Casting for a production of William Shakespeare's Macbeth
Posted: Wednesday, Feb. 16
Macbeth (

Casting for a production of William Shakespeare's Macbeth, to be performed at the Gemini Playhouse April 21-23rd and 28-30th. This production tears the play from its medieval setting and puts it in a modern, fascist Scotland in 1967. This is largely a non-paid gig, but there's the possibility of deferred pay depending on receipts. Some roles I'll be casting:

King Duncan (m,40s-60s)-- Scotland's monarch since the 1962 coup d'etat
Col. Iain Banquo (m,30s-40s) -- one of Duncan's military council
Prince Malcolm (m,20s-30s) -- son to King Duncan, later installed by the British as puppet
Col. George Macduff (m,30s-40s)-- thane of Fife, another of Duncan's council of colonels
Col. John Ross (m,30s-50s)-- Scottish colonel
Col. Gordon Lennox (m,30s-50s)-- Scottish colonel
Maj. Gen. Sir Thomas Siward, Sr (m,40s-60s) -- commander of the British forces during the invasion of Scotland
*Col. Thomas Siward, Jr
*A Sergeant
*A Porter

= roles that will be double/triple-cast

All actors who want to audition should have experience with a Scottish accent, as these will be used in the play (Siward Sr and Jr, will have British accents). Rehearsals will be three nights a week (Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday) March 15th - April 12th.

The audition dates are
March 16th-17th. Location is the Dougherty Arts Center, 1110 Barton Springs Rd. (click for map) Send all queries, as well as headshots and resumes, to .
