Madison Shakespeare Company is conducting joint auditions for its two February 2019 productions, Henry the Fourth Part Two (performances Feb 8-16) and A Valentine’s Affair 2019 (performances Feb 12-14). Read on to see which signup you should use:

Candidates who have not appeared in a scripted MSC production 2015-present, please sign up for a monologue slot on Sunday, September 23. Your prepared monologue should consist of a sonnet or Shakespearean monologue under two minutes. Memorization is encouraged but not required. After your monologue, you may be asked to stay to read from additional text. You may also be asked to read in scenes with partners. Please also come prepared to fill out a conflict calendar, or better still, print and fill your own.

Callbacks will be on Monday September 24 and Tuesday September 25. Candidates who have appeared in a scripted MSC production 2015-present should skip the monologue and sign up for a callback slot on Monday or Tuesday.

Auditions will be held at the Bartell Community Theatre on the Drury Stage, with the kind permission of Strollers Theatre. 113 E. Mifflin St, Madison WI.

Rehearsals for Henry the Fourth Part Two begin December 9.

Rehearsals for A Valentine’s Affair 2019 will take place in November 2018 at Lakeview Moravian Community Church, with occasional brush-up rehearsals and pop-up performances in December and January, plus tech rehearsals on February 10-11.

The roles of King Henry, Prince Hal, Hostess Quickly, Francis, and Falstaff in Henry the Fourth Part Two have been cast.
