Enter Stage Right Auditions for “Will On The Water 2012″

Casting Actors, Musicians and Singers

Enter Stage Right Casting Call

Enter Stage Right announces auditions for “Will On The Water 2012″ – a two day “user friendly Shakespeare festival” in the city of St. Clair. This third year of the festival will include scenes and soliloquies from Shakespeare’s plays during the festival, August 11th and 12th. Dramatic performances and music from the Consort singers will take place in Palmer Park on the river, while townspeople, heralds, town criers and jesters will entertain in Palmer Park and Riverview Plaza. The Consort will prepare and perform under the direction of Festival Musical Director John Unger. “We want to give participants a sense of what a summer day would have been like in London in 1599” says Elaine Schatzline-Behr, Festival Director. “His theatre was very popular because it was very entertaining.” Short performances will run through the day, with music, games, crafts, food and a variety of items for sale. It’s a family friendly environment with good food, good fun and a taste of something you can’t find anywhere else. The event is sponsored by the city of St. Clair and the Blue Water Arts Committee.
