A Classic Theatre is holding auditions for actors to participate in an exciting staged reading of “Lysistrata” by Aristophanes. The play is a bawdy comedy celebrating the power of women and a condemnation of war. These women use the only means they had to stop their men fighting, withholding sex! Lysistrata is the heroine who convinces women from Athens and neighboring Sparta to join forces, thus creating what can be called the very first women’s movement! Life being what it is, the play shines a light on the comedy of politics, power, lust and greed.
Roles for female and male actors, from their 20s to their 90s, who have a facility with language and a sense of humor. Auditionees will read from the script. Sides are available for perusal prior to audition upon request. Email email@example.com to request sides.
The production will be directed by Harolyn Sharpe, who is a talented actress/director as well as a professor of speech at FSCJ. Producer Jean Rahner remarked, “This is a golden opportunity for actors to use their acting skills, learn more about a famous classic, and have fun while doing it.”
