“The Winter’s Fail” by The Silly Shakespeare Company®

NY Summerfest 2018
The Hudson Guild Theater
441 West 26 Street NYC

*As part of this festival, actors have the opportunity to be nominated as Best Actor or Actress and win cash prizes*

“The Winter’s Fail” synopsis: It may be warm and sunny Sicily, but King Leontes is as cold as ice when he wrongly accuses his pregnant wife Hermione of being up to no good with his best friend and turning her into stone. Is this a lame storyline with ridiculous action? Using music, narration, jokes and climate control, we will explore what Shakespeare was thinking when he wrote “The Winter’s Tale” and if he picked the best title.

We are casting roles based on William Shakespeare’s “The Winter’s Tale”. Actors must have some facility with verse, lip syncing and comedy.

Female 20s-30s: Perdita/Wonder Woman Attendant/Rock Star. Perdita is a spirited flower child, though born into royalty, she is down to earth. This actress also portrays an Attendant who recreates Wonder Woman gestures, and lip syncs as a 1980s rock star.

Male 30-50: Florizel/Mamillius/Frankie Valli. Florizel is a prince who chooses to lose it all for love. This actor also portrays Mamillius, a very young prince, and lip syncs and portrays Frankie Valli of The Four Seasons.

Male 50s: Shepherd/Bruce Springsteen/One of The Four Seasons/A Beach Boy. The Old Shepherd is humble and modest. This actor also lip syncs and portrays Bruce Springsteen and lip syncs and imitates the moves of The Four Seasons and The Beach Boys.

Tech: August 28 from 1:15 to 6:15pm

Performances:
August 28 @ 6:15pm
September 1 @ 8:30pm
September 2 @ 1pm

Auditions on Long Island, you will be contacted to arrange a time.

Down and out, financially and emotionally. Finds himself about to jump off the Golden Gate Bridge but is saved by a patrolling officer.
Man, mid 30’s, Caucasian, patrol officer of the Golden Gate Bridge. Starts the play inexperienced, but then is the voice of reason and wisdom, helping our hero NOT to jump off the Bridge. Compassionate, and spiritual.
Man, early to mid 50’s, seasoned patrol officer, philosophical and experienced. Coaches the younger officer to deal with people who have suicidal thoughts and have come to the Golden Gate Bridge to commit suicide. Not jaded, but definitely grizzled and has seen it all.
Woman, 40’s, insurance agent. Compassionate, but very by the book. Well educated and informed on complex policy. Must be able to have a tone of voice that can explain difficult insurance concepts.
Woman, mid 20’s, wife of our hero. Same class, has given birth to a premature baby. Very close to leaving her husband and is scared by his suicidal thoughts. Tries to understand and deal, but is at her wit’s end.
Woman, 40’s, doctor. Compassionate and knowledgeable. Has very tight control over her staff and feels very sorry for the hero and his wife. Breaks bad news to them over the phone.
