Thank you for your interest in joining our vision of producing outstanding regional theatre and providing outreach opportunities to our community. Ensemble Theatre Cincinnati is an equal opportunity employer and is committed to recruiting and fostering a diverse community of staff. Applicants from diverse racial, ethnic, and cultural backgrounds are encouraged to apply.

Ensemble Theatre Cincinnati is a fully professional AEA/LORT (LOA) union theatre.


Ensemble Theatre of Cincinnati hires actors under the LORT (League of Resident Theatres) contract with Actors' Equity Association, the union for professional actors and stage managers. The union determines the number of non-Equity actors in any production. Actors are hired on a show-by-show basis during the season, although we accept headshots and resumes all year for consideration. We encourage actors of all backgrounds to audition. Most of the casting for Ensemble Theatre of Cincinnati productions is done locally, although some out-of-town actors are hired for almost every ETC production.
