ROSENCRANTZ & GUILDENSTERN ARE DEAD
Ann Arbor Civic Theatre announces auditions for the Tom Stoppard Play, Rosencrantz & Guildenstern are Dead, directed by David Widmayer. Auditions take place Saturday, December 12 at 7:00 p.m. and Sunday, December 13 at 4:00 p.m. in the A2CT Studio (322 W. Ann St, Ann Arbor), with callbacks Monday, December 14 at 7:00 p.m. at the Children’s Creative Center (1600 Pauline Blvd, Ann Arbor). The date of a full-cast acting workshop with Kat Walsh will be announced at auditions. Text work with the director and an artistic consultant begins January 6, and rehearsals start January 17. The production runs March 10-13 at the Arthur Miller Theatre in Ann Arbor.
Ann Arbor Civic Theatre is seeking ten to fifteen actors for a unique production of Rosencrantz & Guildenstern Are Dead. Director David Widmayer brings his background in music and improv comedy to Tom Stoppard’s classic existential remix of Hamlet. Music developed by the ensemble throughout the rehearsal process will play an important role in the show, but no formal musical training is required to be cast. It’s more important that auditioners display a willingness to take risks and embrace the spirit of play present in Stoppard’s text. All actors will be considered for all roles regardless of gender. For auditions, actors may either prepare a modern comedic monologue no more than 1 to 2 minutes long, or receive a monologue at auditions for a cold reading. All actors will also be asked to cold-read a brief Shakespearean monologue at auditions.
