Lights! Camera! Action! In the tradition of the old studio system and Central Castings, WRCT will attempt to salute (and skewer) Hollywood . A large cast (of thousands) is needed to represent all of the movers, shakers, and up and coming wannabes identified in Ken Ludwig's “Shakespeare in Hollywood ”.

THE STORY: It's 1934, and Shakespeare's most famous fairies, Oberon and Puck, have magically materialized on the Warner Bros. Hollywood set of Max Reinhardt's A Midsummer Night's Dream. Instantly smitten by the glitz and glamour of show biz, the two are ushered onto the silver screen to play (who else?) themselves. With a little help from a feisty flower, blonde bombshells, movie moguls, and arrogant "asses" are tossed into loopy love triangles, with raucous results. The mischievous magic of moviedom sparkles in this hilarious comic romp.
