We are still looking to fill three key roles!

Segismundo- late teens to early 30s the barbaric prince who is tested to see whether he would make a good king. Intimidating presence.

Basilio- Segismundo's father 40+. Wise and caring sage.

Clotaldo- 30+ Basilio's general. Loyal but conflicted when dealing with a matter of family vs king.

Life is a Dream by Pedro Calderón de la Barca. First published in 1635 during the Spanish Baroque period. Pedro Caderón de la Barca was born during the Spanish Golden Age of theatre, he developed it further, his work being regarded as the culmination of the Spanish Baroque theatre. He is regarded as one of Spain's foremost dramatists and one of the finest playwrights of world literature.

Life is a Dream tells the story of Segismundo, Prince of Poland, who has been imprisoned in a tower by his father, King Basilio, following a dire prophecy that the prince would bring disaster to the country and death to the King. Basilio briefly frees Segismundo, but when the prince goes on a rampage, the king imprisons him again, persuading him that it was all a dream
