Backwards in High Heels, 2011

Cleveland Play House is committed to casting locally, in New York, and occasionally in other cities. CPH conducts an annual open call, generally in the spring, for all union and non-union actors from the local area. Following the open call, individuals may be called in to read for specific productions and other opportunities during the course of the season.

For actors outside the Cleveland area, please address all submissions to Casting Director Paul Fouquet of Elissa Myers Casting, 333 West 52nd Street, #1008, New York, NY, 10019. Non-local actors should not send materials directly to CPH. Non-local AEA actors from out of town who are passing through may contact CPH Associate Producer Corey Atkins to arrange a general audition, depending on staff availability.

Actors living in the Cleveland area, or who have housing available within a 50 mile radius of CPH, may send a headshot-résumé to:

Cleveland Play House
Attn: Casting
1901 E. 13th St., Suite 200
Cleveland, OH 44114
