One of our company's guiding values is to provide support for all types of theatre artists: we are proud to offer Indy theatre actors, directors, designers, technicians and managers artistically satisfying, paid work.



Indianapolis Shakespeare Company will be holding auditions for the Travelling Troupe inaugural production of Macbeth (one-hour interactive), adapted & directed by Bart Simpson. 

Auditions: February 25 & 26, 6-9PM at Butler University, Lilly Hall 328, Call backs February 27th.

This Macbeth will be an exciting, interactive, one-hour adaptation, and will be shared at various local community venues (libraries, parks, etc.). Six actors (3M, 3F) will play all the roles, as well as assist the Stage Manager in set-up & strike at performance venues. Up to 60 hours of rehearsal in May, mainly Tues, Wed, Thurs evenings.
