Looks like we’re being asked to audition again, this time with the whole show, because, apparently, the first 10 minutes didn’t give the audition panel “a clear enough idea of what they’re getting.”
Included were notes like: “Didn’t understand why the women were dressed as men, and were pretending to be men.”
No, I’m not kidding.
The audition panel for one of the largest RenFests in the country didn’t understand that women were not allowed on the Elizabethan stage….despite the fact that this was the subject of an Oscar-winning movie, and, even assuming that they had never seen “Shakespeare in Love”….WE TALK ABOUT THE FACT DURING OUR INTRO.
Not sure if we’re going to bother, actually—waiting to hear feedback from my fellow performers.
