The Merry Wives of Windsor – Audition

From Richard Bray

Many of you will be aware that the S.V.P. Committee has agreed that in the summer of 2020 we will perform The Merry Wives of Windsor at Acton Reynald Hall. I am hoping that you will consider attending for the reading/auditions which are to be held in Shawbury Village Hall on Sunday 19th January at 2.30 p.m. and Wednesday 22nd at 7.30 p.m. The play will be performed during the week 21st to 28th June 2020 and rehearsals will commence on the 8th March and be held on Wednesday evenings and Sunday afternoons.

The play, one of Shakespeare’s funniest comedies, should be a pleasure to rehearse and perform. There are lots of parts for both men and women and of course there is a need for backstage crew and front of house team members. I plan to bring the play out of its Elizabethan setting into more recent times and I hope all the characters will come to life and entertain our audiences.

If you are interested but cannot make the readings please let me know – tel 01939 250612 or 07966633116 or email at [email protected]

I look forward to taking part with you in Shawbury Village Players 40th year and the production of The Merry Wives of Windsor.
