A Midsummer Night's Dream A play in One Act adapted by Lindsay Price from the original by William Shakespeare Directed by Noell Krughoff Assistant director, Brayton Lipperd Produced by Cora Parker July 15-16, 2017 July 21 - 23, 2017 Auditions Monday & Tuesday May 22 & 23 at 6:00 p.m. Auditions held at SCP OFFSTAGE: 1416 S. Miller Ave. Shelbyville, Indiana
Casting needs: 13 M & 8 F actors ages 12 to 20. and several younger actors ages 6 to 12 with non- speaking roles. We are casting actors 20 years of age and younger for all parts. Our hope is that talent from all of Shelby County’s five high school drama departments will participate, along with younger actors and others from the community. This play will be submitted to the Encore Association as a Rising Star production, which awards best Rising Star male and female actors from member organizations each season. This fun and fast-paced Shakespearean comedy has it all: royalty, fairies, elves, young lovers, bumbling thespians, and a few wild animals thrown in for good measure. Mix these together in a forest with magic potions, mistaken identity, jealousy and intrigue. Wrap it up with a very funny play-within-a-play rendition of Pyramus and Thisbe and this midsummer night will be one to remember. The full-length Shakespeare play has been adapted to run about an hour.
