Character Profiles & Audition Pieces
The play has 12 speaking parts, each with more than 30 lines. There are 6 other small speaking parts, (with the possibility of some doubling) and we shall be looking to cast up to another 10 actors for non-speaking roles. These will include musicians and dancers.
There are three specific roles for women and another 3 or 4 of the speaking parts could be played by women. Selection of the character name below will take you directly to the appropriate audition piece(s) that can then be printed off.
For those wishing to audition for small parts or non-speaking parts it would be good if you could select any 6 to 10 lines from Twelfth Night or from any Shakespearian role.
