Audition Information

AUDITION ANNOUNCEMENT

The Auburn Players announce auditions for one of William Shakespeare’s most popular comedies, “A Midsummer Night’s Dream.”

The play portrays the adventures of four young lovers and a group of amateur actors, their interactions with woodland fairies and a duke and duchess. Taking place in a mythical Athens and an enchanted forest, there is a handsome fairy king, a misguided parent, star-crossed lovers, a weaver who’s transformed into a half-donkey, wood sprites and elves.
