Auditions

Ordway Original productions regularly feature a combination of great local talent and artists from across the country.

Information about auditions is also available on the Ordway Audition Hotline at 651.282.3078.

The Ordway is committed to diversity and engages in a policy of equal employment opportunity designed to promote a positive model of inclusion. Performers of all racial and ethnic backgrounds, gender identities, sexual orientations, ages, and performers with disabilities are encouraged to audition.

When casting shows we produce as part of the Broadway @ the Ordway series, we seek to identify artists who are matched in experience and ability and who can embody and execute the role as envisioned by the creative team.

We strive to identify and address the inequitable systems and processes that have led to the exclusion of and harm to Black, Indigenous, Native American, Hispanic, Latino/a/e/x, MENA (Middle Eastern, North African), Asian, Pacific Islander, disabled, LGBTQIA+ people, other under-represented groups, and especially those who are at the intersections of these identities.

Throughout the casting process, we are committed to and will engage in, open-ended discussions about the conscious and unconscious impact that race and power have on artists and audiences. We aim to uphold intentional, color-conscious, as well as identity-conscious and culture-conscious casting practices and decision-making. Continuous learning, sustained hard work, personal and professional reflection, and accountability will be required for us to successfully maintain these commitments.

Drafted in March 2022, this statement is intended to invite continuing conversation with stakeholders and it may be revised as further learning occurs.
