General auditions to fill missing roles in Othello & Hamlet for our upcoming season!
Audition Date(s) (if applicable):
Character 1 Description:
"Renaissance representations of the Moor were vague, varied, inconsistent, and contradictory. As critics have established, the term 'Moor' referred to dark-skinned people in general, used interchangeably with similarly ambiguous terms as 'African', 'Ethiopian' and even 'Indian' to designate a figure from Africa (or beyond)." "It has been suggested that Abd el-Ouahed ben Messaoud ben Mohammed Anoun, Moorish ambassador of the Arab King of Barbary to Queen Elizabeth I in 1600, may have been an inspiration for Othello."
Please ONLY submit if you fit the above description. Seeking a black, MENA, or Indian actor who is skilled in handling Shakespeare. Othello is married and works as a General in the military. He is highly respected and deeply loves his wife.
