New England Shakespeare 2008 Auditions

Here's something I don't post much about, but I'd like to : casting calls.  I stumbled across the New England Shakespeare Festival auditions page for their 2008 touring production of Much Adoe About Nothing (that's how they're spelling it). 

...seeking actors and actresses of all ages and types, non-traditional casting, all roles open, for its upcoming summer tour of Much adoe about Nothing. Auditions by appointment will be held in the spring....

They are also hiring tech interns, a stage manager and a wardrobe supervisor.

So if you've always wondered how you can get in on the Shakespeare action, and you want to tour New England, here's your chance.  All performers are paid, and company members receive housing and transportation while on tour.

(I shouldn't have to say this, but I have no affiliation with this organization, and nobody came to me asking me to post this announcement.  I really did just find it and think it worthy of posting.  Yadda yadda yadda, blah blah blah.)

Please help--I was doing a search on upcoming performances and ran across The Compleat Works of Wm Shakespeare Abridged. It was scheduled for some March shows and it was in New England but I can't find the website anywhere--has anyone heard of it? Please let me know if you have--kimberleyg@adelphia.net

Thanks!

Kim,

The show you're thinking of is The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (Abridged), originally written and produced by the The Reduced Shakespeare Company. The show is performed by the official company, as well as community or small theaters that license the rights.
