One week left: March Madness call for scripts

The deadline for the March Madness call for scripts is only one week away!

March Madness is an annual theatrical competition hosted by the Kitchener-Waterloo Little Theatre (KWLT).  Production teams are giving a short script one night, audition their actors the next day, and then perform a week later.  It’s a night of theatrical mayhem, with one play seen through some very different artistic lenses.

The March Madness steering committee is looking for the script that makes it all happen this year.  All playwrights and would-be playwrights are invited to submit scripts for consideration.

Auditions: Hamlet

Written by Shakespeare
Directed by Jim Hill

NOTE: Location address updated to the CEI studio space, rather than their admin office.

Suicide, incest, murder, guilt, grief, mortality and unrequited love; Hamlet is poem unlimited. Neither constrained by time nor the tropes of tragedy, Hamlet has evolved into secular scripture, and in it can be found all these things and more. Need it be constrained as well by gender roles? Women have played the title role before, but never have they played Hamlet as a young woman. What if Ophelia were male? Polonius an old woman? Gertrude a fickle man, and Claudius a scheming adulterous female? Would we feel differently about the characters? Would it change our preconceptions? In this production you will see and experience a familiar story in a brand new light. It’s Hamlet, reversed.
