Launching Petersfield Shakespeare Festival

By Jay Green, Festival organiser and Head of Drama
Actors of all stripes are invited to audition for outdoor performances of Shakespeare as part of the inaugural Petersfield Shakespeare Festival which will take place in July 2012. This new venture, to be held in the Bedales grounds, is a local community based creative outlet that will deliver high quality entertainment – for the local community by the local community – and will provide an opportunity for actors to work on Shakespeare productions with professional directors. The opening festival will feature productions of Much Ado About Nothing and Twelfth Night. Auditions will take place on Friday 17 and Saturday 18 February at The Olivier Theatre. View more information and audition form. To register, please contact Georgina Harrison on 01730 711599 or visit Twitter or Facebook.
