Advice To The Players Holding Auditions for Shakespeare's Richard III

SANDWICH — Advice To The Players is looking for professional, community and student actors for its production Richard III. Open auditions will be on Sunday, November 17 between 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. in the upstairs theater at the Sandwich Town Hall.

The production will run from March 7- 23, 2014 and will be performed at the Town Hall Theater in Sandwich, at Your Theatre in North Conway and at several area high schools.

Directed by company veteran and Plymouth State University graduate Andrew Codispoti, Richard III is the personal and autobiographical story of a consummate trickster brilliant enough to get away with it -- almost to the very end. "Richard is akin to other archetypal tricksters:" states Codispoti, "Loki, Coyote, and even Shakespeare's own Puck or Ariel. Like these, he is a shapeshifter, assuming the needed role for every situation."

Advice To The Players is a unique organization that uses professional, community and student actors in its productions and all are welcome to try out. Bring a resume and a headshot if you have them and be prepared with one serious and one comic piece totaling three minutes. To schedule, email This email address is being protected from spambots.
