All professional and student actors with a high school diploma are encouraged to apply. Our students in recent years have been a diverse group of performers from all backgrounds and levels of experience, ranging in age from the late teens to the mid-fifties, hailing from all over the United States and the far reaches of the globe. We are searching for diversity in our ensemble in every way - ethnic, age, training, and life experience. In our students, we are looking for honesty, openness, and willingness to work.

To be considered for an audition, complete the School at Steppenwolf Application Form. Whether or not we audition all applicants is based on the number of applications we receive as there are a limited number of audition slots available. You will be notified about your audition status no more than two weeks after the application deadline. If you receive an audition, we will contact you about your specific date, time, location, and audition materials.
