Auditions for Shakespeare's classic battle of wits "Much Ado About Nothing".
This will be our 5th annual Summer Shakespeare show!
Callbacks will follow immediately after as needed.
Please bring your headshot and resume.
Have a monologue prepared (Shakespearean preferred, does not need to be from Much Ado) and be prepared to read from the script if you are needed for callbacks following immediately after.
The show is performed outdoors in the beautiful Huntington Beach Central Park amphitheater with the aesthetic of a "performing troupe." As such, all talents and skills beyond Shakespearean acting are encouraged and considered for casting purposes.
All roles are open. No pre-casting. All roles are considered gender-blind and color-blind. Age is not definable through a cast list, roles are open to any age (18+) provided they fill the purpose of the production (i.e. you are not too old/ young to play [fill in character name here])
Please arrive with all conflicts prepared. Conflicts after casting will not be tolerated.
By means of "noting" (which, in Shakespeare's day, sounded similar to "nothing" as in the play's title, and which means gossip, rumour, and overhearing), Benedick and Beatrice are tricked into confessing their love for each other, and Claudio is tricked into rejecting Hero at the altar on the erroneous belief that she has been unfaithful. At the end, Benedick and Beatrice join forces to set things right, and the others join in a dance celebrating the marriages of the two couples
