Casting Actors and Meeting Artists

Casting is a key part of the artistic process of creating each production. We seek to cast the most interesting and exciting performer for each role.

We actively look to work with native Scottish artists and artists based in Scotland where possible, supporting Equity’s #CastItHere campaign. We also seek to promote artists from diverse backgrounds and cultures. We are interested in reflecting and expanding the world we live in upon our stages, and fundamental to this desire is finding artists who embody that world in all its aspects. Reflecting diversity sits in conversation with our desire to cast locally.

If you are a local professional actor or artist from Perthshire, Angus or Fife we would love to hear from you. Please get in touch, and if possible we will offer you a meeting or audition.

Auditions

Our shows are cast by the director of each production, with the support of our Artistic Director and General Manager.

We will hold two full days of open auditions per year, run by the Artistic Director for actors who have not previously worked with us at Perth Theatre. Actors from our local geographic area will be given priority in scheduling these meetings. If you wish to be considered for a general meeting please email us on the address below.

In addition, the Artistic Director arranges bespoke audition days with graduate years in drama training courses and actors’ agencies. We welcome enquiries from agencies and course leaders to arrange this.

Seeing Your Work

The Artistic Director, Associate Director Learning and Engagement, and CEO regularly attend shows throughout Scotland and the rest of the UK in order to see and meet performers and have an in-depth knowledge of the industry. We are happy to attend drama college showcases as well as productions. To let us know about a show you will be performing in, please use the contact details below.
