Presented by Marin Shakespeare Company and Downtown San Rafael Arts District at 514 Fourth Street, San Rafael CA

Auditions: Marin Shakespeare Teen Touring Company

A unique opportunity for teenagers to create and tour Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet with a professional director.

Sunday, December 9:  1:00 – 3:30 pm
Wednesday, December 12:  6:30 – 9:30 pm

514 Fourth Street, San Rafael

The Teen Touring Company is a unique opportunity for teenagers (age 13+) to create and tour a 1-hour+ version of a Shakespeare play. Students work with a professional director, and then perform on tour at schools and senior centers in March.

Romeo and Juliet is one of Shakespeare’s most famous plays.  Its teenage protagonists fight, fall in love, and make difficult decisions — all while speaking some of the greatest poetry ever written!

The Teen Touring Company will perform at 12 to 15 venues. Students will be expected to miss three days of school for in-schools performances; a complete performance schedule is available on our website.  All students who sign up will be cast; please plan to attend auditions to determine your role.

To sign up to audition, contact the Education Director (see phone and email below). You may also just show up on the day of auditions, but we prefer to know you are coming in advance.

For the audition, please prepare to perform a Shakespearean monologue of 1 to 2 minutes, from any play. We prefer that you memorize the monologue, but it is acceptable to read it if you prefer. You will be participating in warm-up exercises and other group acting activities. You will also be given scenes from the play to read; you will have time to look over any scenes before you are asked to read. We strongly encourage all actors to plan to attend both days of auditions. If you cannot attend both days, or cannot attend auditions, please let us know. Typically, everyone who auditions is cast.


Tuition: $600

You may pay tuition before, at, or after Auditions. Need-based scholarships are available for all Marin Shakespeare Company classes; please call if you have any questions.

To pay the tuition using a credit card, go to Teen Touring Company Enrollment.

You may also mail a check to: Marin Shakespeare Company, P. O. Box 4053, San Rafael, CA 94913.

Call us if you have questions or to sign up to audition.
