Auditions will be held next week in Durban for the title role in Think Theatre’s revival of Shakespeare’s Othello, to be staged in 2014

Think Theatre are auditioning for the role of Othello in their production of Shakespeare’s tragedy, Othello, to be staged in 2014. The company requires a black male actor between the ages of 25 and 35 to perform in their production, which will be staged in KwaZulu-Natal, Johannesburg and Pretoria.

Rehearsals begin in January 2014, with performances from February to March (KZN) and May (Gauteng).

Actors interested in auditioning must prepare a passage from the play Othello to be used as an audition piece. They are not required to learn it off by heart. More importantly than simply memorising the words, is a clear understanding of the text which must be reflected in their reading of Shakespeare’s words at the audition.

Auditions will take place on October 22, 23 and 24 at the Rhumbelow Theatre, Cunningham Avenue, Umbilo in Durban.

It is essential to book an audition slot through Margie Coppen on 083 251 9412, or Clare Mortimer on 073 169 2733.
