Auditions for ACT's Shakespeare in the Park 2015: Love's Labour's Lost.

April 26, 5PM

April 28, 7PM

(Performances August 1, 2, 8, and 9, 2015) 

Ferdinand, King of Navarre, and his three pals have sworn “not to see ladies, study, fast, not sleep” for three years. Unfortunately, their timing is a bit off. It’s 1967, the “summer of love,” and the Princess of France and her three pals have just arrived in Navarre, ready for anything.

 

Join Actors’ Circle Theatre as we tackle this seldom-performed war-between-the-sexes comedy and answer the question, “Can you take the sex out of ‘sex, drugs and rock and roll’?”

Characters in the Play

NOTE: There have been substantial cuts to the script. The roles of Don Adriano, Mote, Holofernes and Nathaniel have suffered the most cuts.

Men

  • FERDINAND, King of Navarre: serious, studious and determined
  • BIRON: a wit; an early version of Much Ado’s Benedick 
  • LONGAVILLE & DUMAINE: other friends joining Ferdinand in his social experiment
  • DON ADRIANO DE ARMADO: a fantastic Spaniard whose phrases multiply like rabbits; in love with Jaquenetta
  • COSTARD: more multi-dimensional than the typical Shakespearean clown; in love with Jaquenetta 
  • BOYET: the Princess’s male attendant; a bit of a toady
  • FORESTER

Women

  • PRINCESS OF FRANCE: a no-nonsense monarch with little patience for flatterers
  • ROSALINE: Biron’s counterpart
  • MARIA & KATHERINE: to round out the romantic octet
  • JAQUENETTA: a very popular young lady

Sex to Be Determined
