- About KCT
Knoxville Children’s Theatre (KCT) will hold auditions on Monday, August 19 for the upcoming stage production of “Julius Caesar,” by William Shakespeare.
Caesar has returned to Rome in triumph from the war against Pompey. However, a group of conspirators is disturbed by Caesar’s increasing power and ambition. To help their cause, they persuade Brutus, a good friend of Caesar and a man well-known for his honesty, that the welfare of Rome demands that Brutus conspire against his own friend.
The audition will take place:
Monday, August 19th
4:30 AM to 7:30 PM
Knoxville Children’s Theatre
109 E. Churchwell Avenue

Monologues will be evaluated on volume, clearness of diction, and depth of emotional expression. Ability for physical transformation is a major plus.
