Dallas, Texas (PressExposure) January 16, 2012 -- The winter of our discontent will soon come to an end, because Shakespeare Dallas is bringing Shakespeare in the Park back for its 41th year. Open auditions for this season's three plays will be held January 21-22. Performances will include the Shakespeare classics Twelfth Night, Coriolanus and Macbeth, directed by Shakespeare Dallas' executive & artistic director Raphael Parry, artistic associate Rene Moreno and Stefan Novinski. Although auditions are not being held tomorrow, and tomorrow, and tomorrow, they do comprise two days of thespian try-outs for the 18 roles in each of the three plays.
"We are so grateful for the support of the Dallas community and its enthusiastic participation in Shakespeare in the Park year after year," said Parry. "We rely on our actors and actresses to bring these plays to life, which they so wonderfully do from their very first audition to the final curtain call."
Aspiring Dallas-area actors and actresses must set up an appointment with the Shakespeare Dallas team to secure an audition on Saturday, January 21st or Sunday, January 22nd. All interested candidates can contact Shakespeare Dallas directly, and must bring two copies of current headshots and resume, and be prepared to perform a Shakespeare monologue up to 1 ½ minutes in length. Auditions will go on from 11:00am-5:00pm on both days.

Shakespeare Dallas aspires to use the works of William Shakespeare as a catalyst for creating unparalleled artistic and educational programs that are meaningful and enriching for the community it serves throughout North Texas.
Inspired by the egalitarian nature of the New York Shakespeare Festival, Robert "Bob" Glenn started The Shakespeare Festival of Dallas in 1971 as a free summer Shakespeare Festival. The company serves the community as one of North Texas' most treasured cultural institutions and the area's only producer of an education program focused on teaching Shakespeare.
