Auditions: Goodnight, Desdemona. (Good Morning Juliet.)
July 28, 2022 @ 4:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Be part of the fun by auditioning for the second show in the S3 season: Goodnight Desdemona. (Good Morning, Juliet.) by Ann-Marie MacDonald.
Directed by Megan Wiltshire, and assistant directed by Rebecca Craven, this exuberant comedy and revisioning of Shakespeare’s Othello and Romeo and Juliet. You’ll travel from a dusty office in Queen’s University, into the fraught and furious worlds of two of Shakespeare’s best-known tragedies. A little bit of Alice in Wonderland and a lot of Shakespeare, this show will have you laughing at how upside-down their worlds become when an outsider tries to “fix” it. If you ever find yourself yelling at the TV to stop a character from making a bad decision, this show is for you!
Show dates are September 8-25 in both Riverfront Park and Manito Park. Rehearsals start August 1. Exact rehearsal dates will be available at the auditions.
Please prepare a comedic monologue of your choice–2 minutes tops. Due to the short notice, it can be read.
Auditions will be from 4:30-6:30, with callbacks at 7pm the same night. You can sign up for auditions at https://forms.gle/AnpvkbiHjCvyZkFdA or learn more on the show page.
All actors will receive a stipend of $200.
We are also looking for a stage manager, potential designers, and run crew–each position will receive a stipend. For tech positions, message us.
