The South Dakota Shakespeare Festival (SDSF) seeks non-Equity performers for its ninth outdoor season of free Shakespeare in Vermillion’s Prentis Park.

The Festival seeks professional actors, actor/musicians, and teaching artists from the Great Plains region and nationally to form an ensemble-based Shakespeare company for a four-week contract in Vermillion, South Dakota. All positions are paid. Actors coming from out of town will be eligible for local housing and a travel stipend. We are committed to inclusive casting that reflects and nurtures the diversity of our communities.


Music will be incorporated throughout this production. Please prepare an optional couple of bars of a song to be played, sung acapella, or self-accompanied at call-backs if you would like to be included in those components of the show.

Video Auditions will be accepted by invitation only.  Please do not submit unsolicited video auditions.
