Synopsis: What happens when four “woke” teaching artists, careful not to offend anyone, scramble to create a Thanksgiving Pageant that somehow combines Turkey Day with Native American Heritage Month? THEY OFFEND EVERYONE! Good intentions collide with absurd assumptions in this wickedly funny satire. Over-the-top unapologetically funny, this show gleefully skewers contemporary society and the nature of theatre itself. Celebrate with The Warehouse and kick off your holiday season like never before!

EVERY BRILLIANT THING is being produced by the Alabama Shakespeare Festival. All roles have already been cast in the original production and therefore will be excluded from the Season General Auditions.

THE HEATH is being produced by Merrimack Repertory Theatre first and is transferring to The Warehouse Theatre in January, 2020.  All roles have already been cast in the original production and therefore will be excluded from the Season General Auditions.

Playwright: John Cameron Mitchell
Music: Stephen Trask
Director: Andrew Scoville
First Rehearsal: February 4, 2020
Run: February 28, 2020-March 22, 2020

SHOW HAS BEEN CAST.

Synopsis: Hedwig is an “internationally ignored song stylist,” an East German rock’n’roll goddess who also happens to be the victim of a botched sex-change operation. This outrageous and unexpectedly hilarious story is dazzlingly performed by Hedwig in the form of a rock gig/stand-up comedy routine. Using songs and monologues, we get the torrid details of her life, her loves, and her career. It’s funny, touching, and ultimately inspiring to anyone who has felt life gave them an inch when they deserved a mile.

Singers should prepare 16 bars of a rock song. Please no Green Day.

Playwright: Kate Fodor
Director: Jay Briggs

As his three adult children sort through a lifetime of hoarded mementos and junk, they collide over clutter, debt, and a contentious family history. But after a disturbing discovery surfaces among their father’s possessions, the reunion takes a turn for the explosive, unleashing a series of crackling surprises and confrontations.

Upstate Shakespeare Festival Auditions

The 2019 season of the Upstate Shakespeare Festival has ended. Please check back for 2020 audition dates.

Audition Guidelines

First Timers: If you haven’t done a show for us, you will need to schedule an audition time. We’ll need to see your best Shakespearean monologue of no longer than a minute.  If you have a head shot and resume, bring them. If you don’t, don’t worry, it’s not a deal breaker. Also, no experience is needed.

Previous Performers: If you have already performed in one of the Festival’s productions, you can come to the call back nights without a monologue.

Students: If you are a student, please set up an audition slot (even if you’ve performed with us before). We want to see all you have learned over the year.

Audition Guidelines //

How to Prepare for Your Audition

Actors are asked to prepare a 60 second monologue.  If singing, please prepare a 45 second monologue and a song. The song should be no longer than 16 bars. Total time for the mono/song audition should not last longer than 90 seconds. A rock and roll song is preferred for this audition. Please no Green Day.  An accompanist will be provided on both dates.

All roles are open unless indicated. Please email Jason D. Johnson at [email protected] to set up an appointment. Make sure you leave contact information, AEA status, if you are singing, and preferred time slots.  On the day of the Equity auditions, Equity actors without appointments shall be accommodated as time permits.

Performance weeks for each show are typically Thursday – Saturday at 8p and Sunday at 3p.  Occasionally there will be a Wednesday show at 8p.

Again, please no Green Day.
