"A Midsummer Night's Dream"


Thank you to all 25 people who auditioned. "A Midsummer Night's Dream" will be a beautifully stunning show. Everyone will get lots of stage time, costumes will be gorgeous, there will be lots of glitter and the set will be a moonlit paradise. We are VERY excited to get started. Please read the cast list thoroughly, because some people have more than one part. Our first read through will be Thursday, December 18th from 5-8pm. Everyone will get their scripts and we will go over the show, themes, costumes ideas, cast fun-tivities and the set. As most of you already know, at the Harrington Arts Academy we pride ourselves in giving actors as MANY opportunities to be on stage, and thrive, as possible. We like to give new people opportunities for bigger parts, trying to share the wealth and growth. You all did very well with the difficult task of learning Shakespeare. I have no doubts "A Midsummer Night's Dream" will be a true masterpiece.

Please accept or decline your role by emailing: HAABrittany@gmail.com by Monday, December 15th at 7pm. If I do not hear from you by then, I will give your part to the next person in line, since some people did not make the cast. I promise you won't regret being a part of this production. It's going to be tons of fun, and everyone will learn a great deal. If you would like feedback on your audition, I would be happy to give you some tips and suggestions on ways to improve.

Your production fee of $100 is due the day of our read through this Thursday. We have to do this to secure your role. Because you get your scripts Thursday and have to learn your lines by our first rehearsal in January, we can't afford people to drop with such little time to rehearse. We will have costumes ready before our first rehearsal as well, so we can take publicity shots, get our posters ready and out in the community. This $100 production fee goes towards costumes, set, props, make-up, and utilities.

I plan on organizing a time for all of us to watch the movie version of "A Midsummer Night's Dream" together. We can discuss this at our meeting on Thursday.

We are really looking forward to growing and laughing together, while we embark on this Shakespearean journey together. This show is known for its hilarious play within a play and crazy chaos love stories. Let's make the stage shine. See you Thursday!
