Ann Arbor Civic Theatre announces auditions for Shakespeare’s timeless tragedy, Othello, directed by David Widmayer. Auditions take place Sunday, August 7 at 4:00 PM and Monday, August 8 at 7:00 PM at the A2CT Studio (322 W. Ann Street, Ann Arbor, MI 48104). Callbacks are scheduled for 7:00 PM on Wednesday, August 10, location TBA. Text work will begin Wednesday, August 24, and rehearsals start Sunday, September 4.

Ann Arbor Civic Theatre is seeking ten to fifteen diverse actors for their production of Othello. With the original Shakespearean language intact, this production will be set at a lavish hotel in Saigon during the height of the Vietnam War. A new cut of the script by director David Widmayer emphasizes the role of war abroad and dramatic social change at home in shaping the characters’ attitudes and actions. No stage combat experience is necessary - actors will all have the opportunity to work with Melissa Freilich, a stage combat professional.
