The Woman in Black is a ghost story. Beautifully written, it uses strong, well-defined characters to pull the audience into the world of the story. The rehearsals will include an intense process of physical and emotional work as we discover the beating heart of this spooky and thrilling tale.
Kipps – Male, Late 30’s – 50’s. A retired lawyer. Portrays a variety of roles throughout the show. Must be versatile and comfortable with physical acting.
Actor – Male, 20’s – early 30’s. An aspiring actor, taking on additional work by helping Kipps tell his story. Portrays Kipps as a younger man. Must be youthful in energy and comfortable with portraying two different roles.
The Woman – Female, 20’s – 30’s. Described as gaunt and pale, suffering from a wasting disease. Must be comfortable with physical improv. This character has no spoken dialogue – communicates entirely through physical actions.
Please prepare a short (1-2 minute), dramatic monologue for auditions. You may also choose to do a cold reading and may be asked to perform a short improvisation. Any women auditioning for the Woman in Black role should be prepared to do physical improvisation work as well.
