Commissioned by the Public Theatre’s Public Works project, and featuring an original folk-pop score by virtuoso Vermonter Shaina Taub, this adaptation of As You Like It is a raucous and inclusive celebration of life and love and was named one of The New York Times‘ best shows of 2017.
Auditions for this show will be held on Sunday, March 10, from 11-2pm, with callbacks on Sunday, March 17 from 1-3pm. Rehearsals for this production will begin on July 15, 2019, and culminate with 10 performances August 2-10. Tuition for this program is $550 and financial aid is available.
William Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream was the very first production NEYT presented 20 years ago, and NEYT alum Ben Stockman returns as director of this sparkling anniversary production. As a member of that very first cast and now NYC director in his own right, Ben brings it full circle to helm a Summer Shakespeare to remember.
Auditions for this production will be held on Sunday, March 10, from 3-5pm.
Rehearsals for this production will begin June 24, ending with 4 performances, July 12-15. Tuition for this program is $500 and financial aid is available.
All actors ages 13-19 are welcome to join the fun. There are great parts for Shakespeare vets as well as actors who are relatively new to the language. Casting will be flexible and inclusive to all genders, races, and orientations.
