Broadway Sacramento Casting Policies and Theatre Information

Broadway Sacramento actively solicits women and minorities for non-traditional casting opportunities. Broadway At Music Circus was founded in 1951 as the first professional musical theatre in the round west of the Mississippi. Until 2002, its first-class summer stock productions were presented under a canvas tent, the last of its kind in the country. In 2003, the company introduced its new, modern tent-theatre, the Wells Fargo Pavilion, which combines the traditional arena stage with improved audience comfort. Broadway At Music Circus is the largest, continually operating musical theatre-in-the-round in the country, making it a landmark in the professional theatre community and a living museum of musical theatre history: Broadway At Music Circus is America’s theatre-in-the-round. Broadway At Music Circus operates under a contract with Actors’ Equity Association, the union for professional actors in the United States, and the majority of the principal and ensemble cast members have extensive Broadway and national tour credits. The acting company for each Broadway At Music Circus season is announced in late spring. Broadway At Music Circus is presented under the leadership of President and CEO Richard Lewis, Producing Artistic Director Scott Klier and Artistic Consultant Glenn Casale.
