There are some months to go till auditions, but I intend to start preparing shortly, getting a script together, along with notes, character sheets, etc.. I've even bought the annotated script from The Oxford Shakespeare series in which 50% of each page is devoted to annotations and notes.
Edited to add:
- Do I use XML, HTML or ODF for the script?
- Do I put preparation notes in a wiki, or just use text files on the MacBook?
- Do I decline the offer just so I don't have to contact auditionees that didn't get a part (and struggle to fill some roles)?
