Casting the Spicy Witch Productions Spring 2019 Repertory Season. Our seventh repertory season pairs Shakespeare's Measure for Measure, with the world premiere of The Virtuous Fall of the Girls from Our Lady of Sorrows a hilarious new play by SWP Writer-in-Residence Gina Femia inspired by Shakespeare's classic problem play and set in a Brooklyn Catholic girls' school. Both plays will be performed by the same cast in alternating repertory.
Spicy Witch Productions is committed to creating an inclusive ensemble of diverse perspectives. Actors of all ethnic backgrounds, disabled, trans, and gender non-conforming actors, and actors of all ages are actively encouraged to submit for all available roles. Due to the repertory nature of the company, all actors should have a strong command of classical text and good weekend and evening availability in April and May.
