Audition, Industry Listing.

Shakespeare in the Ruff will be holding General Auditions for our upcoming workshops and production on November 5th and November 6th.

Selected performers are asked to prepare either 2 contrasting Shakespearean monologues totaling no more than three minutes, or one Shakespearean scene (no more than four minutes). Actors who elect to bring a scene can choose to bring their own reader, or one of our company members will read cold with you.

Rehearsals for our annual production begin mid-July, and shows begin mid-August and run to early September.

Actors whose work is known to Shakespeare in the Ruff (Kaitlyn Riordan, Eva Barrie, A.J. Richardson) are encouraged to submit a letter of interest but might not be seen.

Please submit resumes and headshots as ONE PDF to We prefer to hear from artists. No agent submissions, please.

We thank all the hard-working actors sending submissions, but at this time only those artists receiving an audition will be contacted.

Submission deadline for actors is no later than 5pm on October 16th.

Shakespeare in the Ruff is committed to inclusive hiring and decolonizing the classical canon. We welcome submissions from professional artists of all genders, ethnicities, and abilities.
