SSCC Theatre is pleased to announce upcoming auditions for the summer production of William Shakespeare’s “Macbeth.” Open to community members and students, auditions will be held 6:30 p.m. Friday, April 18, and 10 a.m. Saturday, April 19, in the Edward K. Daniels Auditorium on Southern State Community College’s Central Campus, 100 Hobart Drive, Hillsboro.
Macbeth, a brave Scottish general, receives a prophecy from a trio of witches that one day he will become King of Scotland. Consumed by ambition and spurred to action by his wife, Macbeth murders the king and takes the throne for himself. His reign is racked by guilt and paranoia, and he soon becomes a tyrannical ruler as he is forced to commit more and more murders to protect himself from enmity and suspicion. The bloodbath swiftly takes Macbeth and Lady Macbeth into realms of arrogance, madness, and death.
Those interested in auditioning should prepare and memorize a one- to two-minute classical monologue. It does not have to be Shakespeare, nor from “Macbeth.” If you’re interested in auditioning, but unavailable to attend either audition date, please contact Rainee Angles to schedule an alternate audition date prior to April 18.
“Macbeth,” directed by Rainee Angles, will be performed July 25-27 and is the final show of SSCC Theatre’s 10th anniversary celebration. For more information about “Macbeth,” available roles, and a rehearsal schedule, please visit the audition page at www.sscctheatre.com.
