Ongoing Actor Submissions 

Theatre Ariel is always looking for actors to join our community! In a typical season, we do four salon-style performances (consisting of readings in people houses followed by community discussion). For the foreseeable future we will operate in a hybrid model of live and virtual performances. 

You do not need to be Jewish to be considered as an actor with Theatre Ariel. 

Our casting is open to every actor who wishes to submit, regardless of how you identify in terms of religion, race, ethnicity, ability, gender, sexuality, or otherwise. We are committed to representing the myriad identities that make up the Jewish people.

 

Actors wishing to submit should email the following to casting@theatreariel.org:

  • Brief cover letter introducing yourself and including a link to your website and/or any other relevant media (YouTube videos, reel, video from other shows, podcasts, etc.) 

  • PDF of headshot and resume (please submit as one combined PDF, ideally labeled with your name)

Please forward any questions you may have to the same email address listed above.

Play Submissions

Theatre Ariel is always seeking the next great Jewish play to present to our audiences. Anyone may submit through the process outlined below. Theatre Ariel is looking for plays that engage with the rich world of Jewish life, thought and practice; plays where Judaism, Jewish identity or Jewish perspectives are significant or driving factors in the story (In other words, not plays where the characters ‘happen’ to be Jewish or that have a few yiddishisms or “Jewish jokes” in them, but plays where Jewish life/thought/history is integral or particularly relevant to the story.). Theatre Ariel seeks plays with casts of five actors or less.

You do not have to be Jewish to have your work considered by Theatre Ariel. 

All our performances are presented as salon-style theatre readings in people’s homes, following a long tradition of Jewish theatre. For the foreseeable future, we will be presenting in a hybrid model of both in-person and virtual performances. 

To have your script considered, please email the following to submissions@theatreariel.org

  • Brief cover letter introducing yourself and your play, as well as a short plot summary and character breakdown (indicating doubling, if any)

  • Ten minute excerpt from the script (if these are not the first ten pages, then please supply a brief explanation of where we are in the story when your sample picks up)

Theatre Ariel is committed to reading and responding to every submission we receive. Please allow three to six months for a response. 

Please forward any questions you may have to the same email address listed above.
