Auditions: Othello


Mish Mash Media is looking for an all female cast for the Shakespearean tragedy: ‘Othello’.
The cast should know that the traditional male characters shall be portrayed as female. You will thus have to be comfortable with same-sex relationships as well as possibly kissing on stage.

Only the following 3 roles are still available:


• Black Woman – preferably taller than 170cm. • Age 27- 40 (Must look older than Desdemona, so if you can play/look older do still audition.) • Can have any hair type – long, short, or even dreadlocks.
• White or Asian transgender woman (You have to have transitioned from male to female. This is very important, because it is an all-female cast.) • Any height. • Age 25-35 (Must look older than Desdemona, so if you can play/look older do still audition.)
• White or Asian woman – no taller than 166cm. • Age 19 – 24 (Actress can be older but must look the age.) • Short hair or willing to cut for performances. Any colour hair.
