Director Steven Rice seeks a cast of performers ages 8-800 for Broken Leg Theater’s next show, “A Midsummer Nights Dream,” by William Shakespeare.

All auditions will take place at the Perkinson Center.

They will be held Monday 11/29 and Thursday 12/2 from 6:30-9, as well as Saturday 12/4 from 10am-2PM.

The first rehearsal is December 6th at 6:30 at the Perkinson Center (this will be an all call rehearsal and will include a mandatory cast and parents/guardian meeting), and the following rehearsals will take place Monday and Thursday evenings from 6:30pm-9pm, as well as Saturday mornings from 10am-2pm.

More details will be available at auditions.

The show will run for two weekends in February. The dates are Friday 2/11 at 7, Saturday 2/12 at 7, Sunday 2/13 at 3, Friday 2/18 at 7, Saturday 2/19 at 7, and Sunday 2/20 at 3.

All roles are open.

We are especially looking for teenage actors to play some of the lead roles.

In addition to the roles listed below, we also are looking for a large ensemble to play a variety of characters, including: Fairies, Amazons, and Servants. All fairies will have a choreographed dance number, with one fairy singing a song. The Amazons and Servants will have a choreographed partner dance.

Although a memorized and prepared monologue is encouraged, it is not required.

Sides from the script will be available to all auditioning performers. Middle School age auditionees are encouraged to prepare an acapella song of their choice to audition with, if they are interested in the one singing fairy role.

For those interested in lead and supporting speaking roles, the breakdown can be found on the following link: https://docs.google.com/…/1MlC4zpHKLnhh4q4Gtq3zoWs…/edit

Unless listed as a specific gender, all roles are open to all genders.

All roles are volunteer, and not paid.

We are also filling spots for crew. Crew members should be available for the entire run of the show, tech week, and Saturday mornings/afternoons for set construction.
