The Complete Works of Shakespeare (abridged)
by Adam Long, Daniel Singer and Jess Winfield

 

Directed by Keri McClain

 

Runs: Jan 6-22, 2017

Rehearsals: Nov 1 - Jan 5

 

Audition Times

  • Saturday, Oct 29, 12:00-2:00 pm
  • Sunday, Oct 30, 7:00-9:00 pm

Available Roles

We are looking for 3 brave actors, male or female, who are highly energetic with sharp comedic timing and able to execute a fast-paced, physically demanding show. Auditions will include cold readings from the script and improvisation. Please come dressed to move. Improv experience is a bonus, while Shakespearian experience may actually be a hinderance.

Audition Requirements

  • A current headshot and resume are helpful but not required.
  • A monologue is not required; auditions will be cold readings from the script.
  • Bring a detailed list of conflicts for Nov and Dec.

Synopsis

Three "terrible" actors decide to perform all 37 of Shakespeare's plays (in comically shortened or merged form) in 97 minutes. Laden with physical comedy, fast and furious entrances and exits, popular and local references, and the actors changing costumes, characters and plays at a hilarious pace, this is a wild and fun introduction to Shakespeare's canon which is accessible to all!

“PITHIER THAN PYTHON. IRRESISTIBLE.”
– New York Times

“STUPENDOUS, ANCHORLESS JOY!”
– The Times of London

"This is a delightfully funny play about a family dealing with one member in personal turmoil who comes to them seeking comfort, but turns into a monumental pain in the butt. The situation is real, the humor is real, but so is the sense of a family in turmoil trying to regain the warmth and love of the season."
– Lancaster Intelligencer

Location
