Auditions Are April 26,27 For Midsummer Night’s Dream

Friday, April 18, 2014

Auditions for the Shakespeare Chattanooga’s production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream will be held Saturday and Sunday, April 26 and 27, at the Ripple Theater in Brainerd. This show will officially reopen the Ripple space, dark for nearly four years, and kick off the partnership between Shakespeare Chattanooga and Ripple Productions.

Performances will be June 20-22 and 27-29 and the intensive rehearsal period will be mid-May through opening. Some roles have been cast; all other roles are open. As is the tradition of Shakespeare Chattanooga, casting is color-blind and some roles are open for gender-bending. 

The modern-dress production will be directed by Shakespeare Chattanooga Producing Director Janis Hashe.

Actors are requested to bring headshot and resume if they have them, but they are not required, and no experience of acting Shakespeare is necessary. 

General auditions will be Saturday, April 26, from 2:30-5:30 p.m. and callbacks and special arrangement auditions will be Sunday, April 27, from 3:30-5:30 p.m. at Ripple Theater, 3264 Brainerd Road.
