Finally -- the women of Shakespeare's plays tell their side of the story! The Real Problem is a one-act comedy by Bruce Kane and directed by longtime theater director, Tony Korol-Evans, who recently moved to the Eastern Shore. The Real Problem tells what happens when these very different women spill the tea about life, love, and liberty (or the lack thereof). The show will be a part of Arts Enter Cape Charles's One-Act Play Festival at the Historic Palace Theatre.
Audition: 12:00 pm Sat, Jan 28 at the Palace Theatre, Cape Charles

All auditioners will read a short monologue from the play. It's not necessary that you memorize it, but we are looking for your sense of humor and characterization as you read. You can find the play here. The monologue you'll read is the very last line in the play, spoken by Anne Boleyn. During the audition, you'll read a few scenes with other auditioners. Come prepared to have fun in a supportive, encouraging environment!
