Auditions ~ A Midsummer Night's Dream

Auditions Announced:

A Midsummer Night's Dream by William Shakespeare
Adapted and directed by Jonathan Gonzalez

The classic tale of love, madness, magic, and transformation comes to the Pearl! For this production, we will focus on a psuedo-victorian world that encounters a rip in space time where our fateful lovers are transported to a groovy swinging magic forest! Actors are encouraged to make large choices, and while no Shakespeare experience is required, we will be looking to more seasoned actors in the larger roles. No accents please. Please be familiar with the script before auditioning. All auditioners will be assigned a side to read by the director, but will also get an opportunity to pick one character they wish to read for. (Possibly more, time permitting.) Since this is Shakespeare, actors will be expected to do work outside of rehearsal on character, research, scansion, etc. With that in mind, please read the play beforehand, familiarize yourself with the characters before auditioning.

(Although they left out one: EGEUS-Angry, crotchety stuck up father to Hermia. He wants her to marry Demetrius and begs the Duke to carry out a sentence of death on her if she doesent.)
