As You Like It

 William Shakespeare’s As You Like It is a dream-like tale of faithful friends, feuding families, and lovers in disguise. Forced from their homes, Orlando, Duke Senior, his daughter Rosalind and niece Celia, escape to the Forest of Arden, a fantastical place of transformation, where all are welcomed and embraced. Lost amidst the trees, the refugees find community and acceptance under the stars.

Plague Mask Players is seeking a diverse group of fully vaccinated actors for all roles in our upcoming in-person production of As You Like It. We are actively seeking BIPOC and a variety of gender-identities. We encourage submissions from professional artists who self-identity as members of under-represented communities. Please note that this production will be complying with COVID guidelines, restrictions, and regulations.


  • Please fill out the following form at the bottom of the page and we will e-mail you with a timeslot. If you are unable to attend live auditions, please submit a video audition. Self-tapes are due by 5:00 pm on 8/29/2021.  Due to the current COVID-19 situation, if you are not fully vaccinated and past the 2-week period by the time of auditions we require you to submit your audition virtually.

  • ALL ROLES AVAILABLE. Actors 16+ encouraged to audition.  (See Character list below.)

  • Please prepare or record a polished 1-minute Shakespeare monologue. You may use a monologue of your own choosing from any Shakespeare play or one of the provided monologues. Note from the director: We understand that Shakespeare can be a bit nerve-wracking for those who do not specialize in it, so we are offering you the option of delivering your monologue on-book, if you prefer. We expect a well-prepared, committed performance whether or not your monologue is memorized. Level of memorization will not hinder your audition. CLICK HERE FOR PROVIDED MONOLOGUES

  • If you’d like to be considered for a musical role (Amiens or potentially other ensemble members), we would also like to see 30 seconds a capella of a contemporary song. You can sing or play your own instrument or both! A piano will not be provided. This musical portion is NOT required. More information under casting breakdown.

  • Attach headshot and resume to digital form. We ask that you do not bring any physical copies to your audition.
