"As You Like It" Play Needs Teen Performers

Bethesda, MD, United StatesID: 532854Exp: 12/12/2022
Category:Theater
Description:

Looking for performers ages 17+ for the "As You Like It" Play. Please see the details below. ONLY LOCAL TALENT WILL BE ACCEPTED. About the project: One of Shakespeare’s most beloved romantic comedies is transported to the Woodstock era as Rosalind decides to flee from her tyrannically uptight uncle to the Forest of Arden, where her free-spirited father has been banished, along with his band of hippie followers. Colorful country folk, comic, and romantic complications, the cynical observations of Jaques (“All the world’s a stage.”) and Shakespeare’s poetry make for a richer mixture than your typical rom-com. Folk and rock music popular in the 60s and 70s will be performed in place of songs from Shakespeare’s time. Rate: Unpaid. Additional info: Prepare a one-minute monologue (modern or Shakespeare) and 30 seconds of a prepared song (around 16 bars). A capella is fine or an accompanist will be provided if you bring sheet music. Guitar players are welcome. There may be readings from the script. ALL CALLBACKS WILL BE IN PERSON BY INVITATION ONLY ON DECEMBER 14th. Bring a completed audition form (see the attachment)and headshot if available. Please look at the rehearsal calendar on the audition form and come up with any conflict dates. All Auditioners, Cast, and Crew for this production must be vaccinated. Tech Week: Fri March 10 – Thu March 16. Performances at Kensington Town Hall from March 17 to April 2. If interested, please apply.
