How to Submit

Please, no snailmail submissions and no phone calls.


Harlequin operates on a Transitional Small Professional Theatre contract with the Actors’ Equity Association. Generally, contracts will be Tier II ($312/wk). We are contracted to hire one union actor per production, although we may occasionally use more. This is set to expand in coming seasons.


Harlequin currently pays a base rate of $150/wk for all non-AEA actors. There are additional carpool stipends and housing opportunities for actors from out of town. We generally rehearse a portion of each production in Seattle.

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.
