Performances: 1st and 2nd July

Ever thought you'd like to murder a member of the clergy? HADS is looking for potential killers for our next production: Who Killed the Vicar? Auditions are being held in the Upstairs Room at The George on April 3rd in the afternoon and early evening.
Could you be the disgruntled Curate? The interfering Housekeeper? The overzealous Scout Leader, The injured Church Organist, the flighty florist? Or perhaps, the murder victim - the very Reverend himself? Or perhaps the investigating Detective Inspector or Bishop's Representative?
The Murder Mystery is being held on July 1st and 2nd in the Deanery Gardens and the audience will be invited to try and find out who the real murderer is - the winning team being awarded the first ever Hadleigh Silver Dagger Award.
The Auditions are open to all-comers, only people joining the cast will have to join HADS (only £10 pa).
We will send you an email with a short script for all the characters. We'd like you to come as the character of your choice and ask you to convince us (whilst in character) that you could be a murderer or the victim or one the investigating duo.
Audition slots will be roughly timed to stop too many people having to hang around all afternoon.
Auditions: 3rd April @ The George

Reserve your place at Theatrical Feast
Banbury Cross Players are pleased to announce Open Auditions for the final show of our 2015/2016 Season – a Theatrical Feast in the form of an evening of three one-act plays. A challenging trio of two-handers to whet your acting appetite, the plays are as follows:
David Tristram’s Peas : Gerry and Daisy are the first to test out a new dating agency and quickly discover how much they have in common - including Star Wars, Chinese food, Wagner and sex.
David Tristram’s The Extraordinary Revelations of Orca the Goldfish : For Henry Smith (actor, business tycoon, comedian, Casanova and acting US President) life was rarely dull. For his housewife, wife, Alice, it was rarely anything else. Until, that is, French waiter, Michel (tall, dark and available) enters. Fantasy blurs into reality, secret passions explode and only Orca the Goldfish knows the truth.
Harold Pinter’s The Dumb Waiter : Hitmen Ben and Gus, wait in a basement room for their next assignment. Ben reads his newspaper. Gus ties his shoelaces. The dialogue progresses to argument. The dumb waiter in the back of the room occasionally delivers food .. and eventually the details of their assignment. But who will be left standing?
You do not have to be a member to audition but will be asked to join if cast. You will need to be available from 10 July 2016 for technical and dress rehearsals prior to performance from 13-16 July 2016.

Touch and Go by Derek Benfield


Audition: Tuesday 12th April – 8pm
Performance: 24th Sept - 1st Oct 2016

The auditions will be director led.
When Brian takes up jogging, his wife Hilary is not surprised. She has often told him he should exercise more after all the business lunches he consumes. But when Brian is ostensibly running around the park, he is in fact spending a couple of hours with his girlfriend Wendy, in his good friend George’s flat. The arrangement works well for some time, for while Brian is visiting Wendy, helpful George knows there is no danger of his own dalliance being discovered. The object of his affection is Brian’s wife, Hilary! It is all plain sailing until George’s wife returns too soon from a business trip to America and puts the cat among the pigeons.
The play takes place in two flats: one belonging to George and Jessica, the other to Brian and Hilary. The stage is in two halves - George and Jessica’s flat being modern, while Brian and Hilary’s is tasteful Victorian. Present day - Spring time.

The Anniversary by Bill Macilwraith


Audition: Tuesday 12th April – 8pm
Performance: 19th - 26th November 2016

The auditions will be director led.
Since Dad thankfully died, Mum has carried on his builders’ business and the profits have increased two hundred and fifty per cent. As Tom, her youngest son says; “We must be the only builders putting up condemned property.” Mum keeps a tight hold on all her three sons, binding them to her with gifts, threats and ruthless exploitation of their weaknesses.
But as the family is unwillingly brought together to celebrate Mum’s wedding anniversary (regardless of deceased Dad), revolt is in the air. One son gathers the courage to tell Mum he is taking his wife and family to Canada; Tom breaks the news of his impending marriage. Mum fights back with every weapon in her formidable armoury, but her long ascendancy is broken at last.
Written in 1968 and set in the living room of Mrs Taggart’s house.

Bazzar and Rummage
by Sue Townsend
Directed by Jonathan Scripps

If you are interested in being involved please email Jonathan at

Auditions 25th April, 7.30pm GKR
Performance: Tuesday 6th - Saturday 10th September

Experienced performer and director Jonathan Scripps, husband of member Sonia Lindsey-Scripps, is directing this production. Jonathan’s directing debut began with the challenging Cold Comfort Farm by Paul Doust in 2009. More recently, he has directed Steel Magnolias and We Happy Few for the Greville Theatre Club. Jonathan is looking forward to working with SDS.
Set in a church hall in Acton, London, this is the funny and moving story of a group of agoraphobic women who, as part of a self-help group, decide to break through their troubled and insular lives for one day at least by bravely staging a bazaar and rummage sale. Hindered by their controlling social worker, Gwenda, each of them starts coming to terms with the outside world and the causes of their illness. Fliss, a trainee social worker, manages to keep them all together and by the time they leave the hall, it is apparent that their agoraphobia is not cured but at least they have made a start.
Sue Townsend, author of the very popular Adrian Mole set of books, has crafted a very entertaining, witty and poignant play of ordinary people striving to overcome all obstacles in an effort to rejoin society. This play contains some adult themes.
Scripts will be available soon.

Pranksters Theatre Company's Guildford Fringe Festival production
"Hello? Hello? Is this God?"

Earl is a regular guy. He's got a job, he's got friends, he isn’t alone. He is, however, lost. Not geographically but spiritually. So when a bizarre business card seems to offer answers, he's going to grab them. But is a phone call really all it takes?
The Boy on the Swing is a dark comedy about corporations, greed and…well God! With snappy dialogue and intriguing plot it's a perfect small show to have fun with over the summer.

“Joe Harbot's kooky comedy combines Kafkaesque bewilderment with the daftness of Douglas Adams.” – Time Out London

Director: Amy Yorston

I'm really happy to be directing for Pranksters again and "I love how quirky this piece is - we're going to have a lot of fun with language and creating the physicality of the characters."

Ladies please don't be put off - the characters of William and Jim would work equally well as females so do come and read!

Earl Hunt – the confused ordinary man (late 20s - late 30s)

Donald Trust and William Hope – the masterminds behind the company, who play a complex version of good cop/ bad cop (30s-60s)

Jim Young – the officious receptionist, great one-liners (20s)

Old Man – a down trodden man who may or may not be God (script says he's 85!)

A Midsummer Night's Dream

Please let Steven know if you will be coming to the workshop or audition by emailing him at

Open Workshop Sunday 6 March 2016, 2:30pm to 5:30pm
Audition Sunday 13 March, 2:30pm to 5:30pm
Performance 1 - 9 July 2016

GST's summer production of A Midsummer Night's Dream will be performed outdoors, in a theatre in a wood – just the setting Shakespeare had in mind! Performance dates are 1–9 July 2016.

It is a show for a family audience, and we want plenty of children as well as adults to be involved, so we are looking to cast an ensemble of actors of all ages (7 to 107) in speaking and non-speaking roles.
With a total cast of around 30, some key roles will be taken by adult actors, and some by younger actors. No firm decisions will be made ahead of the audition about how the parts will be distributed, so come along to try out for characters magical, mechanical and mortal.
We will have a chorus of mischief-making, merry-making, music-making faeries, to be played by children. Some will also have words to speak.
OPEN WORKSHOP on Sunday 6 March
(This was originally scheduled for 28 February - please note the change of date)
This is an opportunity for anyone thinking about auditioning to come along and have a bit of fun working on aspects of the play. It is a chance for Steven Maddocks, the director, to try out some ideas and a chance for actors to get to know him and the GST.
The workshop is not an audition. It will have no bearing on how the play is cast, so don’t worry if you want to audition but are unable to come to the workshop.
AUDITION on Sunday 13 March
The audition will involve some movement, some simple noise making with percussion instruments, some acting Shakespeare (individually and in groups) and some improvisation. No preparation is necessary, although familiarity with the play will be very useful. Scripts and other materials will be provided at the audition.

Rehearsals begin on 19 April and take place on Sunday afternoons, 2.30–5.30. Leading parts will have some rehearsals on a Tuesday or a Thursday evening. From the week beginning 20 June, the full cast will be called on Tuesday evening and Thursday evening (7.30–9.30pm) as well as on Sunday.

We have always been open to new members from any background and we want to encourage people from all sectors of the community to get involved, especially those that are currently underrepresented.

Urinetown - The Musical

Just turn up

Read Through - 1st Feb 2016 8:00pm
Audition Workshop Wednesday 3rd Feb 2016
Auditions 7th & 8th Feb 2016
Performance: Millfield Theatre 15-18th June 2016

What is Urinetown – The Musical? Don’t be put off by the title. It’s twisted, it’s dark, and it’s hilarious!
Winner of three TONY Awards, Urinetown is a tale of greed, corruption, love, and revolution in a time when water is worth its weight in gold.
A musical satire set in a fictional future where a terrible drought has crippled the city. Water is so scarce that the government enforces a ban on all private toilets in an effort to control water. The citizens must now use pay-per-use toilets owned and operated by a corrupt corporation. Those who try to dodge the fee risk being taken away to “Urinetown”, a mysterious place where many have been sent but no one ever returns.
The oppressed masses rise up under the leadership of Bobby Strong, a hero who decides he’s had enough, and plans a revolution to lead them all to freedom! Will they win? The only way to find out is to see Urinetown – The Musical.
Urinetown started a trend of ironic, self-aware, breaking the fourth wall shows that spawned the likes of The Producers and Book of Mormon. Combining social themes that are relevant to today’s climates with an outrageous perspective, wickedly modern wit and the magic of musical theatre the show produces gales of unbridled laughter.
Urinetown is unique, it’s everything a musical should be and somehow more. Its clever lyrics, brilliant script and captivating score were praised for reinvigorating the very notion of what a musical could be. It is hilariously funny and touchingly honest. Providing a fresh perspective on ‘the musical’ it parodies everything from the legal system, capitalism, social irresponsibility, populism, bureaucracy, corporate mismanagement, municipal politics, climate change to musical theatre itself!

We are holding a further audition at The Oakwood Centre at 2pm Sunday 7th February 2016
Characters to be cast:
The smooth talking PR is married to Rosy; whilst he may be able to calm the ruffled feathers of farmer Morgan he soon loses his cool when confronted by Charles and Serena’s provocative niece and finds it difficult to explain his behaviour when discovered alone with the semi-clad Tabby – playing age @ 35-45
The ex-SAS man is married to Serena; the upper-middle class, hunting type couple are completely uninhibited, consumed by their lust for each other and free with their use of bad language - playing age @ 35-45
The obnoxious teenage niece of Serena and Charles, high on drink and drugs, she arrives uninvited to crash the weekend. She loves to provoke and knows how to push Ross’ buttons but also shows a slightly more compassionate side to Keith. Tabby is required to strip to her underwear, which will naturally be chosen to ensure the actress is comfortable and unselfconscious – playing age 17

All cast members (except the farmer) must be comfortable using bad language

Relatively Speaking is one of Alan Ayckbourn's most famous and best loved plays. It was his first West End hit in 1967.
Ginny goes to the house of her older lover in order to end a relationship and retrieve some compromising letters. Matters are complicated when her current partner also turns up and meets the wife of the lover, believing her to be Ginny's mother, leading to misunderstanding and confusion.
Directed by John Chidgey

Gordon is the harassed director of this AmDram group and is desperate to keep the society of four together. Bernard is the stage manager, set builder, electrician and general handyman who gets drawn into playing a part. Margaret is the “diva” of the group and considers herself to be the greatest actress to ever grace the stage. And finally there is Joyce, who acts as secretary/treasurer and who desperately wants Little Grimley Amateur Dramatic Society to do a musical!
GORDON 40s/50s Bustling, loud and harassed
BERNARD 40s/50 Coarse, frank and a grumbler
MARGARET 40s/50s Diva, a cut above!!!
JOYCE 30s/40s Loves to sing but can’t! A worrier, innocent and sensitive
So if you fancy being a Gordon, a Bernard, a Margaret or a Joyce, then come along to the theatre.

Blackmore Players

Jack The Ripper


Auditions will take place from 8pm on Wednesday 17th February 2016
The launch of the show takes place on Weds 3rd Feb at 8pm

Full details of the characters and audition pieces can be found on our website, under auditions.
The play is a musical reconstruction of incidents relating to the East End murders which took place between Friday, August 31st and Friday, November 9th, 1888. A solution of Jack the Ripper's identity is hinted at, but the play is an atmospheric commentary rather than an historical re-enactment, shifting between reality and artificiality, with characters representing "real" people as well as members of the music hall audience and players. It is an essential feature that some characters are called upon to play more than one role. They thus have a life within the Music Hall and also in reality. The Chairman also plays the authoritative roles of Sir Charles Warren, the Magistrate, and the Dock's Foreman, while Montague Druitt is also known as Toynbee and plays the villain in the melodrama, and the magician.

Rough Crossing by Tom Stoppard

If anyone has any questions or wants to see audition pieces, perhaps they could drop me a line at this email address

Auditions – 23/02/16
Performance Dates 14 - 18/06/16
Rough Crossing is a snappy comedy written in 1984 and based on an idea from a much earlier play called the Play at the Castle by Ferenc Molnar.
The story is set in the 1930s; successful playwrights Sandor Turai and Alex Gal, collaborators for twenty years, arrive aboard the luxury transatlantic liner SS Italian Castle, which is about to sail from Cherbourg to New York, where they are to present their latest musical comedy, The Cruise of the Dodo. They are accompanied by their young composer, Adam Adam, a former actor who was forced to end his stage career after contracting a strange speech impediment brought on by the return of his terrifying mother from prison.
The three intend to surprise their stars, the glamorous Eastern European actress Natasha Navratilova and the intellectually-challenged English actor Ivor Fish, with the newest song from the as yet unfinished play. Unfortunately, they accidentally hear Ivor declaring his love for the younger Natasha, his former lover, who appears to respond. This particularly affects Adam, who, although ten years her junior, is Natasha's current love.
The rest of the play sees Turai, Natasha, and Ivor (who is married and terrified of his wife finding out), assisted by the cabin steward and jack-of-all-trades Dvornichek, attempting to convince the suicidal Adam that what he heard was in fact a rehearsal for a new ending written by Ivor. It is actually Turai, staying up all night, who has written this ending, integrating Ivor's and Natasha's words from the previous evening. He does not, however, inform Gal that he has done this, and the second act takes place at a rehearsal for the play, in which the new ending is presented, although it is interrupted by a bad storm and a lifeboat drill which everyone, Dvornichek included, takes to be a real shipwreck. During this, Adam throws himself overboard and is rescued by Dvornichek.
Eventually, Adam is convinced that the whole thing was a rehearsal, reconciled with Natasha, who proposes to him, and cured of his speech impediment. The old play, which Turai realises is awful, is abandoned and replaced with a new play inspired by a script written by the (unseen) ship's captain and summarised by Dvornichek.
Natasha and Adam are to star, Ivor is relegated to a silent supporting role, and the multi-talented Dvornichek takes over at the piano.
The play is filled with Stoppard’s trademark snappy wit, as well as some beautiful physical comedy and some great running gags involving a glass of cognac. The first half of the show takes place split between two cabins side by side, the writers’ cabin and the leading lady’s cabin. The second half is set in a grand salon where the troupe are rehearsing the play despite the ship bucking like a bronco. The play requires 5 actors and 1 actress.
Rehearsals will be starting early April with some table readings, then in earnest later in the month.
Sandor Turai – Male, minimum 30s, though should be in his 40s or 50s really. Smart, sarcastic and witty, Turai is one of the central characters of the piece. He’s supposed to be Hungarian, but the stage directions make it clear that an accent is not a necessity. He sees himself as being the smartest person in the room, and likes to take a lecturing tone with others. He’s the straight man of the comedy duo that is Turai and Gal.
Alex Gal – Male, again minimum 30s but should ideally be 40s or 50s. He’s something of a clown, with a tendency to the over dramatic and a fondness for food (he’s often eating in the play). He’s also supposed to be Hungarian, but again an accent is not essential (and might actually be a hindrance). He plays the comedy foil to Turai’s wit, but he’s not actually as daft as perhaps he appears and gets to undercut Turai with some nice one liners when Turai get’s too full of himself.
Adam Adam – Male, 20s to 30s. The young musical genius is the love interest of the play, and this is a challenging role as he has to be played with a slight speech impediment. He’s described as French and an effective French accent would be a benefit but not essential. Likewise any ability with musical instruments would be helpful, but can be worked around if needs be.
Ivor Fish – Male, 40s to 50s. An over the top thespian lovey, this is a part for someone who is willing to go big with the character. He’s a somewhat ridiculous role with several mood changes – one minute maudalin, the next panicked, the next dripping with sentiment. He’s supposed to be English and a P.G. Woodehouse-esque upper crust accent would be quite fun.
Dvornichek – Male, 20s to 40s. Also called Murphy by several of the characters, this is a real zinger of a role. He plays like a Bottom style idiot one moment, a snappy Falstaff the next. He has a few very long speeches to learn so is not a part for the faint hearted, but done right, he could well steal the show.
Natasha Navratilova – Female, 30s to 40s. The leading lady of the piece, she is supposed to be Eastern European/Russian and an ability to do a convincing accent would be a benefit but again, not essential. She’s cool and aloof much of the time, when not displaying real emotion in her fears that she will lose Adam. She has several brief song excerpts so someone who is confident at singing in public would be a real benefit.
Auditions will then be held at the Oakwood Centre at 7.30pm on Tuesday 23rd February 2016.
The audition pieces will be available in advance, please contact me at to request a copy.

'Troubled Times’ – a World Premiere!

Any queries, please contact Steve Atkins 07788 695840 or

Audition Wednesday 24th February 7.30 for 7.45p.m.
Performance dates 18th to 21th May 2016 (Weds to Sat – evenings) Rehearsals to be agreed, starting possibly end of March, there will be one ‘dress rehearsal’ with the musicians on Tues 17th May.
Troubled Times is something quite different for Woodley Theatre. It came about through contacts made during the ‘Oh Brother, Where Art Thou’ event staged a couple of years ago, and is one man’s history of Ireland from the 1800’s to the present day by Peter Sinclair, told in short scenes augmented by projected images, and interspersed with songs (traditional and original) and live music in the Irish folk style.
The scenes have been adapted by Steve Atkins for storytelling in a simple direct way without props, costumes or scenery, using two male and two female actors and two narrators, and although the subject matter may seem dark at times it is always balanced by Irish wit and humour to make an entertaining evening.
Peter was brought up and schooled in Dublin during the 1950’s and 60’s, so he’s seen and heard a lot of Ireland’s history in person and through the words of his forebears. Troubled Times is a celebration of the Irish journey to the present day that is not to be missed. This will be a charity production in aid of Parkinson’s UK
Parts of both sexes taken by the four actors (2M 2F) include
Irish peasants and wives
English landlord
Irish Estate Manager
English night watchman
English soldiers
Irish emigrant to the US
American kid, her Irish grandfather and her elder brother
Irish youths and young men
Patrick Pearse
James Connelly
Irish wives hanging out washing
English WW1 soldier (posh)
Irish WW1 soldier
Lt Colonel Gerald Smythe RIC
IRA men
Black and Tans
Young men-about-Shankhill Road
Kate and Agnes shopping in Dublin
A young drug pusher
Gang of rival drug pushers
This variety will call for the ability to change and establish a new character, their voice and mannerisms very quickly.
Please note; this show was devised as a rehearsed play-reading, because- as an additional production - the casting, rehearsals and resources needed will have to run alongside the normal 2016 season. If after a few rehearsals the cast all feel able to learn the lines, however, I am more than happy for it to be performed without books.

The South Devon Players

Chestnut Community Centre, 1 - 3 Poplar Close, Brixham, TQ5 0SA

Open Auditions (Film & theatre) for "Mordred" (Brixham)

Please visit our auditions page for an overview of what to expect at our castings.

Sunday Feb 28, 2016, 4.30pm

Mordred is a feature film and theatre production, being directed by Laura Jay, one of our founders.
A gritty, dark tale, Mordred is an Arthurian-era drama, heavily influenced by the earliest legends of Mordred, who is traditionally seen as King Arthur's arch-nemesis, and illegitimate son. In the earlier legends, Mordred is much more of an ambiguous character, and not pure evil, as in modern re-tellings, this film and theatre show tells of the legends, from Mordred's point of view.
This drama is set in the 530s, against the backdrop of the Saxon invasions, heavily influenced by Celtic legends and Druidic traditions, and the earliest tales of Arthur, and his followers. The film will be made across South West England, with as much use as possible of actual Arthurian locations, and ancient sites, in Devon and Cornwall. The theatre shows will be performed in South Devon (as a certainty) and we will also be looking to perform in Cornwall, as well.
Unfortunately we will not be able to accept video submissions. Attendance at auditions must be in person.
The project runs as a profit share production, as per the terms set out on our website.

All named cast will be fully credited on IMDB
Anyone under the age of 16, must be accompanied at all castings, rehearsals and filming/ performances, by a parent or legal guardian.
Most of the ladies will be involved in fight/ battle scenes, fighting alongside the men, especially in the Saxon raids, and at Camlann, and mandatory combat training will take place in Brixham at the community centre for all relevant successful cast. If you have a physical reason that this would not be possible, please email us to discuss first.
As this a theatre show as well as a film, rehearsals for the stage show will take place on Wednesday evenings and / or Sundays afternoons, at Chestnut Community Centre, 1 - 3 Poplar Close, Brixham, TQ5 0SA

Further details here

28th February 2016 at 7.30pm

A modern partly-devised performance based on three original episode scripts from the BBC sitcom Blackadder 2 (the Elizabethan one). TV adaptations are always popular with audiences and the second series of Blackadder is (in our opinion) the funniest, so we expect a sell-out run at The Bull.
We are looking to cast an energetic team of actors who wish to work collaboratively to transform television scripts into an incredible theatrical experience. Rather than casting lookalikes or impersonators, we are seeking versatile performers of any age who are willing to explore the characters and contribute creatively to the end story.
We will use drama games as our starting point and Farce as the basic form, but we anticipate the piece will also be influenced by the Theatre of the Absurd and even Pantomime.
We will individually cast the characters of Edmund, Percy, Baldrick, Queenie, Melchett and Nursie. In addition we need a supporting cast of 6 or more actors to play ALL the other characters, some of whom will feature more heavily than in the original. There is HUGE scope for fun and experimentation with this production.
Auditions take place in small groups where you'll be invited to work together to develop a scene for presentation. The main audition takes place at 7:30pm on Sunday 28th February at St Margaret's Church Hall, or join us for an informal evening of script readings (and wine) on Thursday 11th February at 8pm, venue TBC. (email to register your interest in attending). Please ensure you are familiar with the characters before the audition by ensuring you have watched at least one episode of Series 2 of Blackadder.
Blackadder will be performed at The Bull Theatre in Barnet from Thursday 12th to Saturday 14th May at 7.30pm with a matinee on 14th May at 2pm.

This deceptively simple tale relates the activities of seven English children played by adults on a summer afternoon during World War II. In a woods, a field and a barn, they play, fight, fantasize and swagger. Their aggressions, fears, hostilities and rivalries are a microcosm of adult interaction. Easy going Willie tags along as burly Peter bullies Raymond and is challenged by fair minded Paul. Plain Audrey is overshadowed by Angela's prettiness and wreaks her anger on the boys. All of them gang up on the terrified "Donald Duck" who, abused by his mother and ridiculed by his peers, plays a dangerous game of pyromania with tragic results.
Cast 5 men and 2 women
Performance dates are Wednesday 18th to Saturday 21st of MAY and there will be a MATINEE performance on the 21st.

It Runs in the Family a comedy by Ray Cooney

Steve McCartney
phone: 01702312783 | 07519206223 or email: or Facebook

06 Jan 2016 - 19:30

Our next production will be Ray Cooney’s hilarious farce “It Runs in The Family” Ray is Britain’s foremost farce playwright with long running successes like Run for Your Wife and Out of Order.
Rd. David Mortimore, renowned neurologist, is about to deliver the most important lecture of his life. A knighthood is certainly within reach! When into his hospital sanctuary comes Jane Tate - ex-nurse and ex-girlfriend - with shocking news as to why she departed so hastily 16 years and nine months ago. Not only is Dr. Mortimore, the father of her son Leslie, but the strapping teenager is now in reception baying to see his long lost parent!
Trying to hold both his career and marriage together, there is only one solution for Dr. Mortimore – send for faithful friend Dr. Bonney. What ensues is a dangerous web of expanding lies and manic cover-ups involving a Police Sergeant, Dr. Mortimore’s wife, a severe hospital Matron and Dr. Bonney’s mother.
IT RUNS IN THE FAMILY is farce at its finest, spinning deliriously out of control and tickling the funny bones in traditional Ray Cooney fashion.
Auditions are Wednesday 6th January 2016 at 7.30 p.m. at Clarence Road Baptist Church Hall the director will be looking for your prowess in physical comedy and wanting to see good farce performers. As the group has a good reputation in this area.
There are roles for 7 males, 5 females. This is a very fast paced, crazy comedy with one set. There are wild situations with three males impersonating the Matron in drag. Except for two characters people are constantly coming on and off stage.
Characters (in order of appearance)
Dr. David Mortimore, 45-50 A successful neurologist at an important moment in his career. He is charming and a little pompous, flustered but quick to come up with ideas to cover his ever growing string of lies. He is hoping to become the head of surgery and get knighted as a result of the speech he is about to present. He is onstage for almost the entire play and it is a very physical role. He is Rosemary’s husband, Jane’s former lover and Leslie’s father. He ends up in drag as Matron.
Dr. Mike Connolly, 25. An exuberant, boyish doctor who loves acting and dressing up. Makes an attractive woman in the right dress. He is eager to please but is often frenetic! A great thespian, he is very involved in the hospital’s annual pantomime.
Rosemary Mortimore, 40 David’s attractive wife. She is refined and very outgoing and pleasant. She falls for many of her husband’s lies with concern and compassion. She handles the chaos that erupts around her with typical English resolve.
Dr. Hubert Bonney, 40-46 A doctor and David’s best friend. He is very low key but very likeable. Much to his dismay he finds himself in the middle of David’s lies ultimately having to say he is Leslie’s father. While he may be slow to realize some things, he can be quick to react in song etc. to cover up something. He always gives in to David and is totally afraid of his mother. He ends up in drag as Matron. He has lots of physical comedy.
Matron. 30’s or 40’s Used to giving the orders and having them taken. She is a no nonsense type of woman. She is robust, ample, strict, a rule follower. She can be quite intimidating but changes totally when she thinks Dr. Bonny has romantic intentions. She has lots of physical comedy.
Sir Willowy Drake, 50-60 He is a stern administrator who is a little out of touch with what really goes on in the hospital. Chair of the Board of St. Andrew’s Hospital, London. Very elegant –but ultimately succumbs to the gin in the end!
Jane Tate, 35-40 Very pretty, sexy and cuddly. A former nurse at the hospital who had an affair with David that resulted in her son Leslie. She is a middle class and very protective of her son. She is not a pushover.
Sister, 25-30 She is a very efficient nurse at the hospital. Only appears in Act 1.
Leslie Tate, 15-20 The tough, punk son of Jane and David who is now on an emotional rollercoaster finding out a doctor at the hospital is his father. He is very excitable but persistent. This is a very physical role but he is very sweet and loving when he thinks he has found his father and grandmother.
Police Sergeant, 25-30 He is a practical, down to earth cop who has arrested Leslie. He is revealed to be Mike’s uncle. He is the antagonist trying to get to the bottom of what is going on and haul Leslie off to jail.
Bill, 60 He is a patient at the hospital who gets thrown into the fray as a result of David’s lies. He is eccentric, fun loving and imagines him a swinger. He is confused into thinking the doctor’s lounge is his new hospital room and confuses everyone else. He is in a wheelchair, loves his liquor and women. He always becomes lucid when David is trying to cover something up.
Mother, 60’s Hubert’s mother. She is doting, amiable but strong willed where her son is concerned. She is feisty and becomes surprised that her son got a woman pregnant but is thrilled with her new grandson. She only appears in Act 2.

All welcome and we love to see new faces!

Will Trenting is the central character of this intriguing drama set in the 1950s. He is a popular novelist who writes well researched stories and lives with his wife and teenage son in comfortable accommodation near Regents Park. Albert is Trenting's "right hand man" - valet, secretary and confidante. The publisher of Trenting's novels is Thane Lampeter; a charming, respectable gentleman.
This is a contented, wealthy establishment into which two "friends" from Rotherhithe, the area which Will uses to research his material, come and ultimately disturb the smooth running of this celebrity's household, where family and friends have just learned that their 'hero" has been awarded a knighthood for his contribution to literature.
Naturally this has attracted the praise of his readers, and the press. However, when Trenting's private life is exposed at this time the collision of his two worlds, private and public, demonstrates the double standards society displays as press and previous admirers turn against him. How does he and his family cope?
CAST needed:
Will Trenting - 45 -50 years old. A novelist. Lively and enthusiastic but quite modest, friendly.
Rona Trenting - 40 -45 years old. Will's wife. Pleasant, spontaneous and supportive, she has a good relationship with her husband.

Tel: (01787) 376211 / Mobile: 07976 639787

MONDAY JANUARY 11th 7.30pm

The following gives you an idea of how we’ll be tackling the play and basic character notes to help you in deciding, along with reading the script of course, whether being involved is for you.
The Play
Outside Edge is very much a character based comedy: it doesn’t rely particularly on ‘one liners’ and gags for its humour and neither is it a farce-type comedy
The better and more rounded the characters and how they relate to one another, the funnier and more ‘relevant’ the play will be. To be as entertaining as possible, it needs plenty of verve and this will be a major focus of rehearsals as we look at pacing and establishing and maintaining high energy levels.

The Characters - 5 men & 4 women
The characters undoubtedly have different attitudes to being at the cricket match: they range from thorough absorption in everything relating to the setting up and playing of the game to - variously - weary cynicism, detachment and timidity.

Roger: team captain and overall organiser (although long-suffering wife Miriam does most of the actual work) he lives and breathes all aspects of the match. Everything has to be ‘just so’ (his ‘to do’ list is his match day bible) and he’s only really bothered about the smooth running of the cricket match.

Miriam: Roger’s wife; she does most of the fetching and carrying as well as making the cricket tea. Fusses around and anxious that everyone ‘behaves’ so the cricket runs as smoothly as possible. Nurses a frustration that boils over eventually.
Bob: Married to Ginnie, he gets himself into a mess when absenting himself from the cricket to help his ex-wife with chores on the pretext that Ginnie is ill and he needs to look after her. A good cricketer but less good at running his own life; dislikes artifice hence his contempt for Dennis and especially Alex

Dennis: a social climber with no real class, brags about his new car, his ability to get things cheap (even though he can’t) and is a terrible cricketer. Married to the unseen Shirley but fancies himself as a ladies’ man despite failing miserably in assorted attempts to ingratiate himself.

Kevin: married to Maggie, he’s a good cricketer and in a reversal of stereotyped husband/wife roles he is the expert cook while Maggie possesses the practical DIY abilities. He’s sulky and child-like at times mostly due to Maggie’s fussing over him, and he’s outwardly rude to her but in reality deeply fond of his wife.

Maggie: myopic, wears a big fur coat and stack heels even though it’s a hot summer’s day causing her to lumber around, but she’s not as slow metaphorically as she may appear. More of a DIY and hands-on sort rather than cake making, she dotes on Kevin and does a good line in caustic put-downs.

Ginnie: married to Bob and perpetually annoyed with him for salving his conscience by attending to his ex-wife's domestic requirements. She has a weary cynicism of all things cricket and most of the others involved, and unexpectedly turns up to the match while Bob has told everyone she’s ill.

Alex: young and arrogant lawyer; a very good cricketer with a penchant for dating young and attractive but dim women - the latest being Sharon who he brings along to the match. Doesn’t care about much else other than his batting average and his car - pretty much ignores Sharon until she ultimately lets fly at him.

Sharon: young and pretty, met Alex the night before the match at the local disco. Completely out of her comfort zone in this environment and dresses more like it’s Ladies’ Day at Ascot rather than a humble club cricket match. Spends most of the time trying to access the loo and, when she finally does so, gets locked in.

Character playing range: all except Alex and Sharon can be 30s, 40s or 50s, and the casting will be influenced in part by the right actor ‘partnership’ combinations. Sharon and Alex are obviously younger than the others, so ideally need to look around mid-20s - although early or late 20s at a pinch is also possible.

Scripts are now available for short term loan from The Quay Box Office

Once basic blocking is finished, the bulk of the work will focus on character and building in energy and pace. A lot of ‘silent acting’ will be looked at especially for the second half where many characters spend time not speaking but are onstage for extended periods.

Work on body language and the specific delivery of certain lines for best effect will be experimented with, and most characters have lots of ‘business’ with props etc. For these reasons we’ll need to be books down sooner rather than later to maximise this work so we’ll be ideally off scripts by the end of March or very early April.

Banbury Cross Players announce Open Auditions for their April 2016 production of the classic Agatha Christie thriller – “The Hollow” - on Thursday 14 January 2016, 8pm at The Mill Arts Centre.
Gathered at the home of Sir Henry and Lucy Angkatell are various guests including Dr John Cristow, his mistress, Henrietta, his ex-mistress Veronica, and his wife, Gerda. Veronica wants to marry Cristow but he refuses to divorce Gerda. Veronica declares if she can't have him no-one else will. Within five minutes Cristow is dead. Nearly everyone had motive and opportunity but who actually committed the deed has to be discovered by Inspector Colquhoun and Sergeant Penny.
Re-creating the glamour of the 1930s with an Art Deco inspired set, coupled with the suspense of a sparkling Christie plot, the twists and turns of this play keep the audience guessing to the very end!

Auditions: Friday 15th January @7.30pm or
Sunday 17th January @1pm
Performance: Stantonbury Theatre, Milton Keynes, April 13 to 16 2016

Witness For the Prosecution is a court room drama by the master of mystery - Agatha Christie.
The basic plot involves Leonard Vole, a charming but somewhat feckless young man who, in the face of almost incontrovertible evidence, is accused of murdering a rich old lady he has recently befriended, and the dogged efforts of his legal team to get him off. However, with this being Christie, things are never quite what they seem.

Roald Dahl's The Witches


Sunday 17th January 2016 3pm

Based on the book "The Witches" by Roald Dahl and Adapted for the stage by David Wood

This amateur production of “The Witches” is presented by special arrangement with SAMUEL FRENCH, LTD.

This is a faithful adaptation of Roald Dahl’s classic story in which Boy and his Grandmother defeat the Grand High Witch and her followers, who are holding a Conference in an English seaside hotel. During the struggle, Boy gets turned into a mouse. The Witches are nothing like the ones who wear pointed hats and fly on broomsticks – they look very much like ordinary women, which helps their deception.

The play offers many opportunities for illusions and inventive puppetry. Humour is provided by the vulgar Jenkins family whose son, Bruno, also becomes a mouse..
Auditions will be open to anyone between the ages of 8 & 19 and will take the format of a brief workshop followed by individual readings.
There is a cast of up to 21 roles plus extra witches for some scenes so there will be plenty of scope for a large cast.

We will be running 4 shows, Thursday 5th May, Friday 6th May plus a matinee and an evening show on Saturday 7th May.

Based on Robert Louis Stevenson’s classic thriller, Jekyll & Hyde is the gripping tale of a brilliant mind gone horrifically awry, set to a powerful pop-rock score by Frank Wildhorn with book and lyrics by Leslie Bricusse. In an attempt to cure his ailing father’s mental illness by separating “good” from “evil” in the human personality, talented physician Dr. Jekyll inadvertently creates an alternate personality of pure evil, dubbed Mr. Hyde, who wreaks murderous havoc on the city of London. As his fiancée Emma grows increasingly fearful for her betrothed, a prostitute, Lucy, finds herself dangerously involved with both the doctor and his alter ego. Struggling to control Hyde before he takes over for good, Jekyll must race to find a cure for the demon he has created in his own mind.
