Acting Auditions

Much AdoWe normally hire an acting company of around 22, which includes 2 to 3 Equity Guest Artists (Guest Artist Tier II contract this season), 11-12 non-Equity Resident company members (grad school and beyond, weekly scale comparable to other festivals, housing included), and 8 acting interns (undergraduate students, paid, class work in voice and text, free shared campus housing).

In 2014 (for the 2015 season), the Festival will hold auditions in two locations:

Williamsburg, VA on December 7
Callbacks on December 8
New York City, NY
on December 18 and 19
Callbacks on December 20

All auditions this year are being handled by electronic submission.  To request an audition in either location please email virginiashakespeare@gmail.com - your subject line should say either "NYC Audition request" or "Williamsburg Audition request" depending upon where you would like to be seen.  Attach a resume as either a pdf or word file and a small file version of your headshot.  Our casting office will then get back to you with an exact time slot and details on the location.  Actors are asked to prepare one to two Shakespeare monologues to fit in a total 3 minute timeframe. We prefer monologues that are not from the shows being cast.  Acting Intern candidates (currently undergrads or graduating this May) are considered as part of this regular audition process and should request an audition time as noted above.
