Pimlico, London

Princess Ida; or, Castle Adamant



Contact: admin@gloc.org


Audition Dates: 31st January and 3rd February
Performance Dates: Performances will take place from 30 May to 02 June 2018 at the Bridewell Theatre, central London and the production will transfer to the Harrogate G&S Festival in August.


Grosvenor Light Opera Company are actively recruiting principals and chorus for their upcoming production of Gilbert & Sullivan’s Princess Ida. Rehearsals take place on Wednesday nights (and the occasional Sunday) in central London, starting at the beginning of February. Performances will take place from 30 May to 02 June 2018 at the Bridewell Theatre and the production will transfer to the Harrogate G&S Festival in August.BOur fully staged productions with orchestra offer an excellent platform for young professional singers looking to develop their performing experience
We will be holding an open rehearsal on Wednesday 24th January at St. Gabriel's Hall and auditions for principal roles will take place on Wednesday 31st January and Saturday 3rd February (also at St Gabriel’s). No need to audition for chorus parts!

Auditions will last around ten minutes consist of a song of the candidate’s own choice and an extract of spoke libretto, followed by a brief chat. Songs suggested below are for guidance only – candidates should feel free to choose any appropriate piece that shows them off to the best of their ability. In the interests of time, however, please select a section of around 2 minutes in duration.

Roles:

Hildebrand – baritone (Bb2 – F4)
Excellent diction required but still very much a lyric rather than patter role.
Audition song: Act 2 Finale “Some years ago No doubt you know” (either verse)

Hilarion* - lyric tenor (B2 – Bb4)
Audition song: Act 2 Finale “Whom thou hast chain’d”

Cyril* - light lyric tenor (C3 – A4)
Comic role but requires lyric singing. Ideally a lighter and higher than voice Hilarion, however we could work around this.
Audition song: Act 2 “Would you know the kind of maid” (either verse)

Florian* - lyric baritone (Ab2 – F4)
Audition song: Act 2 “I am a maiden” (verse 3)

*These three roles include extensive ensemble singing and require excellent musicianship. In the score, Cyril is the higher of the two tenors, however this can be adapted depending on casting.
Audition song: Act 1 “If you give me your attention” (any verse)

Arac, Guron, Scynthius - bass baritone (F2 – E4)
In the score Arac takes the lion’s share of the solo writing, however this is occasionally divided between the three. Solo passages are qasi-handelian, requiring a good top and decent agility.
Audition song: Act 3 “This helmet I suppose” (verses 3 and 4)

Princess Ida - dramatic soprano (D4 – Bb5)
Note: Ida is less florid than many other G&S soprano roles, instead demanding a fuller sound.
Audition song: Act 2 “Minerva/Oh, goddess wise”

Lady Blanche - contralto or mezzo (G3 – E5)
Audition song: Act 2 “Now wouldn’t you like to rule the roost” (either verse)

Lady Psyche† - soprano or high mezzo (C4 – Ab5)
Audition song: Act 2 “A Lady fair” (any verse)

Melisa† - mezzo soprano or soprano (C4 – Eb5[G5])
The part has a fairly small range and can be done by any voice, but it needs a youthful quality.
Audition song: Act 2 “Now wouldn’t you like to rule the roost” (either verse)

†Note: ensemble lines in “The woman of the wisest wit” can be swapped depending on casting.

Iver’s award-winning amateur theatre company The Richings Players are delighted to announce their 2018 summer production, the much-loved classic tale of Mr Toad and his band of river bank friends in “The Wind in the Willows”.

This delightful and ingenious adaption of Kenneth Grahame's classic tale of river-bank antics by Alan Bennett with original and enchanting songs by Jeremy Sams created a sensation at the National Theatre in the 1990s and follows the adventures of Mr Toad, Ratty, Mole and Badger. Along the way, Toad finds himself in prison and manages to escape, but not before Toad Hall, his pride and joy, has been overrun by the wicked Weasels. Thanks to the efforts of his kind and concerned friends, all ends happily, after an exciting battle to regain Toad's home…but will Toady learn his lesson?

The play will be directed by RP Vice-Chairman Will Torrent who last directed “Robin Hood” in 2011. Ever since Will saw the National’s magical production at The Old Vic in the 1990s, he has always has always loved the story and has always wanted the Players to perform it. He will be joined by Erica Tugwell as Musical Director and Phoebe Pearson-Hall as Choreographer. With lots of parts for children and adults alike, they’ll be something for everyone especially the audience!

The Read-Through will take place on Friday 9th February at St Leonard’s Hall in Richings Park starting at 8pm and Auditions for the Principal roles (ages 14+) will take place on Monday 19th February at Coppins (Iver Village Hall) at 7.30pm.

The play will be performed in Iver Village Hall from 6-9th June including a Saturday Matinee.

Auditions: FEB 19 Mon 20:00 & FEB 22 Thurs 20:00
Production week - Weds 23 to Sat 26 May, at the Headgate Theatre, Colchester


Colchester Theatre Group's next production is The Foreigner, a fun, two act comedy by American playwright Larry Shue and directed for CTG by Elaine Lloyd.
The story takes place in a fishing lodge in rural Tillman County, Georgia, where two Englishmen, Froggy and Charlie, arrive as guests. The shy Charlie agreed to accompany Froggy on the trip after his sick wife begged him to go. When people at the Lodge try to talk to Charlie, he remains silent: he is very shy, depressed about his wife’s illness and cannot find the words to reply. Froggy claims that Charlie cannot talk because he is a “foreigner” from an exotic country and he doesn’t understand English. Taking the explanation that he’s a non-English speaker as fact, the Lodge’s guests quickly begin revealing their secrets, and Charlie soon discovers scandals amongst some of the local residents.

Staff Sgt “Froggy” LeSueur – Age late forties
Male Lead – British accent
Charlie Baker – Age mid forties
Male Lead – British accent

The Cripple of Innishmaan by Martin McDonagh

The Cripple of Innishmaan by Martin McDonagh



A Play-reading Tuesday 20th February 2018
Members' Auditions Tuesday 27th February 2018
Open Auditions Thursday 29th February 2018
Performance: 11-14 July 2018


In 1934, on a small island off the West coast of Ireland, the arrival of a Hollywood film crew (who we never see) on a neighbouring island gives local youngsters the chance to escape the island and head for the USA.
Local disabled orphan, Billy, able and bright, and in love with local girl Helen, is cared for by two aged aunts. He is derided by the locals (and his aunts) as no-one understands him. His aunts protect him from discovering his parents tried to drown him at birth. Billy, desperate to audition, to break away from the bitter tedium of his daily life, persuades a local fisherman to take him to the neighbouring island by telling him he is dying of TB.
Billy is cast in the film and goes to the USA. He discovers Hollywood alone is no better than Innishmaan alone so returns home. Helen finally agrees to go out with him. Ironically, at the end of the tale, he ‘gets the girl’ only to discover he really does have TB.

The characters are funny, alcoholic, vicious, bigoted and cruel, and all crippled – one physically, others emotionally. This bleakly comic tale, with vivid images of all aspects of human life, where truth is uncovered gradually, successfully plucks at your heartstrings with deep, dark and powerful humour.
The Cripple of Innishmaan will be performed at The Mill Arts Centre, Banbury 11-14 July 2018. Directed by Chrissie Garrett.

Synopsis
Alec Frith runs a bookshop and lives in the flat above with his wife, Maggie. He is having an affair with his glamorous assistant, Liz, with whom he has arranged an illicit holiday while his wife is away with friends. With everything so carefully planned what could possibly go wrong?
Well, his cantankerous mother arrives, having ‘escaped’ from her care home, followed by his son and daughter, whom he is relying upon to manoeuvre the situation to his advantage, who bring along their own problems and are definitely more a hindrance than a help. He does get to Marbella but with whom?
