​Director's Notes:

Whether you have never done Shakespeare before or you are a Shakespearean veteran, you are in good company auditioning for this production. All experience levels are welcome and encouraged to audition!

The show will be set in the 1920s and there will be some music and dancing involved.

The best place to start is to read the 
script (or watch one of the many film/ filmed stage adaptations of the play.) You can also take a look at the character list

Please prepare a Shakespearean monologue for the audition. (There are several options prepared and provided for you in the folder below, but you are not limited to those options. You may choose an alternate monologue from the show or from any other Shakespearean show.) 

Here are several monologues from the show. Read through them and find one that speaks to you; feel free to experiment with both male and female character monologues! Memorization is preferred.

You may be asked to read an additional monologue or scenes in the audition and you may be considered for a character other than the one(s) you read for.

 If you have any questions please do not hesitate to email:

We look forward to seeing you at auditions!
