RED BANK: SEEKING YOUNG SHAKESPEAREANS

From press materials furnished by Two River Theater Company

For the next production in a series presented under the title A Little Shakespeare,Two River Theater Company is seeking students in grades 9 through 12 — not just actors, but stage managers, designers and crew — for a staging of Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream that’s scheduled for next spring.

The TRTC team is also seeking “a few actors in grades 6-8” for roles in the production of the Bard’s kinetic comedy of forest fairies, passionate young nobles and somewhat self-deluded amateur actors — a funny and fantastic favorite that was previously seen at Two River in a gag-infused “grownup” version several seasons back. Auditions will take place at the theater during the week that begins on Sunday, January 4, and rehearsals will begin in late January.

Performances of A Midsummer Night’s Dream will be presented inside TRTC’s “black box” Marion Huber Theater space, beginning April 23 and running through May 1, 2015. Additional details on becoming part of the production can be found here.
