The Santa Clarita Shakespeare Festival performs at their outdoor home at Towsley Canyon in Santa Clarita. The production opens July 14 and runs three weekends (Saturdays and Sundays) in July. There will be a preview performance at the Festival’s Gala fundraiser on July 13 at a site to be revealed closer to the date.
Additionally, SCSF is looking for theatre artists for the production, including a scenic artist, a lighting designer, associate festival producer, technical director and a theatrical puppet artist.
For this unique rendition of Macbeth, actors are expected to prepare a two-minute classical monologue and be familiar with the play. Actors interested in auditioning should contact the company at firstname.lastname@example.org.
