Open auditions will be held for the Bard in the Barracks production of William Shakespeare’s Pericles on April 28 and May 1 at Memorial Hall on the UNB campus.
The Adventures of Pericles, the eleventh annual production of Bard in the Barracks, will be performed outdoors (previous Bard productions have taken place in Odell Park and Barracks Square, downtown Fredericton). The play will run June 22-July 3 and will be directed by Len Falkenstein. The production will be rehearsed intensively (mainly evening hours) beginning the week of May 8.
Auditions are open to the public and roles are available for male and female actors of a variety of ages. Auditions will take place from 7:30-10:00 PM Thursday, April 28 and Sunday, May 1, with callbacks from 7:30-10:00 on Tuesday, May 3. Those auditioning are strongly encouraged to familiarize themselves with the play beforehand. Auditions will consist of readings from the play. Prepared monologues may also be performed, but are not required. Appointments are not necessary, but those attending should arrive by early in the evening and be prepared to be on hand for most of the evening, depending on turnout. Training in any of music, dance, or athletics would be considered an asset for the production.
Anyone interested in auditioning who is unable to attend on either the 28th or 1st, or anyone requesting further information, should contact the director at firstname.lastname@example.org or 458-7406. Expressions of interest from persons who would like to assist with the technical demands of the production (stage management, wardrobe, set, publicity) are also welcome.
