In the spirit of transparency Don't Tell Amy Productions would like to notify you of our payment system. All projects at this time operate on an ad-hoc payment basis in reference to ticket sales (unless otherwise stated). Therefore, while these roles are technically unpaid, we always pay our performers and technicians before we pay ourselves should the ability to do so rises. If you would like more information on this process or have any questions, please email us.
Each piece has its own audition requirements in addition to our standard actor submission forms - so please read each breakdown carefully and follow the directors' required criteria. For video submissions please film in a landscape orientation in a space with enough light for us to see your face. We also recommend playing back your audio to make sure the quality is that of which you'd like us to hear. In person auditions are in most cases also available to those local to the Long Island and Manhattan areas.
By submitting an audition with us you agree to follow all company guidelines as stated in the code of conduct available here.
