BPA to host joint two-show auditions

Bainbridge Performing Arts will host combined auditions for upcoming productions of “Macbeth” and “Pride And Prejudice” Sunday, Feb. 9 and Monday, Feb. 10.

“Pride And Prejudice” includes roles for about 10 actors, age 18 and older, and “Macbeth” requires about 20 actors, age 12 and older.

Auditions will be held Sunday from 5:30 to 9:30 p.m. and Monday from 6:40 to 9:30 p.m.

Visit www.bainbridgeperformingarts.org for a complete listing of roles.

Those auditioning for either or both productions are required to prepare two approximately 1-minute contrasting monologues — one contemporary and one classic.

For those auditioning for “Macbeth” only, the classic monologue should be Shakespeare.

British Received Pronunciation accents will be used for “Pride And Prejudice,” but are not required for performing the monologue.

Run dates for “Pride And Prejudice” are May 1-3, May 8-10, and May 15-17, with a special pay-what-you-can preview on April 30.

Based on the book by Jane Austen, adapted by Kate Hamill, and directed by Pete Benson, this isn’t your grandmother’s Austen.

Bold, surprising, boisterous, and timely, this “Pride And Prejudice,” for a new era explores the absurdities and thrills of finding your perfect (or imperfect) match in life.

Rehearsals extend March 9 through April 29; Mondays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays from 6:40 to 9:40 p.m. plus Saturdays from 11:30 a.m. to 5 p.m.

The majority of rehearsals will be held at BPA, with a few at Theatre Puget Sound in Seattle.

Cast members will be provided with walk-on ferry passes for rehearsals and performances.

“Macbeth” will be the latest installment in The Bard at Bloedel: BPA’s eighth annual Summertime Shakespeare performance.

Prophecies, ambition, murder, and mayhem abound in Shakespeare’s spellbinding psychological thriller, set in the beguiling meadow at Bloedel Reserve, and directed by BPA’s Director of Education, Pete Benson.

Run dates are July 9-12, July 16-19, July 22-24, and July 26; with a special pay-what-you-can preview on July 8.

Rehearsals extend May 18 through July 8, Mondays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays from 6:40 to 9:40 p.m. plus Saturdays from 11:30 a.m. to 5 p.m.

All rehearsals will be held at BPA or Bloedel Reserve, and Seattle-area cast members will be provided with walk-on ferry passes for rehearsals and performances.
