Auditions for As You Like It!

Sand Lake Center for the Arts- Circle Theatre Players announces open auditions for

As You Like It

Written by William Shakespeare

Directed by Barbara Leavell Smith

The Play will be set in the late 1960’s

Audition dates are Sunday, January 8, 7 PM, Monday, January 9, 7 PM

Roles Available: A wide range, both male and female, ages 16 – 80. We are open to creative casting as far as age, gender, ethnicity, etc.

For Auditions: We will not be reading from the script, prepared monologues (not Shakespeare) welcome, but not required. We will use modern scenes, improv and interviews as audition material.


Our work will generally be inspired by the philosophy and traditions of Shakespeare & Co. in Lenox, where Barbara trained.


There are 3 good acting roles for musicians, and we want to have those same actors involved throughout with incidental music. Ideally, we are looking for an acoustic group with portable instruments, but could also make it work with a “troubadour” plus a duo.

Rehearsals: Text work in March, 1 -2 rehearsals per week. Blocking in April (Schedule based on cast availability) Run – Thrus in May, there will be rehearsals on one weekend day.

Production dates: June 2, 3, 4, 8, 9, 10, & 11, 2017.

No appointment necessary.
