The Lion in Winter by James Goldman

Contact: via our website or social media


Auditions: Friday 1st June 7.30pm.
Performance: 6th – 9th March 2019


This play about Henry II and Eleanor of Aquitaine, was an Oscar winning film starring Peter O’Toole and Katherine Hepburn.
Directed by Caroline Kay.
Set during Christmas 1183 at Henry II of England’s castle in Chinon, France, the play opens with the arrival of Henry’s wife, Eleanor of Aquitaine, whom he has imprisoned since 1173. The story concerns the gamesmanship between Henry, Eleanor and their three surviving sons Richard, Geoffrey and John and their Christmas court guest, King Philip II of France (the son of Eleanor’s ex-husband King Louis VII of France.) Also involved is Philip’s half sister Alais, who has been at the English court since she was betrothed to Richard at the age of 8, but has since become Henry’s mistress. The aim is to sort out a successor to the English throne – Henry favours John, Eleanor favours Richard and Geoffrey will play both sides against each other and come out on top (he hopes). Henry would also like to have another heir by his mistress Alais, but that would only add to the confusion.
A fast paced, witty piece of drama – ‘Dynasty’ for the Middle Ages.
Characters:
Henry II, King of England – (50+) Though aging, Henry is still very nearly as vital as he ever was. His manipulations of family and others are portrayed as spontaneous and emotional as opposed to the clinical stratagems of Eleanor and the calculating machinations of Geoffrey.
Queen Eleanor – (50+) Eleanor was 11 years older than Henry in reality but that doesn’t really matter here. She is a beautiful woman of hot temperament, great authority and presence. She has been queen for 46 years and is thoroughly capable of holding her own in a man’s world. She schemes against Henry and loves him intensely at the same time. She has contempt for her children but is not willing to see them harmed.
John – the youngest son of Henry and Eleanor. He is sulky and sullen, Henry’s favourite but also the weakest. He vacillates throughout the play and is easily tricked and manipulated by Geoffrey.
Geoffrey – he is the next youngest of their sons and a man of energy and action. He is attractive, charming and has the strongest intellect of the family. He is also a cold and amoral schemer.
Richard (the Lionheart) – he is the third, and eldest, surviving son. Richard is handsome, graceful and impressive and has been a famous soldier since his teens. War is his profession and he’s good at it. He is easily the strongest and toughest of the three brothers.
Alais – she is in love with Henry. Everyone underestimates her intellect and power. Initially portrayed as an innocent, by the end of the play she has acquired a ruthless streak.
Philip II, King of France –he has been King of France for three years. Not as accomplished as Henry in manipulating people but acquires the skill as the play progresses.
John, Geoffrey, Richard, Alais and Philip all have to be of a similar age.

A love develops between Helen and charismatic in-mate Nicki Wade. Other in-mates include Shell Dockley and her runner Denny Blood, the two Julies, old-timer Noreen Biggs, bible basher Crystal Gordon and the ultimate Top Dog, King-of-gangland's Missus, Yvonne Atkins.
Following workshops at the Old Vic and the New Players Theatre in London, it premiered at the West Yorkshire Playhouse in June 2006, and then played at the Garrick Theatre London in 2007.

"Bouncers" by John Godber & "Shakers" by Jane Thornton

Contact: via our website


22, 25 & 26 May and 5 June

Open auditions for Bouncers will be held on the following dates:
Friday 25th May, 7.30pm
Tuesday 5th June, 7.30pm

Open auditions for Shakers will be held on the following dates:
Tuesday 22nd May at 7.30pm
Saturday 26th May at 2pm

It's time to let your 80s hair down and get ready for a big night out, with not one, but two Godber classics.
Start the evening in the disco, where Ralph, Judd, Les and Lucky Eric, your friendly local Bouncers, will take you on a journey through the lives of the many and varied customers who enter through their well-managed doors.
After a brief interval, join waitresses, Nicki, Mel, Carol and Adele in oh-so trendy cocktail bar Shakers, and observe their portrayal of the people whose patronage both pays their bills and gives them aggro.
Written in the 1980s, and retaining all the 'charm' of that era, yet still every bit as relevant and relatable today, we present a back-to-back showing of John Godber and Jane Thornton's Bouncers and Shakers. At rip-roaring speed, over two one-act plays, our eight actors employ physical and vocal humour to play multiple roles, giving you a glimpse into the lives of dozens of different characters. Wince at some, cringe at others, but above-all, laugh with our Bouncers and Shakers.

Auditions: Sunday 10th June, 2.30pm
Performance: 12th – 15th June 2019


This hilarious cricketing comedy needs no introduction, and was first staged by us in 1996.
Directed by Gareth Jones.
Roger is having trouble getting a team together for the afternoon’s fixture against the British Railways Maintenance Division Yeading East but this proves to be the least of anyone’s worries. Bob is having marriage trouble as he is still doing odd jobs for his ex-wife behind his current wife Ginnie’s back. Dennis is also having marital trouble as his wife seems intent on moving house despite the fact they only moved recently. When he finally puts his foot down she sets fire to his new car. Kevin is trying to fight off his over affectionate wife Maggie while at the same time nurse his injured spinning finger and Alex’s new girlfriend ends up shutting herself in the toilets having hysterics. Even Roger’s seemingly perfect marriage to Miriam hits the skids when she discovers he was playing away from home in more ways than one on a trip to Dorking last year. Just when it seems things can’t get any worse for them, it starts to rain.
Characters (All the ages are flexible)
Roger : Roger is the team captain who seems to enjoy being the leader more than actually playing cricket. Likes to think of himself as a great leader of men and organiser but in reality most of the organising is done by his wife. Outwardly he and Miriam have a perfect marriage but there is in fact very little in the way of affection between the two and when he says I Love You it’s usually just to keep her happy and not because he really means it.
Miriam : Miriam has put up with Roger’s cold and almost uncaring attitude for many years and hides all her frustration behind her beaming smile and sunny personality. Miriam is the real organiser of the team but she lets Roger take all the credit for it as she knows it makes him happy. She becomes increasingly frustrated as the play goes on and finds it more and more difficult to keep it in.
Kevin : Kevin is the closest thing Roger has to a real friend on the team and the demon spin bowler. Married to Maggie whom he adores despite their explosive relationship. He often behaves like a petulant child sulking when things don’t go his way and blowing hot and cold with Maggie over her mothering of him.
Maggie : Kevin’s wife who adores him but often behaves more like his mother than his wife. Like a mother she is very good at dealing with Kevin when he gets in a sulk. Maggie is not a stereotypical woman and is more at home doing DIY than domestic chores.
Bob : Bob is married to Ginnie but still spends a lot of time with his ex wife doing odd jobs mainly out of guilt. Bob has a constantly guilty expression and never seems to be able to say not to anyone. Despite his faults Bob is a down to earth sort who has no time for pretentious phonies like Dennis and arrogant show offs like Alex.
Ginnie : Bob’s long suffering second wife. She arrives unannounced at the match when Bob has left to visit his ex-wife leaving Miriam to try to cover for him. Ginnie’s relationship with Roger and Miriam is strained to say the least as Roger was very fond of Bob’s ex-wife and Ginnie views Miriam as an interfering busy body who spends too much time worrying about other people’s marriages and not paying enough attention to her own declining one. It is Ginnie who first hints to Miriam about Roger’s little indiscretion in Dorking.
Dennis : Dennis is a carpet salesman who likes to give the impression he is a well-connected self-made man. Dennis also fancies himself as a ladies man but just comes across as a letch. In an effort to get people to like him he gets equipment for the team which he gives them at a reduced price claiming he gets it wholesale when in fact he has paid full price.
Alex : Alex is a lawyer who, perhaps for this reason alone, is much disliked by Bob – although in truth, if only out of jealousy, there are plenty of reasons to dislike this character; if his abundant snobbery and good looks aren’t enough, he is also by far the best batsman on the team. Perhaps unsurprisingly then, Alex is also the only unmarried male in the play – but makes up for this with nothing less than a pole dancer girlfriend who, in one comic moment in the play, feels the need to lock herself in the toilets due to her treatment by Alex.
Sharon : Sharon is Alex’s latest girlfriend who like most of the women he tends to attract isn’t overly furnished in the brain department. She feels very out of place at the cricket club and the fact that Alex ignores her doesn’t make things any better. She ends up locking herself in the toilets and having hysterics.

Jenkins is the hottest ticket in town, an enthusiastic soprano with less than perfect pitch, she warbles and screeches her way through arias by Mozart and Strauss, accompanied by her trusty pianist. But this delusional and joyously happy woman pays little attention to her critics, and surrounds herself with devoted friends and fans nearly as eccentric as herself.
Based upon a true story, the play follows Florence through charity recitals, balls, bizarre recording sessions, and ultimately to her triumphant performance at Carnegie Hall.

CHARACTERS
FLORENCE FOSTER JENKINS - Eccentric American lady 60-70's. When she sings badly she hears the voice of an angel. (Helpful if the actress can sing and has some knowledge of Opera)
COSME McMOON - Male 30's American pianist. Good comic timing. Piano playing not require but would be an excellent addition!
ST CLAIR - Male 60-70's. Florence's English boyfriend. Full of enthusiasm, thinks the world of Florence.
DOROTHY - 60-70's Florence's friend also eccentric and thinks Florence can sing.
MARIA - Female 30's Mexican cook/maid. Can't speak a word of English. Very funny part.
MRS VERRINDER-GEDGE - American 40's upwards. Disgusted at Florence murdering the operas. Small part

Rehearsal Period:
Rehearsals will take place from early July at 7.30pm for 2-3 evenings on Monday to Thursday, as well as around 3 hours rehearsal on a Sunday. Sometimes there may be a need to rehearse on Saturdays and to rehearse on different days and times. Most actors will only be called for 2 rehearsals a week until the final few weeks, when actors should be prepared to rehearse on up to 4 days a week. If you have summer holidays planned please don’t think this prevents you from auditioning, that is partly why we are starting rehearsals in July to factor in cast members being on holiday.


Please find below the details of the auditions and backstage help required. Please do get in touch with the Director, Zoe with any questions you may have by emailing zoe.thomaswebb@gmail.com
Please note:
This is an amateur production. You do not need to be a member of Putney Theatre Company to audition, but actors and crew will need to become a member of Putney Theatre Company to take part in the show for £20 a year, and a £20 show fee will be due.

Audition Preparation:
Please go to the website to download the audition form, and if you can fill it out before hand and send it to the director Zoe, zoe.thomaswebb@gmail.com

You can download some audition pieces on the website as well, to try to work on any accents prior to the audition, but there is no need to prepare these.

The first audition will involve games and exercises to see how you work with other actors and how you work physically, nothing to strenuous or exhausting but do come in clothes that you can move in. We will also work on some accent and reading work. There is no need to prepare any text beforehand, but please do read the play or at least the plot of Picnic on Wikipedia. I would be wary of watching the film, as it doesn’t have quite the same vibe as the show we are trying to create. Please also make sure you arrive on time as we shall be starting promptly.
The recalls will involve detailed scene work and some games/exercises.

Synopsis:
“What can you do with the love you feel? Where is there you can take it”
Madge in Picnic

It’s Labor Day and the women of Independence, Kanas are preparing for the annual picnic. Sisters Madge and Millie bicker, their mother Flo pesters, neighbour Helen bustles and teacher Rosemary meddles. These seemingly content group of women are disrupted by the arrival of the young and charming drifter Hal. Hearts are broken and lives are changed in the following 24 hours, as Hal’s lively, dangerous, masculine energy wakes up the sleepy community. This Pulitzer Prize winning play explores themes of sexuality, repression, rites of passage and disappointment.

Our production will focus on the sexuality and the role of gender within this production, using music, dance and ensemble theatre. Picnic shows a traditional Americana world where the people who inhabit it are consumed by longing and desire and it’s those hidden feelings that we want to draw out in this production.

“I been talkin' with my buddy, and he thinks I'm virgin enough for the two of us.”
William Inge

Characters: 7 Female. 4 Male

Madge Owens (18 - 20) A homecoming queen. Popular, flirty and fun. She is going out with Alan but feels both unworthy of him and too good for him. At a crossroads in her life and at this young age she already feels like she’s failing.
Milly Owens (16-18) Madge’s younger sister. Clever, solitary and driven. With her fiery temper she couldn’t be more different from her sister. However, she is desperate to understand and replicate her sister’s appeal.
Rosemary Sydney (30s-mid 50s) A school teacher. Funny, independent and lonely. She loves her job and the freedom it brings her. However, she longs for a life she didn’t choose and the possibility of never having it, terrifies her.
Hal Carter (20s) A drifter. Charming, optimistic and adventurous. An ex-college football player, an ex-Hollywood actor, an eternal dreamer. He is a people pleaser, wanting everyone to love him and be in love with him.
Alan Seymour * (20s) Madge’s boyfriend. Kind, romantic and gentlemanly. A rich college student, a class above the other characters of the play. Admired by many but frustrated that he isn’t truly loved by one.
Flo Owens (35-45) Madge and Milly’s mother. Loving, bitter and suspicious. A good mother who is perhaps too protective of her daughters. Her life has been tough, and she is determined that her daughters won’t have to work as hard.
Helen Potts * (40s-60s) Flo’s neighbour. Sweet, welcoming and wise. As a widow, Helen is stuck looking after her bed-ridden mother but longs for a glamorous life filled with fun.
Howard Bevans (30s-50s) Rosemary’s friend. Affectionate, playful and weak. Howard is a fun presence in the community, but he can be easily led and he similarly to Hal is just desperate to be liked.
Irma Kronkite * (20s-40s) Rosemary’s colleague. Gossipy and fun. A view of the community of single ladies that Rosemary is both engrained in and desperate to leave.
Christine Schoenwalder * (20s-40s) Rosemary’s colleague. Friendly and shy. A view of the community of single ladies that Rosemary is both engrained in and desperate to leave.
Bomber * (16-18) A newspaper boy. An aggressive flirter with both Madge and Millie. A view of the local boys of the community.

* For these roles we are interested in anyone who can sing or play any instruments, but this does not exclude people who can’t.

Backstage opportunities available include:
Lighting & Sound operators, Set construction, Stage management

It's A Wonderful Life

19 Jun 2018 7:30pm

The play follows the life of George Bailey from age 12 in year 1919 through his early college years into getting married to Mary Hatch and having 4 children.
His father has a building & loan business and on his death it passes down to George even though that stops George going to university. The business is run for the benefit of the local folk who wouldn’t otherwise be able to afford a mortgage. Much to the annoyance of businessman Potter who tries his hardest to close down the Bailey company.
When George in desperation decides to commit suicide his guardian angel, Clarence, takes matters into his own hands.
This is a truly spirit-lifting play that could only be performed around Christmas time.
It is written for 70 characters but with exception of the main Bailey family and certain others such as Rotter Potter, we can keep the action of this play running fluently by giving each player at least 3 characters. Some are small character parts but this is a tremendous opportunity for everyone to be on stage and show off their acting prowess.
I have managed to reduce the 70 characters to 26. That is still a massive number when we sometimes cannot cast a typical play.
The 4 children play their parents at same age then become the children. Great chance for aspiring youth actors.
Unlike the film the angels are on stage almost the whole play. These are great parts.
George Bailey has as you would expect the central role.
Clarence is as they say “a part to die for”

Birdsong - adapted from the best selling novel by Sebastian Faulks

Contact: via website or social media


Auditions: 20 June 7:30pm & 24 June 2:00pm
Rehearsals will begin mid/late July. Performance dates are 8th-17th November


we have been granted a very special opportunity to perform Birdsong over the period of the Centenary of the Armistice – exactly 100 years after the First World War ended. We will be working in conjunction with the Royal British Legion to commemorate this anniversary.
“No child or future generation will ever know what this was like, will ever understand”
Based on Sebastian Faulks’s international bestselling novel, Birdsong tells the story of a soldier haunted by his past. As a young man, Stephen Wraysford was caught up in an all-consuming love affair in Amiens, France. As the First World War unfolds, Stephen finds himself pulled closer and closer back to Amiens, back to the Valley of the Somme…
Birdsong is a powerful and compelling story about courage, love, friendship and the horrors of war – it is a tale of one man’s quest to understand how far mankind can go and still call itself human…
