Classical Actors Ensemble is accepting actor, designer, and stage manager submissions for our 2021-22 season.

Productions may include:

  • a Fall 2021 indoor production
  • a Winter/Spring 2022 school-day educational tour
  • a Summer 2022 parks tour


We are seeking adult, non-union performers of all ages. We particularly encourage submissions from actors who:

  • are Black, Indigenous, or People of Color
  • play musical instruments well
  • have experience with classical text or heightened language, or
    are especially seeking to gain experience with classical text or heightened language


Teens 16+ are welcome as interns and ensemble members.

Stipends paid to non-ensemble performers generally range $250 – 1,200, varying by role and production. Ensemble members are not guaranteed stipends.

Designer stipends range $300 – 800, depending on duties. Stage manager stipends range $600 – 1,800.


We would like actors to submit a link to a video of a monologue from an English play, written 1580 – 1642, a minute and a half or less, preferably in verse. You may include a second piece if you wish, as long as the total time is no longer than three minutes. The second piece should provide contrast and may be contemporary if you feel it shows your best work. Two classical pieces is also perfectly fine.

Interested performers should please fill out this form and submit their materials here
