The Hedgepig Ensemble
Ensemble members are the heart of Hedgepig, and we take building our ensemble of warm, motivated individuals very seriously - we are creating an artistic home. We are currently seeking union and non-union men and women (18 years and up) to join our growing company. We enthusiastically encourage actors of color to apply as well as actors over 40 years old.
If you are interested in joining the ensemble, please carefully review our mission and the ensemble values below. If you feel that you would be a good fit, please complete the short application below.
Auditions are held 2-3 times throughout the year. To be considered, please submit a thoughtful application below. All actors will be asked to perform a short Shakespearean monologue (in verse) which showcases skill with text, not to exceed two minutes.
Questions? Feel free to email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Hedgepig is an ensemble-based theatre company in Brooklyn working at the intersection of sweat, scholarship, and soul. We value a uniquely rigorous, physical, and collaborative approach to classically inspired texts. Through management and artistic opportunities, Hedgepig seeks to nurture and amplify the voice of women in theatre. By bringing audience and artists together in a communal experience, we inspire journeys toward empathy, equality and a holistic human experience.
