Broadway News: Actors’ Equity will reinstate mandates for in-person auditions

As of Jan. 2, 2023, Actors’ Equity Association will stipulate that all required Equity Auditions will be held in person. 

Equity had adjusted the audition policy during the COVID-19 shutdown and gradual reopening to allow employers to accept video submissions for the Equity auditions required in the terms of their Collective Bargaining Agreements. Beginning in the new year, employers may still opt to accept video submissions in addition to in-person auditions, but video will not fulfill their contractual audition requirements.
