Auditions today for 20 roles

Auditions will be held today, at 7 p.m. in the Duke Theatre at Lake Tahoe Community College.

There are roles for 20 men and women, ages 15 and up. Cross gender casting will be considered.

One of Shakespeare’s best comedies, the LTCC production “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” will have a unique stamp on the original.

Demetrius loves Hermia, but Hermia loves Lysander and Helena loves Demetrius. They all chase each other into the forest ruled by Oberon and Titania, king and queen of the fairies, who are having their own battles.

Add to this a group of “rude mechanicals” or just plain working stiffs, trying to rehearse a play in the same forest, and you have perfect comic mayhem. And of course it all ends happily ever after.

Performance dates are Nov. 9-11 and Nov. 16-18 at 8 p.m., and a Sunday matinee, Nov. 19 at 2 p.m.

Chamber merger Thursday’s topic

Much participation is expected for a South Lake Tahoe Chamber of Commerce meeting slated for 8 a.m. Thursday at MontBleu Resort Casino and spa.

South Lake chamber member Bob Attinger has been circulating a petition asking for member participation to rescind the merger.
