Shakespeare by the Bow 2018

 Theatre Calgary will be holding auditions in Calgary on Sunday February 11 in Edmonton and Monday February 12 in Calgary for the company of Shakespeare by the Bow (SBTB) which will perform The Two Gentlemen of Verona, directed by DEAN PAUL GIBSON, at Prince’s Island Park. 

There are a limited number of slots for Skype auditions if you are currently studying out of province. 

Shakespeare by the Bow is a program designed to help emerging actors make the transition from their training into the professional theatre. The first week is comprised of masterclasses based on The Two Gentlemen of Verona and rehearsals with Dean Paul Gibson begin the following week. The show is performed outside on a temporary stage in Prince’s Island Park where the audience is not required to purchase tickets but instead simply shows up and donates as they want/can at the end of the show. Over the course of the summer, participants will have further workshops and need to be prepared to rehearse a showcase piece to be performed for family, friends, and the theatre community. It is an intense program that requires daytime availability periodically all summer. Participants will be paid on a weekly basis.
