A Midsummer Night’s Dream
Our production of “ A Midsummer Night’s Dream” requires people with an understanding of the language of Shakespeare, comedic timing, and a desire to have fun and create a great show.
Auditions will be held on August 19 between 7:30 and 9:00 PM at the Bellevue Library, Room 6. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org your resume and headshot to schedule an audition time.
