Derby Shakespeare Showcase Auditions


  • Derby Shakespeare Theatre Company 93 Kedleston Road Derby, England, DE22 1FR United Kingdom

Derby Shakespeare Showcase - 10th to 11th November 2017- Shakespeare House.
Auditions 23rd, 24th & 30th May at Shakespeare House from 7.30pm

"On 11th and 12th November I will be putting on The Derby Shakespeare Theatre Company Showcase. The first half will consist of scenes from the (cannon) Shakespeare plays that we have thus far not performed in the Company’s 109 year history. The second half will be selection of some of my personal favourite scenes in Shakespeare. I would like to do these scenes differently therefore giving people the option to possibly play parts that they might not in a main stage production. I’d like as many members to be involved as possible, old and new; there’s plenty for people to go at! It will be an 8 week rehearsal period between September and November so the more folk involved, the less lines they’ll have to learn! I look forward to seeing you at the auditions and working with you on this production. Please select a piece or pieces from the attached show script for you audition. Thank you!"
