REMEMBER: There is NO late seating at FringeNYC. More hints are available on our HOW TO FringeNYC page.

Can I audition for one of the FringeNYC Shows?

Each participating individual or company produces their own show performed at FringeNYC. Therefore, there are no general auditions for performers at FringeNYC. Companies selected to participate in FringeNYC often place casting notices in trade publications such as Backstage in May, June and July preceding the festival. We no longer maintain a headshot and résumé file at The Present Company, since so much of that information is now available online.

FringeNYC is an adjudicated festival, with applications becoming available in December. Check back then for further information.
