Looking for a black actor for ‘One Man’
We want to increase the diversity of GDS’s membership and we’re looking for a black actor to appear in our next play, ‘One Man, Two Guvnors’.
We have always been open to new members from any background and we want to encourage people from all sectors of the community to get involved, especially those that are currently underrepresented. As a starting point, we’ve chosen to perform ‘One Man, Two Guvnors’ as our next production which features a Jamaican character, Lloyd Boateng. We’re eager to find someone local to play the part.
As a community group we want to reflect our community, and encourage more people to get involved whether on stage, backstage or in the audience. For the role of Lloyd we are looking for a black male actor, ideally with a playing age of 30 or above, but anyone is welcome to come and get involved. No experience is necessary, just enthusiasm and commitment and they must be available each evening from the 9th to 14th May as well as most Tuesdays and Thursdays for rehearsals.

Urinetown - The Musical
Just turn up
Read Through - 1st Feb 2016 8:00pm

What is Urinetown – The Musical? Don’t be put off by the title. It’s twisted, it’s dark, and it’s hilarious!
Winner of three TONY Awards, Urinetown is a tale of greed, corruption, love, and revolution in a time when water is worth its weight in gold.
A musical satire set in a fictional future where a terrible drought has crippled the city. Water is so scarce that the government enforces a ban on all private toilets in an effort to control water. The citizens must now use pay-per-use toilets owned and operated by a corrupt corporation. Those who try to dodge the fee risk being taken away to “Urinetown”, a mysterious place where many have been sent but no one ever returns.
The oppressed masses rise up under the leadership of Bobby Strong, a hero who decides he’s had enough, and plans a revolution to lead them all to freedom! Will they win? The only way to find out is to see Urinetown – The Musical.
Urinetown started a trend of ironic, self-aware, breaking the fourth wall shows that spawned the likes of The Producers and Book of Mormon. Combining social themes that are relevant to today’s climates with an outrageous perspective, wickedly modern wit and the magic of musical theatre the show produces gales of unbridled laughter.
Urinetown is unique, it’s everything a musical should be and somehow more. Its clever lyrics, brilliant script and captivating score were praised for reinvigorating the very notion of what a musical could be. It is hilariously funny and touchingly honest. Providing a fresh perspective on ‘the musical’ it parodies everything from the legal system, capitalism, social irresponsibility, populism, bureaucracy, corporate mismanagement, municipal politics, climate change to musical theatre itself!

|Characters to be cast:|
The smooth talking PR is married to Rosy; whilst he may be able to calm the ruffled feathers of farmer Morgan he soon loses his cool when confronted by Charles and Serena’s provocative niece and finds it difficult to explain his behaviour when discovered alone with the semi-clad Tabby – playing age @ 35-45
The ex-SAS man is married to Serena; the upper-middle class, hunting type couple are completely uninhibited, consumed by their lust for each other and free with their use of bad language - playing age @ 35-45
The obnoxious teenage niece of Serena and Charles, high on drink and drugs, she arrives uninvited to crash the weekend. She loves to provoke and knows how to push Ross’ buttons but also shows a slightly more compassionate side to Keith. Tabby is required to strip to her underwear, which will naturally be chosen to ensure the actress is comfortable and unselfconscious – playing age 17
All cast members (except the farmer) must be comfortable using bad language

Jack The Ripper
Auditions will take place from 8pm on Wednesday 17th February 2016
The launch of the show takes place on Weds 3rd Feb at 8pm
Full details of the characters and audition pieces can be found on our website, under auditions.
The play is a musical reconstruction of incidents relating to the East End murders which took place between Friday, August 31st and Friday, November 9th, 1888. A solution of Jack the Ripper's identity is hinted at, but the play is an atmospheric commentary rather than an historical re-enactment, shifting between reality and artificiality, with characters representing "real" people as well as members of the music hall audience and players. It is an essential feature that some characters are called upon to play more than one role. They thus have a life within the Music Hall and also in reality. The Chairman also plays the authoritative roles of Sir Charles Warren, the Magistrate, and the Dock's Foreman, while Montague Druitt is also known as Toynbee and plays the villain in the melodrama, and the magician.

Open Auditions (Film & theatre) for "Mordred" (Brixham)
Please visit our auditions page for an overview of what to expect at our castings. www.southdevonplayers.com
Sunday Feb 28, 2016, 4.30pm
Mordred is a feature film and theatre production, being directed by Laura Jay, one of our founders.
A gritty, dark tale, Mordred is an Arthurian-era drama, heavily influenced by the earliest legends of Mordred, who is traditionally seen as King Arthur's arch-nemesis, and illegitimate son. In the earlier legends, Mordred is much more of an ambiguous character, and not pure evil, as in modern re-tellings, this film and theatre show tells of the legends, from Mordred's point of view.
This drama is set in the 530s, against the backdrop of the Saxon invasions, heavily influenced by Celtic legends and Druidic traditions, and the earliest tales of Arthur, and his followers. The film will be made across South West England, with as much use as possible of actual Arthurian locations, and ancient sites, in Devon and Cornwall. The theatre shows will be performed in South Devon (as a certainty) and we will also be looking to perform in Cornwall, as well.
Unfortunately we will not be able to accept video submissions. Attendance at auditions must be in person.
The project runs as a profit share production, as per the terms set out on our website.
All named cast will be fully credited on IMDB
Anyone under the age of 16, must be accompanied at all castings, rehearsals and filming/ performances, by a parent or legal guardian.
Most of the ladies will be involved in fight/ battle scenes, fighting alongside the men, especially in the Saxon raids, and at Camlann, and mandatory combat training will take place in Brixham at the community centre for all relevant successful cast. If you have a physical reason that this would not be possible, please email us to discuss first. email@example.com
As this a theatre show as well as a film, rehearsals for the stage show will take place on Wednesday evenings and / or Sundays afternoons, at Chestnut Community Centre, 1 - 3 Poplar Close, Brixham, TQ5 0SA
St Margaret's Church Hall, Victoria Avenue, London N3 1BD
