All In Productions Announces Non-Equity Diversity General Auditions
Held In Person and Virtually to Accommodate a Growing Number of Interested Theaters
MILWAUKEE, Wis. — All In Productions is facilitating non-equity Diversity General Auditions to take place February 21, noon to 7pm, at Next Act Theater.
General auditions serve an important role in the theater industry, by providing actors the opportunity to be seen by multiple theaters simultaneously, and is often how new actors receive their first roles. Last year, 32 theaters from Wisconsin and Chicago attended.
“We’ve been grateful for the positive response we’ve gotten, not just locally but from theaters outside of Wisconsin too,” says Alex Schuerell, All In Productions’ Executive Director and Co-Founder. “Auditioning actors have told us they really think this has made a difference in the number of callbacks they’ve gotten. It’s wonderful to know it’s working as intended - to help talented, diverse actors get more work.”
The purpose of Diversity Generals is to provide opportunities to specific demographics that are underrepresented in the industry. These auditions are open to people of various ethnic backgrounds, gender identities, and physical, intellectual, and cognitive abilities. Resources that range from free headshots to monologue workshops are available to the actors at no charge to increase the accessibility of the auditions.
