“Pride And Prejudice” includes roles for about 10 actors, age 18 and older, and “Macbeth” requires about 20 actors, age 12 and older.
Auditions will be held Sunday from 5:30 to 9:30 p.m. and Monday from 6:40 to 9:30 p.m.

Those auditioning for either or both productions are required to prepare two approximately 1-minute contrasting monologues — one contemporary and one classic.
For those auditioning for “Macbeth” only, the classic monologue should be Shakespeare.
British Received Pronunciation accents will be used for “Pride And Prejudice,” but are not required for performing the monologue.
Run dates for “Pride And Prejudice” are May 1-3, May 8-10, and May 15-17, with a special pay-what-you-can preview on April 30.
Based on the book by Jane Austen, adapted by Kate Hamill, and directed by Pete Benson, this isn’t your grandmother’s Austen.
Bold, surprising, boisterous, and timely, this “Pride And Prejudice,” for a new era explores the absurdities and thrills of finding your perfect (or imperfect) match in life.
