Auditions

 

A Midsummer Night's Dream
Sunday 19h November 10.30 am to 3.00 pm.
Shakespeare's wonderful comedy will close our season for the summer in June 2018.

As this will be a long day, the director, Chris Carpenter (chrissiecarpenter@gmail.com tel:01926856282) would appreciate expressions of interest in advance of the audition, along with details of timings which suit you best and parts in which you are interested This is to try to avoid keeping you hanging around at the audition unnecessarily. You are most welcome to work on speeches from the play in advance and perform them at the audition but this is not essential.
There will be a couple of Sunday Workshops before the play goes into full rehearsal, doubling of parts* as deemed desirable, or necessary, and there will be opportunities for some cross sex casting. The director's aim is to be as flexible and all-inclusive as possible in casting.

Theseus* - Duke of Athens
Hippolyta* - Queen of the Amazons
Egeus - Father to Hermia
The Lovers: Lysander, Hermia, Demetrius, Helena (The lovers will need to be physically fit!)
