Shakespeare on the Green

Shakespeare on the Green is Brown University's theater troupe dedicated to outdoor and site-specific theater. 

Thanks to actors, directors, designers, and audiences who made SotG's 2011-2012 season such a success. 

The SotG ensemble was proud to present:

-A magical take on The Tempest.
-The second annual Rude Mechanicals scenes festival (Ten Things You Will All Hate About the Ending of Romeo & Juliet... Or Will You?)
-A tale of raucous heroism in The Roaring Girl.
-An innovative staging of two narrative poems in Variable Passions: Venus & Adonis and the Rape of Lucrece.
-The bright, perplexing whirl of Twelfth Night; Or, What You Will. 

Our congratulations and thanks to all involved. 

SotG is thrilled to announce auditions for our 2012 fall show, Richard III!

It's election season, and speculation is high about which of the candidates for the top office in the country will get the job. None of them seem particularly qualified, and everyone's sense of security is on edge after the recent change in leadership. Peace just might be happening when an ugly outsider with a grudge to avenge decides to toss their hat in the ring, and quickly national politics are drenched in a level of deceit, trickery, and murder not seen in years. 

Interested? Come audition for Shakespeare on the Green's production of Richard III, one of Shakespeare's most beloved plays, and show us how persuasive you can be. 
Villainy hasn't been this fun since 1485.

IMPORTANT: All casting will be gender-neutral. We are looking for individuals of all types with opinions and ideas on politics, charm, the media, dysfunctional families, war, and control. 
Anybody can play anybody. Show us what you've got. 

Auditions will be:

Sunday, September 9th, 2. P.M.-5 P.M, at Wilson 103.
Monday, September 10th, 6 P.M.-9 P.M. at Faunce Memorial Room.
