Role Details:

“Adam” — Seeking a male-identifying actor age 18-30 (approx.). Actors of all ethnicities, backgrounds, and body types are encouraged to audition. Actor needs to be agile and adept at physical comedy. Lots of running in a dress and screaming. Training in Shakespeare and stage combat are a plus.



All 37 plays in 97 minutes! Three madcap men in tights weave their wicked way through all of Shakespeare’s comedies, histories, and tragedies in one wild ride that will leave you breathless and helpless with laughter. An irreverent, fast-paced romp through the Bard’s plays, THE COMPLETE WORKS OF WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE (ABRIDGED) was London’s longest-running comedy.



This is a paid opportunity! The performer will receive a stipend of $1,000 following completion of the last performance.


Audition Sides:

If you have someone to read the “Juliet” sides with you, feel free to include those. If not, we may ask you to read them at a callback.

How to Submit an Audition: 

Please fill out the audition form at the following link (, and at the end, please upload a video of you performing the sides. If you would like to send a headshot and acting resume, please send them to [email protected].
