Shakespeare The Bard: Over the top with a huge ego. A renaissance rock star. Think Mick Jagger. Seeking a comedic actor with a killer pop/rock voice, tap dance skills a plus. (rock tenor)

     Gender: Male Age: 30 to 40 Vocal range top: Ab4 Vocal range bottom: Ab2 

 

Nick Bottom: A struggling renaissance writer at the end of his rope. Nigel’s older brother. Incredibly jealous of the success of William Shakespeare and will do anything to beat him. Seeking a great comedic actor who sings, tap dance skill a plus. (Baritone)

Nigel Bottom: Nick’s younger brother. A sweetly naïve young writer and poet, perhaps a little awkward. He falls in love with Portia, a Puritan, and ultimately finds confidence in himself through art and love. (High baritone/tenor).

Bea Nick’s wife and “Right Hand Man”: She loves and supports him despite his questionable decision making and lack of success. Bea resorts to dressing up like a male to make ends meet and to prove to Nick she can be an actor. Seeking a comedic actress who can belt.
