Bring a list of any conflicts to the rehearsal schedule with you.
Rehearsals will be Mon - Thurs nights, most weeks, with characters in those scenes needed; starting at 6:30 (if will work out for actors that have been cast), and go to 8:30 or 9:00. Two weeks prior to show dates may be a little longer.
This is a non-equity community theater production. TECH week is mandatory!

The Show Must Go On!
Gary Shakespeare Company will produce A Midsummer Night’s Dream directed by Stephanie Naumoff in Summer 2020!
The production will begin rehearsals on May 18. Early rehearsals will happen via video conference transitioning to in-person if/when possible. Rehearsals will be M-Th evenings, 6-9 pm. The rehearsal schedule is somewhat flexible to the availability of the actors.
Gary Shakespeare Company is hopeful that outdoor performances for which audience members may maintain social distancing may be possible by August. We have venues lined up for performances on Fri, Sat, and Suns beginning July 31 through August 16.
GSC is also excited about online performances. As Shakespeare is royalty-free, we are in a unique position to distribute our performances as live streams or videos. We are considering all options for platforms and streaming services.
One possibility is serializing the performance (ie. live-streaming a segment of the show each week rather than the full show at once). Live streams could be recorded, edited, and restreamed later as well.
We are excited to experiment with the possibilities for costumes, props, and virtual backgrounds.
We are confident that Midsummer will have a performance run, even if social distancing prevents live performances.
Home internet access and a device capable of video conferencing in order to participate.
Please fill out the audition questionnaire linked to this announcement.
Please record yourself performing a Shakespearean monologue. Any piece of your choice is acceptable. We have attached several options.
Please email your video to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Actors who submit video auditions will be contacted to arrange for video conference auditions.
Please email questions to email@example.com
