Actors in A Midsummer Night's Dream are volunteers. But we understand that travel to be in a play is difficult with our current gas prices.  We will be offering $50.00 to each cast member upon completion of the show.

All roles will be filled by actors age 14 or older at the time of the audition submission.

The Cast will be split evenly between the teenagers and adults.
