Coriolanus Auditions


The Rochester Community Players invites actors to audition for the Shakespeare Players’ production of William Shakespeare’s Coriolanus, running November 10 through 18, 2017 at MuCCC, the Multi-use Community Cultural Center.

Auditions will be June 5 and 6; rehearsals begin immediately after Labor Day. Coriolanus will be directed by John Jaeger, whose recent productions include the critically acclaimed Merchant of Venice and King Lear.


Set in the days of the early Roman Republic, Coriolanus tells the story of war hero Caius Martius, nicknamed Coriolanus, as he becomes embroiled in Roman politics and later turns against the state he once defended.


This production will be set in in the 21st century, with its 24/7 news cycle. Rome is a world where the 1-percenters rule and the common people have taken to the streets. Political activism faces the powerful status quo. Foreign military campaigns stretch domestic resources thin. Does this sound familiar?

Visit the event page for all the details and to submit your audition form online.
