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 formally adventurous and the populist, new talent and leading practitioners, and comedy and tragedy.

The Artistic Director programmes the season in collaboration with a team that includes three Artistic Associates.

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. 

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 [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 accredited drama schools. 

Auditions for the main stage plays in our season 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 Auckland (or New Zealand) please feel free to send your CV and a recent headshot for consideration, or send your agent's details. 

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