Actor auditions for Shakespeare’s King Lear for North Carolina’s longest running Shakespeare Festival, The Montford Park Players, will be held Saturday, July 11, and Sunday, July 12, from 1 p.m. – 4 p.m. at the Hazel Robinson Amphitheatre, in Asheville.

Those who wish to audition must bring a headshot and a resume if available, and participants may substitute a prepared monologue instead of reading directly from the script during their audition. No singing is required.

King Lear will be directed by Scott Keel and will open October 8 at the Masonic Temple.
