For the Summer Shakespeare Festival of 2024, Erna Finci Viterbi Artistic Director Barry Edelstein has adapted and will direct a city-wide collaboration of William Shakespeare’s epic historical drama Henry the 6th. The production is thrilled to invite San Diego community members to help conceptualize, design, direct and perform alongside a professional cast and crew of theatre-makers. The presentation of this text marks the completion of producing Shakespeare’s full canon at The Old Globe. It will also be a community-wide celebration of our local partnerships that have evolved over the last decade through our Arts Engagement Department.
This Fall/Winter, join the professional production team behind Henry 6 and learn about their hands-on approach to developing the technical elements of the show, as well as a chance to participate in creating a design element that will be featured in Henry 6!
This workshop series is for adults 18+. Participants 15 and up may participate in the presence of a legal guardian.
