Theatre Auditions | The Tempest – Seeking a DIVERSE Ensemble of Actors, Movers and Dancers

February 25 @ 3:30 pm - 8:30 pm PST

free
Directed by Michael Mufson • Movement by Molly Faulkner

Open Call Friday February 25th.

Steer directly into the swirling tempest of magic, conspiracy, revenge, and romance conjured by Shakespeare’s beloved play. Set on a remote island, the sorcerer, Prospero, compels his magical minions to beguile his shipwrecked enemies and lead them on a turbulent trek revealing murderous ambition and treachery. But vengeance turns to virtue when Prospero turns the eye of judgement on his own cruelty and conquest, only to discover a power greater than magic- compassion.
