CASTING CALL: Actors and actresses

Could you be the next Preeya or Raza? 

Posted: 21.05.13

At Asiana we love supporting new, up and coming talent and have been there from the beginning for big name celebrities like Raghav, Jay Sean, Upen Patel, Preeya Kalidas and Karen David.

When we heard the amazing dance-theatre company Phizzical were on the hunt for talent to star in their forthcoming production, a modern, South Asian version of Shakespeare’s Cymbeline, we had to let you know!

Chances like this rarely come along, so if you can act, dance and play a musical instrument, this is your opportunity to be seen and considered by one of the most influential Artistic Directors in the UK, Samir Bhamra.

Phizzical are looking for spectacular performers of any ethnicity to take part in an ensemble production where all performers play multiple characters.

Auditions will be taking place in London and Leicester from 12 June onwards. The audition process will be a chat with the director, reading a prepared monologue from the original Shakespearean text and playing a musical instrument/singing. 



Rehearsals will take place 19 August to 13 September and there will also be a two day production symposium in July that those selected will need to attend.
The production will open 14 September and tour until 5 December 2013. 
 
Roles:

King Cymbeline
He is a father who was once a strong king, but he is now a broken, fading man. 




Queen

She is the king’s second wife and has a son from a previous marriage. She plots to ensure that her son succeeds the king. 
May be required to dance.



Cloten
The king's step son (and the Queen's son). He is a fool with a villainous edge. 
In terms of physicality, we are looking for a tall muscular man to play this part.
 


Iachimo

A rakish and smooth-talking womaniser. We are looking for a muscular man to play this part. 
 


Posthumous

A man who is highly regarded and praised. He was raised at the court and is madly in love with the princess.

In terms of physicality, we are looking for a tall muscular man, ideally with a strong voice to play this part.
 


Innogen

A virtuous, strong and fiery princess who is in love with Posthumous. She has to clear her name when she is wrongly implicated.  

May be required to dance.

If you think you have what it takes to fill one of these roles email your headshot and performance CV to info@phizzical.com with the subject Casting: Cymbeline. GOOD LUCK!
