THE AUDITION PROCESS
The process will include both workshop and audition elements. Thursday sessions will run from 7pm-9pm (approx), Sunday sessions will run from 3pm-5pm (approx).
The workshops will be a great chance for performers to get to know ‘Happy Days, A New Musical’ and the team behind it. On the workshop dates, performers will be given a crash course of various elements of the show - from acting & reading, to singing & dance.
You’ll get the chance to work with our Director, Musical Director & Choreographer to develop your performance abilities, and get coaching on the pieces we’ll be using for the audition process, and in the show itself. You’ll also have the chance to take a look around our rehearsal & performance space, and get a feel for how we work and what we do.
Though not compulsory, the workshops will be a fun, energetic and exciting way to get to know the show, the production's creative team, and find your feet with the characters before having to deliver an audition, so we'd love to see you there!
Both workshops will be run in a similar fashion, so if you can only make one of the dates that’s no problem. However, if you want to join us for both we’d be more than happy to see you and help you develop further. Please wear clothing that you can move easily in, plus bring a drink!
The audition process will be your chance to shine & show us what you can do! Auditions are for anybody aged 11+, and we’d love to see people from various age groups, backgrounds & abilities, to make the whole production experience as enjoyable as possible.
Upon arrival, performers will be asked to fill out a simple form with contact details and previous experience, plus preferred roles. You’ll then be introduced to some of the team behind DO Theatre Productions & the casting panel.
Auditions will consist of both singing & acting elements. We’ll ask that you prepare pieces for both parts that come from Happy Days, A New Musical, and will post details of these online after our first Workshop. To help you remain at ease during what can be a nerve-wracking process, auditions will consist heavily of group working & workshopping.

Performance Dates: 9th, 10th and 17th June
We are looking for actors, both men and women to take part in the performance of ‘Captain Pouch’s Dream’.
The play is to be performed as a reading, so there will be no need to learn lines.
There is no need for acting experience - enthusiastic amateurs welcome!Captain Pouch’s Dream is a play written by local author Len Holden and is based on real historical events which took place in Northamptonshire, Leicestershire and Warwickshire in 1607.
In 1607 a series of riots led by John Reynolds, known as ‘Captain Pouch,’ exploded across three counties. The cause was the enclosure of land which resulted in many people being evicted from their homes and losing their land and animals. ‘Pouch’ was a charismatic and strange figure who in spired the angry peasants to take things into their own hands by digging up the hedges and throwing down the fences which the new landowners had erected. The riots affected many local villages such as Cotesbach, Haselbech and Withybrook and culminated in a huge battle at Newton, Northamptonshire in which over 50 people were massacred.

Hay Fever is a comic play written by Noël Coward in 1924 which was first produced in 1925. Best described as a cross between high farce and a comedy of manners, the play is set in an English country house in the 1920s, and deals with the four eccentric members of the Bliss family and their outlandish behaviour when they each invite a guest to spend the weekend. The self-centred behaviour of the hosts finally drives their guests to flee while the Blisses are so engaged in a family row that they do not notice their guests' furtive departure.
So I am looking for four family members (2m 2f), four guests (2m, 2f), and the maid. All the characters have great lines. The maid, who has fewer lines than the other roles, has the potential to get the best laughs, so all lovely parts to play. I do want to hear the lovely ‘Coward’ accents of the time. I am deliberately not specifying ages to the characters, because there are potentially a few different possibilities.
Judith Bliss A large role which requires a real ‘presence’ on stage. Judith still demands the limelight, as she struggles with the realities of family life after her career as an actress. Not able to reconcile herself to being the lady of the manor, she yearns to return to the adoration of her fans.
David Bliss Married to Judith. He is a writer of some acclaim, who is out of place in an English country house. His character would be better suited to being a bohemian street painter in Italy. He is totally absorbed in the completion of the book he is writing.
Simon Bliss Son of Judith and David, and a would-be artist. He is spoilt and unruly, and given to tantrums. He describes his family as ‘slapdash’.
Sorel Bliss Daughter of Judith and David. She is bored with most of life, and wishes her family could be more ‘normal and bouncing’.
Clara She was once Judith’s dresser, now she is the housekeeper. She speaks as she finds, secure in the knowledge that her job is safe - there would be no-one else willing to put up with the Blisses!
Sandy Tyrell Judith’s guest for the weekend, and a sporty fan of hers. He is a young boxer. Fit and good-looking, and an outdoorsy type.
Myra Arundel Simon’s guest, and knows the Blisses. She is well-dressed, confident and sophisticated. Although she is at the house by invitation of Simon, her motive is to meet with David. Before Myra even appears on stage, Judith, describes her as a "self-conscious vampire" who "goes about using sex as a shrimping net’.
Richard Greatham Sorel’s guest and a diplomat – described as ‘iron-grey and tall’. As a ‘diplomatist’, he is probably the most qualified guest to deal with the Blisses. He is well-travelled.
Jackie Coryton David’s guest, she is a brainless but ‘perfectly sweet flapper’. She has been invited so that David can ‘study her a little in domestic surroundings’. She is extremely self-conscious and terrified of embarrassing herself.

Audition Sunday 26 February, 6.30pm
Neighbourhood Watch will be performed at The Bull Theatre in Barnet from 11-13 May
Bluebell Hill Development is a wonderful place to live, until an innocent mistake leads to the residents taking extreme measures to protect themselves.
In this play, highly topical given recent political events, Ayckbourn suggests that the biggest threat to the neighbourhood is not the danger that lies outside it but the fear that spreads within it. With some blissful comic moments, love at first sight, affairs, medieval torture devices and gnomes, there really is something for everyone.
Neighbourhood Watch is GST's entry in the Barnet and District Drama Festival.

Performance: Weds 14th June - Sat 17th June 2017
CADS next production which runs Weds 14th June - Sat 17th June 2017 will be 'Run For Your Wife', a comedy by Ray Cooney. This will be directed by Alex Bass, whose first directorial venture 'Par For The Course' has recently been nominated for the NODA District 11 - 'Best Drama' award!
Run For Your Wife is a superb example of the British farce which had audiences rolling in the aisles in London and New York! A taxi driver gets away with having two wives in different areas of London because of his irregular working schedule. Complication is piled upon complication as the cabby tries to keep his double life from exploding.
John Smith is a taxi driver and very ordinary, he has a lovely wife and a perfect existence in Streatham and a lovely wife and a perfect existence in Wimbledon. And he flits between Streatham and Wimbledon – a distance of only 2 miles – like an over-sexed bumble bee.
This could have gone on forever except that one day a policeman...but that would be giving the game away. RUN FOR YOUR WIFE ran for over eight years in London followed by a New York production. It was described by the critics as “British comedy at its best” and is constantly being revived all over the world.
A play in two acts - The action takes place in the Wimbledon flat of John and Mary Smith, and, simultaneously, in the Streatham flat of John and Barbera Smith
