SHAKESPEARE AUDITION WORKSHOP WITH BOB MASON
Bob Mason has been the casting director at Chicago Shakespeare Theater since 2000, where his classical credits cover more than two-thirds of Shakespeare’s canon, including numerous productions with Artistic Director Barbara Gaines. We are pleased that Bob returns to demystify the casting process in this intensive Shakespeare Audition Workshop.
The first day centers on tools to make your audition pieces exciting, effective and immediate.
The second day focuses on callbacks and how to break down a Shakespeare piece in a short amount of time for clarity of text and a palpable connection to the given circumstances.
Required: Prior professional experience and training, determined by headshot and resume. We are taking applications until Friday, January 19th at which point we will let you know either way if you've been accepted into the class.
