Baltimore Shakespeare Factory seeks actors of all races, ages, genders, and abilities for King Lear in Original Pronunciation. Director Marshall B Garrett is looking for joyful actors with an open heart, can-do attitude, and a willingness to keep trying new things. Some actors will be asked to sing, a few will be asked to play an instrument, and many will have fight choreography. If you have experience or interest in any of these areas, please indicate such on your audition submission. No experience with Shakespeare or Original Pronunciation is required. Recognizing that art plays a critical role in our culture, we are dedicated to making positive change in representation on and offstage. BIPOC folks, people of all gender expressions, and persons with disabilities are strongly encouraged to audition.
