Call for auditions for upcoming play "A Midsummer Night's Dream"
May 20, 2010
The curtain will rise once again on the University of Maine at Fort Kent's Summer Theatre Program with the production of the comedy classic A Midsummer Night's Dream, by William Shakespeare.
The play, which will be directed by Corey Gagne, will be performed from Thursday, July 29 through Sunday, August 1.
Audition dates are scheduled for Wednesday, June 16 and Thursday, June 17 from 7 to 9 p.m. in Fox Auditorium at UMFK, or by appointment.
Auditions are open to anyone in the community who is interested; no experience is necessary, only a desire to try. Male and female performers of all ages, technicians, and production staff are needed.
A Midsummer Night’s Dream tells the story of four lovers who each want someone whom they cannot have. The play also tells the stories of two betrothed rulers from different worlds looking forward to their honeymoon; a group of clumsy actors trying to put on a "tragic" play for their Duke's upcoming wedding; and the marital quarrels of two omnipotent beings, whose conflicts wreak havoc on both the weather and those around them. All of this craziness is tied together by a mischievous imp. Most of the play takes place on one crazy night in the woods.
“There are plenty of wonderful roles and production positions available. Come join us, and have a fun time doing some great community theatre!” said Aaron Bernstein, producer.
Anyone interested in being part of the play, please contact Berstein by phone at (207) 834-7893, by e-mail at: firstname.lastname@example.org or on the UMFK Summer Theater Facebook page.
