Red Stitch is an ensemble of actors, but we love working with other artists, and we do this every production.  We hold auditions for specific roles that need to be filled for each show.  We source actors for these auditions through Showcast.

We also hold general auditions every few years.  The next generals will be in 2018. We are not taking submission at the moment, but feel free to send your information to and it will be kept on file. If a role comes up that you are appropriate for, you will be contacted at that point.
