The Montford Park Players announces open auditions for two shows that will be performed in repertory, Shakespeare’s Macbeth and Pericles, both to be directed by Jason Williams. Rehearsals will begin in July, and the shows will run from Friday, September 3rd through to Saturday, October 9th.
All parts are open to any actor 18 and up, all experience levels, ethnic backgrounds, and gender identities. Individuals/families/couples/friends who are quarantining together are encouraged to audition. The same cast will perform both plays on alternating nights.
Prospective actors and technicians should review the COVID-19 protocols which can be found at https://www.montfordparkplayers.org/…/MPP-ACTOR-SAFETY…
. Actors and technicians recruited for this production will be required to abide by all safety protocols as contained in the document. Protocols are, of course, subject to change.
2) Record an audition video of a 1-2 min. video of any Shakespeare of their choosing. It can be a soliloquy, monologue, sonnet or scene. It doesn’t have to be memorized.
3) Virtual Auditions will be accepted until midnight May 30th.
Callbacks will be by invitation and will take place at a time to be determined. If an actor has already submitted a resume and Shakespeare video, they do not need to resubmit to be considered.
We’re also looking for stage managers for both shows, and a costume designer for MacBeth. Interested persons should email the director, Jason Williams, at [email protected]
