Queensland Shakespeare Ensemble are excited to announce auditions for its 2021 Core Ensemble and Apprentice Program are now open. Auditions will be held on the afternoons of the 28 and 29 November 2020, with call-backs on the evening of the 30 November 2020.
The Queensland Shakespeare Ensemble is an artist-run company with Core Ensemble members having priority for involvement in artistic roles, while also managing a business portfolio (eg. Administration, Members and Events, Marketing, Finance).
Auditions will consist of 15-minute slots in the following sessions, by appointment only – 2:00-6:00 PM, Saturday 28 November and Sunday 29 November. Please note that not all applicants will necessarily be offered auditions. The offer of an audition is dependent on the quality and fit of the application materials.
Prepare two pieces from any of Shakespeare’s plays, one comic piece and one dramatic piece (not necessarily from a comedy and a tragedy/history, just one piece with a comic tone and one with a dramatic tone). Each piece should be no more than two minutes long, and speeches do not need to be age/gender appropriate. Choose something with which you feel a personal connection.
