  • I love Antigone <3 (Classics student here, so that caught my attention!) Maybe try auditioning to be one of the murderers? They speak, but not very much, and if you're used for more threatening and combat roles, that might work for you :)

    • yea she always uses me for the combat/ threatening/ dying roles, i might jsut get that role as one of the murders tbh casue my voice is like insanely loud and carries its to tthe point i can't even talk on stage casue it echos in the last play (antigone) where i talk about death and stuff after the first opening night during the 2nd act they had to take my mic away casue it was far to loud

    • I think that the murderer would be good for you then :) You might also be able to play the messenger, though I think that's a little lengthier part than one of the murderers.

    • yea im feelong the murders the messenger isn't all tht bad from script looks like he has one part haha

Have an opinion?

  • Banquo would be good unless you think he has too many lines. Macduff would also be good especially as he has a brilliant fight scene with Macbeth at the end. If you want a smaller role then maybe Lennox. Hope this helps.

  • Macduff?
