Davidson Community Players to Hold Open Auditions for The Complete Works of Shakespeare (Abridged)
Davidson Community Players is seeking three energetic actors to perform all 37 of William Shakespeare’s plays in 97 minutes for their 2019 bonus show, “The Complete Works of Shakespeare (Abridged).”
The play was written by Adam Long, Daniel Singer and Jess Winfield and will be directed by Christian Casper. Auditions will be held Sunday, Feb. 10 and Monday, Feb. 11 at 7 p.m. at DCP’s Actor’s Lab located at 20700 N. Main Street, Suite 112 in Cornelius. The production will run March 28 to April 7 at the Armour Street Theatre in Davidson.
Auditions will consist of cold readings from the script and improvisation exercises. Actors should be prepared to stay for the entire audition, and only need to come to one of the audition sessions. Please bring a headshot and a resume. Perusal copies of the script (with a $10 deposit) will be available at the DCP office. Please call the box office at 704-892-7953 to arrange pick up.
Three madcap actors weave their wicked way through all of Shakespeare’s comedies, histories, and tragedies in one wild ride that will leave you breathless and helpless with laughter. This irreverent, fast-paced romp through the Bard’s play is London’s longest-running comedy.
Roles: This play features any combination (male or female) of three actors in a variety of roles. All ages and ethnicities are welcome to audition.
Please see the DCP website for our full casting policy.
