Brief Synopsis: Known historically as “The Bad King”, King John causes a wave of upheaval throughout England and France when he bucks the normal rules of succession and seizes the monarchy for himself as opposed to his young nephew. This combined with his other questionable ruling tactics puts him at odds with France, the Vatican, and his own countrymen. Wars break out, deceptions are devised, and the two countries are thrust into mayhem. All this is observed and commented on by one of John’s only loyal supporters, The Bastard.

Are the Players ready? Auditions for The Revenger’s Tragedy.


Are the players ready? The Prenzie Players present: auditions for The Revenger’s Tragedy, written by Thomas Middleton and directed by Matt Moody.

“Vindici’s betrothed was murdered by the Duke for refusing his advances. Vindici has returned home to seek revenge, on the Duke and all of his corrupt family. He will use anything or anyone in this pursuit. The Revenger’s tragedy is a classic story on the true cost of vengeance told with depth, blood and dark humor.”

Season 13 Auditions!

We will be holding auditions for both William Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar and Antony & Cleopatra. You are welcome to audition for one or both shows. Additionally, because there are a few characters that appear in both Julius Caesar AND Antony & Cleopatra, the actors who portray these characters will be cast in both shows. A truly unique experience!
