Call for Actors! CYS Ensemble 2020 Season
Chicago Youth Shakespeare Company Auditions
WHO: CYS Company auditions are only open to youth actors, ages 13-19 years old. (So even if you "look" young for your age, you actually have to be a teenager, sorry!)
Saturday, November 9th 2pm-6pm
Sunday, November 10th 5pm-9pm
Monday, November 11th 5pm-9pm
WHERE: Auditions will take place at The Chicago Literacy Alliance, located at 641 W. Lake Street, Suite 200 Chicago, IL 60661
WHAT to prepare: A monologue from any Shakespeare play (any role/gender), no longer than approx. 2 minutes.
*You do not need to bring a headshot or resume, just yourself and preferably a hardcopy of the monologue you'll be performing.
Production Schedule: CYS is planning to produce two Shakespeare plays, Measure for Measure and As You Like It, to be performed in repertory with ONE company of actors. Rehearsals will begin on Sunday, December 1st. Performances begin at Raven Theatre mid-January, followed by touring engagements at multiple venues through mid-March. Actors will receive a stipend and professional credit for their work.
