The Montford Park Players is pleased to announce auditions for Hamlet, directed by Glenna Grant.
Actors will submit initial audition information online through our website at…/volunteers-page/ and may do so at any time.
The Montford Park Players is committed to gender-neutral and race-conscious casting. ALL are welcome and invited to participate! Community theatre is at its best when it fully embraces and engages its FULL community, not just one portion.
BIPOC actors, we need you.
LGBTQIA+ actors, we need you.
Actors with disabilities, we need you.
Actors of all ages, we need you.
For auditions for Hamlet, the submission deadline is 11:59pm Saturday, June 25th, 2022. Callbacks will be held in person on Saturday & Sunday, July 2nd and 3rd, from 10am to 4pm. Callback location is TBD. The director will contact each pre-selected actor with specific times.
Hamlet will be performed Fridays through Sundays, September 23rd – October 22nd at 7:30 pm.
Specific instructions for audition submissions:
On the website above, click on the link below “Actor Season Audition Form”
Sign in to your Google account (required as most information will be shared in Google documents)
Fill out and submit the form – if you have a headshot and/or resume (not required), please upload them as part of your application.
Please audition for whatever character you are most interested in! Record a 90-second video of yourself reading a Shakespeare monologue that fits the characters you’d like to be considered for – you can do so on your phone.
If possible, please film in Landscape mode, framing yourself from the waist up if able, with a neutral background. Make sure you’re well lit so that we can see your lovely face! (These are not hard and fast rules, just ideal circumstances.)
Please name your video with your name, not the default title; ex. “Smith, John Video”
On the website, click on the link below “Actor Season Video Upload Link” and upload your video.
The director will review each application and video, and will contact prospective actors for callbacks.
Important: This season, the Montford Park Players will require that all persons involved with any show must be fully vaccinated, or present a request for exemption, stating the reasons. The Executive Director, in consultation with the director, will make the final decision on the selection or non-selection of any person who is not fully vaccinated.
Anyone who is interested in a technical role only (stage management, lights, sound, etc.) should send an email to [email protected] and include your background, if any. We welcome all volunteers!
