Shakespeare’s R&J Auditions
The Long Beach Playhouse is doing an open call for Shakespeare’s R&J by Joe Calarco.
The play is scheduled to run July 25 through Aug. 22.
Bring a headshot and resume. Audition sides with character monologues from the script with be provided. Please be very familiar with the script and the roles you are auditioning for.
Four young prep school students, tired of going through the usual drill of conjugating Latin and other tedious school routines, decide to vary their governed lives. After school, one breaks out a copy of William Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet and they all take turns reading the play aloud. The Bard’s words and the story itself are thrilling to the boys and they become swept away, enmeshed in the emotion so much so that they break school rules in order to continue their readings. The rigidity of their lives begins to parallel the lives of the characters in the play: roles in the family, roles in society and the roles played by men and women soon seem to make all the sense in the world, and then, suddenly, they seem to make no sense at all. Perceptions and understanding are turned upside down as the fun of play acting turns serious and the words and meanings begin to hit home and universal truths emerge.
Time: 7 to 9 p.m. June 1 and 2
Venue: Long Beach Playhouse, 5021 Anaheim St., Long Beach
