men & women ages 16 to 160

All auditions will take place at The Ice House
Bring your whole family to the try-outs because the directors are looking to cast adult men and women from high-school age through gramp’s and granny’s age. No experience necessary. Musicians are also needed, so bring your guitar or other instrument. The younger folks will not audition until the end of June, but are welcome to watch family members try out. Actors need only choose one of the audition nights for a low-pressure, fun experience.
“Being involved in this fresh and breezy Shakespeare play promises to be perfect for summer fun,” says co-director Tom Brooks. “This multi-generational play is a delightful cocktail of romance, deception and a terrific battle of the sexes.”
“There are plenty of ways to be involved,” says scenic designer and co-director Beth Brooks. “We also need people with an interest in set painting, prop making or set construction.”
The Brooks duo has directed many productions for the Morgan Arts Council, including LITTLE SHOP OF HORRORS, THE SECRET GARDEN and ROMEO & JULIET.
