Auditions for Henry V

From David Harris
Department of Theatre and Cinema Arts
Folsom Lake College

The Falcon’s Eye Theatre, at Folsom Lake College, announces AUDITIONS for HENRY V by William Shakespeare, directed by David Harris.

Harris writes:

Please join us for William Shakespeare’s thrilling war drama The Life of King Henry the Fifth. When King Henry the Fifth of England is insulted by the King of France, he leads his army into a battle of vengeance and bravado against the proud French elite. Along the way, the young king must struggle with the sinking morale of his troops and his own inner doubts. The war culminates at the bloody Battle of Agincourt.

Audition Dates: September 14, 2009, 7:00 pm on a first come first served basis.

Audition Location: Aspen Hall room, FL 1-20, on the FLC campus.

Rehearsal Dates: September 24 through November 5, weekday evenings and Saturday afternoons.

Performance Dates: November 6 through November 22, Friday and Saturday nights at 8:00 and Sunday afternoons at 2:00. There is one Thursday night performance, November 19, at 8:00.

Please prepare a monologue from any play by Shakespeare no longer than ninety seconds. Memorization requested but not required. Auditions will also consist of cold readings.

Henry the Fifth contains a large and diverse cast. Roles will be double and triple-cast, so versatile character actors are sought. Experience is not required. Actors of any race, disability, or age over 18 are needed. Experience with Shakespeare and with stage combat are plusses, but not required. High school students must have approval from their counselor to participate. Also we are looking for people interested in scenery, costume, lighting, and sound design, and people interested in Stage Management.
