The Most Lamentable Comedy, and the Most Cruel Death of Pyramus and Thisby
*Audition signup now closed*
What would Shakespeare be doing today if he was still alive? Well, obviously he’d be telling people what it was like to be over 450 years old, plus, like many other people in the theatre industry, he’d be working out how best to perform plays via Zoom.
And that is what KDC will be doing as we perform via Zoom on 31 March – 2 April, the Mechanicals’ scenes from A Midsummer Night’s Dream.
Whilst in lockdown, Quince, Bottom, Snug, Flute, Snout and Starveling must rehearse a play over Zoom to perform it for the Duke and Duchess on their wedding night (via Zoom). Think the Handforth Parish Council meeting, with even more inflated egos.
KDC are holding online auditions to perform in this comedy of putting on a play where we’ll be mining the script for every drop of comedy along with mining the fact we are having to rehearse a play on Zoom for a performance on Zoom for every other drop of comedy.
Quince, Bottom, Snug, Flute, Snout and Starveling are often referred to as Mechanicals. They are a group of amateur and incompetent actors and that incompetence shines through as they rehearse and perform their play.
Gender is not important. Age is not important. Shakespearian experience is not important. What is important is the drive to make scenes that are funny on the page even funnier on the Zoom stage.
The first round of auditions will Thursday 25 February from 7pm revolve around group work, some improvisation and you may be asked to read both Bottom and Quince – see script below.
All the dates and registration links are below. If you’ve got any questions, come along to the interactive Season Launch and put this season’s directors on the hot seat. We’ll be sharing a bit more about our concept season and you’ll get a taste of what being involved in the season will be like. (Yes that means games as well as chat – so put a nice shirt on, grab a drink and be ready!)
