Seeking a Deaf Female Actor 
Idaho Shakespeare Festival’s 2015 Idaho Theater for Youth Tour. Click here for info on the production.

Paid 13-week contract, beginning February 2nd and ending May 1st of 2015, all happening in Boise and surrounding parts of Idaho. This is a nationwide search – if selected, you will be flown to Boise and we’ll arrange your lodging in addition to your salary. There are 3 hearing actors in the play that would tour with this show as well. The first 3 weeks of the contract are rehearsal, and the rest of the 10 weeks is the actual touring all over the state of Idaho and performing the play in elementary schools. We have contracted with a professional performing arts interpreter, who will be with the cast during most of the rehearsal process.

Actor must be 21 years or older, female, look young, and be able to drive. This is a non-equity tour, therefore we cannot cast an equity actor.

If you are interested please upload an audition video (can be any monologue in ASL) to YouTube and e-mail the link along with a headshot and resume to info@idahoshakespare.org. Any questions can be directed to the same e-mail address.
