Auditions for A Midsummer Night's Dream and for Street Theatre, Present Company, May 23 and 26, 2013

Present Company, Austin TXPresent Company is thrilled to announce auditions for our next two projects, Shakespeare On the Farm: A Midsummer Night's Dream, and Happenstance. First-round auditions for both projects will be Thursday, May 23rd, 6:30-9pm at the Carver Museum, 1165 Angelina Street (click for map ) and Sunday May 26th, 2-5pm at The Circus Tent, 6404 Hergotz Lane (click for map). 

Please email headshot/resume, ideal audition time, and specified project (actors are welcome to audition for both!) to for an appointment. Walk-ins will be seen as time allows. All projects have actor stipends/profit shares.

Our fifth Shakespeare On the Farm, A Midsummer Night's Dream, will open the second week of September at the magical Rain Lily Farm in East Austin. Rehearsals will begin late July/early August. Actors are asked to prepare a 2-minute comedic Shakespearean monologue. Callbacks will be Saturday, June 1st at Rain Lily Farm, 10-2 pm.


Happenstance, a roaming street theatre piece, will be performed in and around Austin at various times and locations. Happenstance is based in movement, rhythm, and rhyme, and we are looking for triple threats and good movers unafraid of some fun displays of public performance. This is a collaborative endeavor in which all participants contribute to the creation of the piece. Rehearsals will begin late June. Please have a 1-2 minute contemporary monologue or poem (original encouraged) prepared. Movement-oriented callbacks will be the following week.

Thanks and break legs!
