Love's Labour's Lost

Welcome to ACT's 2017 Shakespeare Production

Guides: Only one of the following paragraphs will be displayed at a time. Please make sure the information is accurate for each case.

regpreview: Registration for this production will be open from March 1st through the 14th.

regopened: Registration for this production is open now and will remain open through March 14th.

regclosed: Registration for this production is now closed. E-mail notifications will be sent after the lottery, and we will update this page at that time.

regclosed_mailed: Registration for this production is now closed and acceptance e-mails have been sent. If you have not received a notification, please contact the producers.

At the end of the registration period, acceptance into the production will be decided based on a lottery. Children of ACT Board members have a limited guarantee of acceptance into the production. All ACTors accepted into the production, including board children, must audition for casting. Specific roles are offered to ACTors at the sole discretion of the artistic staff.

Please note the rehearsal schedule for the show. You will not be required for every rehearsal, only for those where your character is called. You can look at the schedule links for last summer's productions to see how this works. Absences are strongly discouraged throughout the production, and attendance is mandatory from the beginning of dress rehearsals on, so please plan accordingly. All actors and at least one parent are also expected to attend the first meeting on Monday, March 28th, where we will share more details about the production and have sign-ups for volunteer committees.

All payments or payment arrangements must be secured before auditions. There are no refunds after the start of auditions. Although we often have a waitlist, bringing actors into the production after auditions presents numerous challenges for the staff and does not give the late arrivals a fair start to the production.

More details regarding the audition process will be posted after acceptances are mailed out.

As is now our standard policy, final casting decisions will not be made until after the first week of rehearsals. The staff will use this time to get to know the cast and explore the show.

About the Show

Romance, revelry and enchanting music ignite in this contemporary, yet lovingly faithful, musical adaptation of Shakespeare's comedy.The King and his best buds decide at their five-year college reunion to swear off the joys of women. But when four cute, clever girls from their past show up, they're forced to reconsider all of that nonsense! Add in an outlandish Spanish exchange student, a performance art-loving professor and an entire brass band, and love and devotion are put to the test with hilarious results.

Offstage Opportunities

Offstage opportunities are available for all our productions. Contact us for more information.
