Seeking Male & Female Talent for "As You Like It" Show in VA

Richmond, VA, United StatesID: 208142Exp: 12/12/2022

Casting performers for the play "As You Like It". Please see the breakdown below. ONLY MD/ DC & LOCAL TALENT WILL BE CONSIDERED. About the project: One of Shakespeare’s most beloved romantic comedies is transported to the Woodstock era as Rosalind decides to flee from her tyrannically uptight uncle to the Forest of Arden, where her free-spirited father has been banished, along with his band of hippie followers. Colorful country folk, comic, and romantic complications, the cynical observations of Jaques (“All the world’s a stage.”) and Shakespeare’s poetry make for a richer mixture than your typical rom-com. Folk and rock music popular in the 60;s and 70;s will be performed in place of songs from Shakespeare’s time. Rate: Unpaid. Additional info: NOTE: Prepare a one-minute monologue (modern or Shakespeare) and 30 seconds of a prepared song (around 16 bars).
