MIDSUMMER NIGHTS DREAM By William Shakespeare MANDATORY GENERAL CAST MEETING MONDAY JANUARY 27TH AT 6:30 IN THE JANE TASCH PERFORMING ARTS THEATRE. Please bring your check book to take care of show fees. Meeting should only last about 90 minutes (or less). Things to know: Thank you to everyone for auditioning. These were tough choices which is an awesome blessing for our Shakespeare show. Casting was challenging. Conflicts played a role in the decision. Should additional conflicts come up that are not emergencies, be aware we have the right to recast your role and your show fees will not be returned.
There is no lead in this show. Each role has major significance to the story and is greatly important. Changes to the show (i.e. lines, character names, songs) are at the director’s discretion.
Everyone will sing at some point, not all solos. Songs can be sung or spoke-sung depending on the comfort level. In fact, some songs are to be sung badly. The Elves will appear in several scenes especially with Puck and Oberon. Everyone will dance in the show at some level. If you know someone wants to be in the show as a elf or fairy with a non-speaking part contact Brad.
To accept or decline your role you need to text or call the Director Brad Rondeau at 810-772-9325 and please include your name with your response.
