Red Curtain Foundation for the Arts
About the project and the company
Red Curtain announces auditions for an original Shakespeare adaptation, “A MidWinter Night’s Dream,” written by Alex DeRoest and directed by Eric Bischoff. The production will run four weekends, Dec 1-23, 2024 at the Red Curtain Arts Center (9315 State Ave #J, Marysville, WA). Auditions will be held in-person Sept 26 and 27 from 6:00-9:00pm, with callbacks TBD.
This show offers roles for teens and kids. Young children may audition, but they must be competent readers to be consider for the cast.
In medieval Icenia, two young couples run away to a magical, wintery forest where they
encounter fairies, gnomes, a prankster and feuding winter royals. Magic, tricks, music,
mayhem and romance ensues, all ending with a celebration of the winter holiday.
