A MIDSUMMER NIGHT’S DREAM
By William Shakespeare
AUDITIONS FOR THIS PRODUCTION HAVE BEEN POSTPONED, DATE TBD.
Directed by Elisabeth Campbell
One of the world’s most famous love stories, perhaps even the one of the first romantic comedies, William Shakespeare makes his Levoy Theatre debut with A Midsummer Night’s Dream. When a feuding fairy King and Queen of the forest cross paths with four runaway lovers and a troupe of actors trying to rehearse a play, their disputes grows. The magical royal couple meddle with mortal lives leading to love triangles, mistaken identities and transformations…anything can happen in a magical moonlit forest…
Please prepare a one-minute classical monologue in the style of the show. Please do NOT perform a monologue from A Midsummer Night’s Dream.
