Backyard Bard plays are THE MERRY WIVES OF WINDSOR and MEASURE FOR MEASURE – Directed by Erin Day

All three tours run from July 12 – August 17, and rehearsals start in June

** Actors of all ethnicities, genders, ages, and body types/sizes are 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:

Sunday, March 24 from 11:00 am to 4:00 pm
Monday, March 25 from 5:00 – 10:00 pm

Callbacks will be March 31 and April 1

Auditions will be held at Theatre Puget Sound, on the fourth floor of the Seattle Center Armory. Seattle Center is located at 305 Harrison Street, Seattle, WA 98109

  • 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.
