Directions & Parking
The historic theatre at 34 West Main Street in the heart of Babylon Village has undergone extensive renovations to restore the former movie theater to its original glory as a single theater with an orchestra and balcony for live theatrical events.
The Argyle opened in 2018. You can expect professional Broadway-caliber productions year-round, concert and comedy acts, specialty shows, film series, educational programming and so much more.
The build-out includes a new stage and three-level backstage, a new loading dock, a recessed orchestra pit, and state-of-the-art theatrical lighting, sound and rigging systems.
Argyle Children's Theatre Auditions:
The Argyle Theatre is seeking professional Non-Equity adults ages 18 and over who are strong singer-actors that can move well for roles in our Argyle Children’s Theatre’s productions.

Performances will be Saturday and Sunday mornings at 10:30AM, as well as some weekday mornings. No performance conflicts. Children's Theatre performers are provided a stipend per rehearsal day and a stipend per performance. Transportation/housing is NOT provided.

IN PERSON AUDITIONS FOR ARGYLE CHILDREN'S THEATRE PRODUCTIONS:
Please check back here in the future for in person audition postings for professional Non-Equity adult actors ages 18 and over.
For Main Stage Auditions:
Main stage casting for Argyle Theatre productions is handled by Michael Cassara Casting in New York City. Every season, The Argyle Theatre holds open auditions for its main stage productions – hiring professional actors from New York City as well as Long Island local hire performers. Whenever open calls are planned, they will be announced on this website, so check back often – and also be sure to follow our Facebook page. Each season’s required Equity Principal Auditions and Equity Chorus Calls are held in NYC and announced on Playbill.com and other trade publications. Although there is never a guarantee that we’ll be able to see EMC or non-Equity performers at these required calls, we will always attempt to if we’re able to (and we will always accept drop-offs from those who are not able to be seen).
If you are a non-Equity performer who is local to Nassau or Suffolk County and would like to be considered as a local hire for our mainstage productions, please e-mail Michael Cassara Casting (firstname.lastname@example.org) with your picture/resume and put “Argyle – local hire” in the subject line.
