The Stupid Shakespeare Company


Category: Non-Equity Audition
Pay: Stipend

The Stupid Shakespeare Company in association with Otherworld Theatre Company PROUDLY presents "Picklerickicles", a satirical adaptation of one of the Bard's most controversial works "Pericles" as portrayed by the characters in the Adult Swim series "Rick & Morty".

This parody production will be cut down to approximately 90 minutes.

The Stupid Shakespeare Company is a dumb idea that has reached great critical acclaim since its launch in 2019. A recipient of the 50 Best Plays in Chicago honor from Picture this Post, as well as runner up for Best New Company in the Chicago Reader's Best of Chicago poll in 2019, the Stupid Shakespeare Company is determined to take home a Jeff Award this year by offering free tickets to anyone named Jeff and hoping they give us a trophy.

Please note most actors will play multiple roles. All roles are gender/race open. Strong mastery of impressions and experience with mask work are a plus, but not a requirement.
