Theater Unspeakable Audition Notice for Shakespeare Project

Theater Unspeakable (TU) will be holding an audition for its new project, a Shakespeare-based production for students in grades K-3. In the coming year, TU will be touring this piece to elementary schools.  This project has already gone through an initial development process with a devising team and director Claire Kaplan. The show uses techniques like puppetry, clowning, platform, and Shakespeare’s text to introduce the Bard, and theater in general, to a young audience.

TU is seeking performers who are:

comfortable with movement as well as Shakespearean text
have the ability to portray multiple characters
enjoy the creation of new physical-based work

Performers are asked to wear movement clothes and to be available for their entire one-hour time slot. The workshop will consist of physical games and exercises, creating original stories in groups and as individuals. We would like to strongly encourage performers of all ethnicities, genders, sizes, and abilities to submit.

This project will be rehearsing Mondays and Tuesdays 4:00PM – 8:00 PM during February and March, with a performance in the last week of March or first week of April depending on cast schedules.

All contracted work with Theater Unspeakable is PAID.
