Auditions for Prisoner of Zenda

Rage - Rage Theatrics will hold auditions Monday, November 3 and Tuesday, November 4 at 6:00 PM for the upcoming production of The Prisoner of Zenda. This classic tale of romance, intrigue, and swordplay will be Rage Theatrics' first presentation of a full-length play. Auditions will take place at Old Brick, 26 E. Market Street in Iowa City. Actors should come prepared for cold readings and dressed to move for a fight call; please check the Rage website for character descriptions. Theatre and stage combat experience is welcome, but not required. If you wish to audition but are unavailable Nov. 3 & 4, please call to request an alternative time. For more information, contact Scott Lewis at, (319) 936-1847, or visit the website.

The Prisoner of Zenda begins with the arrival in Ruritania of Rudolph Rassendyll, an Englishman who bears a remarkable resemblance to King Rudolph. After a chance meeting, the King befriends Rassendyll and the Englishman is drawn into a plot by the King's brother to usurp the throne. What follows is a comedic adventure of impersonation, romance, and swashbuckling that will take place in January 2009 at Space/Place Theater.
