Fauquier Community Theatre (FCT) has announced a casting call for William Shakespeare’s As You Like It. Auditions will be held at Fauquier Enterprise Center, 4137 Weeks Drive, Warrenton, on Friday, Nov. 2, at 7:00 p. m. and Saturday, Nov. 3 at 2:00 p. m. (Callbacks by invitation only are Sunday, Nov. 4 at 2:00 p. m.) For more information and to register for an audition, visit FCTstage.org or call 540-349-8760.
As You Like It is one of Shakespeare’s best loved comedies. The most recognizable line from the play begins “All the world’s a stage, and all the men and women merely players: they have their exits and their entrances.”
Director Maggie Bausch is seeking actors ages 15 and up. “I’m also asking people who can sing, dance, or play a musical instrument to come out to audition,” she says. “This is one of the most musical of Shakespeare’s works. People with familiarity and enthusiasm for Shakespeare are especially welcome!” The show is being produced by Don Richardson, a longtime volunteer with many years of experience at FCT, both on stage and off-stage.
As You Like It will be performed from March 8-24, 2019. Friday and Saturday performances are at 7:30 p. m. and Sundays at 2:00 p. m. Reserved seating is available online at FCTstage.org or by calling 540-349-8760. Early reservations are recommended for favorite seating options.
