HAMLET & ZOMBIES Auditions

Directed by Abeth Spencer
A Youth Production (ages 8-17)

STARLIGHT COMMUNITY THEATER continues the 2021-22 Season with HAMLET AND ZOMBIES by Will Averill. This youth play is for actors ages 8-17. Eight performances are scheduled for October 8-17, 2021 with the intention of selling tickets to capacity.  


PLEASE SIGN UP FOR AN AUDITION SLOT for Saturday, August 7th.

  • Submit a completed audition form at  https://forms.gle/jSfE7F6m38gL8Rfh6 at least one day prior to the audition. You can also send a headshot and resume if you have them to [email protected]
  • All actors will choose one of the monologues (found in "Related Files" below) to read and perform at auditions. These do NOT need to be memorized, but you should practice to become familiar with your choice. You may perform any of the monologues. You do not need to stick to your own gender! If you are invited to callbacks, you may be asked to read a second monologue.
  • Also at auditions, there will be theater games! Please be prepared to work together in a group and to do some zombie movement.  
  • If needed, call-backs will be held on Sunday, August 8th at 7pm.
  • There is a $150 production fee for everyone cast in the show due in full by September 17, 2021.

The Story:

To be undead, or not to be undead? That is Hamlet's question. In this fast-paced retelling of Shakespeare's famous tragedy, Hamlet must not only uncover the truth about his father's death and mother's remarriage, but do so while fighting off an undead zombie invasion! If that wasn't enough, his love life is complicated, his friends are seeing dead people ....and where did all these Norwegians come from?
