For Artists

The Auckland Theatre Company season features a mix of new plays by New Zealand playwrights, new international works, classic plays, and new adaptations of classic plays. Our programming balances the adventurous and the populist, new talent and leading practitioners, and comedy and tragedy.

Although the artists who create work for our annual season are typically highly experienced, we are also committed to supporting the professional development of emerging artists. If you are an emerging artist who wishes to be considered for opportunities at Auckland Theatre Company, please invite us to see your work. 

If you wish to invite an Auckland Theatre Company representative to see your show, please email an invitation to Artistic Director & CEO, Jonathan Bielski at [email protected] with the subject title INVITATION TO: [your show title]. 

We recommend sending an initial invitation well in advance of your show opening. We are a small team and appreciate getting as much notice as possible to attend your event.


We employ the best of New Zealand's acting talent - professional and experienced actors as well as recent graduates from drama schools. 

Auditions for the annual season of plays are by invitation only. Actors are contacted through the artist's agent or directly if the artist is self-represented.  

If you are a professional actor who is new to Tāmaki Makaurau (or Aotearoa) please feel free to ask your agent to send your CV and a recent headshot for consideration. 

If you are new to acting and would like more information about training, please contact us to discuss your options.
