Before the show enjoy our wandering troupe of improv players,
have something delicious to eat, hurl Shakespearean insults at someone snap a selfie with Shakespeare, and then enter the stage for a performance of A Midsummer Night's Dream

We are also looking for performers for our festival: folks who are comfortable with improvising and interacting with the audience, as well as singers to entertain pre-show.

You can be part of the improv troupe OR part of the Midsummer cast OR part of BOTH groups

We will ask you for your preference. We will do some improv games at auditions with those actors who are interested.
