Hamlet

Contact: If you can’t make this date but are interested, please contact the Director, Dave Thompson, d_t_thompson@hotmail.com (4th is a possible alternative in Worcester Park).


Audition: Monday 1st April 2019 8.00pm
Performance: 27th–29th June 2019 at St Mary’s Church, Beddington


In this SADC production of Hamlet, we are stressing the timeless nature of the play, by using contemporary costumes and props, while retaining Shakespeare’s wonderful words and poetry. Our adaptation is just over two hours in length, concentrating on the intense drama within the Danish court of Elsinore. This brings out the introspective elements of the play and highlights the question of Hamlet’s madness. Some doubling-up is likely and some parts traditionally played by men are open to being played by women, including Hamlet.

This will be a 3-night run in the atmospheric setting of St Mary’s Church in Beddington Park from 27th–29th June 2019.

Rehearsals begin at the hall attached to St Mary’s on Thursday 18th April (7.45pm for 8–10) and then on every succeeding Tuesday and Thursday and the first four Sundays of June.

The main scenes used in the audition will be Act III, scene 4 (Hamlet/Gertrude); Act II, scene 2
(Polonius/Claudius/Gertrude); Act IV, scene 5 (Ophelia’s mad scene/Claudius/Laertes); Act V, scene 1 (Gravedigger/Hamlet/Horatio); other scenes/speeches may be requested/required.

Please note – although anyone can audition, you must be a fully paid-up member of SADC to take a part in this production and you will be asked to pay a show subscription. We also ask the cast to sell a significant number of tickets and to assist with set construction, costumes and props as much as possible

Contractions by Mike Bartlett

Read Through: 12th March 2019 7:30pm
AUDITION DATE : 2 April 2019
Lighthorne and Abingdon Festival entry, June 2019 and performed at BCP's Season Preview in September 2019


From the writer of Doctor Foster and King Charles III (and with a history of being a winner!), Contractions is a dystopian play; a powerful, disturbing, chilling drama about work and play in which the audience are invited to a meeting. Come in. Sit down. How are you? Emma's been seeing Darren. She thinks she's in love. Her boss thinks she's in breach of contract.
The play shows there is no place for individualism and privacy in a growing corporate world, and that compliance is the only accepted way forward.
CAST : 2 females - one older, one younger. Rehearsals start 15 April 2019
You do not need to be a member to attend but will be required to join if cast. Details on membership can be found on the BCP website.

Pre-audition reading Mon 7th April 7.30pm
Auditions Sun 12th May 2pm
On tour in west Devon and east Cornwall 9th to 23rd November 2019


The pre-audition reading is recommended but is not a requirement for auditioning. Auditions are open to everyone. Those who are cast will be required to become a member of Tavonians (see website for details).

Tavonians Theatre Company will be presenting Brontë on tour in west Devon and east Cornwall between 9th and 23rd November 2019
There will be a pre-audition reading on Monday 15th April 7.30pm, for those who are interested to read the play, to help you to decide what parts you might want to audtion for - it's not just a fun reading!

Auditions will be on Sunday 12th May 2pm. Audtions are open to everyone, and potential crew as well as cast are invited to come along.
The reading and the auditions will be in The Studio, Kingdon House, Pym Street, Tavistock, PL19 0AW

Some notes from the Director about the roles -
There are six parts in the play.
There will be a pre-audi on reading on Monday 15th April 7.30pm, for those who are interested to read the play, to help you to decide what parts you might want to audition for - it's not just a fun reading!
Charlotte - who also becomes Jane Eyre from time to time.
Emily - who is determined but is o en overruled by Charlotte.
Anne - who is the younger and perhaps most mid of the three.
The ages of these actresses will very much depend on who wishes to play these parts but I need to ensure the credibility of their rela onships. If possible all three ought to have Yorkshire accents.

One actress will play the roles of Mrs Rochester (Bertha) from Jane Eyre, and Cathy from Wuthering Heights. I am flexible on the age of the actor although I think what I have in mind will probably suit the younger person.

There are two male parts, Rev Patrick Brontë, but the actor will need to play three other characters, and Branwell, with the actor again playing two other characters. Rev Brontë ought to have a so Irish accent and ideally Branwell should have a Yorkshire accent.

This will be a physical production and I would like the cast to contribute as much as possible to the way we stage it.

We're still looking for people to audition for some roles, especially the younger adults.
We are holding auditions on Sunday 14th April at Uppermill Methodist Church and still need some younger people to audition for the following roles.
If you're not free on the 14th, then don't worry, other arrangements can be made.

Motel, The Tailor
Age Range: 18 – 30
Vocal Range: Strong Tenor (E3 - F#4)
Acting: Great character role needing someone who can show Motel’s sensitive, nervous but loveable character. Must have good comic timing and the ability to show vulnerability.
Movement: move well
Songs: Miracle of Miracles (solo), Tradition, Anatevka
Motel is the meek and very poor village tailor. He seeks the hand of Tevye’s eldest daughter Tzeitel. He must challenge the tradition of parents choosing a mate and in the process comes into his own by standing up for his feelings for Tzeitel.

Perchik, The Student
Age Range: 18 – 25
Vocal Range: Tenor (B2 – E4)
Acting – Strong acting skills. Actor must show intensity and an unfailing commitment to his radical beliefs. He should be able to hold his own against Tevye as he clashes with him idealistically. He is also likeable, charming and ultimately an accepted part of Tevye’s family.
Movement: move well
Songs: Now I Have Everything (solo), Tradition, Sunrise, Sunset
Perchik is a visitor and outsider to Anatevka. He brings with him radical views that challenge traditions. Perchik and Hodel (Tevye’s second oldest daughter) fall in love and again challenge Tevye’s beliefs.

Fyedka, The Russian Soldier
Age Range: 20 – 30
Mainly speaking role with featured Tenor solo in “To Life” (Soloist could be cast separately)
Acting: Good actor who can use a Russian accent. Gentle with Chava but stands up to Tevye
Movement: Strong dancer preferable. Dances a Russian dance in “To Life”
Fyedka is a Russian soldier who falls in love with Chava, Tevye’s third oldest daughter. He and Chava elope because Tevye cannot accept this total break in Jewish tradition.

Tzeitel, Eldest Daughter
Age Range: 18 – 20
Vocal range: Soprano/Alto (B3 to D5)
Acting: Strong dramatic actor
Movement: move well, part of Chava’s dance sequence
Songs: Matchmaker, Tradition, Anatevka, plus some chorus songs
Tzeitel is the first daughter to challenge tradition. She is madly in love with Motel, The Tailor and in a desperate crying scene persuades her father to let her marry Motel in spite of the fact that Tevye has made her a match with Lazar Wolfe who is old enough to be her father.

Hodel, 2nd Eldest Daughter
Age Range: 16 – 20
Vocal Range: Soprano with strong chest voice (B3 – E5)
Acting: Strong dramatic actor
Movement: move well
Songs: Far From the Home I Love (solo) , Matchmaker, Tradition, Sunrise, Sunset, Now I Have Everything
Hodel becomes involved with Perchik and eventually leaves Anatevka to be with him in Siberia where is imprisoned for his reform activities. She and Perchik defy tradition by not asking permission to wed, only Tevye’s blessing. Hodel sings the haunting solo Far from the Home I Love as she says goodbye to her father at the train station.

Chava, 3rd Eldest Daughter
Age Range: 16 ish
Vocal Range: Soprano/Alto
Acting: Strong dramatic actor
Movement: Ballet and/or Lyrical Modern dance training preferred.
Songs: Matchmaker, Tradition, Sunrise, Sunset, Anatevka
Chava is Tevye’s scholarly, middle daughter who loves reading. She falls in love with the Russian soldier Fyedka and elopes with him. This huge break from tradition breaks her father’s heart and Chava becomes dead to him.

Our Country’s Good and The Merchant of Venice

Contact: If you are unable to make the audition for any reason, please let us know via themerchantofvenice@gardensuburbtheatre.org.uk in advance, in case we can accommodate you at another time or date.


Auditions: Sunday 10th March 2019

This summer the GST will be building on the success of previous years, and running two shows in rep over the summer period in our beautiful Little Wood Open Air Theatre in Hampstead Garden Suburb. - Our Country’s Good by Timberlake Wertenbaker and The Merchant of Venice by William Shakespeare.

Start time for those auditioning for both shows or Our Country’s Good only will be 4 pm. Start time for The Merchant of Venice only will be 7 pm. You are encouraged to audition for both plays to avoid disappointment, and will have the opportunity to state your preference.

Performances: Each will have its own independent cast and shows will be performed on an alternating timetable over 2 and a half weeks with each show having nine performances and the season will run between 4th and 20th July 2019.
If you are unable to make the audition for any reason, please let us know via themerchantofvenice@gardensuburbtheatre.org.uk in advance, in case we can accommodate you at another time or date.

Fancy a backstage role? – We are currently recruiting backstage crew to help with lights, sounds, stage management, props and costume. If you are interested please contact us.

Also please note that although the auditions are open to everyone, if cast, you will be expected to join the GST and become a full paid up member prior to the first rehearsal.

Pre-audition read-through/workshop
All potential auditionees, especially those new to acting, are welcome to attend the pre-audition read-through or workshop for each production. Although this is not compulsory, it will allow you to meet the directors and help you gain familiarity with the play and characters (and reduce the nerves a bit!), which could help your audition. Also it should be a lot of fun!
These will both be held, in a venue near Hampstead Garden Suburb. Please contact us to confirm attendance, and the address will be provided.
The Merchant of Venice (read through of the play) - 7.30 pm, Tuesday 12th February. More information here.
Our Country’s Good (workshop/read through) – 7.30 pm, Tuesday 26th February. More information here.
Our Country’s Good
Directed by Kayne McCutcheon REmail: ourcountrysgood@gardensuburbtheatre.org.uk

The dramatic true story of the first penal colony in Australia, Our Country’s Good tells of hardship and colonialism, told from the contrasting perspectives of guards and convicts so far from home. Watched over by a lone aborigine, Lieutenant Ralph Clark decides to put on a play to impress his superiors using convicts as actors. Seemingly doomed from the beginning and with opinion divided on its potential success, it eventually develops into something much more than was expected, but still something that can’t or won’t change anything in the rigid society they have built. It’s a touching and sometimes laugh-out-loud funny story of another time and place that still resonates, telling a universal tale of how prejudice, luck and circumstance can change the course of lives, and ultimately how little control each individual has.
Timberlake Wertenbaker’s classic will be brought to life by a talented bunch of 10 actors playing 22 parts. It’s going to be a lot of fun to be part of, with almost all the cast playing at least one convict and one guard, so there will be ample opportunity for character, costume and gender swapping.
It’ll be an energetic production, with 9 shows to sink your teeth into, in a fantastic space. If you haven’t done summertime open air theatre before you are in for a treat – if you have then you know already!
Script, audition pieces and characters

The Merchant Of Venice
Directed by Diana Bromley
Email: themerchantofvenice@gardensuburbtheatre.org.uk

Why do we want to put on this play? Why wouldn’t we?! It investigates the universal themes of the difference between the spirit and the letter of the Law and whether Mercy takes precedence over Justice. It is bang up to date with its incisive examination of the corrosive effect of anti-semitism and intolerance of diversity on the victim, as well as on the perpetrator.
Why would you want to be in it? Again, why wouldn’t you? The experienced among you will need no persuasion to rise to the challenge of two of the most marvellous roles with two of the most powerful speeches in Shakespeare. But there are parts for actors of all levels of experience to get their teeth into. If you are afraid of performing Shakespeare, or think you don’t understand the language, well yes, you have to work at it, but we will work together and then the joy of rolling those words around your tongue and perhaps enlightening others in the audience with similar doubts.

Read Through: 12th March 2019 7:30pm
AUDITION DATE : 2 April 2019
Lighthorne and Abingdon Festival entry, June 2019 and performed at BCP's Season Preview in September 2019


From the writer of Doctor Foster and King Charles III (and with a history of being a winner!), Contractions is a dystopian play; a powerful, disturbing, chilling drama about work and play in which the audience are invited to a meeting. Come in. Sit down. How are you? Emma's been seeing Darren. She thinks she's in love. Her boss thinks she's in breach of contract.
The play shows there is no place for individualism and privacy in a growing corporate world, and that compliance is the only accepted way forward.
CAST : 2 females - one older, one younger. Rehearsals start 15 April 2019
You do not need to be a member to attend but will be required to join if cast. Details on membership can be found on the BCP website.

See How They Run

Contact: via our website or social media


Auditions: Thursday 14th March, 7.30pm
Performance: Thursday 20th June - Saturday 22nd June 2019


‘See How They Run', a comedy by Philip King and to be directed by Frank Bye, one of CADS very talented and very well-respected actors.

Even while V1 and V2 rockets were landing on London, Philip King's 'See How They Run' was bringing laughter to the people. A farce using all the elements of mis-understanding, running in and out of doors, vicars with no trousers on, a German POW dressed as a vicar, an unexpected vicar turning up, a Bishop, a drunk church warden and an army sergeant all add to the mix.
The play is set in a quiet Vicarage in a sleepy village. The Reverend Toop lives there with his wife Penelope, who before marrying the Rev was an actress in the West End.
One day the actor who played opposite her in "Private Lives" and is stationed in the next village guarding German POWs pays a visit. While her husband is away for the evening Mrs Toop and her actor friend , Clive, decide to watch a play in the village, but as he is in his army uniform she gives him her husbands spare vicars clothes to wear. The Reverend Toop arrives home later that evening and is robbed of his clothes by a German POW who has escaped from the camp, With the arrival of a Bishop and another vicar who is due to give a sermon the following morning, chaos ensues. Add to the mix a drunk church warden, Miss Skillon, a common maid, and a confused army sergeant you have all the makings of an hilarious farce. The play is as fresh today as it was in 1945.

Reverend Lionel Toop 30/40

Jeeves and Wooster in Perfect Nonsense

Jeeves and Wooster in Perfect Nonsense by The Goodale Brothers - from the works of P.G. Wodehouse
Directed & produced by Malcolm and Lorna Hollister


Contact: via our website or social media


Audition date: Monday 18th March 7.30pm GKR
Production dates: Tuesday 9th - Saturday 13th July


Encouraged by his pals, Bertie has taken over the theatre to try and tell the story of his recent visit to Totleigh Towers. Ideally it would have been a one man show, but no one could play Jeeves like - well - Jeeves himself.

Jeeves has roped in two more “gentlemen’s gentlemen” to people the plot with all the necessary Aunts, Lords, Constables and potential fiancées. Will it make sense? Probably not.

The production offers multiple roles for each actor except for Bertie, who is onstage throughout, but does get served cocktails.

Roles include:
Actor 1
Bertie Wooster:
Actor 2
Jeeves, Proprietor, Madeline Bassett, (also operates dummy as Spode)
Actor 3
Seppings, Aunt Dahlia, Spode, Cabbie, Butterfield, Const. Oates
Actor 4
Uncle Tom, Sir Watkin Bassett, Gussie Fink-Nottle, Stiffy Bing

Scripts are available from the box behind the Quay Bar

Ghosts by Henrik Ibsen

Ghosts by Henrik Ibsen a version by Mike Poulton

Contact: via our website or social media


Read Through: 19th March 2019 7:30pm
AUDITION DATE : 28 March 2019
Performance Dates - 10-13 July 2019


Great drama is more often than not about relationships. Ghosts is a great drama, a classic. It’s about the relationship between Helen Alving and her son Oswald. It’s about the relationship between Regina and her father, Engstrand, and between Helen and Pastor Manders, who have been close acquaintances for a long time. It’s also about all of their relationships with Captain Alving who doesn’t even appear in the play but casts a long shadow over it.
All of these relationships have had actions within them long ago that have consequences. Violence, betrayal, deceit. They create ghosts and those ghosts from the past have a significant impact over all of the characters now.
Ghosts is a powerful, shocking drama, even more so given that fact that it was written in the 1880s. Ibsen is the Godfather of the great Norse dramatic storytelling line that continues today with the modern BBC4 Nordic drama phenomena. Henrik Ibsen’s Ghosts - the original Scandi-noir.
CAST : Pastor Manders Osvald Alving Helen Alving Regina Engstrand Jacob Engstrand

Two one-act comedies - Audience by Michael Frayn and Jeeves and the Song of Songs by P G Wodehouse, adapted by Francis Beckett

Auditions: Sunday 3rd February 2019 5pm
Performances: Thursday 11th to Saturday 13th April at the King Alfred’s Phoenix Theatre, Golders Green, NW11 7HY


Please come to the audition with any dates from Monday 25th February on which you won’t be able to attend rehearsals. You will need to be available every evening from Sunday 7th April.

At 5pm
Audience by Michael Frayn
Directed by Debbie Lane
An audience enters a theatre and start to watch the play. We don’t know what the play is but we do see them do what audiences do: comment on the action, chat to each other, get frustrated with each other, sit in the wrong seats, spot other people they know, fall in love…

It’s important that actors who are cast are able to learn the lines at an early stage in order to achieve the pace the play demands. Don’t feel too limited by the specified ages (apart from the teenagers) as it will be more important that the relationships between the characters are right.

Please email audience@gardensuburbtheatre.org.uk for the script and audition pieces. Note that Audience will be rehearsing on Sunday afternoon and on Monday and Thursday evenings.

Characters
Amanda young woman, attending with
Charles who is somewhat older.
Bobbie American lady in her 50s accompanying
Merrill also American, in his dotage.
Helena 30s or 40s, who has come with
Joan her mother, 60s or 70s.
Quentin 50s who has brought
Lee in his late teens.
Keith 30s to 50s, on his own.
Reginald late 30s to 50s, who has come with
Eileen late 30s to 50s, his wife and
Wendy mid to late teens, their daughter.
Usherette any age, very few lines to say.

At 7pm
Jeeves and the Song of Songs by P G Wodehouse, adapted for the stage by Francis Beckett
Directed by Francis Beckett
Please arrive by 6.30pm if you are auditioning for this production only.

Tuppy Glossop has dropped Bertie Wooster’s cousin Angela to pursue a romance with operatic diva Cora Bellinger. Ordered by his Aunt Dahlia to break up them up, Bertie finds himself called upon, in a plan orchestrated by Jeeves, to sing at a charity concert.

A brand-new adaptation of the P G Wodehouse story.

Francis wants to be as flexible about ages as possible, so ages given are approximate, but Bertie, Tuppy and Beefy will need to be roughly of an age, since they were at university together.

The play is set in the 20s or 30s, so men will be asked to have their hair cut appropriately and shave off all facial hair.

Please email jeeves@gardensuburbtheatre.org.uk for the script and audition pieces, stating what parts you are interested in. Note that Jeeves and the Song of Songs will be rehearsing on Sunday afternoon and on Tuesday and Wednesday evenings.

Characters
Revd “Beefy” Bingham 20s or early 30s, preferably able to play the piano
Mr Cholly, a costermonger any age
Miss Dolly any age
Bertie Wooster 20s or early 30s, must be able to sing
Lady Worplesdon, Bertie’s Aunty Agatha older than 50
Jeeves probably 30s but willing to consider any age
Tuppy Glossop 20s or early 30s, must be able to sing
The Hon Miss Cora Bellinger 20s or 30s
Mrs Travers, Bertie’s Aunt Dahlia older than 50
Angela Travers 20s or 30s.

8th & 15th Feb 2019 7:30pm

Read Through & Auditions
We are delighted to announce our 2019 June production - "Don't Get Your Vicars in a Twist" - a farce of divine proportions by Ann Gawthorper and Lesley Brown with Tim Chalklen making his directorial-debut, assisted by David Bainbridge.
The play is set in 1991 when the first female vicar was ordained - it's a fast- moving farce full of fun, frolics and lots of doors!
Desperate to find the funds to pay for his daughter’s wedding, Church Warden George Williams seizes the opportunity to rent out the vicarage while waiting for a new vicar to be appointed. The booking is to a touring Theatre Company, who are to stage a Murder Mystery weekend in which a female Vicar and a Bishop are among the cast.
Unfortunately for George, a new female Vicar is appointed to the vicarage before the Murder Mystery weekend can take place. George thinks he is still in luck when the new Vicar, Caroline Timberlake announces that she is to visit friends at a college reunion over the weekend. However, events take a turn for the worse when Bishop Herbert rings the vicarage to announce that he is to visit to meet his new vicar. Chaos ensues as the actor playing the Bishop in the Murder Mystery weekend is mistaken by George and fellow Churchwarden Alan, for the real Bishop Herbert and the Bishop himself mistakes the actor playing the Vicar for Caroline. Matters get worse as half of the Theatre Company fails to make an appearance and the remainder spend most of their time either fighting with each other or getting drunk, or both. This is even before we meet the guests!

Please note that the venue for the Read-Through and the Auditions have changed from previously advertised. The Read-Through will take place on Friday 8th February with the Auditions taking place on Friday 15th February, both at 7.30pm at the Iver Scout Hut in the Iver Recreational Ground (SL0 9PW) - parking availaible just off the High Street . The farce will be performed in Iver Village Hall from 5th - 8th June 2019.

This comedy, written in 1975, is timeless, and involves four couples at different stages in their relationship. There are a lot of laughs, with physical and emotional comedy, but the play explores how you cope with living with someone else and the background to the story is cleverly created. Careful acting will be required to get to the core of the character and to fully exploit the physical and emotional comedy.
It is important that we are able to see auditionees working together, so if you are interested in auditioning, please contact the director, Elaine Lloyd PRIOR to the audition evenings and let her know which part you are interested in and whether you are available for 14th or 15th or both evenings.

In the court of Austrian Emperor Joseph II, Antonio Salieri is the established composer. Enter the greatest musical genius of all time: Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. Salieri has given himself to God so that he might realise his sole ambition: to be a great composer. Mozart is a foul-mouthed, graceless oaf who has that which is beyond Salieri's envious grasp: genius.

Road by Jim Cartwright
Directed by Simon Shorrock


Contact: via our website or social media


Launch Night Sunday 6th January 2019 followed by the read-through
Performance: 23-27 April 2019 @7:30


A humorous and poignant play about working-class lives.
Road is the first play written by Jim Cartwright, and was first produced in 1986.
The play explores the lives of the people in a deprived, working class area of Lancashire during the government of Margaret Thatcher, a time of high unemployment in the north of England. Despite its explicit nature, it was considered extremely effective in portraying the desperation of people's lives at this time, as well as containing a great deal of humour. The play won a number of awards and was voted the 36th best play of the 20th century in a poll by the Royal National Theatre. Set on a road on a busy night, the audience delve into the houses on the street and the characters lives.

Contact: via our website or social media


Monday 7th Jan 8pm, followed by open auditions on Monday and Thursday the 14th and 17th January 8pm
Performances are 15th to 18th May 2019


We are reading our Spring production ‘Norman Robbins’ Tiptoe Through the Tombstones, the sequel to A Tomb with a View.
Mortimer Crayle, a crusty old lawyer, and his secretary Zoe, have gathered the last remaining Tomb family members (an offbeat bunch) at Monument House, to inform them about their inheritance. But Crayle has designs on the inheritance which demand the death of all the Tombs. As fog descends on the gloomy mansion, in the cobwebby corridors things are seldom what they seem. With poison in every decanter and mysterious disappearances into secret passageways, host and guests alike join the increasing number of bodies in the cellar.
The play has a cast of 10, 4 male and 6 female as follows:
*****= size of role
Vernon Prewitt
A stereotype homosexual from a 60’s sitcom. Limp wristed and minces for England.
*****
Edna Honeywill
Young, dim-looking woman with frizzy hair and glasses. Dressed in an old-fashioned maid’s outfit that’s far too big for her.
****
Zoe Mapleton
Hard-looking woman, dressed in skirt and blouse – a straight-laced secretary
****
Mortimer Crayle
Older solicitor, wearing a badly-made hairpiece and dressed in a mourning suit that would not look out of place in the 1930’s.
**
Octavia Tomb
Mature woman, aristocratic, deathly pale and misses nothing in her black chiffon. Reminiscent of Widow Twankey.
**
Henrietta Tomb
Heavy tweeds, sensible shoes and a permanent scowl
****
Augustus Tomb
Pompous mature man wearing a monocle, Norfolk jacket and knickerbockers with a loud booming voice.
**
Athene Tomb
Fluttery and highly strung, a few years older than Augustus
*****
Larry Lewis
Younger children’s entertainer, dressed as a clown
******
Fabia Tomb
Busty blonde, encrusted in diamonds, tottering around in extra-high heeled shoes.

Open Auditions for our Spring 2019 Play

An amateur drama group is rehearsing in a theatre at the end of a pier. A storm is building up and any thought of leaving the theatre is baulked by finding that somehow all the exit doors are locked from the outside. A ghostly presence flits across the stage and when the assistant stage manager falls to certain death through a trapdoor, the players begin to flap. Then one of the actresses is found poisoned, and it becomes clear that a murderer is in their midst . . .

READ THROUGH/AUDITIONS
About the show:
Mix a Hitchcock masterpiece with a juicy spy novel, add a dash of Monty Python and you have the intriguing, thrilling, riotous and unmissable comedy. This award winning comedy, written by Patrick Barlow, follows a notorious fugitive and a spellbound blonde from a London music hall north by northwest to Scotland’s most remote highlands. Will they save Britain from a den of devious spies? A small cast of actors plays over 150 characters in this fast-paced tale of an ordinary man on an extraordinarily entertaining adventure. The 39 Steps contains every legendary scene from the award-winning Hitchcock film — including the chase on the Flying Scotsman, the escape on the Forth Bridge, the bi-plane crash and the sensational (almost) death-defying finale in the London Palladium.

The Bible The Complete Word of God by Adam Long, Reed Martin, Austin Tichenor

Contact: via our website or social media


Auditions: 15 Jan 2019 & 17 Jan 2019 7:45pm
Dates of the show are April 30th to May 4th 2019
Rehearsals are Monday, Wednesday evenings and Sunday afternoons. Rehearsals at CTW will start 10th March, however, we hope to have line run rehearsals start before this at alternative venues so that theatre rehearsals can concentrate on the physicality of the play.


in the beginning , there was chaos, but why stop there? The Good Book now gets even better.
In this affectionately, irreverent rollercoaster ride, three performers tackle the great theological questions, like , did Adam and Eve have navels? Did Moses really look like Charlton Heston? And why isn’t the word “phonetic “ spelled the way it sounds?”
There are parts for three actors, male or female, no age range, no particular accent, totally open to anyone, you don’t even need to be a member to come along and audition. All the roles are large ones and you will be onstage for the whole of the play.
It is an energetic play with multiple quick fire costume changes, dances, magic tricks so you will need to be fit and agile! Each actor plays themselves or a version of themselves and also plays multiple characters. Ideally we would like at least one person to be a musician, able to play keyboard or guitar, but we can always have a fourth person just to play keyboard, so if you fancy being onstage but only want to play and sing, then come along.
The directors, Sally and Keith are asking that you come along prepared to sing a comic song of your choice, we don’t need the best singers in the world, just people who can hold a tune, and keep time to the music, so don’t let that put you off!
We will have the usual reading of scenes, however, the crux of the audition will be one scene which you will have time to read beforehand and then we will ask you , in threes to improvise that scene however you wish ( hence holding auditions in the auditorium so you have plenty of space to move around in )
If you’d like to see that scene before the auditions, please contact either Sally or Keith and we can get you a copy of the scene, but we are looking for people able to think on their feet and come up with creative ideas as the rehearsals will be based around improvisation, so it won’t matter if you aren’t able to see the script beforehand, or if you decide on the night to just turn up.
This is a mad cap, brilliantly funny play, with magic tricks, audience participation and the chance to portray a cast of thousands. We look forward to seeing you. Please contact either of the directors via email or Facebook if you have any questions. We look forward to seeing you.

Audition Dates: Wed 23rd January 2019 – Evening
Production Dates: 24th - 27th April 2019 - 8pm performances plus 2pm Saturday Matinee


The Brookside Theatre Company are casting for their upcoming production of Sondheim's ASSASSINS
A multiple Tony Award-winning theatrical tour-de-force, Assassins combines Sondheim's signature blend of intelligently stunning lyrics and beautiful music with a panoramic story of our nation's culture of celebrity and the violent means some will use to obtain it, embodied by America's four successful and five would-be presidential assassins. Bold, original, disturbing and alarmingly funny, Assassins is perhaps the most controversial musical ever written.
Assassins lays bare the lives of nine individuals who assassinated or tried to assassinate the President of the United States, in a one-act historical "revusical" that explores the dark side of the American experience. From John Wilkes Booth to Lee Harvey Oswald, writers, Stephen Sondheim and John Weidman, bend the rules of time and space, taking us on a nightmarish roller coaster ride in which assassins and would-be assassins from different historical periods meet, interact and inspire each other to harrowing acts in the name of the American Dream.
All rehearsals will take place at the theatre in Romford (5 mins walk from Romford Station - 20 mins from Liverpool Street). Rehearsals will be on Monday & Wednesday evenings and Sunday daytimes from mid February by a rehearsal schedule.
A full show / audition information pack is available.
Please note that this is an unpaid production as all Brookside Theatre Company productions support the Romford War Memorial Charity (Reg. charity no. 206748)

Chiswick’s Longest Running Drama Group

Celebrates their 70th Anniversary this year with spectacular outdoor production

This June the longest running musical of the 1950s, ‘Salad Days’, steps out into the open air as St Michael’s Players celebrates their 70th Anniversary. The show follows a young couple fresh from university, seeking to find their place in life and work. They encounter a colourful array of characters, including a mysterious tramp who loans them a magical piano which, when played, makes anyone in the vicinity spontaneously dance! Further exploits ensue in an Egyptian themed nightclub and aboard a flying saucer. All the while the dour Minister of Pleasures and Pastimes seeks to put an end to all this gleeful enjoyment. This fun, frivolous musical will fill you with the joys of youth.

If you would like to be a part of this fabulous show please contact Fleur de Henrie Pearce (Producer) for information on audition pieces and character breakdowns stmichaelsplayerschiswickw4@gmail.com
As part of the audition you will be asked to perform a pre-prepared song from the show, an excerpt from the script (based on the character you are auditioning for) and a short fun dance number which you will learn on the day.
Don’t miss out on being a part of our 70th Anniversary spectacular!
