We are seeking to cast actors from marginalized genders (which may include Cis Women, Trans folks, GNC, and Non-Binary folks, etc.). While we are open to actors of all ethnicities and identities, we strongly encourage actors with disabilities and BIPOC actors to submit.

This production is taking on questions of how to make theater inclusive for disabled actors, and we are committed to accessibility in all stages of the production. In this spirit, we are seeking actors with disabilities to be represented in this cast beyond the role of Richard III. We define disability broadly to mean any kind of body/mind that doesn't conform to dominant understandings of what a body/mind should be or do, and we are open to a range of disability identities. Disability status will not preclude you from being considered for a role with stage combat. Previous stage combat experience is not a prerequisite for casting consideration.

All roles are available except for the title role of Richard of Gloucester.
