Community Players slate reading of Shakespeare

Midsummer Night's DreamThe Community Players of Greene County are introducing their audience to William Shakespeare and to staged reading.

Auditions will be held Sundays, May 10 and May 17, at 6 pm at the Masonic Lodge at 120 N. Wilson in Jefferson for a staged reading of Shakespeare’s “A Midsummer Night’s Dream.”

Clay Ross of the Players explains a staged reading as a scaled down version of a play with a small amount of props, sets, and costumes. “We’ll even let you keep your script in your hand during the performance. It’s just a group of people laid back, having fun, working their way through a script.”

The script calls for eight men and eight women of varying ages. Rehearsals will be Sunday evenings during the summer and then twice a week for the last three weeks before the production. The production is slated for Sept. 11-13.

he staged reading will be directed by Josh Tuel and Linda Nichols. For more information, visit the Players’ Facebook page.
