Production Description

Casting "Hamlet," to rehearse and perform in and around Reggio Emilia, Italy with Teatro delle Due, an Italian non-profit organization birthed in Reggio Emilia, Italy. The organization's main activity consists of an annual cultural exchange, bringing professional actors from the United States to the Italian city of Reggio Emilia every year, in order to present a shortened Shakespeare play in its original English. The shows are tailored foremost to a high school audience and accompanied by free educational workshops held in schools in order to convey the meaning of the play to the students and further involve them in the project. There are also multiple performances open to the public in our home theater, Teatro Piccolo Orologio, as well as in Bologna.

Rehearsal and Production Dates & Locations

Commitment dates run January 17-March 2, 2015 (three weeks of rehearsals, including workshops the second and third weeks, followed by three weeks of performances with two shows/day) in Italy.

Compensation & Union Contract Details

Pays: 600 Euro stipend, paid in half on your arrival weekend in Italy, and then the other half once the show opens; round-trip airfare, furnished housing provided (you will live in an apartment with one or two other actors, but will have your own room).
