Casting call - actor wanted to play the role of Prince William Of Orange, with the South Devon Players.

William is physically slim, with a strength of personality that belies his
appearance, regal but down to earth at the same time.

Historically based stage play by a non-profit community theatre company based in Brixham (Devon, England), telling the intertwined stories of several local historical characters.

Applicants must live in the Torbay / south Devon area to be able to attend rehearsals weekly in Brixham (currently on a Wednesday evening, and closer to the performance time some sunday afternoons as well). Previous experience is not required, though reliability, and willingness to work in a close knit team are vital.

Please contact us immediatly, if you are interested, as this is an urgent casting. You will be asked to attend a rehearsal and read the part along with the cast.
The play will be performed around South Devon during the first half/ mid September 2010. Evenings.

Please email me on bardic_dreams@yahoo.co.uk.

I can imagine! what always gets under my skin are the timewasters. We had someone want to take on the role, but because, historically, William of Orange was Protestant, and they objected to playing anyone who wasnt Catholic. They then said they were fine with it when I asked if it were a serious problem for them, but then they refused to attend rehearsals, on these grounds..... so we are having an urgent re-cast!

Oh, you must be kidding! Dear God. That is a new one for me.

I played the Defense attorney in "Night of January 16th" once with a week of rehearsal. That was a challenge. Fun though, one of my favorite theater stories. I would LOVE playing William of Orange, what a great character.

I'm adding you, keep me posted on this.
