Due to Covid-19 and its financial impact on the theatre, we have decided to shelve our plans for our production of Disney’s Tarzan and replace it with William Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream. Stage Door does not want to compromise our ability to provide our audiences with the finest in live theatre and we feel this change will allow us to maintain the quality you have come to expect from our theatre.

 

Auditions will be held on:

Sunday, June 7th and Monday, June 8th, 2020 from 6pm-9pm.

 

ABOUT THE SHOW
William Shakespeare’s  A Midsummer Night’s Dream  is one of the world’s most famous love stories, perhaps even one of the first romantic comedies,. When a feuding fairy King and Queen of the forest cross paths with four runaway lovers and a troupe of actors trying to rehearse a play, their disputes grow. The magical royal couple meddle with mortal lives leading to love triangles, mistaken identities and transformations…anything can happen in a magical moonlit forest…
