STC Theatre to hold auditions for Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet

McAllen, TX (November 16, 2015) – South Texas College (STC) Theatre will hold auditions for its February 2015 production of William Shakespeare’s classic Romeo and Juliet December 1 – 2, from 7:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. at the STC Cooper Center for Communication Arts Black Box Theatre, located at 3201 W. Pecan Blvd. in McAllen. All STC and Rio Grande Valley community members, ages 18 and over, are welcome to audition.

This classic play portrays a long feud between the Montague and Capulet families which disrupts the city of Verona and causes tragic results for Romeo and Juliet.  Revenge, love, and a secret marriage force the young star-crossed lovers to grow up quickly – and fate causes them to commit suicide in despair.

“Creating the world in a Shakespeare play tempts any willing theatrical designer or director to do justice to the words he left us,” says Romeo and Juliet Director Marcela Garza. “When the opportunity presents itself, why not take it?”

The director is requesting a prepared Shakespearian monologue for the audition. A cold reading from the script will also be made available for those who do not have a monologue prepared. The director is looking for a large cast of actors, men and women, to play the numerous roles in this production. Romeo and Juliet is scheduled for performance at the STC Cooper Center for Communication Arts Main Stage February 25-28, 2016.
