    Audition Information

    Students should complete the following steps before auditions:

      • Thursday, September 4 at 3:15 pm

    3. Students can prepare a vocal audition piece of their choosing or sing a song from the show that the vocal director will select and teach to the whole group.

    Guthrie Shakespeare Camp Auditions

    Tuesday, July 1st from 4pm-6pm,
    Saturday, July 5th from 4pm-6pm
    AND Sunday, July 6th from 3pm-6pm.

    A 10-day workshop featuring basic acting workshops, movement workshops, and Shakespeare Master Classes. Admission is by audition and interview.

    The workshop is designed for High School Sophomores, Juniors and Seniors (Fall 2014). The workshop will focus on understanding, speaking, and acting Shakespeare, along with basic tenets of acting.

    The Guthrie is seeking talented students with acting experience who are ready for ten days of high-level training. Sessions will run from 10:00am to 4:00pm, Monday – Saturday. There will be no class on Sunday. There is a fee of $300 total for the workshop. However, students should not be dissuaded from auditioning because of the fee; we will make every effort to assist worthy actors with necessary scholarships! Lodging and meals are not provided. This project is an excellent transition opportunity for high school students interested in forging a path to professional-level theater training programs.

    For more information, please contact Amanda Davis, Company Development Assistant at the Guthrie, by emailing or by calling 612.225.6183.
