The Milwaukee Shakespeare Festival will hold auditions for A Comedy of Errors and Richard III on Tuesday and Wednesday, May 5th and 6th from 7 to 9pm at Theatre Unchained, 1024 S 5th Street, Milwaukee, WI 53204.

Actors are asked to bring a headshot and resume, if available. All auditioning are asked to bring a prepared Shakespeare monologue. The monologue does not need to be memorized. If you have two contrasting monologues, you may read them both if you wish. Also, you may be asked to read from sides of the scripts.

We are also looking for backstage crew members and designers. We will interview for prospective positions during the auditions as well.

Rehearsals will begin shortly after auditions, and will mainly be held on weekday evenings, occasional weekends. The festival will run June 12 – 28, 2015.

There are roles available for all ages and ethnicities. All roles are open. Most actors will be double cast in roles.   We are dedicated to the practices of flexible and imaginative casting, so feel free to audition for any role, regardless of race or gender.

To schedule an audition please email Jackie at If you cannot make either of the audition dates, let us know and we will try to schedule a separate audition for you.
