2024: A MIDSUMMER NIGHT’S DREAM by William Shakespeare
Directed by Education Director Elana Kepner
The Teen Touring Company is a unique opportunity for actors aged 12 – 19
to create and tour a Shakespeare play to schools, senior centers and community
organizations. Students work with a professional director and dive into conservatory-style rehearsal and training in voice and text work, acting and movement. This year, we are producing A Midsummer Night’s Dream, a raucous comedy where the world is topsy-turvy and magic makes fools of everyone.
AUDITIONS: Tuesday, November 28 & Thursday, November 30, 5 – 7 pm. 514 Fourth Street San Rafael. Choose either day. Sign up here.
If you cannot attend either day and want to audition, email email@example.com
WHAT TO PREPARE: A 15 to 25 line Shakespeare monologue (verse preferred) or sonnet. Memorization is not required, but recommended. Also be prepared to read from the script (we’ll give you scenes) and to participate in a group warm-up. Plan to stay for the whole 2-hour session.
