Some of the finest talent from the Metro area make up the cast and creative team of this amazing show, including alumni from Neptune Theatre, The Halifax Feast, and notable performers from professional and amateur productions alike. The cast demonstrates great depth of acting and vocal talent in the performance of this trail-blazing work from musical theatre's most renowned composer. Company is not to be missed!
Company is Stephen Sondheim's ode to the modern relationship. Winning seven Tony awards (including Best Musical, Best Lyrics, and Best Score), this dark comedy focuses on confirmed bachelor Robert, played by Anders Balderston, on the night of his 35th birthday. Sondheim's razor sharp wit explores dating and marriage from all sides, while asking, "what's it really all about?". Featuring some of Sondheim's most famous songs, audience members will see themselves in the vividly realistic characters on stage.

The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (Abridged) is a silly mashup of high art and base silliness. It's going to be a fast-paced production, and the cast will have lots of opportunities to add their own twist.
What we're looking for:
Three actors, age 18 and up, who are up for the challenge of performing all of Shakespeare's plays (in a greatly reduced, and very silly way) in under two hours. The actors will be playing themselves playing multiple characters, so they can be any age (over 18), gender, or ethnicity. The important thing is that the actors are creative, spontaneous, can handle some classical text, are up for very immature jokes, and can pull off high-energy physical comedy. (Don't stress if you haven't done Shakespeare before -- it's not as hard as you might think.)
What to expect at the audition:
The audition will include a cold read from the play (text will be provided). Auditioners will also be asked to read a short piece of Shakespearean text (about 14 lines, the length of a sonnet.) If you wish, you may prepare one in advance, but text will be provided. You are encouraged (but not required) to come prepared to tell your favourite joke. Bring your sense of humour, and be prepared to have some fun.
Please contact the director, Tamara Smith, at email@example.com if you have any questions.
