Auditions for MacBeth | NYC


Casting notice posted on, casting location: New York City
White Rabbit Theatre and Red Shark Productions seek classically trained/experienced actors for an Equity showcase (approval pending) of William Shakespeare’s Macbeth, opening March 9, 2011 at Wings Theatre in New York City. The production will have 14 performances over the course of three weeks. Andrew Rothkin, Director. Clara Barton Green, Assistant Director/Dramaturg.

Auditions to be held on Sunday, December 5 and Monday, December 6, 2010 by appointment.

Workshopping will begin the week on January 24; official rehearsals will commence the week of January 31.

Rehearsals will take place weekday evenings and on weekends.

We seek ensemble-based actors of all ages, 18 – 70+, of diverse ethnicities.

Some actors will play two or more roles. Stage combat experience – swords, knifes, and unarmed – required for some roles. Ability to play a musical instrument and singing ability helpful for some roles.

Please note that the witches will be more prominent than usual in this production and on stage almost the entire show. Witches will need to sing and dance. Please also note that the witches will be nude — or near nude — through some of the play, and will be covered partially or wholly in body paint.

The role of Lady Macbeth has been cast. All other roles are open.

To ensure a stunning and fluid production, casting consideration/priority will be given to actors who volunteer to be part of a work crew (light hanging, set-building, costume building, event planning, etc.) at the time of their initial audition.

Actors who are called in for appointments will be asked to prepare a 60 second classical verse monologue. (Some actors may be asked to do a second, contrasting piece, classical or contemporary.)

See for more details.

For immediate consideration, please send picture and resume to Andrew at:

We would be happy to answer any questions or concerns you may have.
