WHAT’S HAPPENING NOW?
We’re putting on a choose-your-own-adventure version of Hamlet. An improv play!
LONG STORY SHORT
Auditions are Sunday 2/24. Optional improv workshops (choose two) 3/2, 3/9 and 3/16. Full day mandatory rehearsal on Saturday 3/23, play will be done on the morning of 3/24. More info below….
TELL ME ABOUT THIS PLAY.
The play itself will be streamed live online, with the audience deciding what happens next. Your family and friends back home can watch and vote if you want! We will do everything with teleprompters, so there are no lines to memorize.
WHO IS PUTTING IT ON?
Directed by Ryan Estrada, Improv Director Peter Starr Northrop. Based on the book by Ryan North.
WHO ARE YOU LOOKING FOR?
If you have an interest in acting, Shakespeare, or improv, we want you! We’ll be casting specific actors for all of the main roles, but we also need a large flexible repertory cast to fill in the rest of the world! Since it’s choose-your-own-adventure,
There are roles ranging from completely silent to, well- even more lines than Hamlet had in the original Hamlet, so there’s parts for everybody!
WHAT KIND OF COMMITMENT ARE WE LOOKING AT?
I’m trying to make this as fun, and low-pressure an endeavor as possible.
The entire rehearsal and production of the play itself will happen in one weekend. We’ll run a few possible outcomes all day Saturday March 23rd, and do the play the morning of Sunday March 24th. You’ll be done in time for lunch. (Pizza’s on me!)
HOWEVER, between now and then we will hold three Saturday improv workshops. March 2nd, March 9th, and March 16th. Everyone should attend two of them. If you can attend all three, that’s great! Feel free to contact me about time conflicts.
WHERE ARE AUDITIONS?
Auditions will be held at APEC Naru Park, just across the street from Shinsaegae Department Store in Centum City. I’ll post a map below.
WHEN ARE AUDITIONS?
