The Lone Star College-North Harris Division of Fine Arts will host an audition for it’s spring theatre production, “A Midsummer Night’s Dream,” on December 8 from 5 to 8 p.m. The audition is open to actors from throughout the community, and not just students at Lone Star College-North Harris. This play is one of William Shakespeare's most popular works for the stage and is widely performed across the world.
“A Midsummer Night’s Dream,” is a comedy believed to have been written between 1590 and 1597. The play portrays the events surrounding the marriage of the Duke of Athens, Theseus, and Hippolyta. These include the adventures of four young Athenian lovers and a group of six amateur actors (the mechanicals), who are controlled and manipulated by the fairies who inhabit the forest in which most of the play is set.
Twenty actors are needed for the cast. To audition, actors must prepare one monologue from a Shakespearean play or sonnet. To schedule an audition, call 281.765.7963 or email Director Cash Carpenter at firstname.lastname@example.org . Students who are part of the Lone Star College system will also receive college credit if cast.
Rehearsals are tentatively scheduled to begin on Jan. 19, 2016. The performance is scheduled for February 24 through 28, 2016.
