General Admission    Tickets: $20     Limited Seating

Apr 27-29 at 730p  /  Apr 30 at 2pm  /  May 4-6 at 730p

Concerned with a group of gossipy southern ladies in a small-town beauty parlor, the play is alternately hilarious and touching—and, in the end, deeply revealing of the strength and purposefulness which underlies the antic banter of its characters. The play draws on underlying strength—and love—which give the it, and its characters, the special quality to make them truly touching, funny and marvelously good company. “Harling has given his women sharp, funny dialogue…The play builds to a conclusion that is deeply moving.” —NY Daily News. “…suffused with humor and tinged with tragedy.” —NY Post.

Starring Jen Sanford, Maya Redington, Skylar Ambrose, Sandy Gartner, Eileen Koch and Jean Mee.  Directed by Gary Meitrott.

A discussion will follow the performance which will include a discussion of censorship as well as the play itself.

Auditions: Henry IV-Part 1

Auditions: Henry IV-Part 1

Shakespeare on Main Street is holding Auditions for its summer 2015 production of Henry IV-Part 1.

This play, always an audience favorite, will be set in the Elizabethan era and will explore the themes of honor, parenting and kingship, and class diversity. One characteristic that differentiates Henry IV from other Shakespearean plays is the ease of which it transitions from scenes of nobility to scenes of commoners. These juxtapositions of social and linguistic provide the play with a diverse cast of characters and bring to audiences a rich assortment of human emotions, comedy, drama and history.

Actors (18+ years of age) wanting to audition should prepare a one-minute monologue from Henry IV-Part 1. It does not need to be memorized – just well prepared. Women may play male roles.

Auditions will be held in Brandon on Saturday, April 18, 11am-1pm at the Brandon Town Hall, 2417 Franklin Street (just off Route 7), Brandon VT 05733

Rehearsals begin June 21, Sunday 6pm to 9pm in Manchester. The second, third and fourth week of rehearsals will be in Rutland. Henry IV~Part 1 will open on Friday, July 24th. Performances will be in Manchester, Poultney and Brandon.

If unable to attend any of these auditions, you audition online. For info on how, send an email to info@ShakespeareonMainStreet.org.

For further information, please contact Artistic Director-Gary Meitrott, at 802-282-2581, or info@ShakespeareOnMainStreet.org.

Shakespeare on Main Street is a non-profit (501-C) organization dedicated to bringing the elevated vivaciousness of Shakespeare to Vermont audiences. We depend largely on public donations to stage our productions. www.ShakespeareOnMainStreet.org.
