General Information

Casting for each BNT production is done by a combination of invitation and audition.

Auditions are advertised in advance by email and social media with individual appointments made.

We also have occasional opportunities for actors such as play-reading sessions with playwrights and reading plays for fun. These are also shared via our mailing list.
