If you have ever fancied trying acting, now is your chance.

TADS Theatre Group is looking for a huge cast for a production of Shakespeare’s Henry V which will be performed next June.

Henry V tells the story of King Henry’s invasion of France and draws its audience into the heady atmosphere of war without the need to stage a single battle.


TADS hope this will resonate with audiences as it coincides with the 100th anniversary of the First World War.

David Sachon of TADS said: “The play allows fascinating glimpses into the lives and fates of characters caught up in a cause that some are at a loss to understand – and that others encourage or accept for its glory and heroism. It is powerful, gripping, at times humorous, and thought-provoking in the way it presents a country driven by the fever of battle.”

TADS is looking for a range of actors but particularly men, ages from 20 to 60.

Auditions are on January 7 and 15 at 8pm at TADS Theatre, Conger Lane, Toddington.

TADS’ last Shakespeare production won the NODA 2012 overall best production shield, best technical award and a number of best actor awards and director Sue Sachon has recently been awarded a PhD in Shakespeare studies from the University of London.

Rehearsals will begin in early February on Monday and Thursday evenings.
