one world premiere production in each season, and work throughout the year to develop new plays through readings and workshops. Our Mabel T. Woolley Literary Department reads and reviews hundreds of scripts, looking for new plays which support our aesthetic vision and our resident acting company.

To submit a play, please have your agent contact us at the address listed below. At this time, unsolicited scripts from playwrights without representation cannot be accepted.
