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

Local non-union casting is conducted in Rochester by Geva’s artistic staff. General auditions are held annually, prior to the beginning of each new season, at which time local adult actors are invited to present monologues and/or songs. Any actor is eligible to audition every two years at Generals.
