Based on the screenplay by Marc Norman and Tom Stoppard

The FIRST round of auditions is virtual (over TEAMS) on Friday, August 19th at 7PM, with in-person callbacks to follow MONDAY AUGUST 22nd at the BCTC Newtown campus in room 005.

FOR THE VIRTUAL AUDITIONS - Please prepare a 1-minute selection of your choosing. You may select something from the show, or from another source. It is recommended that you have the piece memorized, though you may use a script if necessary. The script for SHAKESPEARE IN LOVE will be on reserve in the Newtown library beginning on August 15th. IF YOU PLAN TO AUDITION, please email me at to request an audition form and further instructions on how to access the auditions through the TEAMS site.
Over that weekend, we will notify the folks we need for callbacks the following Monday evening at 6:30PM.

ALL roles are open and available. We are looking for a diverse cast, and all ages from teens through 60s are encouraged to audition. Our auditions are open to ALL BCTC students, faculty, staff, AND the general public.
The show will be rehearsed in Lexington at the BCTC Newtown campus, WITH REHEARSAL BEGINNING IMMEDIATELY AFTER THE AUDITIONS.
The production will be performed at the BCTC Winchester Campus outdoor amphitheater. Performances will take place the last weekend in September/first of October. If you have any questions, feel free to contact me at the email address above.
