About shakespeare on tour

Shakespeare On Tour is now in its 35th year bringing a 55-minute version of Shakespeare plays to schools, libraries, and communities. Five actors/educators perform multiple roles and often teach 1-hour post-show Playshops. This is an actor-managed tour, with the cast doing their own driving, set up, and break down at each location. We tour all over California, usually 1-3 shows per day at 1 or 2 different locations. Most shows are Monday-Friday daytime, but there are some evening and weekend shows.

Who's reviewing your audition video
