FOMO (Or What Shakespeare Did During the Plague)

Auditions for

FOMO

(Or What Shakespeare Did During the Plague)

A Quarantimes Play

Directed by Jamie Dunsdon

When the plague hit London, the greatest playwright in history was forced to close his theatre doors.

And then he got to work.

He stained a woman's hands with blood, wove a tapestry of forbidden love, and enchanted a solitary man's island with magic. He wrote plays, breathed life into sonnets, invented words, and imagined worlds.

He put a bear in a play.

Now let's see if we can do the same.

FOMO or What Shakespeare Did During the Plague will be a collectively-created play, rehearsed and performed online. A mix of contemporary and classical motifs, styles, fears, and desires woven into a new narrative.

Audition Dates:

June 24 - June 25, 2020

Creation dates:

July 13 - 17, 2020

Rehearsal dates:

July 20 - 31, 2020

Tech/Performance:

August 1 - 9, 2020

Who can audition:

This show may contain some adult content and will be an intensive acting and creation process, and as such, we are only auditioning young people who are entering grade 10-12 in the fall, or who have just graduated from grade 12.

What to prepare for the audition:

Auditions will be held on Zoom. Please be prepared to perform any contemporary monologue, performed to the computer camera as though the character you are speaking to is also on zoom. Alternatively, you could write a Shakespearean style sonnet about a contemporary issue, and perform that as the character who wrote it.

If you have never been in a CYPT play, please send a headshot and performance resume to [email protected]

How to sign up:

Please click on the sign-up link below. Please ensure you have Zoom on a device before auditioning. If you don't currently own or have access to a Zoom-enabled device, please contact [email protected] and we will set you up!
