Shakespeare in Clark Park Is Going to Be Epic This Year

More than 100 extras sought for Henry IV battle scene.

Shakespeare in Clark Park is always a good time—provided it doesn’t get rained out, which happens more often than you’d think. And this year, well: If this year’s casting poster is any indication, Henry IV is going to be amazing.


One hundred extras just to stage a battle in the bowl of the park? That’s a lot of blood and gore. Suddenly, summer can’t get here fast enough.
