Thank you for your interest in reading with us!
Walking Shadow Readers Theatre is an all-virtual theatre company, so all readings will be done from your home. The technical and scheduling requirements for participating actors are listed below. At this time, all roles are unpaid. Walking Shadow Readers Theatre encourages actors of all ages, genders, races and ethnicities to submit. Current casting opportunities are below, but feel free to submit your headshot and resume for general submission to our files.
Walking Shadow Readers Theatre works with new and established playwrights to develop their projects in a workshop-style setting. Our readings give playwrights a chance to hear their words and characters out loud. The company members then provide playwrights with a 30–45-minute structured feedback session to help with future revisions of the play. The actors participate in the feedback session after the performance.
Please email your resume and headshot to WalkingShadowRT+Resume@gmail.com
