Boadicea Haranguing The Britons. John Opie, R.A. (1761-1807). Oil On Canvas.
We Three is looking to cast the last member of our six-person ensemble for our September production of The Passion of Boudicca. We are seeking experienced actor-combatants.
The Passion of Boudicca is a new Elizabethan-style verse play following the military campaign of the legendary queen of the Britons, who sought to expel the Roman Empire from her borders.
All performers receive a token payment of $50, due no later than September 9 (opening weekend).
If interested, please send your resume to firstname.lastname@example.org.
All actors will be allowed to read the script before accepting their role.
As actor-combatants, the Ensemble will be principal participants in two-to-four alarum scenes (as our schedule allows). The actors playing Gaius and Mutius will participate in two other fight scenes with lead actors.
All violence will be managed by a professionally-trained violence director (Christopher Elst) and fight-captained by an actor selected from the Ensemble (Lana Whittington).
Time Commitment: Ensemble will be asked to meet between four and eight times in July, as schedules allow, to focus on alarum fights. Rehearsal time will also be made in August (no more than once or twice a week). The actors playing the 1st Briton, 2nd Briton and Roman Knight will be expected to attend any rehearsals dealing with their respective scenes. The actors playing Gaius, Mutius, and the sixth non-speaking role will be asked to attend relevant scenes at their discretion. There will be at least four full-runs before Tech, featuring the alarums, in the latter half of August.
