Every summer, Park Playhouse produces three musicals - two that will be performed in July and August on our Albany Medical Center Stage in Albany's beautiful Washington Park, and one that will be performed on the historic Cohoes Music Hall or Palace Theatre stages. We also produce shows year-round at these partner venues, and look forward to working with diverse local and regional talents to bring our productions to life. We are interested in union and non-union talent for our professional productions, and welcome students from every experience level for our youth productions.

Auditions for our Summer 2017 Season will be in January & February 2018. Audition information for our year-round productions for 2017-2018 will be listed here as it is available. Please contact Ashley Kirchner, Associate Artistic Director, at with questions.
