TUTS does not accept video auditions. If you cannot attend one of our auditions then we hope to see you next time.

TUTS seeks to be a leader in supporting the extensive community of local artists based in Houston and the surrounding areas. To achieve diverse and high-caliber productions, TUTS invites and encourages interested performers from all walks of the profession to audition.

All performers must be 18 years old by the first day of rehearsal. Performers under the age of 18 are cast from the Humphreys School of Musical Theatre and The River School for Performing and Visual Arts.
