Hamlet at the James J Hill House Auditions

***We've already had a lot of interest in auditioning. We will be adding time on Sunday the 27th for initial auditions. Times forthcoming!

Welcome! We at Wayward Theatre Company believe strongly that a play is directly affected by the space and we strive to challenge the traditional approach to staging. With that…

We will be holding auditions for multiple roles for our spring production of Hamlet, directed by Michael Kelley, performed in promenade at the Historic James J Hill house. Rehearsals will begin January 8th and opening is March 1st with other shows on March 2, 3, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 22, 23 and 24 all at 7:30pm.

Auditions will be at Springhouse Ministry Center at 610 W 28th St, Minneapolis, MN 55408 August 27, 28, and 29

Callbacks will be August 31 and September 1

Rehearsal are typically Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday evenings from 6:30pm – 10:00pm and Saturdays from 11:00am – 5:00pm. We might have some Wednesdays added in as well.

Please prepare 1 or 2 contrasting Shakespeare or English Renaissance monologues (at least one in verse) no longer than 1.5 minutes in total. We ask for you to arrive 10 minutes early to fill out our audition form. The roles of Hamlet and Horatio have been pre-cast with Wayward members Tim McVean and Sarah Nargang.

We encourage actors of all colors, ages, and orientations to audition. We will cast the role for the best actor.

All roles are paid a stipend
