audition notice - RICHARD III - Grassroots Shakespeare - September 10

from our friends at Grassroots Shakespeare:

Come join Grassroots Shakespeare Arizona's production of Richard III!

We are and original practice, outdoor Shakespeare Company. We like to make Shakespeare fun and accessible to everyone!

We want YOU to perform in Richard III!

Auditions will be held from 1-4pm. Saturday, September 10

*Please prepare to stay the whole time.* Prepare a Shakespearean monologue about 1 minute long. Bring your headshot and resume. Have fun with it!

[Rehearsals will be 6:30-10pm Mon-Fri starting Oct. 10th. Plus one Sat. rehearsal 10-2pm on the 15th. Shows are Fri. & Sat. nights Oct. 21st thru Nov. 5th at 7:30pm. ]

Auditions, rehearsals and performances will be at Dobson Ranch Park. 2359 S Dobson Rd, Mesa, Arizona 85202

We set up our beautiful stage near the lake northeast of the library. (The last performance weekend will be elsewhere. We will explain.)

We do things differently! We freely cross-gender cast and cross-type cast. We work as an ensemble without a director. Everyone can input ideas. We interact with the audience and encourage back-talk, cheering and booing. Similar to the Elizabethan era, we only use a small rehearsal time. We focus on telling the story in the simplest, most entertaining way.

See you then!
