A MIDSUMMER NIGHT’S DREAM is one of the most fun and funny plays ever written, featuring mischievous magical spirits, befuddled young lovers, and a good-hearted amateur acting troupe.

The Teen Touring Company is a unique opportunity for teenagers (age 13+) to create and tour a 1-hour+ version of a Shakespeare play. Students work with a professional director, and then perform on tour at schools and senior centers for three weeks each Spring.

The Teen Touring Company will perform at 12 to 15 venues. Students will be expected to miss three days of school for in-schools performances; a complete performance schedule will be available at the auditions.

To sign up to audition, contact the Education Director at 415-499-4487 or education@marinshakespeare.org. You may also just show up on the day of auditions, but we prefer to know you are coming in advance. For the audition, please prepare to perform a Shakespearean monologue of 1 to 2 minutes, from any play. We prefer that you memorize the monologue, but it is acceptable to read it if you prefer. You will be participating in warm-up exercises and other group acting activities. You will also be given scenes from the play to read; you will have time to look over any scenes before you are asked to read. We strongly encourage all actors to plan to attend both days of auditions. If you cannot attend both days, or cannot attend auditions, please let us know. Typically, everyone who auditions is cast.

Tuition: $600

You may pay tuition before, at, or after Auditions. Need-based scholarships are available for all Marin Shakespeare Company classes; please call if you have any questions.
