Some good friends of mine are putting up their annual production of a Midsummer Night's Dream in Prospect Park in Brooklyn. This is a children's production, and it's incredibly fun and well-attended. Everyone involved is extremely experienced with outdoor work and Shakespeare. It'll be fun, you'll meet lots of great people. One thing that's great about it is that even though it's child friendly, the production is one that adults enjoy as well. I know Pam and I have watched and enjoyed it each year!

Seeking experienced actor to play Oberon and Puck (Puck as hand and rod puppet) in a showcase. $200 stipend. Ideal skill set = experience with Shakespeare, outdoor performance, and either puppetry or good at picking up new physical skills.
