Each year the New York City-based Oxford Shake-speare Company chooses a Shakespeare classic to be taught and performed in London & Stratford-on-Avon. Casts receive a training intensive from an OSC director, and get the rare opportunity to take hands-on Master Classes with artists from the RSC, The Globe and acclaimed drama schools. New for 2014 is a planned session with a London Casting Director or Agent. After a London performance, they journey to Stratford-on-Avon, performing the play before outdoor audiences. 

In 2014, HAMLET will be presented.


The Process: Actors in the UK submit a video audition to the OSC. Those accepted provide an application and workshop fee for the training, rehearsals, performance and master classes. In order to make the workshop more affordable, U.K. actors must get themselves to Stratford-on-Avon for the performance date and any master classes there.  They may join the coaches provided by the OSC if they plan to stay overnight in Stratford.


Lines are learnt before work begins on the play.


While the deadline is rolling, it is best to audition by Feb 1st.
