Auditions will be held on June 24, 25, 26, from 7 – 9 p.m.

Actors should be prepared to recite a Shakespearean monologue of no less than four lines. Auditions, open to the public, will be held at CNY Arts Center, 11 River Glen Drive on the CCC Fulton campus.

“We were very pleased with the joint participation of actors from three Oswego County theater companies last summer when we debuted Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet,” said Nancy Fox, producer. “It was a departure from what we had been doing and other local theatre companies in Oswego County seldom do Shakespeare. The response among local actors was an affirmation of the desire to challenge themselves with the classic, more difficult language and artistry of Shakespeare. Audience response was equally receptive and supportive.”

CNY Arts Center and Fulton Community Theatre have collaborated on space and lighting equipment needs on the Arts Center’s new stage as part of FCT’s 25th anniversary season.

The collaboration continues with this production of Shakespeare’s comedy Much Ado About Nothing.

The show is scheduled to run August 7 – 16.
