Auditions “The Frogs : A Modern Adaptation”

Torbay Theatre are looking for young actors (aged c.15-25) and crew for their production of Aristophanes’s The Frogs : A Modern Adaptation by Don Zolidis.

Read-throughs/Auditions are taking place on Tuesday 28th November at 5:30pm, and Sunday 26th November at 7pm.

They will be held at the Gate Theatre (behind Torbay shops). Rehearsals will run over the summer break from late December to late January.

The play is a satire, a hilarious and scathing look at highbrow and lowbrow art, in which Dionysus, God of Wine and Poetry, attempts to raise the level of public discourse. He seeks to retrieve Shakespeare from the underworld and give him his own HBO series. Will Hercules, Jane Austen, and Charon the ferryman help or hinder them in their travels through Hades? And how will they escape after they are captured by a chorus of reality-television-loving demon frogs?
