A Midsummer Night's Dream
By William Shakesepeare

Directed & Choreographed by Darcy Hogan
Musical direction by Milo Graamans

Auditions Saturday, May 5th at 2pm at the
Newport Performing Arts Center.

Callbacks (by invitation only) Sunday, May 6th at 2pm.

As a group of lovers escape into a forest of mischief and magic, the creatures of the night arise. What follows is a thrilling evening of enchantment, mayhem, and merriment... just in time for Halloween. Hogan infuses Shakespeare's timeless words with movement and music, for a wild and whimsical adventure you won't soon forget.


The director is looking for actors, vocalists, and dancers to help bring this spectacular re-imagining to life. Some roles require only acting, singing, or dancing, while others require all three or a combination thereof. (Note: You do not have to be well-versed in the works of Shakespeare to have a place in this production... but a love of 80's music will serve you well!)

Rehearsals begin this summer. Production runs October 12-28, 2018 in the Alice Silverman Theater. Fridays and Saturdays at 7:00pm, Sundays at 2pm. Note: one additional performance on Thursday, October 25th at 7:00pm.

More detailed audition information, including audition sides, will be post on our website soon, at www.OctopusOnStage.com. For now, mark your calendars and plan to join us on May 5 for what is sure to be a very fun audition process!
