Revolution Shakespeare Auditions

ABOUT
Revolution Shakespeare seeks union and non-union submissions for upcoming projects: a reading of Troilus and Cressida (May 14th), and our fall outdoor production of Cymbeline (Rehearsals start the week of 8/15, production runs 9/20-10/1).

Auditions will be held on April 4th, 2017 from 2-8pm at 9 Hostage Arts in West Philly. Slots are limited. Due to the number of submissions expected, we will only be able to acknowledge receipt of submissions that receive a slot.

Present at auditions will be Troilus and Cressida director Brenna Geffers, Cymbeline director James Ijames, and RevShakes' artistic staff. 

Revolution Shakespeare focuses on diversity and gender parity in the work we produce. For Troilus and Cressida, we are specifically seeking female identifying, non-binary, gender queer and non-gendered performers. All submissions will be considered for Cymbeline.
