Actor Job for Production of "Zastrozzi"Kitchener, ON, CanadaID: 215390Exp: 2/8/2023
Casting performers to play roles in "Zastrozzi" play. Please, see the details below. About the play: Zastrozzi, the master criminal of Europe. The one they whisper about in polite circles. They say that Zastrozzi once passed through Paris like a plague. Leaving the aristocracy nearly bankrupt, their daughters all defiled and diseased, the police in chaos and the museums ransacked. And all because, it is said, he took a dislike to the popular French taste in art. But they say that all Europe has no more cause to fear Zastrozzi. They say that for three years he has been single-minded in a search for revenge on one man and all the rest of Europe has been untouched… Additional information: Dress Rehearsal: April 24 - 25, 2023. Performance dates: April 27 - 29, May 4 - 6, May 11 - 13. Directors ask that actors come prepared with a brief (1 minute or less) monologue. Monologues will be available at the auditions if you are unable to prepare something, but bringing your own is strongly recommended. You may be asked to deliver your monologue in a different style. You will also be given an excerpt from the script from which to read; these sides can be made available in advance by contacting the production team. Additionally, each actor will participate in a physical exercise as part of a group. These will be held at the half-hour (7:30, 8:30, and 9:30) each evening; you can take part in the session either before or after your reading audition, whichever is more convenient. Your total time at the audition may be 30 minutes. In order to ensure you have time to study the scripts, we ask that actors arrive a bit early. Directors may request callbacks of actors under consideration for certain roles, which would take place on Friday February 10th. There will be 2-3 rehearsals a week, not every actor will be required at every rehearsal.
Master criminal of Europe. Cold and rational, apparently sane and supremely competent. Has nightmares. Almost never smiles.
A painter, at the moment; something of a dilettante, as over the past three years he has pursued numerous artistic endeavours. Has a way with women. Pleasantly vague. Always smiles.
A friend of Verezzi’s father who has taken on the task of keeping Verezzi hidden and safe from Zastrozzi. Intelligent, thoughtful, skeptical, cautious.
Seductress and frequent companion of Zastrozzi. Bold, passionate, not particularly subtle. Scornful. Physical, very much present in her body.
Zastrozzi’s henchman. Smarter than he looks, but perhaps not as smart as he thinks. Poor impulse control. Mostly unimaginative.
Daughter of a wealthy family in the town. Selfpossessed, confident, sure of herself and her position in society. Smart but a bit shallow, taking the world at face-value.
