  1. This is the exact kind of film for me! I love to act, I have little experience but not because of lack of skill. I am very ambitious, I do not give up, period, and this something I take very seriously. Evem cnsideration would be greatly appreciated.

  2. To whom it may concern:
    I am 14 years old. I have dirty blonde hair. I have blue eyes. I am 5’1″. I have been involved in many theater shows and serious musical and plays. I am a very devotional anf confident person. I will be great for this play, because when i try i give it my all and i learn very quickly.

  3. Hi! My name is Jessica, i am 18, im 5’11”, with brown hair, brown eyes, and I am white. I have acted all throughout high school, in five productions, as well as working set and tech for many of others. I can sing and dance (choreographed, anyway) and pride myself on my voice. I don’t have much professional experience, but am on my way to building that up! I would love to be considered for the 2015 auditions.

  4. Hello!

    When I when to school for my desire of acting, it was in my Shakespeare class that I was told I had my breakthrough. It seems as though I have a connection with the texts, I even share William’s birthday and I find myself ad-libbing iambic pentameter on a quite frequent occasion. Theatre is the bridge for the soul between an audience and performer, it is in the theatre that one learns to connect with the moment as well as the audience’s emotions.

    My name is Joshua holt, I’m 21 years old. I would love to be a part of this production, I’ll bring along with me my best qualities: good times, charm, responsibility, dedication, determination, respect, humility and loyalty.

    I’m 16 and an aspiring actress/singer. I have been in a few shows, modeled a bit and I’m also SUPER tall (6′)!! I am willing to work on any type of scene and do not have a preference of what character I would play since I’ve played both young and old, male and female. My idol has always been Johnny Deep so I’m a little down with the crazy! I am great at memorizing lines and I have a great personality.
    Please contact me, you won’t be disappointed.

  33. What an awesome opportunity! I used to read a condensed version of MSND every night before going to bed, but I guess that’s what you’re akin to people who are obsessed with Shakespeare. Even though I didn’t understand the humor of the story when I was little, and always fell for the shallow drama of the Athenian lovers, I look back at it and appreciate the timelessness and elusive honesty of Shakespeare. It would be magical to participate in such a dynamic play. Love this play! Kind of takes the punch out of some of his more sullen work.

If you would like to see me email me for more details. Thank you. Good Luck with the Auditions.

  36. To me this would mean the world for me to be able to be in another play. My name is A’lexus and I plan on making the cut for your play because of my extended background/experience. Acting means the world to me and I am willing to do anything to prove that to you that I am worthy to be in your play. I know that I am young but throughout my life I have been working hard to prove to everybody that I can and will be successful. I live in Dallas where there are a lot of opportunities to fufill my destiny but to me I think that by auditioning for this particular play my success can start off NOW.. thank you for reading..
