Shakespeare Festival St. Louis – Mainstage Auditions – Much Ado About Nothing

Website URL shakesfeststl Shakespeare Festival St. Louis

Shakespeare Festival St. Louis’s summer Shakespeare productions in Forest Park are one of the cultural gems of St. Louis. Playing to thousands of residents and visitors every night, they offer world-class artistry and an unmatched spirit of community in one of America’s greatest urban parks. This summer, the Festival offers up one of Shakespeare’s most popular and enduring comedies about the very different ways that we love and want to be loved.

We are committed to casting a diverse company of Equity and non-Equity actors. We invite gender non-conforming, genderqueer, transgender and non-binary actors to submit for roles they most identify with.

(There will be live music in the show. While not a requirement for any specific role, we are seeking actors who also sing and/or play musical instruments, especially ones interested in Balthasar.)

Choose and prepare a side (view at for the role you wish to be considered for. Actors auditioning for Balthasar should prepare a short song in addition to the Balthasar side. A reader will be provided for the auditions.
