Alcott Arts Center
The Alcott Arts Center will be holding a second round of Auditions on June 25th from 6 to 8PM for Alcott's 2015 "Shakespeare in the Parking Lot VIII" production of
Love's, Labours, Lost by William Shakespeare
Directed by Susan Proctor, PhD.
The play runs September 12,13,19,20
Please bring Head-shots and Resumes (if you have them)and date conflicts.
We still have some key roles available.
This is one of Shakespeare's earliest comedies, probably written in 1580s. It may have been first performed in 1588. It was certainly performed in 1597.The play tells the tale of the King of Navarre and his three friends who swear off of women for one year.
Except when the Princess of France and her three friends come on a diplomatic mission.
Also, the play spoofs the academics, the Spanish, the local constable, and the country lads and lasses.
It is a play about love (at least 5 couples), which sets man's wits against women's.
There are 16 named characters, 6 men, 5 women, and 5 can be either.
Another character in this play is definitely language. The king and his friends all write a bit of poetry, some better than others.
For auditions, I would like to hear you read and perhaps dance a bit. If you want to prepare ahead of time, I will leave some books at the Alcott Arts that you can peruse to find out about the characters and maybe, some of the language.
