Shakespeare’s tale of magic, love, and retribution gets an enchanting, “high fantasy” makeover in this new adaptation of “The Tempest”. Prospero, a powerful sorceress, sets a plan in motion twelve years in the making, wrecking a royal ship upon the shores of her island and beginning her game of “chess”. The players: the ruler of Naples and their child; Prospero’s conniving brother; punch-drunk noblemen; two spirits of nature; and even her own child, Miranda. The goal: to set right the wrongs of the past in hopes of giving her daughter a brighter future. In a thrilling re-exploration of the text, with sorcery and motherhood at its core, this production utilizes both the original prose and poetry, as well as dance and movement, to bring this classic faerie tale to life. This production will rehearse Tuesday and Thursday evenings and Saturday afternoons from March through May, starting at Snug Harbor Cultural Center and Botanical Garden in Staten Island (minutes away from the free Staten Island ferry) before moving to the Staten Island Playhouse at Empire Outlets (located at the Staten Island Ferry). Auditions will take place on Friday, March 1st from 6:00 to 10:00pm, and Saturday, March 2, from 10:00am to 2:00pm, with callbacks from 4:00pm to 7:00pm in The Learning Center, Building G, at Snug Harbor Cultural Center and Botanical Garden, 1000 Richmond Terrace, Staten Island, NY 10301. Auditions will be booked in hour long windows, which will include a 20 minute dance/movement call. To make an audition appointment email Stage Manager, Leanna Klein, at [email protected] with a preferable time window and we will accommodate as best as possible. Self tape auditions/callbacks will be taken on a case-by-case basis.
