PPP's New Faces of Shakespeare announces...
Auditions for Lewes Library Fundraiser to be held JUL 10 and JUL 11 7:00p for program SEP 22

These are auditions for a program which will take place Friday, September 22, 2017 at 5:00p at the Lewes Library. The program will consist of a series of 8 to 10 monologues and small scenes of 2 to 3 people. This is a really unique event. Last year we divided the material into two groups with one group starting at the first table and the second group starting at the last table. A scene is performed for a table of diners, then actors move on to the next table. No table has to wait long for entertainment. Food is served to us after the program.

Texts will be selected to some extent based on those who audition; if you have a favorite or a suggestion, let us know.

Audition dates are Monday JUL 10 and Tuesday JUL 11 at 7:00p in the Green Room of PPP's Possum Hall in Georgetown DE. NOTE: These are the same dates as the auditions for Beauty and the Beast, so people can come out for two projects on the same nights.

We are asking people to consider the following: come with a memorized 2 minute or so monologue, come with a monologue with a script in hand, or, if you have none, a script will be offered to you. Shannon Parks will be coordinating the auditions and overseeing the production.

Open Casting, with no roles pre-selected. NFS is committed to diversity, open to non-traditional casting, and will consider actors of all ethnicities for all roles.
