Auditions for The Curate Shakespeare As You Like It by Don Nigro

This cult classic is a witty tribute to Shakespeare’s famous play.

6:30-9:30 PM at the Dougherty Arts Center
Callbacks on January 4

March 1-17, 2018
Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays at 8 PM
The Curtain Theatre

ROSALIND—she’s gone mad, but in a cheerful way. Knowledgeable but batty at the same time.
CELIA—so over everyone around her. Not here to make friends. Her sensitivity is buried deep under a layer of attitude.
AUDREY—not the sharpest knife in the drawer, but manages to pull off playing Rosalind when no one believes in her.
THE CURATE—de facto director of the group. Very confident. Demanding.
AMIENS—keeps his head down and does the work. Unfortunately, he flubs his big speech (repeatedly).
WILLIAM—young, inexperienced, naïve, sensitive, thoughtful
THE CLOWN—lovable, self-deprecating, irreverent

All ethnicities, ages, shapes, sizes, and gender expressions encouraged to audition.
Rosalind, Celia, and Audrey should read as female; Amiens and William should read as male; The Curate and The Clown could be either or neither. That said, I am open to flexibility with all the roles. Audition for the part that speaks to you.

Auditions by appointment only. For info, please email Kate Clark at
