Audition Description

Othello is a complex, tragic play that tells the story of love destroyed by jealousy. Our title character, a Moor and a Venetian General, marries a Venetian noblewoman without her family's blessing. Iago, our villain, plots to destroy Othello -because he was slighted for a higher position in the military - by targeting Othello's marriage and using his ethnicity against him to ultimately lead Othello to his own demise.

- Please prepare a one-minute dramatic, heightened text monologue (please disregard intended gender roles when selecting monologues).
Please email your headshot and resume.

    Othello is a strong, capable general of the queer militia. Her eloquence and intelligence has garnered her much respect from the militia as well as its enemies, though that respect is tenuous at best.Othello is under incredible pressure to be perfect so as to maintain her power.

I just want to say thanks for your site. You guys have really helped me in this business. I was turned down by so many agents and managers that I can't even count them on my fingers. I have even been scammed by two of them. I found my new manager that I am signed right now on this website from one of the auditions. I auditioned for the management and was signed two weeks later. I am so excited and now I have movies in the works and so much other projects. I couldn't be more happy. You guys truly are awesome and I recommend everyone and anyone who wants to be an actor or singer or dancer this is the place to be. That send you to nothing but the best auditions and take it from me it may take time to get accepted to most of the auditions that you are casted for but believe me its worth the time. Remember its not your choice its what has already been mapped out for you, so don't hesitate. Sign up for exploretalent.com and you won't be disappointed. Thank you once again. Kenneth Edwards
