Audition (Edmonton): Puppet Shows With Thou Art Here At The 2019 Freewill Shakespeare Festival


Join us down in the park for the Thou Art Here puppet shows at the 2019 Freewill Shakespeare Festival


Thou Art Here Theatre is looking for dedicated and enthusiastic individuals to join our team this summer for the Freewill Shakespeare Festival. Performers will rehearse and perform our Shakespearean puppet shows that are presented to the public before the mainstage performances. We are looking for collaborative performers who want to build skills and get hands-on practice, all while learning Thou Art Here’s unique style of adapting Shakespearean text!

Puppetry, improvisation, singing and musical instrument experience are an asset, but not essential.

Applicants must be available for rehearsals in late May/early June as well as performances at the 2019 Freewill Shakespeare Festival from June 18 to July 14, 2019

Available positions:

  • 2 contracted artists to be reimbursed with an honorarium of $1000
  • 2 SCiP interns who will receive a $1000 scholarship each for post secondary education.

*Please review the eligibility criteria below for receiving a SCiP internship and specify in your email if you qualify.

NOTE: This job conflicts with the scheduling of the Freewill Young Company position.


Sunday February 3 between 1pm and 10pm at Citadel Theatre – Classroom B
