Audition Description

Much Ado About Nothing: Set in the Roaring '20s, this production of Shakespeare's beloved comedy sees Don Pedro and his friends Benedick and Claudio return home from WWI to stay at the Hotel Messina, owned by their friend Leonato. Leonato lives there with his daughter Hero and niece Beatrice. Claudio is immediately taken with the beautiful Hero, but Beatrice is less than thrilled to be sharing space with a former paramour, Benedick, and a merry battle of wits ensues. Their friends decide to try to set them up together. Meanwhile, Don Pedro's illegitimate brother, Don John, has plans of his own evil plans!


As You Like It: Shakespeare examines love, power, and forgiveness while taking us on a jaunt through the idyllic Forest of Arden. In this scene, our heroine, Rosalind, has been banished from the court of her wicked uncle. She and her cousin Celia have fled to the forest and, for protection have disguised themselves as brother and sister shepherds. Before they fled, Rosalind fell in love with the handsome Orlando, also banished and also in the forest. Orlando, not realizing that his sweetheart is in the woods (much less disguised as a boy), has been posting love poems all over the forest. Hilarity ensues.

At the outset of the play, she appears content never to marry.

    Much Ado About Nothing: 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.

He is the most politically and socially powerful character in the play.
