Casting

English Theatre Düsseldorf is casting for their upcoming Open-Air theatre production of Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet, to be performed outdoors at the beautiful Kaiserpfalz ruins in Kaiserswerth, Düsseldorf in May/June 2021.


We are looking for actresses from all backgrounds and nationalities. Accents and dialects are absolutely fine, but fluency of the English language is especially important. Training and experience in performing Shakespeare is preferred.


Lady Capulet - Female - 40 - 60 years old.


Lady Montague - Female - 40 - 60 years old.



We will be working on a profit-share basis, splitting all profit from ticket sales (after expenses have been covered) between the cast and creatives.


The performance dates for the project are 29th May - 9th June 2021, with rehearsals running from 27th April - 28th May 2021. There will be a total of 13 performances (including matinees).


If you would like to be considered for a role in this project, we ask that you send us a self-tape audition over to info@english-theatre-duesseldorf.de, performing a Shakespeare monologue of your choice, in English, no longer than 2 minutes long.
