Ouachita Little Theatre, in conjunction with the UA Rich Mountain drama department, is announcing auditions for the winter production of “A Midsummer’s Night Dream.” This classic Shakespearean comedy will be directed by Robby and Gini Burt. This is not the first time UARM and OLT have joined forces to bring enriching entertainment to Polk County. The result is certain to be a well-produced special event for our community. At this printing, the exact dates for performances are not chosen, but will most likely occur over two weekends in late February.
Auditions for “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” will be held at the UA Rich Mountain Lecture Hall on two dates: Wednesday, November 13 from 5:00 to 7:00 PM and Thursday November 14 from 6:00 to 8:00 PM. There will be an additional audition at OLT on Friday, November 15 from 5:00 to 7:00 PM.
The directors are seeking a large number of cast members from all age groups from the community at large as well as the college.
