MISSION, VISION, AND VALUES
Dallas Theater Center will engage, entertain, and inspire our diverse community by creating experiences that stimulate new ways of thinking and living. We will do this by consistently producing plays, educational programs, and other initiatives that are of the highest quality and reach the broadest possible constituency.
Dallas Theater Center strongly believes that an effective workforce includes employees from different and diverse backgrounds and experiences that together form a more creative, innovative, and productive environment. As a leading national theater, DTC recognizes that building an equitable, diverse and inclusive environment is the key ingredient to its relevance and sustainability in the community it serves.
DIVERSITY is acknowledging and respecting human qualities that are different from our own and outside the groups we are a part of or associated with, yet are present in other individuals and groups. These qualities include but are not limited to: ethnicity, race, color, country of origin, sex, gender, age, sexual orientation, marital status, religion, beliefs, political affiliations, socioeconomic status, experiences and any form of disability.
An INCLUSIVE work environment is one where all employees are engaged and supported by the leadership of the institution, beginning at the highest level. Dallas Theater Center strives to create a culture of inclusion where employees of diverse human qualities can thrive and succeed and are able to participate in, and contribute to, the progress and success of the institution, while growing both professionally and personally.

Dallas Theater Center is a LORT (League of Resident Theaters) regional theater. Our contracts are LORT B, C, and D. Dallas Theater Center functions under the rules set forth by Actors Equity Association governing LORT theaters.
We welcome Union (AEA) and Non Union actors. AEA members are given priority for audition appointments.
Dallas Theater Center maintains a resident acting company. When casting productions,we look first to the Diane and Hal Brierley Resident Acting Company to fill roles. We also maintain a relationship with Meadows School of the Arts at SMU and Booker T. Washington High School for the Visual and Performing Arts. As part of these relationships we often cast students from these programs in mainstage productions. Additionally, we cast actors from the region and nationally for a variety of roles. Auditions for these roles occur on an as-needed basis throughout the year.
Dallas Theater Center works under the League of Regional Theatres (LORT) contract with Actors Equity Association (AEA), the union of actors and stage managers. The union determines the number of Equity and non-Equity actors cast in each production. Local equity and non-equity general auditions for the upcoming season are scheduled once per year, usually in late spring. Information about local generals will be posted on our website and on the Actors’ Equity website as well as through our local media.
Additional auditions are held in New York, in conjunction with New York-based casting directors. These auditions are generally by agent submission only.
Local children’s auditions are held on a show-by-show basis. Information about local children’s generals will be posted on our site as well as through our local media prior to auditions.
