General auditions have concluded for our 2015 season, but we are still casting a few specific roles:

An actor is needed to fill the lead role of Delaney Mossbacher in Tortilla Curtain, adapted by Matthew Spangler, based on the novel by T.C. Boyle. Character specifics: Male, mid-30’s-40’s, educated/writer, lives in a well-off housing development near Los Angeles, likable. This poignant play is a tragicomedy of misunderstandings, dealing with the issues of opposing classes, cultures, xenophobia, immigration, and environmental destruction. Rehearsals begin Sept. 5 and performances run Oct. 24-Nov. 14 in the Studio Theater. Please send headshots and resumes to

Actors are needed to fill a couple roles in The Liar by David Ives, adapted from the comedy by Pierre Corneille. Actors must be male, 20’s-30’s, and have a strong sense of physicality and strong abilities working in verse. The play is a deliciously fun-loving farce. The hero is handsome, charming, and a pathological liar, winning admirers wherever he goes, to the chagrin of his servant, who cannot tell a lie. Mix-ups and witty word play abound. Rehearsals begin Aug. 1 and performances run Sept. 18-Oct. 4. Please send headshots and resumes to
