Summer Shakespeare Auditions
Emerging Artists Trust Wellington posted 23 Sep 2011, 04:17 PM
Summer Shakespeare 2012 presents Twelfth Night, one of Shakespeare’s most romantic and hilarious comedies.
Twelfth Night tells the story of Viola, a young woman shipwrecked in the country of Illyria who decides to dress as a man to make her make her way in the new land. She comes to serve the lovesick Count Orsino in his courtship of Lady Olivia, who instead falls for the fetching young go-between. Along the way, we met Sir Toby Belch and other riotous court characters, as well as that officious steward, Malvolio.
Melanie Camp’s production, set by the seaside in the 1920s, promises to be a sassy, mischievous affair of colourful costumes and lively music. From raucous comedy to swooning romance, Twelfth Night swings through the many moods of love with wit and laughter.
AUDITIONS: 29th & 30th October 2011, 225 Aro Street, Aro Valley, Wellington
PERFORMANCE DATES: Twelfth Night will play at Gladstone Vineyard in the Wairarapa from the 9th-11th February, and at the Dell in the Wellington Botanic Gardens from Friday 17 February to Saturday 3 March.
November – February with plenty of time off over Christmas and New Year.
