I’m sorry we won’t be able to get back to everyone. I wish we could. Candidates selected for an audition will be notified by November 24, asked to prepare one Shakespeare monologue and/or given a scene to read.
Please mention any special skills at all in your cover letter, including if you sing, dance, play a musical instrument, have stage combat, acrobatic, busking, or puppetry experience.
Also, please note that we are an outdoor theatre. The space is large and the work is physically demanding. We do not use microphones so great diction and strong vocal projection is a must.
Our season consists of Antony & Cleopatra and The Three Musketeers, which play in rep (and for which we hire one cast), and The Complete Works of Shakespeare, Abridged (for which we hire another cast).
Outside dates for the rep shows are June 6 - August 12, outside dates for Complete Works are July 30 - August 20.
St Lawrence Shakespeare encourages submissions from actors of all cultural backgrounds.
Thanks for your interest in the Festival!
