Best Practices & Policies

SEXUALITY IN AUDITIONS: BEST PRACTICES

CART has created a best practices document with suggestions on how theatres and performers can better navigate questions of intimacy and sexuality in audition settings. Greater consideration and clearer communication on these topics will ultimately lead to stronger work from auditioners, and a more fruitful casting process for theatre companies. 

This document will be piloted and refined during the 2017-18 season. If you want to share feedback on this policy, a recent audition experience or another issue you'd like to see addressed, please feel free to use our contact form (which allows anonymous submissions).
