Bard on the Beach receives a large number of submissions each year, and as such is unable to offer audition times to all who apply. Principal criteria for inclusion in general auditions includes completion of classical theatre training and Shakespeare performance experience. Bard on the Beach welcomes and encourages submissions from artists of diverse backgrounds. Preference will be given to artists who have not had an audition in the last two years.
