The Winter’s Tale cast announced for Shakespeare’s Globe
The Shakespeare’s Globe in London has revealed casting for its forthcoming production of The Winter’s Tale, directed by Globe Associate Artistic Director Sean Holmes. For the first time in the Globe's history, this production will inhabit both of the venue's theatres - the open-air Globe Theatre and the candlelit Sam Wanamaker Playhouse. The show will start in the Sam Wanamaker Playhouse during the scenes set in the aristocratic luxury of Sicilia; and then the action - and audience - will transfer during the interval to the Globe Theatre, for the scenes set in pastoral Bohemia. The Winter’s Tale is the first production in the Globe's Folio 400th Anniversary celebrations throughout 2023, which mark 400 years since the publication of Shakespeare's First Folio of plays in 1623. The cast of The Winter's Tale includes Toby Barnett-Jones as Mamillius, with Ed Gaughan as Autolycus, Colm Gormley as Antigonus / Old Shepherd, Nadine Higgin as Paulina, Beruce Khan as Camillo, John Lightbody as Polixenes, George Robinson as Mamillius, Bea Segura as Hermione, Sarah Slimani as Florizel, Sergo Vares as Leontes, and Jacoba Williams as Perdita. The characters in ‘Bohemia’ will be played by members of the Soldiers’ Arts Academy, a not-forprofit organisation offering serving and former military personnel opportunities to participate in the arts. Director Sean Holmes said in a press statement that: “Embarking on this production of The Winter's Tale is an incredibly exciting prospect. The opportunity to create a show with such an incredible cast that celebrates both of the Globe’s iconic spaces is both daunting and thrilling. I’m especially looking forward to collaborating with Soldiers’ Arts and building further on the strong, creative relationship between our two organisations.” The creative team includes Sean Holmes – Director; Grace Smart – Designer; Laura Moody – Composer & Musical Director; Roberta Zuric – Assistant Director; Anna Watson – Candle Consultant; Verity Naughton – Children’s Casting Consultant; Glynn MacDonald – Globe Associate – Movement; Tess Dignan – Head of Voice; Tamsin Hurtado-Clarke – Movement Director; Katie Heath – Seasonal Voice Coach; and casting by Becky Paris, Head of Casting at Shakespeare’s Globe. The musician will be Richard Jones. Book tickets to The Winter's Tale at Shakespeare's Globe in London
