Coronado Playhouse is now accepting submissions from actors interested in auditioning for their upcoming production of Mike Bartlett's modern-day masterpiece (and San Diego premiere) KING CHARLES III.

Roles for all ages (age 18 to 70), all genders, and all ethnicities. All actors are encourage to audition.

This is the San Diego premier of the Tony and Oliver Nominated show.

Note: though multiple characters are real-life figures (Prince Charles, Prince William, Prince Harry, Kate Middleton, and Camilla Parker-Bowles), we are not looking for mimicry, rather for actors that can inhabit the character and bring their point of view to life.

This is a Non-Equity production.

If you are invited to callbacks, please be prepared for a workshop setting – including some movement, text, and character work.
