Seeking actors looking for a challenge.
All races, genders, ages, and identities are encouraged to audition - especially for parts they would not ‘normally’ be considered for.
Nick Bottom will be played by a woman.
Oberon will be played by multiple actors simultaneously.
Auditions will consist of (1) prepared Shakespearean (or other suitable Renaissance Drama) monologue. THESE DO NOT NEED TO BE MEMORIZED. But it will be far more impressive if they are memorized.
If you wish to audition for a specific role, prepare a second monologue from A Midsummer Night’s Dream of that role. If you want to be Puck, prepare a Puck monologue. If you want to be Titania, prepare a Titania monologue, etc.
The final portion of the audition will consist of movement and tomfoolery.
