    General Auditions

    By: Will Brooks
    Category: In the News

    Shakespeare on the Saskatchewan will be holding General Auditions for the 2017 season and beyond in Saskatoon October 20 and 21 2016 and Regina October 24 2016.  Please note those dates may change as venues are confirmed.  We are accepting resumes and headshots from actors interested in auditioning for our 2017 festival productions of Twelfth Night and Richard III.

    With a mandate to celebrate Saskatchewan artists we are particularly interested in hearing from artists living in or with deep roots in Saskatchewan.  We also highly encourage diversity and gender parity in submissions and have plans to serve these voices.

    Artists whose work is familiar to Artistic Producer Will Brooks are encouraged to submit and express interest but may not be required to audition.  Artists who have worked with the festival recently are always encouraged to get in touch to keep us informed of their particular artistic interests.

    As part of our submissions we are also interested in hearing from directors, designers, and other artists who have interest in working with us.  Meetings and discussions for these submissions may not be held at the same time as the generals but can be arranged on an ad hoc basis starting immediately.

    Please forward resumes and headshots in PDF format to

    Only those artists receiving an audition will be contacted.

    Rehearsals will begin June 2 and the shows will begin previews July 5 running through to August 20 2017.

    Submission deadline for actors is no later than September 30th at noon but artists are always encouraged to get in touch early – particularly directors.
