The Palm Beach Shakespeare Festival, the county’s second longest-running professional performance company, will hold auditions for its upcoming production of William Shakespeare’s Measure for Measure. Auditions will take place May 9, from 6 to 8:30 p.m. at The Benjamin Upper School Theater (4875 Grandiflora Road) in Palm Beach Gardens.
Interested actors are asked to bring a headshot and resume, along with a prepared one- to two-minute Shakespearean monologue. This year, the festival is also seeking actor-musicians, and instrumentalists are encouraged to prepare a short selection of music to follow their monologue. Rehearsals begin June 12. This is a non-Equity production.
This year’s production runs during Shakespeare by the Sea XXXIII in Carlin Park in Jupiter July 6-10 and 13-16, followed by an encore production during Shakespeare by the Palms III in Royal Palm Beach Commons Park July 20-23. All performances begin at 8 p.m.
