Audition Information


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.

All ages! Everyone welcome! No need to fear Shakespeare– this will be fun!!!
