Audition Description

Shakespeare got away with a lot of shit, and in his time women weren't allowed onstage to represent themselves. Why not turn the tables and watch women have a go at this tale of toxic gender norms? And while we're at it, why not gut the script and flip it on its head? We present America's finest all-female Shakespeare troupe, forced to tell a story they all want to shred apart.

Please prepare one Shakespearean and one Contemporary monologue to present at auditions, totaling no more than 5 minutes to complete both. The remaining 5 minutes will be for play and questions if needed.

  • A Lord gone hunting has a strange sense of humor which leads him to decide to turn a drunken beggar he finds lying by the roadside into a lord for a night.

Landed 2 Feature Film major roles with some great cash!... Since I joined Exploretalent.com last year around this time, I have landed two Feature Film major roles! I never would have realized the opportunities had it not been for you guys! The first film I received a part in was a feature by Raj Rahi called "ShutUp!", it will be completed this year. The second I am currently shooting here in Memphis is a major role with some great cash! I thought that this might be another one of those pay for nothing sites, but obviously you guys know what you are doing. Keep up the good work and keep the roles coming for me!! --Chris Plumlee
