Eclectic Full Contact theatre is seeking submissions for their upcoming prodcution of RICHARD III by William Shakespeare.
Before the Game of Thrones, there was this masterpiece.
Will Richard stop at nothing to reach the pinnacle of power? Will he act unethically, unlawfully? Deceive, seduce, even commit murder? Come on, you think George R.R. Martin invented this stuff? Meet the unlikely man who schemed so cleverly (and bloodily), we're still talking about him today.
Auditions are July 21st 11am-1pm, and July 22nd-24th 6:30-10:30pm at the Athenaeum Theatre in Studio 1 2936 N Southport.
