The Neo-Political Cowgirls are calling for digital submissions from diverse actors and performers for our outdoor summer production of William Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream (as seen through the sleepy eyes of a young girl becoming herself....) running July 21st- August 7th 2022 in East Hampton, NY. Co-directed by Kate Mueth and Josh Gladstone.


Please audition with a 2 minute monologue or monologue excerpt from the play and allow your authentic magic to lead in your audition. If you’d like to do a one minute monologue and one minute of movement, that’s great too. It’s up to you. We are looking for strong, diverse actors who are exceptional movers as well as dancers who act and are comfortable with text and improvisation. We will be seeing both Equity and Non-Equity trained actors, trained dancers, singers, acrobats, youth performers, all ages, etc. ALL are welcome to submit. 

If you already are a master of video submissions and have all the bells and whistles in place to record a sleek looking video, that’s wonderful and thank you, we really appreciate all that entails! If you’re recording on your last dollar from your bedroom/living area of your studio apartment with your laundry spilled across your bed as a backdrop, we understand and will think no less of your audition. Please, no matter your choices and abilities in cutting a video for us, it’s most important that you put your energy and detailed work into sharing your talent, your passion, verbal skills, your wild moves, your joy at creating and we will be so grateful for that and the time you gave to this submission. This production will hold several Actor's Equity contracts and the remaining are paid non-union roles.

  • Headshot and resume (as attachments please!)

  • If you have access to local East End housing
