We're pleased to announce open auditions for Bards in a Box!

Date: Saturday, August 20, 2016, 2:00 - 4:00 pm

Location: Unity Church of Birmingham, 2803 Highland Avenue South, Birmingham, AL 35205

Open to: All actors or aspiring actors, ages 6-25. Preference in casting is given to actors under the age of 18. 

Audition procedure:

Bring the following items with you to auditions:

  • A memorized monologue. This monologue should be no shorter than 30 seconds, no longer than 3 minutes. Shakespeare is preferred but not required.
  • A head shot. This doesn't have to be a professional head shot, but needs to accurately represent what you look like. 
  • A resume. Highlight your acting and/or dancing experience, but please keep in mind that Bards of Birmingham does not require acting experience in order to be cast. A committed novice actor would be preferred over a lackluster experienced actor. 

Actors will be called back one at a time to perform for audition judge(s). If casting decisions can't be concluded with an initial round of auditions, actors may be asked to come back for a callback audition round which will include cold readings from the script.


For every actor under 18, at least one parent must be present for a mandatory parent meeting on Monday, August 22, at 6:30 pm. .


Rehearsals will take place on Monday and Wednesday nights from 6-7:30, August through October, until the Alabama Renaissance Faire the weekend of October 22-23.
