Our 2018 season auditions took place in February, and the productions are now cast.

 

The Greater Victoria Shakespeare Festival is committed to hiring the best actor for the job. We encourage actors of all backgrounds/ ethnicities to audition, and endorse the use of audition pieces without regard to traditional gender.


Mentor Actors: Actors who anchor major roles, as well as teaching and mentoring the Company in text and speech work. These roles are paid.

Core Actors: Actors who play multiple roles in both plays. Some roles may be cross-gender cast. These actors receive workshops and engagement in a learning environment, as well as a small honourarium.

Company Actors: Actors who are cast in only one play. Some roles may be cross-gender cast. These actors receive workshops and engagement in a learning environment, as well as a small honourarium.

Junior Company: 2-4 actors, ages 13-18, who play minor roles as well as learn areas of stagecraft and technical theatre. These actors receive workshops and engagement in a learning environment.
