Be seen. be heard. be true.

Each summer over ten weeks, The Muny produces seven full-scale musicals at the oldest and largest outdoor musical theatre in the world. Each winter, we hold open auditions for the best and brightest performers from across the country.

Below we have provided the basic dates of the specific calls. All in-person auditions will be held by appointment only and registering for an audition slot will remain a priority.

The upcoming audition season will see the return of live, in-person local and out of town calls for 18+ auditionees. Yes, our famous Muny audition weekend (February 4 & 5) is back after three years! By choosing to hold in-person auditions, we will adhere to all the appropriate COVID-19 safety protocols and requirements set forth by the Actors’ Equity Association.

COVID-19 Vaccination Policy

In an effort to provide the safest possible workplace, The Muny requires that all backstage employees be fully vaccinated including the CDC recommended booster when eligible. The CDC currently defines “fully vaccinated” as those who have received two doses of the Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna shots or one dose of the Johnson and Johnson shot. Fully vaccinated individuals who received the Pfizer-BioNtech or Moderna shots are eligible for the booster shot five months from their last dose, and individuals who received the Johnson and Johnson shot are eligible two months from their last dose. The Muny will require the booster for eligible employees no later than 2 weeks before the start of employment or within 10 days of eligibility for those who become eligible during their employment.

As we continually are working with local and national health officials, as well all the unions and guilds, we reserve the right to update and alter the above language.
