Shakespeare Carolina is Proud To Announce:
Auditions for our 20th Anniversary Season!
JANUARY 23-24th at 7PM
In The BB&T Room at Spirit Square
Shakespeare Carolina is looking for a lot of talented people, to get BARDCORE in this our 20th Anniversary Season!
Auditions will consist of cold readings from Tartuffe and Macbeth.
A prepared monologue is not required, but if you have one, we’ll take a look.
If you are a designer or technician, please bring your portfolio, as well.
We will be primarily casting volunteer actors for our first two productions Tartuffe and Macbeth (details below)
By Moliere, Adapted by Tim Mooney
Directed By Emmanuel Barbe
April 20-22 and 27-29 at The Duke Energy Theatre
When the religious hypocrite Tartuffe ingratiates himself into the good graces of Orgon and his mother Mme. Pernelle, he is taken into their home and promised Orgon's daughter's hand in marriage (even as he secretly attempts to seduce Orgon's wife, Elmire). Everyone else in the family sees through Tartuffe's pose, and his machinations and hypocrisies are eventually exposed, but is it too late to save the family from eviction and to keep Orgon from being thrown in prison? Moliere's classic comedy satirizes religious hypocrisy, blind piety, and deceit, and this adaptation captures these themes in playful irreverent rhyme.
By William Shakespeare
Directed By Chris O’Neill
June 22-24 and June 29-July 1 at The Duke Energy Theatre
A brave Scottish general named Macbeth receives a prophecy from a trio of witches that one day he will become King of Scotland. Consumed by ambition and spurred to action by his wife, Macbeth murders King Duncan and takes the Scottish throne for himself. He is then wracked with guilt and paranoia. Of course you know, it isn’t as simple as that, this will be an ensemble piece, with emphasis on a physical and devised approach.
Chris O’Neill will be scheduling an extended callback/workshop later in January for Macbeth.
The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (Abridged)[Revised]
By Adam Long, Daniel Singer, Jess Winfield
Directed by Amanda Liles

The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (abridged) [revised] is a madcap mashup of all of the Bard's plays. That's right, ALL OF THEM.

The Man in the Iron Mask
By Alexandre Dumas, Adapted By James R. Cartee and Mandy Kendall

The former musketeer Athos swears vengeance after despotic King Louis XIV causes the death of his son. Summoning his old comrades Porthos and Aramis, he hatches a plan to liberate a shackled prisoner rumored to be the king's twin brother, and then install him on the throne. But the three musketeers must also contend with their old friend D'Artagnan, who has remained in the king's service.
