The Summit Players will be holding auditions for their 2018 Summer Shakespeare in the State Parks production of Twelfth Night on Sunday, March 18th, from 2 – 5pm at the Village Church, 130 East Juneau Ave., Milwaukee.  *

Summit Players is looking for enthusiastic actors/teaching artists with a spirit of adventure, who love Shakespeare and the great outdoors.  In our 75 minute high energy productions the company of 6 actors cover all of the 14+ roles in the play.  Actors are also responsible to help lead the Educational Workshops held prior to each public performance.  There is a stipend of up to $150 per week.

Interested actors should email maureenkilmurry@sbcglobal.net  to obtain an audition slot.  Please attach a picture and resume if you have one.  Actors chosen to audition will need to prepare one Shakespearean monologue (preferably verse) of no more than 2 minutes in length, as well as 16 bars of a song that shows your range (a cappella).  Actors interested in auditioning need to be available for the commitment as described below. 

  • Rehearsals run evenings and weekends from Monday, May 21 through Thursday, June 21, approximately 25 hours per week.  This schedule allows for actors in the company to have a job on weekdays.
  • Performances are weekends from June 22 to July 1, followed by a short break, and then continue July 13 through August 12.
  • This is a touring production that goes to 17 different State Parks all over Wisconsin.   Several of our performance weekends you will be on the road in order to get to the parks that are further afield.  Transportation, food and lodging are included on these travel weekends in addition to your weekly stipend.
  • Once open, there are brush-up rehearsals on Thursday evenings as needed.
