Open auditions – The Taming of the Shrew at the cornerH

March 21, 2012

William Shakespeare’s comedy The Taming of the Shrew comes to the cornerHOUSE in June
– and you could have a part in the production.
by Moonlight theatre company, which brought its highly acclaimed production of Steven Berkoff’s East to the arts centre last year, is looking for actors to play in this Elizabethan romp.
Director Tanju Duncan said: “Without giving too much away, this will be in the style of The Only Way is Essex meets the Bard!
Open auditions will take place in workshop form at the cornerHOUSE in Douglas Road, Surbiton, on Sunday, April 1 at 5.30pm. You are also asked to prepare a two-minute Jacobean/Elizabethan speech from a play set in that period or from The Taming of the Shrew itself to perform at the audition.
“Please don’t feel you have to memorise it – just get familiar with the speech and be prepared to read it at the audition,” said Duncan.
We are looking for a few mature gentlemen for some of the roles, so please do come along and have some fun!” she added.
Cast age range is adults only (those who are 16 and who have already left school or over).
The Taming of the Shrew will be staged at the cornerHOUSE on Friday, June 29 and Saturday, June 30 at 7.45pm and then at the Rose Theatre in Kingston on July 8, 10 and 15 at 7.45pm as part of Kingston’s International Youth Arts Festival. So you must be available for those dates.
