Bell Shakespeare – Scholarship Auditions

Bell Shakespeare Company is regarded as one of the world’s foremost contemporary Shakespearean Theatre companies. They will be performing Much Ado About Nothing in the Burnie Arts Theatre on Tuesday, 27 August 2019 at 7.30 pm.

Auditions for The John Bell Scholarship are also being held on Tuesday 30 July, from 2.30 pm. To be eligible to audition, students must be at least 16 years of age by 31 December 2019, and still be at high school full-time in 2019; and complete a registration form.

The John Bell Scholarship is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for students living in regional or remote areas, who are interested in a career as a performer. Three students are selected each year from across Australia to come to Sydney and spend a week with Bell Shakespeare. They will participate in acting masterclasses, be taught by John Bell, observe one week of Bell Shakespeare rehearsals, see live theatre and perform their winning monologue for Artistic Director Peter Evans and a Bell Shakespeare cast.
