Production Description

Casting "The Remarkable and Perplexing Case of Henry Hudson" by Maggie Mancinelli-Cahill and Maureen Aumand for Capital Repertory Theatre's 2013-14 season. Hero or scoundrel? Victim or villain? The English navigator Henry Hudson remains an enigmatic figure whose persistence and determination carried him up the Hudson River and onto the pages of history. Here Hudson’s tale is told from several points of view: that of Hudson himself, Hudson’s Crew and again through the eyes of the Native Americans. Seeking 4 versatile, ethnically diverse, physically agile, quick study actors able to do a British accent. For the past decade, Capital Repertory Theatre’s TYA touring “On The Go” productions have been presented in a variety of schools and environments throughout the Capital Region to very diverse audiences.

Actors must also be collegial and adaptive. The winter tour features "Harriet Tells It Like It Is" while the spring tour features "The Remarkable and Perplexing Case of Henry Hudson."
