CAST - (Involves two sets of youngish blokes - twins)
Antipholus x 2: 1 pair of well set up men about town 
Dromio x 2: a pair of comic slaves/servants - one for each Antipholus
Aegeon, the old father of the two Antopholus - has a long opening speech with comic potential
Aemilia - his wife. Only appears at the end - having spent the intervening time as a recluse
Duke of Ephesus. Powerful, commanding, controls the town of Ephesus
Adriana wife of Antipholus of Ephesus - lovely but confused
Luciana, her sister - falls for her brother in law's twin
Luce, female servant to Adriana
Balthazar, merchant 
Angelo the Goldsmith - chases wrong twin for his money.
2 more merchants
The town 'bike' - Shakespeare calls her a courtesan
Pinch - a schoolmaster
Jailer, Officers, attendants
Plus various non-speaking others

I am looking for physicality and rapping skills in the younger cast members.

Auditions 16 October 2011. 

Call 5628116/ 0212068026 for time.
Prepare something to show your capabilities.

This is an early audition because I want to establish characterisation before people go off for the Christmas break. Cast will be expected to know lines by the first rehearsal Sunday 8 January. 

Rehearsing from 8 Jan 2012 at Muritai School Sun Tues & Thurs

Come one come all
