We've begun our search to find the best of Glasgow’s untapped theatrical talent to take part in a landmark production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream in 2016 by the Royal Shakespeare Company at the Citizens Theatre to mark 400 years since William Shakespeare’s death.
In Spring 2016 the Royal Shakespeare Company (RSC) will tour the UK with a new production of Shakespeare’s comedy A Midsummer Night’s Dream. In each theatre, the professional cast will be joined by non-professional actors from the local area playing theatre’s most famous amateur company the Mechanicals, led by one of Shakespeare’s best-loved roles, Bottom. Amateur actors in Glasgow are invited to audition to join the cast for the production’s performances in the city, taking to the iconic Citizens stage as well as travelling to Stratford-Upon-Avon to perform at the Royal Shakespeare Theatre.
