NOTE: Due to the COVID-19 state of emergency in Massachusetts, Ghost Light Players has postponed callbacks for Part One to the April 9th date listed above.

April 2020: This project begins with actors attending devising sessions, led by theater-maker and Shakespeare scholar Kat Alix-Gaudreau. We will begin with Shakespeare’s text as our jumping-off point and work together with other artists to create our piece. Those involved will be asked to share their unique set of skills with the troupe, bring ideas to the room, and engage with Shakespeare’s text. The finished work will include movement, voice, music, other performance methods, and visual art. It will be a unique piece of theater.
This is our opportunity, as theater-makers, to create the story we want to tell. We will begin with Shakespeare’s texts from Richard III, Henry IV, V, IV and build into one piece that explores the stories of the often-silenced women of Richard III. The work will change from week to week, until we feel it is ready to fully cast.
TBD – Due to the COVID-19 state of emergency, we are rescheduling the dates of this project. Audition dates will be posted here as soon as possible. For more information, please visit our Facebook page or Contact Us directly.
You will be asked to prepare a Shakespeare monologue, and provided with sides during the audition. Auditions will be at the First Church in Marlborough, 37 High St, Marlborough, MA 01752.
At this point, we will invite actors to audition for any roles not yet filled in the newly devised show. Rehearsals will include working with the troupe members involved in devising the piece, and bringing new ideas and skills to the production.
This will be a shorter, more intense period than the previous one, and will culminate in a weekend of workshop performances in Marlborough, MA. Those performing in the workshop piece will be asked to perform in a touring production throughout Central and MetroWest MA, and will be invited to perform in any future theater festival performances. Our touring dates are currently TBD.
