DUE TO COVID, AUDITIONS ARE BY
Our main company auditions information page is available at AUDITIONS
The auditions for Shakespeare's Henry V are announced.
Due to Covid, we will be commencing with a performance as part of Bristol Shakespeare Festival, which, as things stand, is highly likely to be a digital show with the actors working together over Zoom, and streaming the show.
This show does have tentative live performance dates around Devon, however these are entirely subject to the course of the pandemic, and may be moved/delayed to ensure that cast & crew are able to perform safely, audiences attend safely, and that venue ticket sales are able to be viable.
Ages. genders, etc at a glance.
As with all our Shakespeare projects, we tend to cast the majority of roles as gender-blind - this means that any gender can audition for the same roles. Shakespeare's plays were notoriously male-heavy, originally, but that does not always fit a 21st Century way of working. People of all ethnicities are welcome to audition for any role. We are also very flexible on ages. While we are not casting children (under 18s) in this show, we do not have strictly preconcieved notions of characters ages, other than ensuring that any family groupings reflect a relevant range of ages. What is most important is that we select the strongest actors for the roles.
