Audition Description

The plot revolves around the arrival of a band of officers, fresh from a successful military campaign and bent on enjoying some R and R at the country home of their old friend, Leonato. Young Claudio succeeds in wooing and winning Leonato's daughter, Hero; while the more experienced Benedick is confronted by a former girlfriend, the spirited Beatrice, who is Hero's cousin. Things become complicated when another officer, the evil Don John, decides to make trouble. His villainy is eventually uncovered (sort of) by an extremely gormless troop of local policemen, under the leadership (if you can call it that) of Dogberry.

- Auditions will consist of cold reads from the script, so no need to prepare a monologue!

    An associate of Don John. Borachio is the lover of Margaret, Hero's serving woman. He conspires with Don John to trick Claudio and Don Pedro into thinking that Hero is unfaithful to Claudio. His name means "drunkard" in Italian, which might serve as a subtle direction to the actor playing him.

  • Role #9 - Dogberry

    The constable in charge of the Watch, or chief policeman, of Messina. Dogberry is very sincere and takes his job seriously, but he has a habit of using exactly the wrong word to convey his meaning. Dogberry is one of the few "middling sort," or middle-class characters, in the play, though his desire to speak formally and elaborately like the noblemen becomes an occasion for parody.

    The illegitimate brother of Don Pedro; sometimes called "the Bastard." Don John is melancholy and sullen by nature, and he creates a dark scheme to ruin the happiness of Hero and Claudio. He is the villain of the play; his evil actions are motivated by his envy of his brother's social authority.

Don Pedro is generous, courteous, intelligent, and loving to his friends, but he is also quick to believe evil of others and hasty to take revenge. He is the most politically and socially powerful character in the play.

  • Role #15 - Margaret

    Hero's serving woman, who unwittingly helps Borachio and Don John deceive Claudio into thinking that Hero is unfaithful. Unlike Ursula, Hero's other lady-in-waiting, Margaret is lower class. Though she is honest, she does have some dealings with the villainous world of Don John: her lover is the mistrustful and easily bribed Borachio. Also unlike Ursula, Margaret loves to break decorum, especially with bawdy jokes and teases.
