Open auditions will be held for the Bard in the Barracks productions of William Shakespeare’s Cymbeline and our remount of The Comedy of Errors on May 1-2 at Memorial Hall on the UNB campus. The plays will be performed outdoors (in Odell Park and Barracks Square respectively) and will collectively run from June 21-July 8, with exact performance dates for each play still to be determined. The plays will be directed by Len Falkenstein, and will be rehearsed intensively (mainly evening hours) beginning the week of May 6.
Roles are available for actors of a variety of ages. Auditions will take place from 7:30-10:00 p.m. on Tuesday, May 1 and Wednesday, May 2, with callbacks from 7:30-9:30 p.m. on Friday, May 4. Those auditioning are encouraged to familiarize themselves with the plays beforehand. Auditions will focus on Cymbeline (with only a small number of roles from The Comedy of Errors to be recast) and will consist of readings from the play. Prepared monologues may also be performed, but are not required.

To book an audition, please email, indicating your availability for the audition dates and any preference for date/time.
