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.
