GreenStage is auditioning for our 2017 Shakespeare in the Park Season. Our season includes two full length, full cast productions, and our Backyard Bard series that consists of two abbreviated plays both done by the same cast of 4 actors.

THE COMEDY OF ERRORS – Directed by David Gassner
RICHARD II Directed by Susannah Rose Woods

Backyard Bard plays are A MIDSUMMER NIGHT’S DREAM and HAMLET – Directed by Erin Day

Actors of all ages, genders, and color are encouraged to audition.

Our productions are largely ensemble based, with some actors taking on multiple roles. We are interested in seeing actors who have experience in outdoor theater, but all actors are welcome.

At this point, all roles are open.

Each of our productions tours to approximately 12 outdoor park locations in and around Seattle.
