We Happy Few has been busy laying the ground work for our upcoming show, THE TEMPEST. One of the most important pieces is the casting, which is coming together as we speak. Part of WHF’s mission statement is to present “small cast, ensemble productions” which means focusing on casting a group of extra-talented actors.
During call backs this weekend and next, director Hannah Todd is looking for a little something special. Actors are not just asked to read scenes, but also complete movement exercises, sing a piece of music with and without accompaniment, and explore characters with the creative team. Because 7 of our 8 actors will be in multiple roles, versatility is also being taken into account.
Decisions about casting will be completed soon, and then the rehearsal process will begin! The WHF team is excited about where a great cast can take this show under the stewardship of our fearless leaders.
