Auditions for Macbeth. Seeking actors trained in stage combat.

Location: Miami, FL

Type: Theater

The Florida Shakespeare Theater is seeking actors trained in stage combat for the 2020 Mainstage production of William Shakespeare’s Macbeth, to be directed by Colleen Stovall. The role of Macbeth is to be played by Seth Trucks.

?Written as a sop to King James I of England, Macbeth is a shamelessly dark and gleefully evil portrayal of a real Scottish King. Three wyrd sisters tantalize Macbeth with three equivocal predictions of success that eventually come true, but also drive him mad.

?Although the leads, (Lady Macbeth, Macduff, Banquo and Macbeth and Duncan) are cast, the play is full of meaty roles for supporting and character actors, including the Porter, Lennox, Ross, and Lady Macduff.

This production will feature stage combat that includes training in broad sword, and hand to hand combat.

We practice color and gender blind hiring and casting, and do not discriminate as to disability.

This is a professional, paid production. visit www.floridashakes.com for more information.

TO AUDITION:

If you are selected to audition in person, please prepare a monologue from Shakespeare and be prepared to learn a stage combat combination with a broadsword.

Payment: Paid

City or Location of call: Miami, FL
Please submit to: shakesmiami@gmail.com by 2019-10-01
