A Midsummer Night’s Dream – AUDITION NOTICE

by William Shakespeare

Directed by Anne Manchester

The Butterfly Creek Theatre Troupe will be auditioning for its outdoor summer production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream on Sunday, November 14, from 1-5pm.

The play, directed by Anne Manchester, will be performed in the Muritai School Yard, Eastbourne, from February 24-26 and March 3-5.

Although this will be a romantic, magical production, it will also explore the play’s eroticism and darker tones of predatory sexuality. In much of Shakespeare, there is often a thin line between the worlds of fairies and that of witches.

Early read-throughs/explorations of the script will be held on November 28 and December 12, with rehearsals beginning in earnest on January 16, continuing Tuesday and Thursday evenings and Sunday afternoons.

A number of actors will be expected to play dual roles including Theseus/Oberon and Hipployta/Titania, with four of the mechanicals/clowns also playing fairies.

For a copy of the script and to book an audition spot, email Anne Manchester on aemanch@gmail.com. Please prepare a speech from the character you wish to audition for, though you may be asked to read for another part as well.
