Shakespeare on Main Street to hold auditions for modern-day “Hamlet”

Sunday, Sept. 25 at 11 a.m.—RUTLAND—Shakespeare on Main Street will hold auditions for its 2017 summer production of “Hamlet: 2017,” on Sept. 25, from 11 a.m.-1 p.m. at Drum Journeys of Earth Rhythm Hall, Building 5, 2nd Floor, Howe Center, 1 Scale Ave., Rutland.
The play will be set in modern day, drawing the audience to explore how Shakespeare’s words are relevant to today. The key themes behind “Hamlet” are the price of vengeance, effects of deception, madness and the consequences of corruption. The themes that Shakespeare expresses in “Hamlet” are just as relevant to today’s society, perhaps even more so.
Actors age 18 and up wanting to audition should prepare a one-minute monologue from the play, or a comparable monologue. It does not need to be memorized— just well prepared.
Those unable to attend may submit an MP4 video, or YouTube video link to
