Casting for A Midsummer Night’s Dream

Expires: May 15, 2022

About the Project

Emerald Theatre is located in South King County, serving Maple Valley/Black Diamond/Covington and surrounding communities.  We have been entertaining audiences for the past 12 years with cabarets, plays, and youth theatre performances.

Emerald Theatre is presenting a one-hour performance of Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream in two outdoor spaces this summer:  Lake Wilderness Arboretum and Soos Creek Botanical Gardens.  Both beautiful gardens set the perfect backdrop to this tale of love in a magical forest at midsummer that will appeal to young and old alike.  A perfect family show for theatre lovers of all kinds.

Experienced, emerging actors 18+ all encouraged to audition. We celebrate people of every gender, sexual orientation, race, ethnicity, and ability. We strive, always, to address and maintain a space that works towards anti-racism and DEI (diversity, equity and inclusion)

Although we are keeping auditions to a minimum (2 days a week most weeks) to cut down on drive time and gas usage, there may be additional rehearsals added if absolutely necessary.  Rehearsals June 27, 28, 30 (Table Work Zoom), July 5-July 28, August 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 (Dress/Tech Rehearsals), 6:30-8:30.  Since parts are doubled, all actors will be called to all rehearsals.
