The Globe Young Players

2014/5 Information

Following the success of this year’s The Malcontent, the Globe Young Players will be returning to the Sam Wanamaker Playhouse to perform Christopher Marlowe’s Dido, Queen of Carthage, directed by Jacqui Somerville.

The Globe Young Players are a company of talented 12 to 16-year olds specially selected and trained by the Globe’s resident experts in the performance of early modern drama.

Dido, Queen of Carthage will play for 6 performances in the Sam Wanamaker Playhouse from 9 to 18 April 2015.

We are delighted to announce that the cast of Dido, Queen of Carthage will be comprised entirely of members of the original Globe Young Players company. We will therefore not be holding any further auditions for this production.

Any further Globe Young Players casting opportunities will be announced here as appropriate.
