Kingsmen Shakespeare Company is taking AEA submissions for the role of Richard, Duke of Gloucester, for its summer Shakespeare Festival production of Richard III directed by Ryan Lee. This is an eight week contract and rehearsals begin June 2 in Thousand Oaks. Please submit electronically on Actors Access by Friday, March 6. You must be a classically trained actor with significant Shakespeare experience to be considered. Richard (Male, 35-45) is a master manipulator who uses his wit, charm, and charisma to deceive everyone into believing that he is not a villain as he viciously carves his way to the throne. Bitter, ambitious, and utterly ruthless, he nonetheless manages to fool those closest to him. Born with a physical deformity that leads some to call him a “bottled spider,” “poisonous bunchedbacked toad,” and other insults. www.actorsaccess.com.
