Audition Details

We are holding auditions for a brand new ALL FEMALE production of Othello. Before auditioning there are a few things to take note of.

This is an ALL FEMALE cast and actresses should know that the traditional male characters shall be portrayed as female. You will thus have to be comfortable with same-sex relationships as well as possibly kissing on stage.

Only the following 3 roles are still available:

  • Othello
  • Emilia
  • Cassio

This is a Paid job.

Only Cape Town Auditions.
