The Dogwood Summer Youth Theater will present the classic story, A Midsummer Night’s Dream! Auditions will be held at the Dogwood Center Black Box. Kids ages 12 and up are invited to come and try out on either Saturday, May 13 from 1:00 - 2:30 p.m. or Monday, May 15 from 5:30 p.m. - 7:00 p.m.
William Shakespeare’s most popular comedy, A Midsummer Night’s Dream, portrays the adventures of four young lovers and a group of amateur actors, their interactions with woodland fairies and a duke and duchess. Taking place in a mythical Athens and an enchanted forest, there is a handsome fairy king, a misguided parent, star-crossed lovers, a weaver who’s transformed into a half-donkey, wood sprites and elves. This work is widely performed around the world, and no wonder - it’s about the world’s most popular pastime, falling in love. But as Puck knows, falling in love can make fools of us all.
Casting calls for at least 12 males and 8 females with many, many extra roles for fairies and goblins.
The Dogwood Summer Youth Theater will be directed again this summer by Chelsea Webb. The performance dates for A Midsummer Night’s Dream are July 28 and 29.
