Commitment to EDI in our casting-

  • At American Stage, we see the empty space as an opportunity for social change & civilized discourse to occur --one of the few sacred places left in a far too noisy, often divided, world where human beings can still sit in the quiet dark together, think a while, & be awakened. To gain a richer connection to the fragility of beauty & pain that exists in all art & life.

    Theater of, by, and for all people. Artist-driven, radically inclusive, and fundamentally democratic. Through artistic excellence and the craft of storytelling, American Stage is committed to creating a safe space for multicultural artists to share their full humanity, as we come back to the theatre at this exciting but challenging time. We choose to create a new American Stage that enriches and embodies the rich diversity and cultural tapestry of America and truly reflects the American experience.


  • American Stage is seeking Equity and professional Non-Equity actors for our 2021-2022 Season. All work will be in accordance with our COVID-19 Health and Safety Guidelines. There is payment for all roles, and all roles are available. We are committed to providing opportunities for BIPOC and LGBTQIA+ actors throughout our entire season. BIPOC and LGBTQIA+ actors are strongly encouraged to apply for all shows in our season. American Stage can provide housing to out-of-town actors.
