Open audition for SHAKESPEARE IN HOLLYWOOD, by Ken Ludwig, in which … Shakespeare’s famed characters, Oberon and Puck, find themselves by mistake on the set of the real 1934 production of Max Reinhardt’s ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream’ and join the cast as … themselves! Shakespeare’s characters, movie moguls, starlets, gossip columnists, and assorted hangers-on add up to a wacky and raucous fun-filled romp. Directed by Yaga Brady. TWO SESSIONS: Tue. Feb. 14th & Wed.
