UAH Theatre will hold open auditions for William Shakespeare's A MIDSUMMER NIGHT'S DREAM on Monday, January 12 and Tuesday, January 13 at 6:00 PM in Chan Auditorium (Business Administration Building - UAH Campus). Everyone is welcome!
This production will be performed from March 11-22 in Chan Auditorium, and it will be directed by Dr. Chad Thomas.
Please prepare the monologue below or a monologue of your choosing from the show. It does not need to be memorized, but you should be familiar enough to add some vocal texture and characterization.
If we shadows have offended,
Think but this and all is mended,
That you have but slumber'd here
While these visions did appear.
And this weak and idle theme,
No more yielding but a dream,
Gentles, do not reprehend:
If you pardon, we will mend.
And, as I am an honest Puck,
If we have unearnéd luck
Now to 'scape the serpent's tongue,
We will make amends ere long;
Else the Puck a liar call:
So, good night unto you all.
Give me your hands, if we be friends,
And Robin shall restore amends. [Exit.]
Please let us know if you have any questions! We hope to see you there.
A MIDSUMMER NIGHT'S DREAM
by William Shakespeare
An enchanted forest in a mythical Athens sets the stage for the adventures of four star-crossed lovers, a group of amateur actors, a duke and duchess, a handsome fairy king, a misguided parent, a weaver who's transformed into a half-donkey, wood sprites, and last but not least, Puck the trickster elf who knows falling in love can make fools of us all.
March 11 – 14 and 18 – 21 at 7:30pm
