1599: A YEAR IN THE LIFE OF WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE

In the year 1599, William Shakespeare is in trouble. The competition’s got stiffer, his theatre’s been dismantled and everyone’s telling him what he should be writing. But when you’re in trouble, the best way out is to get in a bit deeper.

Inspired by the best-selling book by James Shapiro, and featuring Shakespeare as you’ve never seen HER before, this laugh-out-loud funny, illumination of Shakespeare's plays shows how a single year transformed The Bard’s fortunes.

Friends 2 for 1/ Half Price 

COMMUNITY CAST CALL-OUT: This show needs YOU!

The Theatre and Bristol Shakespeare Fest are looking to find 18 Chippy residents to join them on stage in 1599: A Year in the Life of William Shakespeare.

The community cast will rehearse at the theatre with the show’s director and join the professional company to play the citizens of Southwark, who build the famous theatre.

 

If you’d like to take your chance to step into the spotlight you would need to be available for the evenings (exact times TBC) of Wednesday 13th (rehearsal) and Thursday 14th (performance) of March 2019.

No theatre or acting experience is necessary, in fact we’d particularly like to hear from you if you’ve never been a Shakespeare fan. If you think The Bard is boring we’d like to prove you wrong!

If you’re over 16, available on the dates above and up for a laugh send an email with your name, contact details and 1-2 sentences explaining why you’d like to get involved to artsadmin@chippingnortontheatre.com or call 01608 649107

 

Places are limited, so let us know you’re interested by January 31st 2019 and we’ll contact all with an ‘Aye’ or ‘Nay’ by February 7th

 

Adults £15
Concessions £13
Under 26s £5
