The What You Will Shakespeare Company Presents The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (Abridged) Auditions
Come join us and audition for the final (and extremely hilarious) show of The What You Will Shakespeare Company’s Fall 2014 Season: The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (Abridged)!
Directed by Kim Gasiciel and Tori Stukins
Assisted by Ryan Anastasia and Angela Nostwick
Wednesday, September 24th
6 PM - 10 PM
English Building Room 150
608 South Wright Street, Urbana, IL, 61801
Friday, November 14th and Saturday, November 15th
What better way to end the semester than with a comedic romp through all of Shakespeare’s works. This production is here to showcase that everyone and anyone can find something hilarious and fun in the works of ‘ol Willy!
The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (abridged) is a madcap, semi-improvised, high-energy show that sees a group of six (to possibly eight) performers attempt to put on all of Shakespeare’s plays in 90 minutes! It’s filled to the brim with bad jokes, rapping, quick-changes, cooking shows, interpretive dance, football, and pants-dropping goodness. We will be crafting a small-but-awesome production using audience interaction and of course comedy. This is not your high school production of Hamlet, it’s no fear Shakespeare!
Absolutely NO PREPARATION necessary! (But if you’re unfamiliar with the show and want to know what you might be getting into, you can watch a full version with the original Adam here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yqmfrqAVeK0 )
Stop by, fill out an audition form, read some lines, play some improv games with us and HAVE A GREAT TIME!
We are currently hoping to cast 6 - 8 people in this production.
RSVP on Facebook!
Hope to see you there, and remember, make ‘em laugh. Make ‘em laugh!
