Bainbridge Performing Arts is pleased to announce AUDITIONS for ROMEO & JULIET, March 13 and 15 at BPA. One of the Bard’s most popular romantic tragedies, ROMEO & JULIET centers on a long feud between the Montague and Capulet families that disrupts the city of Verona and causes tragic results for Romeo and Juliet. Revenge, love, and a secret marriage force the young star-crossed lovers to grow up quickly — and fate causes them to take their own lives in despair. BPA transforms the Bloedel meadow in this classic tale that’s not to be missed.

Character Breakdown / Project Needs
ROMEO & JULIET includes roles for 12 – 16 Men, ages 16 and up and 5 – 10 Women, ages 16 and up.
ROMEO: The son and heir of Montague and Lady Montague. A young man of 16. Romantic, passionate, sensitive, poetic, loyal to his friends.
JULIET: The daughter of Capulet and Lady Capulet. 13 years of age. Naive, headstrong, impulsive, passionate, courageous.
FRIAR LAWRENCE: A Franciscan friar, friend to both Romeo and Juliet. Civic-minded, a proponent of moderation, and always ready with a plan.

THE NURSE: Juliet’s nurse who breast-fed Juliet when she was a baby and has cared for Juliet her entire life. Earnest, long-winded, and sentimental.
TYBALT: A Capulet, Juliet’s cousin on her mother’s side. Vain, fashionable, supremely aware of courtesy and the lack of it. Tybalt is aggressive and quick to draw his sword when he perceives insult.
CAPULET: The patriarch of the Capulet family, father of Juliet, husband of Lady Capulet, and enemy, for unexplained reasons, of Montague. Often prudent, he commands respect and propriety, but flies into a rage when either is lacking.
LADY CAPULET: Juliet’s mother, Capulet’s wife. A woman who herself married young She is an ineffectual mother, relying on the Nurse for moral and pragmatic support.
MONTAGUE: Romeo’s father, the patriarch of the Montague clan and bitter enemy of Capulet.
