AUDITION NOTICE

 

Playhouse 22, East Brunswick’s Community Theater, will be having open auditions for our Black Box production of “the Complete Works of Shakespeare: Abridged” on Monday, February 13 and Wednesday, February 15 at 7:30 p.m. Callbacks by invitation will be held on Thursday, February 16 at 7:30 p.m.

The show is written by Adam Long, Daniel Singer, and Jess Winfield, directed by Jennifer Moffett, and runs from April 28- May 7, Fridays and Saturdays at 8 p.m. and Sundays at 3 p.m. Auditions will be held at the East Brunswick Community Arts Center, 721 Cranbury Road, East Brunswick, NJ 08816.

The play is part of the theater’s On the Edge series, designed as an opportunity for directors to present lesser-known or smaller works and to emphasize the play and the acting over more technical theatrical elements. The performance space will be the community room at the theater, which will be transformed into a black-box space with stage lighting and sound.

We are looking for 3 actors, male or female, 18 years or older, who are willing to take on the challenge of taking on all 37 of Shakespeare’s plays (plus the sonnets!). Actors cast must be able to move and execute a fast-paced, physically demanding show. Any improv experience is a bonus but not required. Need to prepare a Shakespearean monologue in an unconventional way. Additional talents and skills welcomed!

Auditions are on a first come/first serve basis. No appointments necessary. No paid stipends will be available.

Questions can be emailed to compshakespeare@playhouse22.org or by calling (732) 254-3939.
