We are delighted to announce that we will be holding three promenade performances of scenes from Shakespeare in Greenhead Park in July 2016. The dates are to be finalised but are provisionally set for 7, 8 and 9 July. Watch this space for updates!
Shakespeare in the Park will comprise a scene or section from five of Shakespeare’s plays – Romeo and Juliet, A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Twelfth Night, Henry V, and Macbeth. Each will take place at a different location within the park and will last for 20-30 minutes. There will be an interval, and along the way there will bindexe all sorts of other entertainment, including music, singing, and much more!
We are now looking for directors for this exciting new adventure for the Huddersfield Thespians, which will commemorate 400 years since Shakespeare’s death. Directors will be responsible for all aspects of their scenes, working with our wardrobe, casting, staging, lighting and sound teams. Expressions of interest – for one scene or more – should be sent Lynne Whitaker, lynne.whitaker@talktalk.net by 15 January. Please do contact Lynne if you have any questions. We will hold interviews in the week of 18 January.
We are also looking for expressions of interest from actors for the following parts;
Romeo & Juliet: Romeo, Juliet, Tybalt, Capulet, Nurse, Benvolio and Mercutio.
Midsummer Night’s Dream: Quince, Bottom, Snout, Starveling, Flute, Snug, Titania, Oberon, Puck, Peaseblossom, Cobweb, Moth, Mustardseed (these last four parts are likely to be played by children.)
Macbeth: Witch one, witch two, witch three, Hecate, and Macbeth.
Henry V: Henry.
Twelfth Night: Malvolio, Olivia, Toby Belch, Andrew Aguecheek, Maria.

As most parts are relatively short, please feel free to express an interest in different roles. Again, please email Lynne if you are interested – lynne.whitaker@talktalk.net– by 18 January. Auditions will be held once directors have been found, towards the end of January.
Join us to celebrate the life of the world’s greatest playwright and to reprise open air theatre in Huddersfield – our last production in Greenhead Park was in 1922!
