Audition Description

William Shakespeare's enchanting comedy of love and errors, A Midsummer Night's Dream, marked the birth of The Company Theatre. Directed by Company founders Zoe Bradford and Jordie Saucerman in 1979, magic was achieved in a church basement with a group of eager young actors and sets made from painted refrigerator boxes. In celebration of our 40th year, Shakespeare's most beloved work returns to the stage in a glorious and elaborate version that will capture the hearts of all who love fantasy and enjoy Shakespeare. A grand and eclectic cast, divine choreography, enchanting sets, gorgeous costumes, and the captivating Mendelssohn score will all come together in this special revival. The lovers, the actors, the fairies, the royals, and the mischievous satyr Puck collide in a world in which the human and divine are pitted against one another, resulting in a hilarious and chaotic frenzy. This abridged version will delight the entire family.
