Hamlet at X*Act auditions

January 26, 2014

XENIA — Hamlet by William Shakespeare will be adapted and directed by Tony Copper for stage in April. Open auditions will be held 7 p.m. Feb. 3-4, Xenia Area Community Theater, 45 E. Second St., Side Door.

Love, intrigue and gunplay as the young Prince of Denmark returns home to find his father is dead and his mother has married his murderer. Brevity may be the soul of wit but it will also be the soul of this production.

Please prepare a short monologue from “Hamlet.” Please make the monologue your own. The director is not looking for classically performed pieces nor for classically trained performers. Be creative and unique. Auditions will also consist of cold readings from the script. For more information call 937-372-0516.
