Anyone interested in taking part is advised to contact Michelle Graham from Chorley Youth Zone via on 07715672710 or email Inspireyz@onsideyouthzones.org to arrange a time slot.

Chorley Youth Zone on a Mission to find star turn for London show

BUDDING actors and actresses from Chorley are being offered a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to star in a London stage show inspired by outer space.

Talented teenagers aged 14-19 are invited to take part in public auditions at the Lancastrian Suite at Chorley Town Hall on Friday August 12 – with a role in a show called The Mission up for grabs for the winner.

The talent search is a joint collaboration between Chorley Youth Zone and the Chorley Group.

Participants will audition in front of a panel of judges, including Jim Cartwright, who wrote the hit play ‘The Rise and Fall of Little Voice’.

A shortlist of finalists will then be invited to perform an extract from The Mission as they compete for a one-off role in the show at the Greenwich Theatre, London, in September.

Chorley Youth Zone chairman Andy Turner, who is also owner of the award-winning Chorley Group, said: “The idea for this came on the back of an email I received from my nephew, Jordan Turner, who recently formed his own theatre company, The Outbound Project.

“They devised a show called The Mission, which is described as ‘a fast paced, highly physical and sometimes amusing exploration of mankind's ruthless ambition and endless fascination with outer space’.

“Earlier this year The Outbound Project won the Les Enfants Terribles Partnership Award, in association with Greenwich Theatre, which guarantees them a slot at a Pleasance venue at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.

“They then ran a Kickstarter campaign to raise the money needed to cover the costs of putting on the show in Edinburgh, which the Chorley Group contributed to.

“In return for our donation, Jordan offered us the chance to take a part in the show during its run at the Greenwich Theatre in September so, through our links with the Youth Zone, we decided to run a talent contest for budding actors and actresses from the Chorley area.

“This is a brilliant opportunity for any young people interested in theatre and the performing arts to play a starring role in a London production and we can’t wait to see what talent comes forward.

“It’s open to anyone aged 14-19 and the Chorley Group will cover the costs of the winner’s trip to London.”

AUDITIONS Monday 15th August, GKR 7.30pm
Performance: Tuesday 1st November - Saturday 5th November


A house that holds a secret A husband that hides a secret A wife clinging on to her sanity A Victorian thriller set in the gloomy evening of a smog bound London
CAST REQUIRED

Bella - younger than her husband whom she adores and wants to please but deep down is aware things are not as they should be.......dressed elegantly, needs to have the look of someone on edge all the time. Aiming to achieve a gentle build up to controlled hysteria! This will be the main focus during rehearsal with this character. Bella will look pale so no glamorous makeup. This is challenging role for any actress and a gem to play. WORDS NEED TO BE LEARNT ASAP

Jack - Bella's husband. Slightly / lot older no specific ages. ..Elegant, self assured, manipulative and, evil, always composed for first half of play. Would like this character to treat Bella as a child initially in the gradual process of making her believe and the audience believe she is going mad. Likes women .believes he is invincible and can win whatever he plans. Needs to be able to pucker up with maid! WORDS NEED TO BE LEARNT AS SOON AS POSSIBLE

Detective Rough (retired) - From first entrance this character needs to make audience believe he is a force to be dealt with. He does spring onto the scene slightly randomly in my personal opinion so the character needs to have total command of stage and believability as soon as he appears. He will need to be/look mature. Rough has never forgotten an unsolved murder years earlier of Alice Barlow and knows the Barlow rubies have never been found. He has been and is in contact with the housekeeper and is getting so close now to bring Jack down BUT needs to convince Bella of the danger she is in which is difficult as she is now beginning to seriously doubt her own sanity. He does have this fatherly attitude toward Bella as well as his professional pride. He does also have some lines that can lighten the mood as well. MAJOR ROLE LARGE AMOUNT OF DIALOGUE WORDS NEED TO BE LEARNT ASAP

Housekeeper: Elizabeth - This is the perfect part for someone who likes being on stage but has not been for a while and would prefer not to have too many lines to learn. Alternatively someone who would enjoy a character role without to much stress just to be able to enjoy being on stage. This character is worried for her mistress, knows deep down the husband is up to something and has seen Bella’s gradual decline and self doubt. Instinctively wants to protect Bella. She is a motherly character, facial expressions and two slightly different ways of dealing with Bella and Jack so that audience are aware of her concern for Bella. Possibly with subtle London accent.

Maid: Nancy - This character provides the sunshine to a rather dark play. Nancy walks with a spring in her step. Knows she has a way with men, sly and knows mistress is uncomfortable giving her instructions. Thinks mistress is a poor thing. Thinks husband is gorgeous .Treads a fine line between insubordination and cheek. Thinking Cockney accent would work? Please give it a try. Be prepared for passionate clinch with Jack!

Due to the switch of time in performance slots for Gaslight, there is a lack of time for candidates to absorb play at leisure so there will be specific sections to read for auditions.

Scripts are in the box office with photocopied sections of dialogue to be used as audition pieces for each character.
Please READ the play, familiarise yourself with plot to understand characters AND the amount of dialogue you would have to take on board if successful in gaining part!

Please return the books to box office as we only have a few asap but retain the audition pieces to digest and maybe even learn some, that would be soooooo nice!
