Present Company is pleased to announce auditions for SHAKESPEARE AT THE MARKET: Much Ado About Nothing. Sponsored by Whole Foods Market, the production will take place on the rooftop of the downtown Austin flagship store, and will run April 18th-May 11th, Friday-Sunday evenings.
Rehearsals will begin in late February. Present Company created Shakespeare on the Farm, a free, professional, outdoor Shakespeare project that has grown to be an Austin tradition, and is thrilled to be taking Shakespeare farm-to-market next spring.
The show will be well-publicized and is a great opportunity to be seen by a broad demographic, while working with top-notch theatre professionals and truly awesome people. Some roles will be cast with existing company members, but new actors may audition for any role. Actors should come prepared with a well-vocalized, fully-memorized 1-2 minute monologue from Elizabethan verse or prose. The production will be directed by Aaron Black of 7 Towers Theatre and previous Present Company productions. Aaron and the artistic directors of Present Company encourage minorities, non-traditional type actors, and actors not previously seen by Present Company to audition.
