Malachite Theatre International is thrilled to be celebrating Shakespeare
around the world this April as we mark the 400th anniversary of his death. In the UK, we are working with the Museum of London to rediscover Shakespeare in Shoreditch at the archeological site of The Curtain Theatre. Following a UK tour, The Malachites production of Hamlet tours to the Guangzhou Drama Theatre in China. And in Canada we are celebrating with a calendar of exciting events throughout April, including our Edmonton General Auditions. Full calendar of Canadian events for Shakespeare 400 can be found on our upcoming Events Page.
Malachite Theatre is a critically-acclaimed Shakespeare company founded in London, UK. The company produces nationally and internationally touring work based on Elizabethan performance methodologies. General auditions are being held for the company’s 2016-2017 Canada season. More information can be found at: www.themalachites.co.uk
General auditions will also be held in Calgary, and are currently TBC.
Only Email submissions will be accepted. Please title submissions “Malachite General Auditions” and include a headshot and resumé in PDF format. Please indicate whether you have a preferred date and time for your audition. We will endeavor to be as flexible as we can with your availability requests.
Auditionees will be required to prepare one classical monologue (preferably in verse) lasting no longer than 2 minutes, and may be asked to do a cold read. If you play an instrument or sing, please prepare a short piece which demonstrates your musicality and is no longer than one minute.
CAEA members will be seen first at all open audition calls. Please bring your membership card to the audition. Malachite Theatre employs artists from all cultural and creative backgrounds.
