Zenith Players is seeking actors for a fun and chilly voyage through one of Shakespeare’s most beloved comedies. Follow these lively characters through an exploration of a new (and frozen) world. All roles are open and actors of all ethnicities, abilities, genders, and orientations are encouraged to attend. This piece will be a non-traditional though highly stylized imagining of Twelfth Night. We are seeking fearless actors with the ability to learn and have fun along the way.
Viola - “shipwrecked” lady new to the land. Disguised herself as a young man (Cesario) and works for Orsino. Lead.
Olivia - orphaned and mourning the loss of her recently deceased brother. Strong willed and the leader of her own house.
Orsino - Leader. Seemingly obsessed with love. “Fashionably melancholy”
Feste - Clown/Fool sings/dances/disrupts organization and social order. Agent of chaos.
Sebastian - Viola's twin brother. One of the only characters who does not deceive those around him.
Malvolio - The steward of Olivia's "house" who is analytical and frankly annoying to the remaining members of the household.
Sea Captain - Responsible for Viola's survival upon arrival. He provides much needed loyalty and reassurance to Viola. Seeking a larger than life "explorer" type for this role.
Maria - Following under Olivia's household, she is quick witted and devises the pranks to be played on Malvolio.
Sir Toby - Olivia's drunk relation, not contributing much to the place, but still utilizing much of the resources. Eventual romantic opposite of Maria.
Sir Andrew - Friend of Toby and wishful suitor of Olivia.
Antonio - "local" who helps rescue Sebastian.
