Call for Actors/Dancers!
The Main Street Players is producing Shakespeare’s “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” this summer and we are looking for dancers and actors! This show consists of three distinct plotlines and will be performed in three distinct styles. The star-crossed lovers will be played as a straightforward, classical play. The fairy storyline will be danced, on the order of a ballet, but also incorporating other dance styles. There is also a “play within a play,” which will be commedia del’arte style (slapstick comedy).
Rehearsals will start soon but we are still looking to fill more parts!! If interested email us at email@example.com. Parts are available for dancers and actors of all ages:
- Fairies and woodland creatures: girls and boys, grade school and middle school; mostly dancing (no dance experience required – we will teach you!)
- Fairy King and Queen: older teen/adult; both dance and speaking parts
- Mechanicals/ Actors for the ‘play within a play': adults; spoken parts – slapstick comedy
- Nobles: the Duke of Athens, his Amazon bride, his henchman, and Hermia’s father – adults; spoken parts
