Auditioning for The Atlanta Shakespeare Company at The Shakespeare Tavern®/Apprentice Company Info.

The ASC holds general Equity/apprentice auditions in the late spring/early summer. Our General audition dates are announced around mid-April each year.
No inquiries until specific date information is posted each year.

Audition notices are also posted with, on the Equity Hotline and on the Yahoo Groups Atlanta Theatre Mailing List.

The ASC is also represented during the Unified Auditions. Go to for more information.

We always recommend this formula for being successful at the Tavern: come see what we do. If you like it, volunteer, show your enthusiasm any way you can. Talk to our directors. Our approach to Shakespeare is unique and does require an immersion into our philosophy and aesthetic. If you haven't seen a production here, it is important that you do. There's no way to begin to know what we're really about (and how you can contribute) until then.
