General Auditions

The pandemic has had an effect on our ability to audition actors. Previously, we attended the TPS (Theatre Puget Sound) general auditions each year, and hope to do so again when they restart. In addition, we have hold annual general auditions for our upcoming season in the late summer or early fall. Please watch this site for our next general auditions date (for the 2024 season) and submission instructions.

Harlequin operates on a Transitional Small Professional Theatre contract with the Actors’ Equity Association. Our 2023 contracts will be Tier II.


Harlequin currently pays a base rate of 50% of AEA scale for all non-AEA actors. There are additional carpool stipends and housing opportunities for actors from out of town.

Harlequin is committed to equity, diversity, and inclusion in our casting and in all areas of our work. We seek to tell stories that represent our world, and therefore strongly encourage actors of underrepresented groups to audition.
