Auditions for adult Equity and non-Equity actors are held periodically throughout the year. (For auditions for Tallahassee area youth, please see our Bardlings program.)
We advocate for diversity throughout our organization and strongly encourage auditions from members of traditionally underrepresented groups.
All currently open auditions for Southern Shakespeare Company shows are listed here and on our social media.
Typically, auditions request at least one <60 second monologue suited to the show’s style. Each audition’s requirements will be specified below.
A Town Divided Auditions: August 23-24, 7 pm at Turner Auditorium
Those who wish to audition should prepare a monologue or two contrasting monologues not to exceed 90 seconds total.
A Town Divided (February 8-10, 2023) uses stories collected from the Tallahassee community to highlight the complications and miseducation that lead to racial tension and long-term communal divide. The play’s allusion to Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet adds to its timelessness: for centuries audiences have witnessed what comes from fruitless feuds based in hate as they watch the tragic fate of Shakespeare’s star-crossed lovers.
Roles that will be cast (and their counterparts in Romeo and Juliet) include:
- Juelle (Juliet): 17 years old, black
- Rob (Romeo): 17 years old, white
- Elle (Lady Capulet): Juelle’s mother, black
- Sarah (Lady Montague): Rob’s mother, white
- Tyrone (Tybalt): Juelle’s older brother, black
- Sheriff Joe (the Prince): law enforcement officer, race open
