MORE INFO: Maryland Shakespeare Festival announces open call auditions for the upcoming season. MSF is developing an ensemble of generous, curious, and fearless actors interested in exploring the works of William Shakespeare from an original practice perspective. We are currently seeking Non-AEA actors for our Shakespeare Alive! school tour. This tour will begin primarily in mid-February and will run until the end of May. As an MSF Teaching-Artist you will become familiar with our approach in the rehearsal of “Wild and Whirling Words,” a 45-minute production that uses famous (and not-so-famous) scenes from Shakespeare’s plays. “Wild and Whirling Words” is meant to provide students with a positive introduction to Shakespeare by showing the importance of words, and how we use them. Each actor has 3-4 roles within the show. MSF Teaching-Artists tour the show, and teach extended Residencies in area schools. These Residencies are theatrically oriented, not lectures. Expect to lead classes in theatre warm-ups, games, and scene study. Teaching experience a plus, but not required.
