Audition Info

Play Synopsis:

It sure is hard to be humble when you're a swashbuckling, egocentric super-hero. But our gallant guy-in-green tries his best as he swaggers through The Somewhat True Tale of Robin Hood, a frantically funny, Monty Pythonesque retelling of the classic. This time around, the legendary legend, in his never-ending quest to aid the needy, encounters a lovely damsel-in-distress (oddly obsessed with skin conditions); an ever-scheming sheriff who would rather bowl a strike than hit a bull's-eye; a gold-hoarding, bad-guy monarch wannabe; and a good-natured "Town's Guy" who manages to make his way into every scene, whether he belongs there or not. Combine them with an expandable band of spoon-wielding Merry Men whose collective IQs equal six, and you've got an irreverent jaunt through Sherwood Forest you won't soon forget!

    • Participants should expect to play theatre games and exercises to help us get to know them , as well as cold reads from the script. 

    • The audition sides and character descriptions are available for download. Participants are strongly encouraged to look through them to get a better idea of the characters and what voices , movements, and expressions they might like to use in their reading. 

    • Be prepared to have fun, be a little silly , and make bold choices!  

  7. Call Back Auditions will be Monday, March 11th, 5:30 - 8:30 pm - if needed. 


  • Tips on Cold Reading: 

    • Research the production: If it is a pre-existing script but you don’t know what part of the script or what character you are reading for, read the whole thing. You should always read as much of the script that is available. 

    • Connect with your scene partner(s). This will help you slow down and really live through the imaginary circumstance. It will also make sure that you don’t keep your eyes on your script but bring them up to where the casting team can see your acting. 

    • Show Variation. If you are asked to read for more than one character, make that character different from the last one you read for. And if you are asked to read for the same character more than once, find a different choice to make in the scene. 



  • Rehearsals will begin on March 25th and generally run every night Mon-Thurs (and later also on Fri) from 5:30 to 8:30 pm.

  • Tech rehearsals, dress rehearsals, performances, and strike are mandatory.

  • Refer to the Actor/Cast Agreement for more information.  ​
