The Prague Shakespeare Festival, Guy Roberts Artistic Director, will be holding open call auditions for its 2010 Artistic Company, Wednesday February 24th 2010 at the Prague Film School Studio from 6pm – 10pm.
All actors should bring a photo and resume and present one memorized Shakespeare monologue not exceeding 2 minutes. Actors should be prepared to stay immediately following in the case they are called back for PSF’s production of Romeo and Juliet playing May 25-27, 2010 at the Open-Air Theater in Vyšehrad. Sides from Romeo and Juliet will be provided for all actors who are called back.
Actors who have previously worked with PSF or Guy Roberts and who are interested in casting opportunities may contact Guy Roberts directly, bypassing the general audition and schedule a callback. All others must come to the general audition and then be invited to callbacks.

All actors will be seen on a first-come, first-serve basis. Directors, Designers and Stage Managers may also come to the open call to submit resumes and portfolios.
All actors, directors, designers and stage managers who work with PSF are members of the PSF seasonal artistic company. The seasonal artistic company, under the guidance of the Artistic Director, work constantly together to explore a cohesive classical style. The Festival provides an ensemble atmosphere for extended theatrical exploration wherein company members work as a group to develop skills and to perfect their craft through the continuity of several productions and ongoing training workshops. The quality of commitment demanded of the company members fosters a cohesiveness and intensity of approach to the Festival's classical repertoire. In addition to performing, training and educational activities all company members work behind-the-scenes and assist in the day-to-day administration of PSF.
I'm a casting director, and acting coach working from Central Europe (Prague to be specific.) I've decided to host this blog to keep actors and any interested parties updated on my activities, as well as casting news and things of general interest to actors. Please feel free to respond with any relevant posts.
