General Casting Advice

Professional actors should submit their details based on Casting Breakdowns produced for each individual show.  The New Vic does not keep CV’s on file.  Once shortlisted, our creative team will hold show-specific auditions remotely, at the theatre and in London, by appointment only.  The New Vic does not hold general casting sessions.
