 Casting Calls

Welcome to Bay City Player’s Casting Call page. This page reflects our current casting calls and provides the needed information to audition. Auditions are open to the public and newcomers are welcome. Due to COVID-19, Season 104 will be a little different as we will be offering nine shows and there will be no season flex passes. Tickets will go on sale approximately eight weeks prior to show opening. 


Script Checkout
It is not required to checkout a script to audition but more of a preference. Play scripts are available to check-out for auditions. $20 refundable deposit is required and scripts can only be checked out for ten days and must be returned prior to auditions.

Musical materials are not available to checkout for auditions. If cast in a musical, there is a $25 refundable deposit for music materials. The deposit will be collected when materials are handed out.


Bay City Player’s Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Vision Statement:

The theatre has long been a haven for self-expression and restoration of the spirit. However, we recognize there is great inequity in our world. We embrace the opportunity to learn from the worldwide call for allyship with respect to the voices of all marginalized people. We understand that impactful and long-lasting change takes time and a shared commitment. Bay City Players is dedicated to authentic Diversity, Inclusion and Equity across all spectrums and will continue to seek innovative ways to achieve this.


Bay City Player’s Makeup Policy

Bay City Players has implemented a new Makeup Policy for the safety of cast members. Each cast member is asked to purchase their own Ben Nye makeup kit to keep with intent to reduce the spread of germs resulting from sharing makeup. Cast members do not have to purchase a kit if they have a Ben Nye kit from a previous show. The kit cost approximately $17-24 per kit. Kits last approximately two years if taken care of properly and Ben Nye has colors for EVERY skin tone. Should you not be able to cover the cost of your kit, scholarships are available and kept confidential. Scholarships can be requested after casting on the Cast Bio form. The Makeup Chair will meet with cast to help them select the correct kit and Bay City Players will order all the kits. Payment will be collected when the kits are handed out via cash, check, or credit card.
