CVLT Shields Players seeks 15-18 actors, ages 16-19 for a two week workshop production of William Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream. Cast members will meet July 17 -21 from 9:00am to 3:00pm, and July 24-28 from 9:00am to 4:00pm. Additional evening technical rehearsals will be called during the second week of the workshop. Performances in Riverside Park will be held on July 28, 29, and August 11 at 7:00pm.

All cast members must audition on either June 18 from 2:00-4:00 or June 19 from 5:00-7:00. Auditioners must come prepared to perform a Shakespearean monologue of 14-20 lines; lines need not be memorized. Please plan to stay for the entire audition time, as actors will be asked to do some improvisation and readings from Midsummer.
