Wisconsin Shakespeare Festival seeks Actors for Premiere Performance
The Wisconsin Shakespeare Festival, a program of Pablo Center at the Confluence, announces its mainstage production, Shakespeare’s “A Midsummer Night’s Dream.” A casting call for auditions is open now through March 20. Premiering as part of the Festival’s inaugural season, the production will be presented on a replica set of Shakespeare’s Globe in London constructed in the Jamf Theatre of Pablo Center.

The Wisconsin Shakespeare Festival is an annual summer event kicking off in 2023 that centers its work around engagement, growth, creativity, and community. Installing scenery inspired by the Globe Theatre in London, audiences and the community will enjoy an immersive theatre experience, paired with other educational and artistic endeavors throughout the summer months.

“A Midsummer Night’s Dream” is one of William Shakespeare’s classic comedies; a story of order and disorder, reality and appearance, and love and marriage. The story featuring lovers lost in the forest, a royal wedding, mystical sprites and fairies, a comedic troupe of Mechanicals, and a mischievous trickster named Puck.

Auditions are now open for “A Midsummer Night’s Dream”, with submissions accepted through March 20, 2023. Local actors are encouraged to apply, as the Festival’s goal is to cast a variable mix of professional (non-Equity), community, and collegiate performers. All acting roles are paid and housing may be included for those who live more than 30 miles away from Eau Claire.

Auditions are virtual. Submit headshots, resumes, and a video of an audition piece by March 20, 2023 at: bit.ly/WSFaudition2023. For more information, visit the Pablo Center’s website or email the Festival at wsf@pablocenter.org.
