Imagine Snow White mixed with Romeo and Juliet in Ancient Britain, but with a happy ending! The beautiful princess Imogen loves the peasant Posthumus, but her father, King Cymbeline, is warped by her wicked step-mother. Posthumus is exiled. While abroad, Posthumus bets on the loyalty of his love whom a rival, the creepy Iachimo, wishes to test. Imogen remains true, but Iachimo’s lies prompt Posthumus to enlist his servant, Pisanio, to coax Imogen to run away with him to the forest and kill her. Imogen is eager to flee Britain and quickly plots her escape disguised as a boy. Abandoning Pisanio after he is unable to kill her in the woods, Imogen finds refuge with other woodsmen who had fled the King’s unjustified tyranny. Ultimately, evil is punished and love is restored through the power of forgiveness.

*Students should prepare a 1-2 minute Shakespeare monologue for auditions. Monologues are a short speech delivered by one character and can be from any play, musical, movie, or book. If you’re having difficulty finding a monologue, you might check out audition monologues books at your local library or book store, or try online at a monologue site like this.
Or, try this link for Shakespeare monologue suggestions.

It is possible that not all actors will be called at all times for all rehearsals, but please list any conflicts within this rehearsal period on audition form. Knowing a student has a conflict allows us to make the best use of student’s time while they are in rehearsal. Some conflicts may be acceptable within the rehearsal period, but no conflicts will be allowed during Tech/Dress rehearsals or performances. Conflicts may influence casting decisions.
Students/parents will be asked to fill out an audition form with general student contact information and ALL possible conflicts during our process. No additional conflicts will be accepted beyond what is offered on the audition form. If frequent or repeated lateness and/or unexpected absences occur during the rehearsal process this may lead to a student’s lines being reassigned, student being removed from scenes, songs or even the dismissal from the entire production, and will affect future casting consideration.
Headshots and resumes are not required at auditions, but are always encouraged. If no headshot is provided at auditions we may ask to take a photo of the student to better reference their appearance in connection with their audition form during casting decisions.
This is an advanced level Theatre School @ North Coast Rep production. As with all Theatre School productions, it is possible that not all students who audition will be cast.
