Clear Creek Community Theatre continues its Summer Shakespeare series with Shakespeare’s most violent play ever written, Titus Andronicus.
Returning from 40 years at war with the Goths, the Roman general Titus Andronicus executes the eldest son of Tamora, Queen of the Goths, setting off a long chain of revenge, cruelty, and murder.
Robert Leslie Meek will return as director. He has directed CCCT’s last three Shakespeare productions (The Tempest, Hamlet, Romeo & Juliet)
The show’s run is the last three weekends of July (14-16, 20-23, 27-30)
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.

Several Ensemble roles available as well.
This is a huge show and we are looking for a large cast, please invite your friends to come out as well. CCCT prides itself as being a place for people who have always wanted to get involved in theatre but never had the chance. We often cast people with little experience – our job is to serve our community by providing an artistic release for everyone. We’d love to have you join us
CREW MEMBERS & NEWBIES:
Audition nights are a perfect time to come out, meet the director, and express your interest in helping out backstage, be it in the role of a stage manager, lights & sound operator, concessions, or whatever else you might like to do.
They’re also GREAT for first-timers to come out and observe how things are done, maybe express interest in being a helper, or read for a part! We almost always cast at least one person who’s never been on stage before. You never know what can happen!
“Clear Creek has a great depth of talent in its acting pool and it’s always good to see all roles, large and small, performed to a high standard.”
