Auditions for BSS
We are not holding auditions in Texas at this time. Watch this page for updates.
We also recommend joining our newsletter!
When you arrive for your audition, please have a one-to-two minute monologue memorized. We prefer that the monologue be in verse from an early modern play (Shakespeare or contemporaries). Dress to move, bring water, and expect to stay for 30-60 minutes. All auditionees will need to submit proof of COVID vaccination. If you must be late or you need to cancel or change your audition time, please email BareBonesShakespeare@gmail.com or call (469) 701-3228.
Every Bare Bones Shakespeare production is an ensemble show, and every actor (yes, EVERY actor) is cast in multiple roles. We are all about teamwork and learning from each other. The actors work together with the director as a vibrant creative team to craft the production. Bare Bones Shakespeare is particularly known for its audience interaction and adaptability, therefore actors with improvisation, street theatre, and/or devised production experience tend to thrive in our environments.
We particularly encourage LGBTQ, BIPOC and disabled actors to audition. (Learn more about our inclusion efforts here)
