SUPERHAL – The Superhero Origin Story of Shakespeare’s Henry V

Directed by John Galea

Open Auditions

Fri-Sat 27-28 August 2016
Above Haberfield Library
78 Dalhousie St Leichhardt

If you have a Shakespearean or other monologue prepared, we’d like to hear it, but it is not required as we will be using excerpts from 1&2 Henry IV and Henry V and you will have time to prepare. Actors of both gender are invited to audition for any of the 14 roles.

Some experience with speaking French is preferred for the roles of Katherine and Alice.

Stage Combat and/or circus arts experience will be highly regarded.

If you are auditioning for the role of Katherine/Lady Mortimer, please prepare a song that you can sing à capella.

Performance Dates: 7-18 March 2017, NIDA Parade Theatre Kensington
