Call for auditions for upcoming play "The Tempest"
May 27, 2011
The curtain will rise once again on the University of Maine at Fort Kent's Summer Theatre Program with the production of The Tempest, by William Shakespeare.
The play, under the direction of Corey Gagne, will be performed from Thursday, July 28 through Sunday, July 31.
Audition dates are scheduled for Wednesday, June 15 and Thursday, June 16 from 7 to 9 p.m. in Fox Auditorium at UMFK, or by appointment.
The Tempest was Shakepeare’s final play, and is considered one of his greatest works.
Auditions are open to anyone in the community who is interested; no experience is necessary, only a desire to try. Male and female actors, singers, and dancers, technicians, and production staff of all ages are encouraged to try out or volunteer.
“The Tempest is a spectacular show, full of humor, magic, and intrigue. There are plenty of wonderful roles and production positions available, and this year’s cast will include a professional mentor actress from Acorn Shakespeare Company. Come work with us, and have a memorable summer doing some community theatre!” said Aaron Bernstein, producer.
Anyone interested in being a part of the production should contact Bernstein by phone at (207) 834-7893, by e-mail at: firstname.lastname@example.org on the UMFK Summer Theater FACEBOOK page.
