The Utah Shakespearean Festival is auditioning actors to star in the Shakespeare-in-the-Schools touring production of “Macbeth.” Auditions will be on Wednesday, Sept. 29 from 2:30-4:30 p.m. at the Ex-Box Theatre on the campus of Utah Valley University (Gunther Trades Bldg., room 627- Southeast loop of UVU campus) and from 6 to 9 p.m. at the Rose Wager Performing Arts Center in Studio A (138 W. Broadway, Salt Lake City, UT 84101).
The Festival is looking for an ensemble of seven actors who will perform, load in the set, and teach workshops. The production will tour throughout the Intermountain West from January through April of 2011. The tour needs actors who are also great teachers and strong team players that work well in an ensemble.
Auditioning actors should come prepared with a professional headshot, resume, and two contrasting Shakespearean monologues that total 3 minutes. All roles are available. For more information, call the Festival education office at 435-865-8333.
