The Ritz Theatre Company is currently seeking a diverse cast of actors and musicians for our upcoming production of MACBETH.

For the audition, actors should prepare a short monologue from Macbeth and a short classical monologue of your choice. Actors who play guitar, Celtic harp, tambor, hand drum, flute, horn, or violin may also play a very brief excerpt of a piece. All auditioners will be asked to participate in a brief stage combat combo immediately following their audition. Please dress to move.

PLOT:
One of the most transcendent tragedies in the history of theatre, William Shakespeare’s MACBETH dramatizes the damaging physical and psychological effects of political ambition on those who seek power. A brave Scottish general named Macbeth receives a prophecy from a trio of witches that one day he will become King of Scotland. Consumed by ambition and spurred to action by his wife, Macbeth finds himself in a rapidly-rising ascent of murder and deceit.

How To Apply

Anyone interested in auditioning should send an email containing their headshot, resume, and proof of vaccination/booster to [email protected] with the subject line “MACBETH” by Friday, December 2 @ 5:00pm.

Salary

All actors will be paid a small stipend.
