We are looking for passionate, joyful, exuberant performers with a sense of humor and love for rehearsal, will double in at least two roles in the play, must have great ability and facility with the text, must have exceptional movement skills especially with weight sharing and lifts, singing and musical instruments a plus. All types, ethnicities, and ages are strongly encouraged to audition.

Please prepare a less than 1 minute Shakespeare monologue in verse (you will be stopped). Please do not prepare a monologue from R&J.
Please bring headshot & resume stapled together.

If cast we are offering a $300 travel stipend.

This is an open call, please do not call or e-mail. Audition slots are first come first served, we will see as many people as time permits.

Please note: 4 of the 6 ensemble members have been cast.
