12/18/19 – Auditions for THE COMPLETE WORKS OF WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE (ABRIDGED)[REVISED] on Dec. 30
Open auditions will be held for Points North’s production of The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (abridged)[revised] on Monday, December 30, 6:30-9 pm at the Recreational Enrichment Center, 1540 Sawdust Rd in The Woodlands.
Adult actors of any gender and ethnicity are encouraged to audition for the three relevant roles. Please bring a headshot and resume if available, and be prepared to cold-read from the script, as well as have a 1-2 minute comedic monologue prepared.
The production will have six performances; two a day (3pm and 8pm) on Feb 1, 8, and 15. Rehearsals will take place in The Woodlands Mon thru Thur evenings throughout January. Because this is a three-person show where all are on stage the entire performance, rehearsal conflicts should be kept to a bare minimum.
TCWoWS(a)[r] is the hilarious play where three actors attempt to perform everything the Bard ever wrote in less than two hours. Stamina, a love for both Shakespeare and comedy, and the ability to provide numerous characterizations are paramount considerations in the audition.
