We are seeking a company of intelligent, energetic and imaginative actors of all races and ethnicities for two productions that will tour a variety of outdoor venues across Cuyahoga and Lake Counties.

Twenty years ago, we started with a simple notion – the Bard belongs to the people, and the people deserve to hear his works in the open air as intended and free of charge. This summer, we are proud to present TROILUS AND CRESSIDA and TWELFTH NIGHT.

TROILUS AND CRESSIDA – directed by David Hansen
Performance Dates June 15 – July 1
Rehearsals begin May 7

TWELFTH NIGHT – directed by Anne McEvoy
Performance Dates July 20 – August 5
Rehearsals begin June 18

No appointment necessary. Artists will be seen in the order of sign in.
There are no AEA contracts available. No housing is provided. All actors and production staff are paid a stipend. Actors may participate in either one or both productions. Performances travel to a variety of outdoor venues - actors will be required to help with load-in and strike/load-out.

Prepare two contrasting monologues. Total delivery time of both monologues combined should not exceed three minutes. At least one of your two monologues must be from the works of Shakespeare.

For consideration, bring TWO COPIES of each - head shot & resume, and please also bring any & all possible known conflicts between the dates of May 7 & July 20 AND Fridays, Saturdays & Sundays through August 5.
