We will be casting gender and race ‘blind’, meaning we will select the cast according to the right feel they have for the part, regardless of whether they are male or female. If we have a ‘Prospera’ there will be a little script adaptation required. The characters as written are overwhelmingly male, but don’t let that get in the way, if you want to be involved. Here’s a list of the characters:

  • Alonso, King of Naples
  • Sebastian, his brother
  • Prospero, the rightful Duke of Milan
  • Antonio, his brother, the usurping Duke of Milan
  • Ferdinand, son of the King of Naples
  • Gonzalo, an honest old councillor
  • Adrian and Francisco, Lords
  • Caliban, a ‘savage and deformed’ slave (to Prospero)
  • Trinculo, a jester
  • Stephano, a drunken butler
  • Master Boatswain
  • Mariners
  • Miranda, daughter of Prospero
  • Ariel, an airy spirit (will involve some singing)
  • Iris, Juno and Ceres, Goddesses (we may cut their scene if it makes the play too long)
