WHAT TO EXPECT!!!
We are not like other companies where you perform in a theater. There are no dressing rooms or stages. We perform everywhere! Here's a list of just a few of the types of places we've performed in:
So expect the unexpected. We are looking for actors who are flexible, team players, and who can roll with just about any situation. We work with small cast sizes, and all actors help with all aspects of production. We set up and break down our set every night. It can be hot, muggy, or cold, and sometimes rain happens. But, the casts who have the most fun are the ones who laugh at everything, and just take joy in the experience of performing outside and can roll with the unexpected nature of outdoor Shakespeare.
Where and when are rehearsals? Most of our actors reside in Manhattan (although we LOVE Jersey actors too!!) so this year, rehearsals will take place in NYC at a studio space. Rehearsals occur weeknights (6-9pm) and some weekend days about 3 - 4 times per week.
UPDATE (February 2022) Due to COVID19: this season, the first two weeks of rehearsals will be held virtually, with moving into outdoor rehearsals after Easter. we hope to have as many outdoor rehearsals as possible, for ventilation, but we realize that some may need to move indoors due to weather.
When and where are shows? Northern, NJ, and our final show is a day trip to Stratford. If you want to know more about specific venues, check out our venues page. Shows occur weeknights and weekends about 4 -5 times a week for a 3 week run. Please note that call times are usually 2 hours before the show time. This is to allow for travel to the venue.
PAY? Rehearsals are unpaid, but we try and schedule everyone with consideration of outside conflicts and will not call you in on an unnecessary night where you are not needed. Transportation from Jersey City and to and from all show locations is provided by the company.
ANY OTHER ADDITIONAL PAY: Actors are given a small stipend - the amount of which varies per show. Unfortunately, we are not able to afford a living wage for actors, but we do offer a stipend and cover transportation costs to and from venues. There are many costs associated with running a theater, and we operate on a shoe string budget. Please do not email us asking for additional pay.
DO YOU WORK WITH EQUITY? No. EMC points are not offered.
HOUSING? No, all of our performers are local.
