The Dogwood Summer Youth Theater will be holding auditions on Saturday, May 22 from 2:00 – 5:00 p.m. at the Dogwood Center for Performing Arts for their summer production of Shakespeare's “Comedy of Errors” for youth ages 12 years and up. Casting calls for a 14 male and female roles with room for a few extras.
The "Comedy of Errors" is one of William Shakespeare's early plays with a major part of the humor coming from slapstick and mistaken identity, in addition to puns and word play. As the story unfolds, the characters Antipholus and Dromio go to Ephesus to find them after both being separated from their twins in a shipwreck. The other set of twins live in Ephesus, and the new arrivals cause a series of incidents of mistaken identity. At the end, the twins find each other and their parents and resolve all of the problems caused earlier.
Young people attending the audition should enter using the canopy covered door at the Dogwood Center. Masks covering nose and mouth are required by all while inside the Dogwood Center.
If unable to attend the auditions on May 22, video auditions of a recorded reading of the audition monologue will be accepted through May 23 and emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
