Hermia and Lysander are in love, but her father wants her to marry Demetrius, who used to be in love with Helena. Hermia and Lysander run away, Demetrius and Helena follow. Oberon, king of the fairies, takes time out from his quarrel with Titania to interfere with the young lovers’ fate, which briefly makes things worse rather than better. In the meantime, Peter Quince and his company of actors are rehearsing a play to perform at the wedding of Theseus and Hippolyta. A MIDSUMMER NIGHT’S DREAM is Shakespeare’s classic comedy of love: stately love, defiant love, misdirected and corrected love, tragical-comical-historical-pastoral love, at a duke’s court and in a magical forest.

Prepare: A monologue from Shakespeare (about 20 lines), does not need to be memorized. Be prepared for cold readings from the script. Casting will most likely take place the night of auditions or via email/phone the following day.
