Riverona Auditions

Riverona Audition Notice

Do you love Shakespeare?

Do you love teen dramas?

Do you love the idea of seeing the two all mashed up together?

Attention actors! In 2023, Riverona took Calgary audiences by storm and Full Circle Theatre is thrilled to announce that we are now holding auditions for the full production this summer. (Yes, that is all four episodes.)

Come join us for auditions on Wednesday, April 10 (6-10 pm) and Tuesday, April 16 (6-10 pm) in the Boardroom at the Morpheus Rehearsal Space (3512 5 Ave NW)

A high concept and hilarious retelling of Romeo and Juliet, this brand-new script has been described as Riverdale meets Wet Hot American Summer meets… well, Shakespeare.

Riverona

Do you love Shakespeare? Do you also love (or love to hate) Riverdale? Finally, how about how the teenagers on every teen drama tv show are essentially played by 30 year olds? (And their parents are played by 35 year olds?)

Y’all. Have we got the project for you!

Riverona will be a 4 “episode” theatrical adaptation of Romeo and Juliet, all done up in a teen drama hat. The script seamlessly blends original text with contemporary wit, guaranteed to make you cry laughing. And maybe cry for real. Full Circle Theatre is dissecting tropes and exploring text the most fun way we can.

Full Circle Theatre is a Calgary-based collective of artists who first came together in 2010. We are committed to the celebration of women in theatre. As a group, we produce classical works and write new plays – we just want to create! We strive to serve as a venue for young artists to discover their voice through movement and text, playing great roles and creating greater ones in an inclusive and open atmosphere.
