Theatreworks Colorado Springs, an AEA SPT theatre, has closed our submission period for the 2023-2024 season.
We held two days of general auditions, as well as attending the DCPA non-Equity auditions, and the CTG Unified auditions. As of late August 2023, we have all but two adult roles in our six Mainstage productions, as well as our Free-For-All community/school tour. Please look for information about our 2024-2025 season generals in March 2024.

Practical Season Details
For Mainstage productions, we will produce five shows at the SPT-4 level with 30 hours of rehearsal per week (34 hours for stage managers); as well as one concert musical at the SPT-2 level. The SPT rates for 2023-2024 have not yet been released but actors will earn slightly above projected SPT-4 minimum at $500 per week for Equity actors and $580 per week for Equity stage managers for our SPT-4 productions. We are projecting a weekly salary of $375 for our SPT-2 production.
Non-equity actors working on our six subscription series productions will receive 80% of Equity actor compensation: $400 per week for SPT-5 and $300 per week for SPT-2.
For out-of-town artists, transportation to and housing in Colorado Springs is provided. For Denver-based artists, limited housing or a gas stipend is available.
For our Free-For-All school and community tour, the rehearsal week is 20 hours. Non-Equity actors are paid a weekly stipend of $250 per 20 hour rehearsal week. During performances, the per performance stipend Free-For-All is $65. Individuals must be resident in the Front Range during the rehearsal and performance period.
Please note that all subscription productions may have one to three potential student matinee performances and only submit yourself for consideration if your schedule will offer the flexibility for you participating in select performances during school hours (if given advance notice).
All rehearsals are held at the Ent Center for the Arts, 5225 N. Nevada Ave, Colorado Springs CO.
Most performances are held in the Dusty Loo Bon Vivant Theater in the Ent Center for the Arts. Exceptions will be a concert musical in the Shockley-Zalabak Theater; our annual outdoor summer production; Shadows of Sleepy Hollow which performs in Downtown Colorado Springs, and Free-For-All, which will perform in schools and community centers around the Pikes Peak region.
