Exciting news on the casting front!
We're thrilled to announce that Bob Frazer will be back on the Studio Stage at Bard for our 25th Anniversary season in 2014.
After taking a year away from Bard while he pursued other projects (including his recent work as Jay Gatsby in Theatre Calgary's The Great Gatsby, Bob will appear in next season's productions of Bill Cain's Equivocation and Shakespeare's Cymbeline.
Have we got a treat for you!
As many of you know, the Bard family is large and comprised of many people - one such member is Terence Strachan (pen name T.G. Barker), a night watchman at Bard and a very talented cartoonist.
Terence has been wokring at Bard since 2002 and since 2004, he has been creating a comic series entitled 'Guard on the Beach'.
Auditioning at Bard is unlike other theatre companies: there’s a lot of scheduling and cooperation involved because of our having two repertory companies, Mainstage and Studio Stage, and the fact that actors need to fit two roles.
The process begins nearly a year in advance of the upcoming season – Bard’s general audition notice goes out in June and general auditions are held in July. We receive resumes year-round and these are kept on file until the creative team is ready to go through them.
I know, I know, autumn is here. Bard is over (*sob), it’s raining out and you wish you could recapture those amazing moments you spent with us this summer. Well, here’s a way to do just that!
The actors and production team you saw this summer at Bard are busy year-round on projects around Vancouver and across Canada. Here are a few of the productions you can catch some Bardies at this season:
Bard’s tents may be down for the season, but you don’t need to go without your Shakespeare fix. The National Theatre of Great Britain has come up with a great series called National Theatre Live, now in its fourth season, which gives theatre fans all over the world a chance to take in its fantastic productions through film at movie theatres.
