Auditions

Auditions are held for specific productions throughout the year. We also get together for play readings.  These roles are non-AEA/without pay. Typically, we ask actors to prepare a classical monologue in addition to reading sides from the script.


***

We are looking to cast four more actors (non-AEA) for our next production, Arden of Faversham (April 26-May 12, San Francisco). Please send resume/headshot to mgr.theaterofothers@gmail.com to arrange an audition time ASAP. 

About the Show: This outrageous (and anonymous) Elizabethan black comedy is about a gentleman merchant named Arden. His wife Alice is openly carrying on an affair.  When Alice and her lover plot to kill Arden, she hires two street ruffians to carry out the murder. 
But their competence is questionable. And Arden seems to be amazingly lucky...

Looking to cast: 

* Arden (lead), Male - 30-50. The titular character, he is a gentleman merchant with an unhappy wife and a seemingly unending stream of good luck.
* Alice (lead), Female - 30-50. Married to Arden, Alice is openly carrying on an affair. She is the one who sets the fiendish murder plot in motion.
* Will (lead), Male, 30-50. A cashiered military veteran with battle experience, Will is one of the would-be killers. 
* Greene (lead), Male, 40-60. A business rival of Arden, he is tasked with managing the murder plot.

Production details: April 26 - May 12, Thursdays-Sundays at the Kelly Cullen Auditorium (220 Golden Gate Avenue, San Francisco). Rehearsals begin on February 26, Tuesdays-Fridays, 6-9pm, in SOMA. Full production schedule available upon request. Travel stipend negotiable.

Play readings

image13

We occasionally host play-reading groups to try out plays under consideration for future productions. These are not public performances, just informal sessions that include reading the plays out loud, with preliminary dramaturgy and open discussion. Participants will read roles without regard for their suitability for casting. Typically, these are works that originated on the Elizabethan and Jacobean stage, that are not commonly known and are very rarely produced.
