Auditions

The Philadelphia Shakespeare Theatre is currently casting for its upcoming Macbeth School Tour production. This professional tour is a six-person ensemble, with actors playing multiple roles in Macbeth. Actors must have substantial experience performing Shakespeare. Dates of rehearsal and performances run from March 13 through April 27, 2018. The tour travels to high schools across the Delaware Valley, and is a great collegial experience with competitive pay. Students and teachers loved our production of Hamlet last year, and are excited to have us back for Macbeth. Actors must be flexible and easy to get along with, as well as demonstrate talent and skill in Shakespeare techniques of acting. A good sense of humor is a great help!

Rehearsals are 10-6pm from March 13 through April 1, 2018. Performances are from April 2 through April 27, 2018 (Monday-Friday, during the daytimes). All roles are open for audition.
