Auditions will be held on Monday, May 14th and Tuesday, May 15th at the T.A. Blake Middle School Auditorium, Pound St., Medfield, at 7:30 PM. Please note that the role of Othello has been cast.
Othello will be performed on three consecutive weekends: July 21st and 22nd at Rocky Woods in Medfield, July 28th and 29th at Powisset Farm in Dover, and August 4th and 5th at the Music Court in Bird Park, Walpole.
Please prepare a one to two minute Shakespearean monologue, if possible. Actors will also be asked to read scenes from the play. No prior Shakespeare experience is necessary, and women will be considered for traditionally male roles.
Othello will be directed by Benjamin Medeiros, who is on the Gazebo Players Board of Directors. Previously, Benjamin has directed Hamlet with the Gazebo Players as well as assistant directing Jekyll and Hyde with Rhode Island Stage Ensemble and Julius Caesar with the Gazebo Players. His extensive theatrical credits also include the roles of Berowne in Love's Labour's Lost, Duke Orsino in Twelfth Night, and Caliban in The Tempest (all with the Gazebo Players); Banquo in Macbeth (F.U.D.G.E. Theatre Company); Flute in A Midsummer Night's Dream (Dragonfly Theatre); Silvio in Servant of Two Masters (Vokes Players); and much more work both onstage and off. He writes and acts for the YouTube Channel "Cherrybot Studios." For more information about auditions for Othello please contact producer Amy Klesert at 781-223-0651 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
