Iowa City – Dreamwell Theatre announces auditions for Henry the Fifth, William Shakespeare’s deepest exploration of war. Angie Toomsen directs. Performances will be 2–3 weekends in June (actual weekends to be finalized). This marks the first time Dreamwell has ventured into the realm of Shakespeare.
WHEN: Tuesday, February 22, 6:30 p.m. – 9:30 p.m. and Wednesday, February 23, 6:30 p.m. – 9:30 p.m.
