Auditions Scheduled for 'Shakespeare to Go'
The North Carolina Shakespeare Festival (NCShakes) will hold auditions in September for the 2013 Shakespeare To Go tour, the company's outreach and education program that performs and teaches at schools across North Carolina.
Auditions will be held Sept. 6 and 7 from 4 to 6 p.m. at NCShakes' Spirit Center campus (807 W. Ward Ave., High Point). To schedule an audition, call NCShakes at (336) 841-2273.
NCShakes seeks a non-equity, multiracial touring company of six actors - three women and three men - plus an actor/company manager, who will perform a 60-minute production of "A Midsummer Night's Dream" and a 45-minute version of "Romeo and Juliet" in repertory.
The company is looking for actors who are especially versatile, with a strong Shakespearean background. Experience in stage combat, physical comedy and teaching will be helpful.
For the audition, actors should prepare two one- to two-minute contrasting Shakespeare monologues. NCShakes requires an 8-by-10 head shot and detailed resume at the time of the audition.
