Details:

Synopsis:  Anytime you hear “Shakespeare comedy” you’re guaranteed at least one marriage and quite likely a case of mistaken identity. Twelfth Night is no exception, featuring twins, separated and feared dead by each other after a shipwreck. The sister takes on a male persona to survive, thus allowing for the mistaken identity, and antics ensue. But all is not bright, funny, and loving in Illyria as the Fool makes mischief and lower nobility set up a terrible prank on a proud servant and fleece a member of their class in the process.

Audition Details:

  • Looking for actors of all genders, races, and ages (18 & up). Genders below indicate the characters’ genders, not necessarily the actors'.
  • The play will use Shakespeare’s language but be played in a contemporary setting.
  • Please read up on the play if you are unfamiliar with it and find some information on the character(s) you might like to play.

 Audition requirements:

  1. A 1-2 minute Shakespearean monologue, memorized

Gender & play do not matter; pick something you both understand and like; make a bold choice. (Sincerely, two minutes is enough.)

  1. A cold reading from the script

Make sure you understand the piece and the words in it before you perform it; feel free to ask questions. You will have the chance to read and review it before the audition.
