To request an audition time, email headshot and resume to firstname.lastname@example.org. Previous professional Shakespeare experience is required. Actors will be asked to create a unique, distinct voice for each character and will participate in creating foley sound effects. Actors will be paid a small stipend.
Lean & Hungry sets Shakespeare's classic comedy As You Like It in the flower-child era of the 1960s. Banished from the well-bred, wealthy halls of their childhood home, Celia and Rosaling seek refuge at Arden, a giant, Woodstock-esque concert. What follows is peace, love and music as the characters woo, philosophize and enjoy the freedom of life away from the constraints of stuffy society.
