Auditions for Shakespeare in the Park

posted in: News | 0

GreenStage is auditioning for our 2018 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.

2018 productions

THE THREE MUSKETEERS – Directed by Erin Day
HENRY IV, PART ONE – Directed by Amelia Meckler

Backyard Bard plays are THE TWO GENTLEMEN OF VERONA and THE WINTER’S TALE – Directed by Jennifer Crooks

All three tours run from July 13 – August 19, and rehearsals start June 2nd.

** Actors of all ethnicities, genders, ages, and body types/sizes are especially encouraged to audition. **

** Stage combat training and/or experience a plus. **

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 twelve outdoor park locations in and around Seattle.

Audition Dates:

Saturday, April 7 from 5:00-9:30 pm
Sunday, April 8 from 11:00 am-4:00pm

Callbacks will be April 14 and 15

Audition Requirements:

  • Please prepare 2 Shakespeare or classic monologues, at least one in verse.
    • we encourage you to chose monologues that you are inspired by, not necessarily the gender of the role.
  • Bring 3 copies of your headshot and resume (one for each production.)
  • We strongly suggest familiarizing yourself with the plays in our season prior to auditioning.

 

Actors are paid a $400 stipend at end of run
