Audition Description

The Tempest is thought to be one of the last plays that Shakespeare wrote alone. After the first scene, which takes place on a ship at sea during a tempest, the rest of the story is set on a remote island, where the sorcerer Prospero, a complex and contradictory character, lives with his daughter Miranda, and his two servants — Caliban, a savage monster figure, and Ariel, an airy spirit. The play contains music and songs that evoke the spirit of enchantment on the island. It explores many themes including magic, betrayal, revenge, and family.

We've condensed the characters of Shakespeare's magical farewell to the stage into 12 roles, meaning that every part has plenty for performers to get their teeth into.

What's more, our interpretation is open to gender-blind casting for almost every role. And with plenty of characters both young and young-at-heart we've parts for every age too.

  • Role #1 - Prospero

    The cast-out Duke of Milan, now a sorcerer on an enchanted desert island. One of Shakespeare's most complex characters. Has a bit of a God complex, plenty of latent insecurity, can be petty, vindictive and cruel.
