-------------
The American Shakespeare Center (ASC) casts troupes of ensemble actors. All actors will be cast in each of the plays in a season of rotating repertory and each actor will play a variety of roles, large and small. All actors must have strong classical training and experience. Musical ability is a plus.
The American Shakespeare Center seeks actors of all shapes, sizes, colors, and abilities. We frequently cast women as male characters and sometimes men as female characters. We cast actors of color in any/all roles. We believe that Shakespeare's plays tell the stories of all of us and we want our casting to reflect that.
