Oedipus Rex by Sophocles, presented by Claremont Dramatic Society, is still looking for some male and young female actors to complete our cast.
Production dates: 26 July - 4 August Masque Theatre Muizenberg.
Please complete the form in the link and you will be contacted to arrange an audition.
Characters we are looking for:
* Shepherd, male, who looks at least 55 years old - this is the shepherd who found Oedipus as a baby. Small but dramatic role
* 3 males needed for the chorus of Theban “elders" - so we need mature actors (preferably at least 35 years of age) who must have excellent articulation and a good sense of poetic rhythm . This is a sizable role and requires versatility.
* Oedipus’ young daughters - girls, aged approx 9 and 11 (these are walk-on roles: we would like two pairs of children that can alternate performances; very little rehearsing required)
There are no inconsequential roles - even the small roles are satisfying roles for an actor, and are highly dramatic, essential to creating the dramatic tension of the play, and we are seeking talented highly dedicated actors for these.
Please note that this is a community theatre production and therefore no remuneration will be paid.
From 5th – 7th April the Masque Theatre will feature a ‘play reading’ of David Lindsay-Abaire’s Rabbit Hole (2010), brought to life by Circle Productions. Rabbit Hole follows the story of a family who are trying to cling to hope and humour in the face of the unbridled grief of losing their 4-year-old son. The play showcases raw emotion of every colour, each done justice by a talented local cast. MADS members and the general public alike are encouraged to experience this unique performance for only R80 per ticket.
