Shakespeare at the Lake! Auditions

May 21, 2022 - 2:00pm

Come one, come all to auditions for Shakespeare at the Lake!  After two years of online productions, Shakespeare at the Lake (SATL) will once again return to the stage with a live performance. Set on another habitable planet, the 2022 production of Twelfth Night, Or What You Will, transports you back in time with a classical comedy, and forward into the future of interplanetary colonization. Twelfth Night is  an engaging comedy with heartfelt love, trickery and deceit, and, of course, mistaken identity. The production will also include original Shakespeare songs, with musical accompaniment performed live alongside the action. Performance dates are scheduled for July 30 and 31 at Library Park in Lakeport, and August 5-7 at Austin Park in Clearlake.  

Auditions will be held on Thursday, May 19 at 6pm and Saturday, May 21 at 2pm at the Mendocino College Lake Center.  No experience is necessary. Everyone (high school age and up) with an interest in performing is encouraged to attend auditions. Audition materials can be accessed at www.laketheatre.org. Those cast will be required to register for THE 220 at Mendocino College. Scholarships are available. Rehearsals will take place two-four evenings during the week (depending on your role) from late May through the performance dates. Questions about auditions or the play can be sent the director, John Tomlinson jtomlinson@mendocino.edu or (707)355-2211.

Shakespeare at the Lake is a co-production of Mendocino College and Lake County Theatre Company, partnering with Lake County Friends of Mendocino College, City of Lakeport, and City of Clearlake.
