Which character should I audition for in "The Tempest"?
I am a freshman at my college, and we are about to hold auditions for The Tempest. I'm not sure which character to shoot for (probably not a major role.. #freshie). (I am a relatively small female.) Which character is your favorite? Any tips/ advice?

More to the point, which character would YOU like to play?
Or haven't you read it yet?

Well, hopefully they will be going in for diverse casting because there is only one female character - (unless they decide Ariel's female) with three goddesses who come on at the end with a few lines accompanied by nymphs who dance...
Read the play and decide which of the male characters could be played by a woman - I've seen a female Prospero who was very effectives (but that is, of course the lead), one of the two drunks could easily be female, Gonzalo, the 'honest old Councillor' could be a motherly woman, Antonio, Prospero's treacherous brother could be Antonia, which would give an interesting slant to her relationship with Sebastian...if you can sing, and are a good physical actor Ariel would be a possibility ...just have a go...
