Audition for Ohio Shakespeare Festival

Ohio Shakespeare Festival holds separate auditions for it's outdoor Shakespeare season and it's indoor classics season. 

A limited number of AEA contracts are available for each show. Non-union actors are paid on a sliding scale, determined by size of role, length of commitment, and time spent with company.

Ohio Shakespeare company members who have worked with the company within the past two years need not sign up for general auditions, but they must request a callback date and time by emailing

While we strongly encourage actors to attend auditions in person, we do accept video audition applications. Send headshot, resume, and relevant footage to Please also indicate if you would need housing.
