GENERAL AUDITION ROLE AND SHOW INFORMATION
Except for children, all performers must be 18 years of age (by August 30th of current year) to be considered for casting. If you will be 18 years of age by August 30th but will be under 18 at the time of the audition, you will need to have your parent or guardian sign the standard audition release form, which will be given out at the audition. If your parent or guardian will not be accompanying you at the audition, you will need to download this release form, have it signed by your parent or guardian, notarized by a notary public and bring it with you to the audition. MSGE is committed to ethnically-diverse casting for all roles. You must be a US citizen or have a current legal permit which allows you to work in the US to be considered for casting.
Contract dates range from early October/early November to late December/early January, depending on which show you are cast in.
Travel and Housing are provided for all performers in shows performing outside New York City. No travel or housing is provided for the performers of the show in New York. Tutoring is provided for all children. If cast in the show, performers will be offered an American Guild of Variety Artists (AGVA) contract with competitive salaries and benefits.
