General Auditions

General Auditions

Identifying talent from across the North

We hold regular general auditions in Leeds as an opportunity for Yorkshire and Northern-based actors to meet with and audition for Artistic Director James Brining, Associate Director Amy Leach and Casting Director Kay Magson CDG.

The auditions are not for a specific production, but help us widen our knowledge of actors we might work with in the future on everything from workshops, scratch performances, creative engagement work and readings, community touring, and our mainstage productions.


These are open to professional actors who are currently based in Yorkshire and the wider North.

Due to limited capacity we cannot guarantee an audition for every actor who applies, but please remember that there will be further opportunities to be seen in the future.

Next round of general auditions

Our next round of local general auditions will be held in the middle of 2018.

We currently have a long list of actors to see for our next general auditions so submissions are currently closed. Once we’ve held the next round of generals, we’ll reopen for submissions. Many thanks.

We invite all locally based actors to join our Furnace Social Club. Through this, you can enjoy ticket deals, places on free workshops and talks, and other skills development opportunities, as well as hearing about forthcoming casting opportunities.
