Shakespeare & Company will be holding non-Equity auditions / interviews for the Education Program’s 2021 Northeast Regional Tour of Shakespeare in October of 2020.
We are seeking up to six Actor/Teaching Artists for our winter/spring non-Equity touring contract. The 2021 Tour will include a 90-minute production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream and a 45-minute production of Shakespeare and the Language that Shaped a World. Each will be presented by the same cast of six actors, most of whom will play multiple roles in each production (doubling subject to final casting). In addition to the performances, the Actor/Teaching Artists will be responsible for leading 15-minute moderated talkbacks following each performance and 45-minute educational workshops in the schools before or after the show. All Actor/Teaching Artists will also be responsible for stage management duties, which will include but are not limited to assisting with lights, sound, sets, costumes, and props while on the road, driving to and from bookings, and some administrative tasks.
Additional information about audition dates and protocols, contract dates, and salary will be available in early October. We are unable to respond to audition inquiries at this time.
Shakespeare & Company is an E.O.E. and encourages people of all backgrounds, identities, and ethnicities to audition. This is a non-Equity contract. If you are a member of Actors’ Equity Association, we cannot consider you.
