Auditions for a minimalist Othello with Philip Kreyche, October 3 - 8

Found at

Casting Call - OTHELLO

Holding auditions by appointment during the week of October 3-8 for a production of Shakespeare's Othello to be performed at the Center Stage theater in Austin, TX. This production is a minimalist, expressionistic presentation of Shakespeare's most intimate tragedy.

Casting for the following roles:

IAGO: an officer serving under Othello. Outwardly honest and caring, underneath he is a malevolent, jealous psychopath.
MICHAEL CASSIO: a noble young Venetian captain, who becomes a pawn in Iago's schemes.
BIANCA: Cassio's lover. A strong female role.
EMILIA: Iago's wife and Desdemona's maidservant.
LODOVICO: a Venetian nobleman, and kinsman to Desdemona.
GRATIANO: brother to Brabantio.
MONTANO: commander of the Venetian force at Cyprus
BRABANTIO: Desdemona's frustrated, worrisome father.
THE DUKE: the Duke of Venice

Some roles will potentially be double-cast. Auditions will be on an appointment-only basis during the week of October 3rd-8th.

Rehearsals for "Othello" are Mondays-Tuesdays-Wednesdays from 6-9pm, Oct 10th-Nov 2nd. Performances are November 10th-12th, and the 17th-19th, at 8pm.

For all actors there will be potential compensation depending on receipts.
