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.

2017 productions are
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

GreenStage is Seattle's longest running Shakespeare company. This will be our 29th season of presenting free Shakespeare in the Park. Our productions are simply staged and focus on the stories, characters, and relationships in Shakespeare's works. Our mission is to inspire our audiences to engage with live theater as part of their recreation. Each summer, our shows are seen by over 11,000 residents of and visitors to the Seattle area. All our performances are presented free of charge so that anyone will have the ability to go see a play.

More information about the company and this summer's shows is available at www.greenstage.org

 

Character Breakdown / Project Needs
Actors of all ages, genders, and color are encouraged to audition.

Our productions are ensemble based, with many actors taking on multiple roles (especially in Backyard Bard).

We are interested in seeing actors who have experience with Shakespeare and outdoor theater, but this is not a requirement.

At this point, all roles are open.

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

Audition/Interview Dates:
Sunday, April 2 and Tuesday, April 4 from 6-10 pm

Callbacks or second audition/interview?

Audition Requirements:
Please prepare 2 Shakespeare or classic monologues, at least one in verse.

Bring 3 copies of your headshot and resume (one for each production.)

We strongly suggest familiarizing yourself with the scripts prior to auditioning.
