It’s August and that means Barefoot is back at Summit Rock with our favorite zany fundraiser, UNREHEARSED. This Summer brings two opportunities to see A Midsummer Night’s Dream with two casts of Barefoot Alumni!

Taking it back to the beginning, Barefoot is thrilled to be tackling our favorite summer romp, Midsummer, with alumni new and old this summer.

Lovingly called “Shakespeare for Sports Fans,” Unrehearsed allows our actors to stretch their improv muscles.  Actors are assigned a part and have 30 days to learn lines; at no time are they permitted to rehearse with each other. The performance is complete with a referee who calls “foul” for missed cues, flubbed lines, etc. and the audience can place bets on who they think will foul the most. It’s a two hour extravaganza where half the fun is watching the magic of theatre happen live and in-person, while hoping the actors will mess up!

Featuring: Natalie Ahn, James Alt, Laurel Andersen, Carl Bindman, Jordan Bland, Kelly Blaze, Andrew Dunn, Preston Fox, Nicky Fraebel, Alex Gomez, Johnny Gottsegen, Addy Paul Jenkins, Rachel Lawhead, Collin McConnell, Caeden Musser, Erinn Nelson, Amy Pan, Clinton Powell, Jefferson Reardon, Regina Renee Russell, Clare Solly, Simone Stadler, Robin Friend Stift, Abby Wilde
