Synopsis: The Duke of Vienna has temporarily removed himself from governing and deputized Angelo, a member of his administration, in his place. The moralizing Angelo has condemned Claudio to death because he impregnated his fiance Juliet before their marriage. Claudio’s sister Isabella, who is entering a convent, pleads for her brother’s life. Angelo makes her a bargain: yield her body to him and her brother will live. The duke, in disguise, eavesdrops as Isabella tells her brother about Angelo’s behavior, then offers to ally himself with her against Angelo.

Auditioners should prepare a Shakespeare monologue. Show us all your colors: If it’s a tragic monologue, look for the lines that can be given with humor or sarcasm or irony. If it’s a comic monologue, look for the darker elements. Shakespeare sonnets and monologues will be provided for those who aren’t able to prepare a monologue in advance. We are committed to gender inclusive casting, and encourage folks to audition regardless of race, ethnicity,  or disability status.
