Equity Auditions

Many PATA members are also members of the Actors Equity Association, or AEA, the labor union responsible for representing live theatrical performance.

In 2018, PATA has the following opportunities for Equity actors:

  1. Attend Unified Shakespeare Auditions during Equity hours - Date TBA
  2. Attend PATA Generals on Equity day - Monday, April 16th. Registration opens in March 2018.

We do require AEA members to join PATA in order to attend auditions, as membership dues are what allow us to provide programs for the theatre community at large, including AEA Auditions.

Joining PATA is a simple process, and guarantees that we can provide you with resources and information whenever we have them available.


  1. You will have 3 minutes total to audition with 1 or 2 monologues, or a song and a monologue.
  2. You MUST present your Equity card when you sign in, or you will be unable to audition.
