Audition for Us!

Shakespeare in Action will be holding auditions for our 2017/2018 roster of Actors and Actor/Educators in Fall 2017.

Roster members work primarily in four capacities:

  • running workshops in schools (with commitments on a day-by-day basis),
  • leading groups in the TD Shakespeare for Kids Library Club (commitment of 6 Saturdays required)
  • performing in touring productions (commitment of 4 to 6 weeks)
  • be a part of a pioneering new program, Shakespeare Hip Hop Fusion in association with the Toronto Public Library. Participants will serve as instructors and mentors to youth aged 13-17, helping to teach Shakespearean text, rap, hip hop dance, and/or spoken word.

Chosen candidates will be required to present a valid Vulnerable Sector Check (If chosen Shakespeare in Action can request a Vulnerable Sector Check on behalf of the candidate with a fee of $65 due to Toronto Police Services).

Applicants will be asked to share two of the following (of their choice):

  • a classical monologue
  • a song or rap
  • a piece of original writing
  • a piece of spoken word or poem
  • a contemporary monologue

Auditions will be held on Wednesday October 11th, 2017.  There is a training on October 19th, 2017.

Shakespeare in Action is committed to maintaining a roster that represents the diversity of our city and we encourage applications from anyone and everyone with a passion for Shakespeare.
