Dumpster Flower

By Malissa Petterson

Directed by Malissa Petterson

The members of a struggling theatre company make a last-ditch effort to save their jobs and their interpersonal relationships in this meta comedy. With the artistic director and his staff on the chopping block, the Nova Nilla Theatre Collective stages a bizarre rendition of A Midsummer Night's Dream with imminent failure on the horizon. A fully immersive experience, Dumpster Flower weaves together our love affair with theatre and our theatrical love affairs.

Produced by Broom Street Theater at Broom Street Theater, 1119 Williamson Street, Madison

Performances: March 25 - April 15, 2017

Auditions will be held on January 2nd and 3rd at the Wil-Mar Neighborhood Center from 7pm until 10pm. An invitation-only callback will be held on January 4th from 7-10pm.

Auditions will consist of cold readings from the script and some improvisation exercises, but take a lesson from Kiss Me Kate and “brush up your Shakespeare.”
