We will be casting for the following roles:

We strongly encourage actors of all ethnic backgrounds to audition.
PLEASE NOTE: We are only casting for female roles.
Actors will be asked to bring in one CLASSICAL MONOLOGUE. Anything in verse will do. Actors will also be asked to cold-read sides from play. It is strongly recommended that actors read Cyrano de Bergerac or at least familiarize themselves with the plot characters; having watched the Steve Martin film Roxane will do in a pinch.
ABOUT THE PLAY:
Madeleine Robin Known As Roxane is an imaginative ‘what if’ based on Edmund Rostand’s classic play, Cyrano de Bergerac. Christian died in the war years ago; Roxane watches her beloved cousin, Cyrano, died in front of her as he reveals the truth about his and Christian’s deceit. So… now what?
