Auditions - Henry VI


It’s that time again, folks! Come on out to the Garfield Shakespeare Company’s auditions for Henry IV, the direct sequel to last year’s spring show Richard II. The script combines Parts 1 and 2 into a single show around a spectacular set piece – they are turning the Main Gallery of the Garfield Park Arts Center into a traditional English tavern! They are partnering with Garfield Brewery to help with this grand endeavor, and they want you to be part of it!

Auditions will run from 6pm – 9pm at the Garfield Park Arts Center on Tuesday, January 8th, Wednesday the 9th, and Thursday the 10th. There is no need to prepare a monologue – we will be reading selections from the script. Full scripts are available via email upon request.
