CALLING ALL ACTORS

03 April

An exciting opportunity is available for all students in years 7, 8 and 9 to audition for A Midsummer Night’s dream as part of the Shakespeare schools festival. The Shakespeare schools festival is a nationwide event which allows us to rehearse and prepare a play which will be performed at Catmose College – as well as a local professional stage in November.

A Midsummer Night’s Dream is a comedy written by William Shakespeare. It portrays the events surrounding the marriage of Theseus, the Duke of Athens, to Hippolyta. These include the adventures of four young Athenian lovers and a group of six amateur actors (the mechanicals) who are controlled and manipulated by the fairies who inhabit the forest in which most of the play is set.

The play is one of Shakespeare’s most popular works for the stage and is widely performed across the world.

There are a total of 23 roles available and if you are successful in gaining a part, you will be needed for electives and after school rehearsals during term 6 of this academic year and term 1 of the next academic year.

All of the information about the play and how to audition can be found in: Student Shared > All Year Groups > Shakespeare Schools Festival 2017 > A Midsummer Night’s Dream > Auditions.

Auditions will take place during the first week back after Easter in term 5 – (week commencing 24th April 2017). These will take place during lunchtime and after school.

If you have any questions, please come and find Miss Hollick!
