Play a Part in the Notre Dame Shakespeare Festival

Open Auditions for the 2014 Notre Dame Shakespeare Festival's productions of Henry IV (The Professional Company) and The Merry Wives of Windsor (The Young Company) will be held Saturday, March 1, 2014 from 11 a.m. until 5:00 p.m. The Festival is seeking male and female actors for Henry IV and twenty (20) male and female actors, ages 18 and up for the Young Company.

Adult Actors: 11:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m.
Young Company: 1:00 p.m. - 5:00 p.m.

Actors should prepare one (1) classical monologue under three (3) minutes in length. (Preferably Shakespeare, but it is more important to have a piece you know well, and with which you can play.) Actors who sing and and/or play musical instruments should prepare a song. (No accompaniment or instruments will be provided.)

To schedule an audition appointment, please contact Company Manager Deb Gasper, either via e-mail at dgasper@nd.edu or by phone at 574-631-2273. Learn more!

The Professional Company's professional actors, artists, directors, designers, and technicians create live performances in the beautiful DeBartolo Performing Arts Center at the University of Notre Dame. Young Company performers play supporting roles, providing an opportunity to work and train with some of the best in the business. Artists have worked in Broadway Theatres, and for Chicago Shakespeare, Steppenwolf, the Goodman, as well as American Players Theatre, Milwaukee Rep, and the Utah, Oregon, New York, and Illinois Shakespeare Festivals, just to name a few!
The Young Company is a direct outgrowth of the Notre Dame Shakespeare Festival’s mission to exploring the works of William Shakespeare and other classical authors through performance for the educational, social, and cultural enrichment of its surrounding communities. Hailing not only from Notre Dame and St. Mary’s College, Young Company performers come from Oklahoma, Georgia, Colorado and even further afield. Young Company members have

graduated from the program to enjoy careers in acting, design, and production all over the country.
