Cast Breakdown

Seeking a total of six non-Equity performers to play various roles in Comedy of Errors, directed by Caitlin Lowans. Actors excited about connecting to audiences; bold physical comedy; and creating multiple distinct comic characters especially encouraged. Actors will be paid a weekly stipend during rehearsals and then a per performance stipend. Play will be performed for free evenings and weekends at community sites in Colorado Springs and surrounding communities in July and August; in the fall, the production will perform occasional Monday and Fridays at middle and high schools. This is a non-Equity tour.
