CSC2 2019 Auditions
Please read the full description and commitment of our CSC2 Program here before signing up for an audition. We will audition in NYC and MA in Fall 2018.
CSC2 is a early-career company of twelve actors that works with Commonwealth Shakespeare Company to further develop skills in classical acting through performance, artistic and professional development, and through different educational and coaching opportunities..
In the spring, CSC2 actors will work as a cohort, learning from a diverse cast of their peers, to perform one of Shakespeare’s plays for a middle and high school audience. CSC2 will convene as a group to review techniques in heightened language, then meet weekly to workshop classical monologues with these topics in mind.
During the summer, CSC2 joins an equity company in small and ensemble roles, and as understudies in CSC’s signature presentation of Free Shakespeare on the Boston Common. As part of a summer mentorship program, CSC2 actors will work with undergraduate acting Apprentices by assisting in workshops on heightened language, and facilitating weekly monologue and scene coaching sessions.
The ideal candidate for CSC2 will be interested in furthering their own training, mentorship/coaching, and occasionally acting as a representative of CSC to our stakeholders. No actors enrolled in any kind of undergraduate or graduate program in the Spring of 2019 will be seen at auditions. CSC is not able to enlist any AEA actor into the CSC2 program.
Commonwealth Shakespeare Company is an equal opportunity employer. Actors of all genders, minorities, and people with disabilities are encouraged to audition.
