AUDITIONS: August 27th @ 6:00 p.m.
Here are the characters for MacBeth
3 Witches: any age-must be super awesome and witchy. They are not actually bad, they
merely serve the wheel of fate. (But yeah, they do manipulate the wheel a bit)
Duncan-king of Scotland. Over 40 up to 80 or so
Malcolm-son of Duncan. 18-35 or looking like it. Good person. Loyal. smart
Sergeant/Servant/Messenger p13/82/Young Siward-16 and up
Lennox-thane of Scotland 20-50 wise to what’s going on. Sarcastic.
Ross-thane of Scotland 20-50 all around smart and good
Macbeth-usurper of the Scottish throne.25-40ish not quite a sociopath, but power mad
and eventually insane and despondent
Banquo-25-40ish Friend of Macbeth and soldier. Good man. Thoughtful
Angus-20-50 Coolest Scottish name in the play. Good guy
Lady Macbeth-total sociopath and wife of Macbeth.40-50. Yes, this is correct. We are
going domineering-older woman-marriage-of-convenience-power-hungry-manipulative-lost-a-child-rage-queen
Donalbain-brother of Malcolm, son of Duncan-18-35 smaller role. Good brother and son
Fleance- son of Banquo. 12-18 good kid
Porter/Shakespeare/Siward-comedic roles for the first two, Siward is in the final scene.
25-55. I will absolutely require the gold hoop earring for the bard. (clip on if needed)
Macduff-25-55. The only man who can kill Macbeth, and does. Loyal to a fault to his country’s welfare, not just a king.
Attendant 36/3rd Murderer/servant 19/Seyton-18-50 pivotal role and one of my favorites in the show. More on that later when I reveal my plan.

Bats-Children 4-12. From this group will also be-Bloody Child/Crowned Child, Armed Head, and Lady Macduff’s child. 4-12. Lots of kids required. Lady Macduff’s child has a beautiful scene with her before being murdered. Parents, see audition tips and also feel free to call me with questions. 985-290-0760. Julie
Lady Macduff/Gentlewoman-Wife of Macduff/caretaker to Lady Monsterbeth.. 18-45 Beautiful, funny, and sad scene with her son. Will also be gentlewoman who cares for Lady Mac
Doctor- caretaker to Lady Macbeth. 30-any age, can also be Scotsman in final scene if desired and you can change quickly.
