    New London - Flock Theatre prepares for its 30th annual outdoor summer Shakespeare season and spring show by holding auditions on Jan. 31 and Feb. 1 for “Jane Eyre,” “As You Like It,” and “Henry V.”

    For the spring show, Flock will remount “Jane Eyre,” which had been converted into a Zoom film in 2020. The new production will be presented live at the Shaw Mansion in New London in May 2024. The play, based on Charlotte Brontë’s classic novel, is a new adaptation written by long-time Flock collaborator Julie Butters, who previously adapted “Little Women” with the company also for the Shaw Mansion.

    In its 30th summer Shakespeare season, Flock will pair the comedy “As You Like It” with the history play “Henry V” (which finishes the “Henriad” and continues Flock’s War of the Roses series). The plays will be presented in June and July in the Connecticut College Arboretum and Westerly’s Wilcox Park, among other venues.

    Initial auditions will be held by appointment only on Jan. 31 and Feb. 1 at the Thames Club in New London. Time slots will be available both during the afternoon and evening and will last about 10-15 minutes.

    Auditioners do not need to attend multiple days, just one. Zoom auditions are possible by request.

    Actors of all ages and experience are welcome. Familiarity with the plays is encouraged.

    Auditioners will be provided sides from the plays. No monologue preparation necessary.

    To set up an audition, people should email flocktheatre@hotmail.com with their name and which date and time they would like to schedule a audition.
