Hello friends, on Saturday, October 19th, we'll be holding auditions for Romeo & Juliet. You'll find all information below. If you're interested - and I hope you are - you may reply to this email for an audition time. We'd love to see you there!
Ryan Crowder, Producing Artistic Director
Shakespeare’s tale of young lovers swept into a catastrophic vortex of misunderstandings, secrets and fate is one of the most beloved stories of all time. In this fresh adaptation for five actors, Romeo and Juliet, the son and daughter of two noble families locked in an old feud, are irresistibly drawn to each other. Defying the hatred and distrust surrounding them, they dare to believe they can, and must, be together. Click here for a full synopsis of the play.
Romeo & Juliet is the fourth production in the “Penfold in the Park” series, an annual offering of free, outdoor summer theatre, made possible by a partnership with the Round Rock Parks & Recreation Dept. Performances take place in the amphitheater of Centennial Plaza, just blocks away from historic downtown Round Rock. Romeo & Juliet is directed by Steven Pounders and runs June 5-28, 2014. For more information, please visit the show's webpage.
Audition Information Saturday, October 19th at ArtSpace, 221 E. Main Street, Round Rock, TX 78664. (Map it) All roles are paid. Please email Ryan Crowder at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Please bring a headshot and resume. You will receive sides from the show after your audition time has been confirmed. You are welcome to memorize your sides but are not required to. It is more important to us that we see how you act truthfully as the character; how you handle Shakespeare's verse; and (in the case of some roles) how you distinguish mentally / physically / vocally between multiple characters. Callbacks are tentatively scheduled for Saturday the 26th
