Amhert – theater auditions for fall season
for The Renaissance Center Theater Company’s fall production,
Francis Beaumont’s ground breaking 17th century comedy, Knight of the Burning
Auditions are open to all. Please come ready to cold read and prepared to list
scheduling conflicts for September and October. A prepared monologue would be
welcome but is not necessary; it won’t count against you if you do not have one.
Francis Beaumont’s ‘Knight of the Burning Pestle,’ is a staggeringly funny
satire of the English Renaissance stage and popular treatments of chivalric
The play revolves around two central plots: the first a parody of early
modern city comedies which focuses on an apprentice who is in love with his
master’s daughter, while the second expounds upon the
mis-adventures of a heroic grocer named Rafe.
The play is filled with comic fights, romance, silly monologues, and ridiculous characters, all written in a
style which seems more like a Monty Python film than a Shakespearean comedy.
Auditions are scheduled for Saturday, August 29 and Sunday, August 30.
Auditions will be held at the UMass Renaissance Center, 650 East Pleasant Street, Amherst,
from 5-7pm. The show runs October 9-11, 15-18.
Please email the director, Nate Leonard, at firstname.lastname@example.org with
questions. For directions to the Renaissance Center, call 413-577-3600
