The Story to live together

The G.A.D. Renato Simoni’s theatre company of Verona is looking for new actors for the next edition of the annual Shakespearean Festival of Verona. Cecilia is the assistant director of the company and this year she had the idea to carry out the casting by testing passionates about international theater, making them act on the natural stage of the most beautiful historical places in Verona and concluding at the Roman Theater. If you love Shakespeare’s theater, the beauty of Verona will help you immerse yourself in his art.
It will be more exciting than you think, so, go to the Verona Arena where Cecilia is waiting for you with the script to help you overcome the casting, even if only for a small part.

Cecilia, Experiential Tourism Operator

Hi, I’m Cecilia, theater expert and amateur actress. With me you will be able to try your hand at vocalization tests and theatrical techniques on the big natural stage of Verona, home of the well-known Shakespearean “Romeo and Juliet” and location for the important theatrical Festival dedicated to the great English playwright.
