SAINT JOAN auditions

The Orchard Theater Collective is looking to cast four performers for their spring production of SAINT JOAN, written by George Bernard Shaw and directed by Ben Robert Shaw. 

1st Rehearsal--February 3rd

1st Performance--March 5th 

Closes--March 21st 

About: Widely considered to be George Bernard Shaw’s greatest literary achievement, SAINT JOAN follows the life of French soldier, Joan d’Arc, from her first entrance into the public arena, through her involvement in the Hundred Years’ War, to being burned at the stake in 1431.

In his preface to this play, Shaw wrote, “There are no villains in the piece...It is what men do at their best, with good intentions, and what normal men and women find that they must and will do in spite of their intentions, that really concern us.” We’re looking to explore just that. 


Audition Dates: November 25th and 26th with a possible callback on December 2nd.

Note: Our intention is to put on this show with an intrepid group of five actors playing more than twenty characters. You can look forward to a collaborative process exploring how to tell a complex story as simply and with as much clarity as possible. 

What to prepare: This will be a group audition, so please come to play. Be familiar with EACH CHARACTER in the group scene below. If you would like to read for the character of St. Joan, also prepare the attached monologue. 

Please bring a headshot and resume. 

Where: Bethlehem Baptist Church 

720 13th Ave S, Minneapolis, MN 55415

All roles currently available. Each actor will play several characters except for the actor playing Joan. 

Performers of ALL ethnicities, genders, ages, and abilities are encouraged to audition. Everyone gets to play. 

Stipend paid: $800
