There's still time: Auditions for Shakespeare On The Green!

FRIDAY, JANUARY 30TH, FROM 6-10 PM
and 
SATURDAY, JANUARY 31ST, FROM 12-7 PM

Auditions are by appointment. Those interested in auditioning are asked to prepare two contrasting monologues (one comedy and one dramatic piece are preferred). Total prepared material should not exceed 3 minutes.

For more information or to schedule an audition, contact Director of Production, Wesley Houston, at whouston@nebraskashakespeare.com. All actors are encouraged to audition.

Residency/Rehearsal Dates: May 18-July 5
Performance Dates: June 18 – July 5 

This year’s On The Green company will consist of 16-18 men and 4-6 women. There are Equity and non-Equity contracts available.

“This play is an exploration of opposites: Male and Female. Past and 
Present. Community and Isolation. Innocence and Experience. Wisdom
and Foolishness. Our production is a search for your other, your perfect
half. The tragedy of loss, the drama of heartache, and the comedy of best
laid plans balance each other with passion, music, and laughter."


AS YOU LIKE IT will be set in an early-20th Century England. 

The move to the Forest of Arden will be a move to Ireland, where the music and culture of that region will be used as a resource. 

The Forest (or Ireland) natives will use Irish dialects. 





“A person of color is hired to fight for our state, against people of color
like himself. The result when we incorporate different people into a previously
isolated culture? Things change. Our perceived values may be challenged
and our thoughts and actions will be engaged in a new and different way.”




OTHELLO, directed by John Hardy, will be set in the 15th Century Ottoman Empire. 

While “traditional” in aesthetic, through the casting of Othello as a Berber Moor, the goal is to explore contemporary themes and tensions that exist in the Middle East.
