GENERAL AUDITION INFO

No appointments are needed.

Just show up and you will be seen in the order you arrive. Of course, if you're asked to stay to read and/or dance, you may be around a while.

If auditioning for a musical, prepare a brief song in the style of the show and have sheet music in the proper key. Also, bring proper footwear to dance in if needed.

For non-musicals, you will be given pre-selected sides from the script.

CALLBACKS: We often don't need to see people at a callback. Sometimes we see all we need to at the initial auditions. Not being called back does not mean you are not being considered for the production.

CASTING: We do our best to be respectful to all who audition by reaching out to those who have not been cast. We ALWAYS ask those cast to keep that information to themselves until we have reached everyone who was not cast - unfortunately, that doesn't always happens and our best efforts at sparing hard feelings are thwarted.

Generally, our rehearsals run Monday thru Thursday evenings from 7pm to 10pm.

Directed by Sara Zimmerman

Rehearsals begin week of May 12.
Additional details to follow.
  TWELFTH NIGHT is a time-honored Shakespearean comedy that involves love triangles, cross dressing, mistaken identity and a whole lot more. Shakespeare on the Green's inaugural production (2004) was presented in a traditional style.
This time, there will be a modern twist. From the raucous night life of Illyria to real time disasters, to the lives of the rich and famous, this classic tale will be played out in a fast paced, familiar, almost reality show setting.
Casting Note:
We are looking for people to embody modern archetypes. The language will remain faithful to the Bard but the character descriptions will mirror modern day equivalents to these classic characters. Please prepare a short monologue or sonnet. We are looking for a comfortability and command of the language.
Roles:
ORSINO, Duke of Illyria, a handsome, somewhat spoiled "trust fund" kid who is now the head of a major corporation.

OLIVIA, a beautiful socialite heiress with a tragic past

VIOLA, the victim of a tragedy at sea. She has lost her brother in a foreign city and goes about finding him in an unorthodox way.

SIR TOBY BELCH, Uncle to Olivia, Enjoys the joie de vivre a bit too much, in love with love, drink, carousing ...and drink.

SIR ANDREW AGUECHEEK - a suitor to Ovlia, a fop, over done but thinks he is in fashion. Not the sharpest knife in the drawer.

MALVOLIO, Steward to Olivia - Proper, old fashioned more Downton than Dynasty.

MARIA, Personal Assistant to the lady Oliva. Intelligent, fun loving, very sexy, she knows how to use her charms to get what she wants.

SEBASTIAN, Brother to Viola, victim of the same tragedy at sea. Trying to find his way home.

ANTONIO, an officer aboard the doomed vessel, Friend to Sebastian
