Auditions: May 20th and 21st
Clear Creek Community Theatre continues its Summer Shakespeare series with a bold re-imagining of one of Shakespeare’s most famous tragedies, Macbeth. Returning home from battle, the victorious Macbeth meets three witches on the heath. Driven by their disturbing prophecies, he sets out on a path of murder and destruction.
Returning to direct is Robert Leslie Meek who has directed our last four Shakespeare productions (The Tempest, Hamlet, Romeo & Juliet, & Titus Andronicus)
Performances will run the middle two weekends of July (13-15 and 19-22)
Auditions will consist of mostly cold readings. A 1-2 minute Shakespearean monologue that matches the tone of the play and demonstrates an understanding of text is highly encouraged but not required. Please Bring a Resume and Head Shot if available. Feel free to email firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.
