OTE Theatre Productions returns to Laguna Hills Community Center for their sixth consecutive Shakespeare in the Hills!

We are preparing for our upcoming production by holding auditions the first week of June.

IMG_4758By appointment only. Please email aurorajlong@gmail.com to set up your appointment to audition for Shakespeare in the Hills 2018. Details for your audition will be emailed to you. Thank you!

Auditions will consist of performing a Shakespearean monologue. No need to have the monologue memorized. Please choose your own. You can use the following website as a resource:


You can do a monologue from any show, for any role or gender. Does not need to be memorized.

If you have an additional skill you would like to showcase, please come prepared to share it or tell us about it. We are looking for any skill that might be displayed on a vaudeville stage- juggling, mime, musician, vocalist, puppetry, ability to create multiple characters quickly, etc.

Thank you for sharing your talent with us!

OTE presents Shakespeare in the Hills 2018

Directed by Aurora Culver
Rehearsals and performances at the Laguna Hills Community Center
25555 Alicia Pkwy, Laguna Hills, CA

Auditions June 4th & 5th, Callbacks June 6th
Show rehearses June 11th-August 2nd, 2018
Performances August 3rd & 5th, 10th & 11th, 17th & 18th
(Possibility of additional performances at a second location.)

Actors not only perform but also act as crew members. Everyone is expected to be present for his/her performance evenings and participate in setting up the show.We must set-up and breakdown the set each night. It is a team effort where each person is assigned a few tasks. It’s a lot of fun!

A COMEDY OF ERRORS is well known for being a story of two sets of twins with zany incidents and characters. After being separated as a child from his mother and twin brother, Antiphons of Syracuse has set out in search of his lost family with his trusted servant Dromio at his side. Chaos ensues when they arrive in the land where their twin brothers live, and all are constantly mistaken for the other! This summer we are bringing the show to life in the world of vaudeville, from slapstick comedy to musical acts, from burlesque to acrobatics.


We are looking for a diverse cast- accepting auditions from actors of all ethnicities and from ages 10 to 99. We are approaching this production with blind casting- roles can be played by any gender, any body type, any ethnicity. Characters will remain as written (M/F), but are open for anyone to play the role. Actors may be asked to play more than one role.
