Auditions Planned for A Midsummer Night's Dream

Auditions will be held September 9-10 for the Southwestern Oklahoma State University production of William Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream that will be staged later this semester on the Weatherford campus.

The cold-reading auditions are open to all SWOSU students, regardless of major, and will be held at 7 p.m. each evening in the SWOSU Hilltop Theatre.

The production is under the guidance of faculty members Steve P. Strickler as director and Debra P. Holmes as technical director/designer.  A Midsummer Night’s Dream is one of Shakespeare’s most popular romantic comedies, and there are approximately 20 roles in the script. 

Strickler and Holmes have chosen to place the production in a Vaudeville setting – which will open up many opportunities for the designers and actors.

Students interested in other production areas can contact the theatre faculty in Campbell Building 126 or attend the auditions. 

Production dates are set for November 5-8 by the SWOSU Department of Art, Communication & Theatre.
