To schedule an audition appointment by phone or email, please tell us your name, whether or not you are a member of Actor’s Equity Association, your preferred audition date and time, your email address, and phone number. We will contact you to confirm your appointment, with email as our preferred communication tool. In the event you need to cancel or change your appointment, please let us know as soon as possible.
Equity actors please prepare two contrasting Shakespearean monologues, total 3 min. max; non-Equity please prepare one Shakespearean monologue, 2 min. max. Bring photo/resume to the audition. We will also see a short example of any special talents (singing, juggling, musical instrument, etc.); this season we are particularly looking for actors who sing or play country/western instruments. Please prepare to use your full voice; ours is a large outdoor amphitheatre.
Out of town actors wishing to audition in San Rafael before February may send photo/ resume to: management@marinShakespeare.org along with information about when you would be available for an audition appointment. At the Artistic Director’s discretion, an appointment may be scheduled after your resume is received.
We will also accept videotape auditions; we are particularly interested in actors with extensive outdoor Shakespeare experience. Some housing for out of town AEA actors is available. Please be aware that you are more likely to be considered for casting if we can meet you in person. For video auditions, we prefer that you send a link to info@marinShakespeare.org
