Athenian Players Present: “Rosencrantz & Giuldenstern are Dead”
April 18 - April 20
Introducing the Athenian Players production of “Rosencrantz & Giuldenstern are Dead.”
Acclaimed as a modern dramatic masterpiece, Rosencrantz & Guildenstern Are Dead is the fabulously inventive tale of Hamlet as told from the worm’s-eye view of the bewildered Rosencrantz and Guildenstern, two minor characters in Shakespeare’s play. In Tom Stoppard’s best-known work, this Shakespearean Laurel and Hardy finally get a chance to take the lead role, but do so in a world where echoes of Waiting for Godot resound, where reality and illusion intermix, and where fate leads our two heroes to a tragic but inevitable end.
The Athenian Players are looking for men and women of all ages who are needed for this production to play a variety of roles. Non-traditional casting is to be expected based on potential pool of actors and casting is open to everyone including students of Athens State University, Calhoun Community College, or other schools, and is also open to all community actors and performers. Please either prepare a monologue, or be prepared to read a selection at your audition.
April: 11th, 12th, 13th, 18th, 19th, & 20th
