There are many speaking roles for almost all ages and genders in “Romeo and Juliet.” Brad encourages all those wishing to audition to be familiar with the script and story. The material is public domain and can be easily accessed on the internet or at your public library. You are encouraged to come prepared with a reading as the character you most would like to portray; however, you are also welcome to do a “cold” reading with a selected section from the director. Consider trying out for this one! There are a lot of fun non-speaking roles, too!!
