Based on the hit Peter O'Toole film of the same name, My Favorite Year is an uproarious comedy with the soul of vaudeville and old Hollywood, and features a lush Ahrens and Flaherty score, featuring the musical theatre favourite Larger Than Life. Synopsis: It's 1954, and Benjy Stone, writers' assistant on TV's King Kaiser Comedy Cavalcade, is assigned the daunting task of chaperoning veteran Hollywood swashbuckler Alan Swann. Swann is in town making a live guest appearance, and as a result of his antics Benjy’s career is on the line. As Benjy develops an unlikely alliance with Swann, we encounter stage fright, payback, a reconciliation, a love story, and a climactic battle for freedom, beauty, truth and the future of variety television.

The Rise and Fall Of Little Voice



Contact: via website or social media


Auditions Tues 6th June 7.30pm

All the audition pieces are below, please feel free to download and print them. I would suggest you study them carefully, maybe go on YouTube; there should be clips from the 1998 film called “Little Voice”. There are differences of course but for those auditionees who have not had the good fortune to see or read the play it will serve as a good indicator.
The play is set in a Northern Town so all the characters need to speak with an accent, but don’t get hung up over it… a good generic Northern Accent will suffice!
As regards the role of Little Voice, or LV as she is consistently referred to, you will be required to sing at the audition and impersonate, to the best of your ability:-
Shirley Bassey – Hey Big Spender
Marilyn Monroe – I Wanna be Loved by You
Gracie Fields – Sing as We Go
Edith Piaf – No Regrets (Non, Je Ne Regrette Rien) …so practice your French!!
Judy Garland – Get Happy
You will find an MP3 of each song on our website which you can download for rehearsal purposes, and again, why not go on YouTube and watch the original artists perform, get to understand their mannerisms etc.
Matthew Jefferey will be at the Piano and will offer all the help you need.
I look forward to seeing you all.
Jeremy Smith (Director)
You can listen to the MP3 files here

THE SHAKESPEARE REVUE

THE SHAKESPEARE REVUE



Contact: via website or social media


Auditions Tues 21st June 7.30pm

The Shakespeare Revue is a light hearted look at Shakespeare, his life and work. It is a collection of comic sketches, poems and songs inspired by the Bard, put together in the style of a 1950s revue; it includes material by Alan Bennett, Noel Coward, Cole Porter, Dillie Keane, Fry and Laurie, Victoria Wood and many others. The material is in a variety of styles ranging from classic music hall to ‘high drama’.
The casting is fairly flexible requiring a minimum of 5 (2F, 3M), but the show will easily accommodate up to 10. There are no ‘characters’ to audition for but there are certain qualities that would be useful –
* The ability to sing – some singers are required so this would be helpful but not everyone in the cast has to sing as there are plenty of spoken pieces
* the willingness to have a go at something different
* the willingness to make a fool of oneself
Audition – 21 June 2017
Production dates – 9-14 October 2017RRehearsals – Monday’s and Wednesdays from August

ONE MAN, TWO GUVNORS by Richard Bean, Directed by Ian Amos.



Contact: If you cannot attend but are interested in auditioning/being considered please email Ian Amos : ianamos50@gmail.com


Auditions: Mon 26th June at 7:45pm
Performance Dates are Wed 25th to Sat 28th October at 7:45pm


Cast: 6 Men and 3 women
Synopsis:
A fast-paced physical comedy with lots of run-around slapstick humour, closely based on Goldoni’s ‘The Servant of Two Masters’ (which some of you may remember Dedham performing as the open air production in 2002). Bean sets the play in Brighton in April 1963, among criminals both local and those hitting the seaside from London. The acting style will be quite stylised, a little exaggerated. At least 6 men and 3 women. Possibility of additional cast for cameo roles.
Cast List:
FRANCIS -30 – 50 Gets by doing a bit of this and a bit of that. A little thick but wordly wise – the typical ‘fool’. Lots of physical humour. Very much the lead role. He pulls off being the servant to two masters – among many others things….craving food – and then craving love.
RACHEL 30+ Strong. Moral. She dresses as her dead brother (Roscoe Crabbe) for most of the play. In love with Stanley. The other master. 2nd lead.
STANLEY - 30+ A bit of a hooray Henry – in love with Rachel. Killed her brother accidently and on the run – to Brighton. One of the two masters.
DOLLY - 30 – 50. Charlie’s loyal bookkeeper. Brassy. Quite up on the new feminism which is coming in. But needs a man – and that sometimes wins.
LLOYD - 40+ Minor criminal, admired by all, loyal. Learnt most things – good and bad – in Parkhurst it would seem. Including being a great cook which led him to run the pub that the two masters stay at. This part is written to be played by a West Indian – but it will probably be necessary to tweak it.
CHARLIE 50+ The head of the family. Minor Mafia. Hard-nosed, not be to be crossed, cares a lot about his daughter.
PAULINE 25+ Charlie’s daughter. In love with Alan. Not bright. Straight-forward and good natured. Promised to Roscoe Crabbe as a ‘deal’ but as the play starts she is getting engaged to Alan as Roscoe is dead – only to be confronted by the dead Roscoe (Rachel). Distraught at finding her marriage of convenience is back on.
ALAN - 25+ Wants to be an actor – and acts like one! Madly in love with Pauline. Lives life as though it is a play and not real at all.
HARRY- 50+ Alan’s father. Posh, eccentric. Slightly corrupt solicitor to Charlie.
ALFIE - 70+ possibly a double with Harry. Comical old man waiter. Slow walking and shaking. Lots of fun had with his newly fitted pace maker.
GARETH 40+ Another waiter. Possibly a double with Alan .
Lots of cameo parts – couple at seaside, vicar, two policemen, old lady, taxi driver etc that may be filled by doubling or using additional cast members.
