Audition: Twelfth Night
Auditions for The Tipsy Shakespeare Project's upcoming production of TWELFTH NIGHT.
By William Shakespeare
Directed by Isaac Young
Production Stage Manager: TBD
The Tipsy Shakespeare Project is seeking a diverse ensemble of actors over 21 years of age who are willing to bring their full selves to the words of William Shakespeare over a fast-paced rehearsal process.
We encourage all actors to audition for the role they feel represents their talents best, regardless of age; appearance; cultural origin; sex; gender; or ability. We will be considering all persons for all roles, unless requested otherwise.
We are only accepting non-equity submissions at this time.
Synopsis: After a massive storm leaves Viola and her twin brother stranded on the shore of Illyria, she disguises herself as a man for her own protection. What follows is the classic story about a girl dressed as a boy who falls in love with a boy who loves a girl who loves the girl dressed as a boy. Make sense? Considered one of Shakespeare’s greatest comedies,Twelfth Night is a tale of music, drunken revelry, and the kind of love that turns us all into fools.

VIOLA - A young woman who is shipwrecked on the shores of Illyria. She disguises herself as a young man called Cesario and goes to work for Duke Orsino.
