All My Sons

Contact: via our website or social media


Auditions: 29 Nov & 3 Dec 8:00pm
Production dates: Wednesday 10 April to Saturday 13 April 2019 at the Headgate Theatre, Colchester.
Rehearsals will start on Monday 7 January 2019 and continue twice weekly on Mondays and Thursdays in the Bunting Rooms.


All welcome to these open auditions for Colchester Theatre Group's April 2019 production!

Colchester Theatre Group is pleased to announce the auditions for its Spring 2019 production, All My Sons by Arthur Miller, a well-known American classic play directed by Sue Atkin! These are open auditions with varied and interesting parts for 6 males and 4 females, and everyone is welcome to attend.
The action of the play is set in 1950s USA and takes place in the backyard of Joe and Kate Keller’s home over two days. Joe Keller, the chief character, is a man who loves his family above all else and has built up a successful engineering business to support them. The action opens with the loss in a storm of an apple tree, planted as a memorial to Joe and Kate’s son, Larry, missing in action in the war. The other son, Chris, arrives home to announce his engagement to Ann, who had been engaged to Larry. This is not welcome news to Kate who does not believe her son is really dead. As the action unfolds Joe's past, concerning a court case about his factory producing faulty engine heads for aircraft which led to the deaths of many servicemen in the war and for which his then partner, Steve Deever, went to prison, comes back to haunt the family. New information comes from Steve’s son, George, which together with a revelation from Ann, brings the play to a dramatic conclusion.

Main parts
Joe Keller is in his early 60s. Largely uneducated he has risen from the work floor to be boss of a successful money making engineering business which supports his family, wife Kate and son Chris. Question: has he really reconciled his past actions with the present consequences?
Kate Keller, Joe’s wife, is in her early 50s. Her life revolves around her belief that Larry is still alive and is coming home. Question: why does Larry take precedence over Chris?
Chris Keller, the remaining son, is in his early 30s. He had a difficult war and this has made him wary of the family business and making money. He wants to marry Ann. Question: what does he really think of Joe?
Ann Deever is in her mid to late 20s. She is the daughter of Steve, Joe’s former partner, and is a young woman who knows her own mind and now wants to marry Chris. Question: why does she believe that Larry is dead?
George Deever, Ann’s elder brother, is in his early 30s. He moved away and has become a successful lawyer in New York. After a recent visit to see his father, Steve, he arrives at the Keller home to prevent Ann from marrying Chris. Question: why did he ignore his father for so many years?
Supporting parts
Jim Bayliss is a doctor, in his 40s who lives next door to the Kellers in the Deevers’ old house, with his wife Sue. He has a formed a good relationship with Joe. Question: how much does he know about Joe’s past?
Sue Bayliss, Jim’s wife, is in her 40s. She is forever chasing Jim about patients’ telephone calls but would prefer him to follow his heart and take up research. Question: what does she really think of the Kellers?
Frank Lumley still lives in his childhood home near the Kellers, now with his wife, Lydia. He is in his 30s and has a fairly simple outlook on life. He is working on a horoscope for Kate about Larry. Question: does he actually realise what is going on around him?
Lydia Lumley, Frank’s wife, is in her late 20s. She is forever going on at Frank to fix things about the house but is a bit scatty herself. Question: does she wonder why she never married George?
Bert is a local young boy who believes Joe was once a detective and does his best to keep an eye out for local “trouble makers”. Question: why does he idolise Joe?
[This part is for a boy aged 8 but we shall play it a bit older and are looking for a young man aged at least 16, who can look and play the part of a young boy.]

Cymbeline

Cymbeline

Auditions are 5th, 6th, 9th December 2018
Performance: Friday 1st March – Sunday 3rd March (4 performances) 2019, The Merchant Taylors’ Hall


Cymbeline is a wild tale of heroic princesses, jealous men, stolen infants, and scheming Queens. This is one of Shakespeare’s greatest but most under-performed plays, featuring riveting scenes filled with exquisite verse.
For the first time, the YSP will be presenting an ‘original practices’ production in Renaissance dress, in a limited engagement 1-3 March at one of York’s hidden gems, the medieval Merchant Taylors’ Hall. In a modern twist on Shakespeare’s all-male company, all roles will be open to actors of all genders, and the audience will see the actors get ‘into role’ on stage, much like Mark Rylance’s production of Twelfth Night. A mix of traditional and non-traditional gender casting will illuminate numerous themes in the play, and actors will be supported throughout the rehearsal process on how to perform their characters’ gender roles.
Auditions will be the evenings of 5th and 6th December (6.30.-9.30.), with recalls and additional auditions on the afternoon of the 9th (2.00.-5.00). Please prepare a short monologue in verse by Shakespeare or one of his contemporaries, preferably memorised. Singing, musical ability, and stage combat are a plus! All actors must be 18 or older by the start of rehearsals in January.
Email yorkshakespeareproject@gmail.com to secure a time, or to arrange a video audition if none of these times suit. We look forward to hearing from you!

Death Knell by James Cawood

Death Knell by James Cawood

Contact: via our website or social media


Open Auditions: Thursday 6 December 2018, 7.30pm
Performance: May 2019


Successful Playwright Henry Roth takes delight in telling his neurotic wife, Evelyn, he has a new, ‘seismic’ play to unleash on the theatrical world. To prepare for its stage debut, he has invited the charming and charismatic (but unknown) actor, Jack Willoughby to their remote Highland home to prepare for the leading role of murderer. Jack’s arrival sends Evelyn into a flat spin when she realises he is her lover - a relationship developed during her time supposedly in rehab in London. Is Henry aware of the relationship?
With the arrival of Inspector Lazan from Scotland Yard - apparently on the hunt for the Highland serial killer, The Ghoul - the play takes another turn. Is he who he claims to be?
In an outstanding script, sending the audience reeling from one plot twist to another, the genre of “Thriller” is taken on an exciting new journey.
Each character is well drawn, the dialogue is lean and the action is non-stop. Actors should be prepared for physically demanding fight scenes and use of weapons. Previous stage combat experience not essential as training will be given.
Roles available :
Henry Roth (40-60)
Evelyn, Henry’s wife (20-40)
Jack Willoughby (20-40)
Inspector Lazan (20-40)
If you would like further details come along to the Read Through on 27 November 2018, 7.30pm at The Mill Arts Centre, Banbury. If you are interested in auditioning but unable to make the above date, please get in touch.
Performance Dates are 1 - 4 May 2019. You do not have to be a member to audition but will be required to join if cast. See BCP website for membership options.
We look forward to seeing you!

Auditions: Sunday 16th December 2018 at 3-5pm
show dates 16-18th May 2019


Failand Drama Circle (near Bristol BS8 7TS) invite you to their OPEN TO ALL Casting Read Through for our May 2019 production of A Bunch of Amateurs by Ian Hislop and Nick Newman:

The script is bursting with humour and offers some strong character parts.
Keen to boost his flagging career, fading Hollywood action hero Jefferson Steele arrives in England to play King Lear in Stratford – only to find that this is not the birthplace of the Bard, but a sleepy Suffolk village. But instead of Kenneth Branagh and Dame Judi Dench, the cast are in fact a bunch of amateurs trying to save their theatre from developers. Jefferson’s monstrous ego, vanity and insecurity are tested to the limit by the enthusiastic am-dram thespians. As acting worlds collide and Jefferson’s career implodes, he discovers some truths about himself – along with his inner Lear!
CHARACTER LIST:
Jefferson Steel – a fading Hollywood star who is arrogant, insecure, brash, gauche, demanding, vulnerable and ultimately aware of his own absurdity.
Dorothy Nettle – director of the Stratford Players and the moving force behind keeping the theatre alive. Her sweet and accommodating manner conceals her inner steel.
Jessica Steel – Jefferson’s teenage daughter who has been neglected by her Hollywood star father and now wants to make him pay for it.
Nigel Dewbury – solicitor and leading light of the Stratford Players. Pompous, stuck-up and self-regarding, he believes he is the star of the show and should play all the leading roles. He also fancies his romantic chances with Dorothy.
Mary Plunkett – owner of The Rectory Bed and Breakfast. Jolly, generous and an unashamedly adoring Jefferson Steel fan – although somewhat confused about which roles he played in his films - and how keen he is on her.
Dennis Dobbins – handyman and village Mr Fixit. Avuncular though slightly dull, Denis is star-struck by Jefferson and fancies heading up his entourage of one.
Lauren Bell – thirty-something marketing executive former physiotherapist and the sponsor’s wife. Passionate about the arts and smarter than her husband allows her to be, she’s treated as a bimbo because of her looks.
Journalists/actors – 4 required. These characters will be onstage the majority of the show and will need to sing. — at Failand Village Hall
