UNTITLED IMMERSIVE SHAKESPEARE PRODUCTION
REBEL AND MISFITS PRODUCTIONS will be holding equity and non-equity auditions for our upcoming Immersive production on June 22nd and June 23rd, with callbacks (if needed) on June 24th. The show is set to tentatively open on October 31st and run through November 18th. We are choosing to keep the piece itself a secret, and if cast, actors will be asked and will sign a waiver agreeing not to reveal the title of the production until they are expressly told they may. It IS a Shakespeare piece and will be extremely modern and will involve a lot of movement and very rich character-building. There will be some heavy dance elements – however we are looking more for people who can really rock out on a dancefloor than who have formal training.
Please prepare one dramatic Shakespeare monologue – it can be from a history or a tragedy. We will be performing this piece in a very modern way, so please keep that in mind when rehearsing your piece. If you have a lot of Shakespeare training – great! If you don’t, that’s cool! We are more interested in seeing how you modernize it and make it your own than we are in technique. Choose the length that suits you and that you have time to fully prepare for. We may work the piece during your audition.
We very much want to see every type and every color and every body possible. We are VERY committed to creating a diverse cast. If you have worked with us before, please feel free to attend, as this piece will be done in a different style than either of our previous immersive projects. If you haven’t, we really, REALLY want to meet you! All positions with REBEL AND MISFITS are PAID positions as we deeply respect the time and effort our artists bring to this collaborative work.
Please email Artistic Director Kelly Hummert at firstname.lastname@example.org with your headshot and resume, availability, and she will email you back with a time slot and location for the auditions. We expect to hold them Friday (June 22nd) from 11AM – 9PM and on Saturday (June 23rd) from 11AM – 7PM. If needed, callbacks will be held on June 24th in the evening. Auditions will be attended by Artistic Director, Kelly Hummert, and Associate Artistic Director, Jordan Woods.
We can’t wait to meet all of you!
