Auditions for Oxford Shakespeare Festival’s 2013 ‘Tenth Anniversary Reunion Season’ will be held Saturday, March 2, at 8:30 a.m. on the Ole Miss campus at the Khayat Law Center, first floor. Sign-up in the Atrium begins at 8:00 a.m. Callbacks will be 1:30-5 p.m. at the Law Center.
The 2013 Season will present Shakespeare’s clever and poetic “wordplay” comedy, LOVE’S LABOUR’S LOST, and MACBETH, his darkest tragedy, with its chilling characters who weave a psychological supernatural thriller. The musical HELLO, DOLLY! is Jerry Herman and Michael Stewart’s beloved hit based on Thornton Wilder’s The Matchmaker. We are thrilled to have Mary Donnelly Haskell in the role of the meddling Dolly Levi.
Festival performances run from June 14 through July 7, 2013, in the Ford Center for the Performing Arts (Main Hall) and Meek Hall Auditorium on the Ole Miss campus. Rehearsals and building begin May 16. Housing is provided for hired out-of-town actors and staff. Continuing Ole Miss student interns or staff will be awarded 2013-14 academic year scholarships.
Actors auditioning for scholarship internships or paid principal positions prepare one memorized two-minute (maximum) Shakespearean monologue and (optional) one complete song for HELLO, DOLLY! from an operetta or musical (bring sheet music). Cold readings will be available for actors auditioning for the Associate Company (volunteer; one show); one complete song is needed for HELLO, DOLLY! auditions.
Paid technical positions are also available. If interested, please send a resume to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Ole Miss will also be offering Summer Courses in First Summer Term 2013 that coincide with the Festival. Earn enrolled credit hours for onstage or backstage work!
