Coriolanus: call for actors

Three more actors needed for the Shakespeare Players of Rochester production of William Shakespeare’s Coriolanus, with performances Nov. 10–18 at MuCCC Theatre. Rehearsals begin Sept. 5 and will overlap with Fringe.

This production will be set in in the 21st century with a 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?


Available Roles

  • Volscian lieutenant: a youngish man who opposes the title character’s rise to power. Looking for a man in his 30s or 20s, preferably with size or build suggesting strength.
  • Newscaster: a role comprising several smaller roles and tailored to the contemporary theme of the play, bringing politics to a modern audience 24-7. Can be any gender or age.
  • Ensemble: An actor who has the versatility to portray several different small-but-important roles during the course of the play.
