Auditions Announced for A MIDSUMMER NIGHT’S DREAM at Loveland Stage Company

LSC_logoLSC Radio is holding open auditions for our next production of A MIDSUMMER NIGHT’S DREAM directed by Jacqlyn Schott.

Please submit a video audition containing two monologues from contrasting characters from the show. Eg: If you are interested in playing one of the Lovers, you will read said character’s monologue as well as a monologue for one of the Fairies, one of the Athenians, or for the Mechanicals.

Please do not feel restricted by gender or by how the roles have been previously, “traditionally” cast. This production welcomes diversity in all forms and encourages all who want to experience Shakespeare and a wonderful show in a fun format to audition. The monologues for your audition can be found via Google Drive (https://bit.ly/2DJe0vL).

The Lovers:

  • Hermia
  • Lysander
  • Helena
  • Demetrius

The Athenians:

  • Hippolyta
  • Theseus
  • Egeus
  • Philostrate

The Fairies:

  • Titania
  • Oberon
  • Puck/Robin Goodfellow
  • Cobweb
  • Mote
  • Mustardseed
  • Peaseblossom

The Mechanicals:

  • Nick Bottom
  • Peter Quince
  • Francis Flute
  • Tom Snout
  • Snug
  • Robin Starveling

These monologues do not need to be memorized—neither will lines for the show itself—but you should be familiar with the material. Each actor will be portraying two or more parts, so the ability to portray multiple, distinct characters is a must. Please DO NOT use an English accent for your audition, unless that is your natural accent.

Video submissions (or link to your video) must be emailed to the director (jacqlynschott@gmail.com) no later than Aug 13th, 2020. Please use the subject “LSC Radio- Midsummer audition” and include the following: which role(s) you are interested in, if you would accept any role, which role (if any) you would not accept, and all known conflicts from 8/13/20 until 9/21/20. Theatrical resumes are welcome but not necessary.

Rehearsals will consist of video chat and rehearsals at Loveland Stage Company. Days and times TBD based upon cast and crew availability. This will be a recorded event that will be posted on Loveland Stage Company’s website and social media platforms. Please go to www.lovelandstagecompany.org for our previous production to get a feel how this will work out.

Any questions, please contact the director at jacqlynschott@gmail.com.

LSC Radio is a subsidiary of Loveland Stage Company. If cast, you must become a member of the company in order to perform; this includes a $15 membership fee. We are a volunteer, community theater organization serving the greater Cincinnati area, located in downtown Loveland, Ohio.
