Bard in the Barracks’ 2015 season will feature two productions:
a remount of the company’s 2014 production of Hamlet in Odell Park AND
a new production of Romeo and Juliet staged in Barracks Square!
Auditions for both plays will be held on April 28 and 29, with all roles in Romeo and Juliet and a small number of roles in Hamlet to be cast.
Both plays will run in repertory from June 18-July 5. The plays will be directed by Len Falkenstein and will be rehearsed intensively (mainly evening and weekend hours) beginning the week of May 3.
Open to the public with roles available for male and female actors of a variety of ages, auditions will take place at Memorial Hall, UNB from 7:30-10:00 PM on Tuesday, April 28 and Wednesday, April 29, with callbacks from 7:30-10:00 PM on Friday, May 1. Those auditioning are strongly encouraged to familiarize themselves with the play(s) beforehand. Auditions will consist of readings from the plays; prepared monologues may also be performed, but are not required. Appointments are not necessary, but those auditioning should be prepared to be on hand for most of the evening you attend, depending on turnout. Training in any of music, dance, singing, stage combat, or circus skills would be considered an asset for the productions.
Anyone interested in auditioning who is unable to attend on these dates, or anyone requesting further information, should contact the director at firstname.lastname@example.org or 458-7406. Enquiries from persons who may be interested in assisting with the technical demands of the production (stage management, wardrobe, set, props, publicity) are also welcome.
