Considered one of Shakespeare’s most popular and charming comedies, Much Ado about Nothing features the classic couple Benedick, an arrogant and confirmed bachelor, and Beatrice, his favorite sparring partner, who would rather exchange scorching insults than sweet nothings.
The pugnacious pair is forced to forge a partnership in order to defend house and honor, and salvage the true love of Hero and Claudio after deceptions destroy the lovers’ wedding day. Will the earnest endeavor to restore a young romance elicit an unexpected change of heart for the effort’s unlikely collaborators as well? Witty wordplay, passionate poetry and clever plot twists make this the perfect romantic evening to share love and laughter.
Bring headshot, resume and a one-minute prepared Shakespeare monologue. Scenes may also be performed. 512-524-2870 or firstname.lastname@example.org to set up an appt. For more audition details, go to www.citytheatreaustin.org
