About The Event

Join us for a captivating journey into the world of jealousy, manipulation, and tragic love as we bring Shakespeare's timeless masterpiece, "Othello," to life on stage. We are seeking passionate and talented actors to embody these iconic characters and deliver a performance that will leave audiences spellbound.



  • Othello - A noble Moorish general, deeply in love with his wife Desdemona.
  • Desdemona - Othello's virtuous and devoted wife, caught in a web of deceit.
  • Iago - Othello's cunning ensign, driven by jealousy and seeking to manipulate those around him.
  • Cassio - Othello's loyal and honorable lieutenant, ensnared in Iago's schemes.
  • Emilia - Iago's wife and Desdemona's confidante, entangled in the unfolding tragedy.
  • Roderigo - A wealthy Venetian in love with Desdemona, unwittingly manipulated by Iago.

Please prepare the following:

  1. Acting Resume: Bring a copy of your updated acting resume, highlighting your experience and training.
  2. Headshot: Provide a recent headshot that captures your essence as an actor.

Audition Requirements:

  • Slides: You will be given selected scenes from "Othello" to read with other auditioning actors. Familiarity with the text is encouraged, but no need to memorize.
  • Monologue: Prepare a 1-2 minute Shakespearean monologue of your choice. This is your opportunity to showcase your range and interpretation.

Whether you're a seasoned Shakespearean actor or exploring classical theater for the first time, we welcome all levels of experience and enthusiasm. Our aim is to create a production that resonates with the depth and complexity of the original text while bringing a fresh perspective to the stage.
