The Hamlet Project and Shakespeare in the Park(ing Lot)

Beowulf Alley Theatre


(Tucson, AZ) Beowulf Alley Theatre announces The Hamlet Project and Shakespeare in the Park(ing Lot). We are looking for Tucson's best young actors to audition for the roles of Hamlet and Ophelia. Winners will receive a cash prize and lead roles of the play in both a live performance and a digital media presence, as well as free participation in The Hamlet Project workshops.


The Hamlet Project Workshop will take actors through an intensive course of Shakespeare's work, language, history and performance. It is an acting workshop with the specific text of Shakespeare's play that will culminate in mid-summer performances and digital media internet events. Actors will learn stage technique as well as film acting. Each actor will perform live in front of an audience, whether in Hamlet, or in two supporting productions of Shakespeare in the Park(ing Lot) and Clown Romeo and Juliet. 


Actors may audition for the Project through video post or individual audition at the theatre on Saturday April 2nd from 10am to 2pm. The workshop space is limited. 


WHEN: The Hamlet Project Workshops will begin in May with performances in June.


WHERE: Beowulf Alley Theatre, 11 S 6th Avenue in Downtown Tucson.


COST: Workshop cost is $99. Some scholarships are available. No actor should be deterred by the workshop cost. We will make every reasonable attempt to include serious students. 


WHO: Actors between the ages of 17 and 22.


Michael Fenlason will conduct the workshops. Michael is a director, actor, playwright, acting teacher, content creator, filmmaker and composer who has studied and taught acting in London, Phoenix and San Francisco. He has directed at Raw Space in New York City and The Vanbrugh Theatre in London.
