Blue Stockings by Jessica Swale

Contact:
Contact the director by email for details - gilly.manor.farm.barn@gmail.com

Auditions dates 11, 14 & 15 September
Performance dates March 24 - 27 at The Electric Theatre,Guildford


Jessica Swale's play opened at Shakespeare's Globe theatre in August 2013. She chose as her theme for this, her first play, a cracking subject: the battle fought at Girton College, Cambridge, in 1896 to earn women the right to graduate.The Girton girls study ferociously but when the men graduate they leave with nothing but the stigma of being a 'blue stocking' - an unnatural educated woman. The play follows 4 of them over one tumultuous academic year with its distractions of love, the cruelty of the class divide and the strength of the opposition who will do anything to stop them
'Blue Stockings' offers a range of exciting roles ( 8f and 11m) with age ranges from 20 - 50+ for a minimum company of 12 actors.

Drama Group President, Morag Smith said:
“We’d love to meet you on Fri 12th or Tue 16th September if you are interested in getting involved in any aspect of the pantomime - whether you fancy treading the boards playing a part, helping out backstage, building scenery, organising dance routines, planning lights and sound, making props or costumes, or singing and dancing in our pantomime chorus - please do come along and meet us in and find out how you can participate.

If you are unable to attend this date and would like to considered, please contact for an alternative auditions date to be arranged.
southdevonplayers@gmail.com

Open auditions, talking place on Sunday Sept 14th, at 1pm

These are panto auditions, for a panto with a difference. This show remains a family-friendly production as with all our shows, but combines traditional panto, with the glamour of a Vegas-style show, to create an all new type of show, based on the legend of the Mexican bandit, Zorro.
Auditions are open to all, regardless of age and experience, what we do require is that you are reliable, a good timekeeper for rehearsals.
Unusually for this show, we are looking for performers aged 7 and upwards for the childrens chorus, as opposed to simply adults, for dancing and singing. All children must be accompanied at rehearsals and shows by a parent or legal guardian. (free coffee is available, or you might consider being in the show yourself too!)
Actors - a variety of roles are required, from leads to chorus. Some of the principal actors will also be required to sing and dance.
Singers- we are looking for solo and chorus singers.
Dancers- we are looking for dancers, or people willing to dance. You will need to be able to learn a variety of choreography, either solo or ensemble.
Rehearsals run on Sunday afternoons 1 - 4pm, and Wednesdays 7 - 9.30pm. If you need extra help with singing or dancing, extra rehearsals may be arranged for those involved in a specific scene or act.
We do not charge a joining fee or an audition fee. We do ask that each member contributes £1 per rehearsal, (children 50p) which goes directly into paying for the rent of our rehearsal hall. Free teas, coffees, juice and biscuits are provided for the use of all.

Stepping Out (the play)

Contact: mooney@msusan16.orangehome.co.uk


Audition Dates: 14th September 2014 2pm
Performance Dates: 22nd – 25th April 2015


The Stepping Out auditions will be Sunday 14th September 2pm at Woodford Church annexe. Sue Mooney will be directing and she will issue a character breakdown very shortly so watch this space!
Stepping Out is a lovely, award winning comedy by Richard Harris, and it introduces us to the ever patient dance teacher, Mavis and her eclectic bunch of eight pupils made up of seven ladies and one man. Over a period of several months the play follows the group’s progress along with Mavis and the redoubtable Mrs Fraser on the piano in not only the world of tap dancing classes but in the stories that unfold about each of the very different characters.

Les Miserables film series auditions in Devon

Contact:
Please be aware that we cannot accept auditions or applications via email or video. In order to be considered for a role, you need to attend in person.
*if you cannot make this date, but wish to make an appointment to be auditioned on an alternative date please contact us, the same rules of auditioning will apply*
southdevonplayers@gmail.com

OPEN AUDITIONS 11-6pm SEPT 27TH 2014

A BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF THE PROJECT:
In a nutshell, this is a long term crowdfunded internet film series, to be broadcast on Youtube and Vimeo, (and any other film or video sites chosen!) starting shooting by the end of 2014.
Overall, this is a three year project, with filming taking place for each crowdfunded episode, over a few days, after funding has been raised. During filming days, shoots could be an early start to late finish, and for relevant characters also include night-time shoots. A lot of locations will be in and around Devon and Cornwall in the UK, some locations in France, especially for later episodes, will be looked into as well.
This is a pretty different project, as it is based on Victor Hugo's UNABRIDGED novel (this is not the musical or a single feature film!) and we are remaining as faithful to that unabridged novel as is possible.
Due to the nature of crowdfunding we are hoping to be able to pay our performers, but this depends entirely on funds raised, and may alter episode by episode as the series gets more well known, but at the minimum, once you have been cast as a character in the series, your expenses will be covered.
Depending on what character you wish to audition for, and are cast as you may be required for several episodes (or indeed all of them), or simply one.
HOW TO AUDITION:
During August, our project website (South Devon Players) will be updated with set audition pieces for each character. You will be expected not to necessarily have learned the piece but to have made yourself familiar with it.
There will also be an audition pack in PDF and Word format, which will contain important information, and an application form. You will be asked to bring that, along with a headshot and an up to date performance resume.
At the auditions, you will be asked to perform the piece on video camera, as a screen test. We will be looking at your characterization, focus, and the realism of your portrayal of the character. You will be either auditioning solo, or with one other person, in front of the directors.
When you arrive, you will be directed to a waiting room, and we will call people in to audition in front of our panel. Doors open at 11am, and close at 6pm. The earlier you arrive, the earlier you will be seen, unless you have made a specific appointment.
There are several child roles, but all children MUST be accompanied by a parent or guardian at all times.
Please be aware that we cannot accept auditions or applications via email or video. In order to be considered for a role, you need to attend in person.
THERE IS NO FEE REQUIRED FOR YOU TO AUDITION OR BE INVOLVED IN ANY WAY, THIS IS A GENUINE PROJECT NOT A SCAM.
USEFUL LINKS:
- Read Victor Hugo's unabridged novel online (or get the free ebook) http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/135 (you will probably want to do this if you get in, anyway.
