Geva is a member of the national League of Resident Theatres and works under an agreement with Actors Equity Association, the union of professional actors and stage managers. By agreement, most but not all adult actors are required to be members of the union and Geva uses casting director Karie Koppel of Koppel Casting in New York City for all Equity casting. Please address all resumes/headshots to her attention at:

Local non-union casting is done by the artistic staff in Rochester. Each year, General Auditions are held before the beginning of the new season at which time area adult actors present monologues and/or songs appropriate to the upcoming season. Any actor can audition every two years at Generals. Check this site for audition dates and requirements.
