The Matchmaker by Thornton Wilder

The Matchmaker by Thornton Wilder

Contact: anitajones7@ntlworld.comvia our website or social media


Auditions: Monday 2nd September 2019 - 7.30 pm
Wednesday 4th September 2019 - 7.30 pm
Show dates 11-14 December 2019


The Matchmaker has a large cast of 16+, ranging from walk-on waiters to the towering roles of Dolly and Horace. It will be great fun to rehearse and provide a wonderful pre-Christmas treat for audiences.
The play is a wonderful American farce in which tin cans explode, people hide in wardrobes and behind screens, identities are mistaken, and there are no fewer than four romances. In 1955 the play was an international success, and was turned into the musical Hello Dolly in 1964.
It tells the story of wealthy merchant, Horace Vandergelder, who employs the services of a matchmaker, Dolly Levi, to find him a wife. Dolly has designs on Horace herself. Irascible and tight fisted, despite his fortune, Vandergelder has two overworked clerks, Cornelius and Barnaby. His niece, Ermengarde wants to marry Ambrose, a penniless artist, of whom he strongly disapproves.
Vandergelder is planning a trip to New York to court a widowed milliner, Mrs Irene Malloy. Cornelius and Barnaby, encouraged by Dolly, take advantage of the fact that their employer will be absent from the store to go on their own adventure – which takes them to exactly the same place. She has also advised Ermengarde to go to New York to elope with Ambrose, thus setting the scene for some classic farce in Mrs Malloy’s hat shop and the Harmonia Gardens Restaurant.
The final act introduces the wonderfully bonkers Miss Van Huysen when all the characters meet in her apartment: all the complications are resolved and Horace reveals he has a heart after all.

”Talking Heads” monologues:

Lesley, in her late 20’s or early 30’s is an aspiring, and somewhat naive actress who is hopeful of hitting the big time.

• A Chip in the Sugar (about 30 mins)
Graham is a middle-aged man who lives with, and looks after his mother. He is closer to her than perhaps he would admit and resists anything which might affect the status quo.

• A Lady of Letters (about 26 mins)
Irene Ruddock, Miss, is an ordinary middle-aged and rather lonely woman who is not slow to put pen to paper when she feels she should register her disapproval .

One act play (about 32 mins):
• Say Something Happened.
Somewhere in the north of England, Mam and Dad, a couple in their sixties, comfortable with their life and routine, and working, as such couples do, as a team.
June Potter, a young woman from the Social Services Dept., tasked with assessing the couples’ vulnerability.

You do not need to have anything prepared for the auditions.

The Thrill of Love

The Thrill of Love by Amanda Whittington

Contact: If you have any questions, please get in touch contactus@banburycrossplayers.org.uk


There is a read through on Tuesday 10 September 2019 at The Mill Arts Centre, Banbury, 7.30pm.
Auditions follow on 17 and 19 September 2019
Performances: 20 -23 Nov 2019


The Thrill of Love is a stylish, devised piece of theatre, exploring the events that led up to the last execution of a woman in Britain - Ruth Ellis. Amanda Whittington's acclaimed play is set in the mid 1950s. Despite the story specifically surrounding one woman, it is definitely an ensemble piece.
Ruth Ellis is a young divorcee with a young child to care for. She works in the kind of nightclub where there’s more than just a drink on offer. The girls work hard, play hard and dream of a movie-star life. Ruth meets the wealthy, womanising David, a racing driver with whom she becomes obsessed. Fame comes – but not in the way she imagined.
Ruth’s story raises many questions. Why does Ruth and David’s relationship end in murder? Why does she plead not guilty but offer no defence? Why does she show no remorse? Who is she trying to protect?
Cast as follows:
Ruth Ellis - nightclub hostess (25-35)
Jack Gale - Detective Inspector (40s)
Sylvia Shaw - nightclub manageress (40s)
Vickie Martin - model and actress (20s-30s)
Doris Judd – charwoman (20s-30s)

We will be using the language of Film Noir – white flashbulbs between scenes in a random six-gunshot rhythm – denoting the publicity surrounding the murder and the number of gunshots fired at David. All characters will be dressed in black, white and grey, except for an injection of colour to punctuate specific moments. Think Schindler’s List. Music is all about Billie Holiday as she is referenced multiple times throughout the play.
You do not need to be a member to attend the read through or audition but will need to join if cast or involved backstage. Details on Membership options can be found on the BCP website and in the BCP Brochure. A printed version is available from The Mill Arts Centre. A downloadable version is available on the BCP website.

If cast, you will need to be available from 17 November for Technical and Dress rehearsals.

The Father by Florian Zellar

The Father by Florian Zellar

Read-Through: Wednesday, 25 September 2019 from 19:30-21:30

“The Father” by Florian Zeller, directed by Gareth Frow is “A controlled, unforgettable portrait of losing your memory” with a cast of 3 men and 3 women.

March Production

SYNOPSIS
Andre is a man facing persecution from all sides, and he refuses to take it any longer. First some girl, a “helper” -- whom he doesn’t need at all -- steals his favorite watch. Then his daughter Anne, a scheming woman who worries too much, tries to take his flat away -- the beautiful flat he’s had for over thirty years, in which he is still quite capable of living, thank you very much! His daughter Elise, the one he actually loves… where is she? She never comes to visit. Anne’s husband -- or lover -- Pierre, with whom she is moving to London -- or staying in Paris -- threatens Andre with violence if he will not cooperate, and to top it off, strangers keep entering Andre’s flat, telling him that they are his friends and family, telling him that he doesn’t live in his flat anymore. However aged he may be, Andre knows that he is a powerful man, a man of authority, and he will find some way to assert it. After all, he still has all his faculties…. Doesn’t he? In a darkly humorous and deeply poignant translation by Christopher Hampton, Florian Zeller’s The Father is a tragi-comic mystery, a sobering and realistic family story, and an unsentimental, emotionally intense look at the world through the eyes of a man experiencing dementia, a dramatic illustration of the physical losses which occur along with the mental ones.

Grow Up

Contact: anitafarrer@mac.com


Wednesday 25th Sept from 09:00am - 2:00pm

Urgent child actors needed

Hello,

I am in my final year of college doing a film production course. I wrote a 10 minute short script called "Grow Up", that won a distinction from the college, it is now been chosen to go into production. We are in the early stages and we have a small crew, but we are looking for two talented young actors from around 7-12 (to play a younger sister and an older brother) to star as our main characters.

The story is set in a small semi-detached house in Worcester and focuses on the dynamic of the siblings and their newly divorced father. It is a serious, coming of age drama that explores dark themes of emotional abuse and how the younger sister, Leela, has to quickly mature to try support her targeted older brother, Adi.

We are still deciding exact dates for production, as we want it to also fit around when the actors will be free. We are thinking about shooting around the October half term over 4-5 days.

If you know any enthusiastic students who would be confident in front of a camera, can learn scripts quick and is up for working with a young film crew, it would be highly appreciated by us all.

Transport will be paid for, as well as food and refreshments. We are on a tight budget but a fee will be paid per actor, but we hope the process of working in front of cameras and being able to experience working with a film crew, will give them a different perspective of what it takes to be an actor.
We have had very little luck finding the right kids who can be comfortable in front of the cameras.
Hopefully someone would be able to help me and my crew or advise me where we could contact other performing schools / local drama groups. We know it’s very short notice , but this is the world of college film course... every deadline has a deadline :)

We are aware it’s during school time but the crew is also available to FaceTime the kids after school hours.

If the parents can email me anitafarrer@mac.com with their replies as soon as , then we can schedule the kids professionally with time slots.

SYNOPSIS:
Lorca’s seminal play was completed barely two months before he was assassinated in a fascist uprising, leading to the Spanish Civil War in 1936. The play has endured, with many productions finding the relationship between the domineering Bernarda Alba and her daughters fertile ground for bringing forward difficult truths centred around repression and the danger of an unremitting patriarchal influence on personal liberty and choice. As a gay man, Lorca was mercilessly persecuted with regard to his own sexuality. This play, part of his “rural trilogy”, preceded by Blood Wedding and Yerma, poses unrelenting questions about how, even in death, men exert their influence on women and society.

Translation by Jo Clifford.

A vicious battle of wills between four Sixth Form girls in the hour before a new Head Girl is announced. As the girls vie for the coveted position, old friendships and loyalties give way to ambition and betrayal. Nothing is too extreme in a battle which increasingly proves less about the disputed role and more about how the girls’ conflicting ideologies of class, privilege and morality will affect the rest of their lives.

Julius Caesar is Shakespeare’s first great tragedy. It is a play about politics in which the demands of honour, patriotism and friendship are brought into conflict; it is as relevant today as when it was written 420 years ago.
The honourable Brutus must decide whether to join the conspiracy against his friend Julius Caesar. As the political tension escalates, Brutus’ defence of the conspirators is countered by Mark Antony and Rome slides into civil conflict, with Brutus and Cassius on one side and Antony and Octavius Caesar on the other.

Contact: Kirsty Van Den Bulk kjvdbulk@gmail.com


Auditions at the Corn Exchange Wallingford on Sunday 2nd of June, 2019 at 2pm, Tuesday 4th of June at 7.30pm, with recalls on Sunday 9th of June at 2pm.
Show 16th - 19th (inclusive) of October 2019


The Sinodun Players’ October 2019 production will be BLOOD WEDDING, the classic Spanish folk tragedy by Federico Garcia Lorca. The director is Kirsty Van Den Bulk and the cast will be well mixed for age and gender, numbering in all about 20. Ability to move, dance and/or sing is an advantage.

CHARACTERS:
• Leonardo Felix - Volcanic type, impulsive, moody, unhappy
• The Bridegroom - Easy going, a good son, becoming prosperous
• The Bride - Of independent mind, but knows she has no agency
• The Groom’s Mother - judgmental, fearful, seeks to control her son
• The Bride’s Father - Practical, hardworking, traditional views
• The Neighbor
• The Bride’s maid
• Leonardo’s Wife
• Leonardo’s Mother In Law
• The Moon
• The Crone
• Woodcutters
• Spinners
• Wedding guests

THE STORY, on a basic level, tells the true story of a passionate man who cannot let go of his first love, despite the fact that he is now married with a child, and she is on the cusp of marriage to another. Given the entrenched and unforgiving conditions of turn of the century rural Spain, there can be no other outcome but tragedy, and Lorca reveals it to us in true Greek style.
Lorca was a leading member of a group known as the Generation of ‘27, a group of mostly poets who introduced Symbolism, Futurism and Surrealism to Spain. He was also a fervent activist for the Socialists in the Spanish Civil War, for which he was murdered by the Fascists, though Lorca’s sexuality is also believed to have been a factor in his death. His body was buried by his murderers and has never been found.
The play was written, we are told, in a frenzied few days in 1932, and was inspired by a newspaper cutting telling of a runaway bride and a murder in which the murdered and the murderer were cousins. The themes (ties) of family, blood and the soil are central to Lorca’s vision and they are powerfully portrayed in Blood Wedding.

All auditions Sunday 2nd June 11am Aduts & Children 12 years +
Intro evenings 29th & 31st May
Performances: 18th - 21st September 2019


Anne of Green Gables is a funny and warming play.
Brother and Sister, Matthew and Marilla Cuthbert, decide to adopt a boy in order to help on their farm (Green Gables). They send word to a Nova Scotia orphanage via Mr Spencer who is also going to get a girl he wishes to adopt. After a misunderstanding he brings them Anne, a red haired, imaginative girl with a rather feisty temperament.
Matthew takes a shine to Anne almost straight away and convinces Marilla to take her as an ‘experiment’.
Although there are several mishaps; such as Anne breaking a slate over Gilbert Blythe’s head because he calls her ‘Carrots’, Anne turning her hair green and also intoxicating Diana with Currant wine, Anne soon wins a place in both their hearts.

Come along to the introduction evenings to find out more.
Great parts for Adults and Children (age 12+)
Could you be the feisty red head herself? Or one of her school friends such as her best friend Diana or one of the boys from her class such as the intelligent and charming Gilbert Blythe.
,br>For the adults there are great parts such as Matthew Cuthbert who is shy and scared of women, the stern but gentle Marilla and Rachel Lynde who is the town gossip.

There are also several smaller roles so something to suit everyone.

In this ever-popular comedy, a quartet of mismatched lovers, a company of hapless actors and malicious sprites cross paths with the King and Queen of the fairies, entangled in their own domestic dispute. Audiences will be transported to a tainted supernatural forest overflowing with possibilities where the unexplainable magic of falling in love – and the marvel of waking up from the sweetest of dreams – is discovered.
Chaos, confusion, trickery and skullduggery reign in this fresh, joyful, accessible and memorable interpretation of the Shakespeare’s most loved comedy. The beautiful setting of Cannizaro Park will once again provide us with a stunning backdrop for this year’s open-air performances, continuing Mayhem’s popular summer tradition of bringing the Bard to South London.

Stage Door by Edna Ferber & George S. Kaufman

Stage Door by Edna Ferber & George S. Kaufman
Directed by Aidan Steer


Contact: drama@southsideplayers.co.uk or via our website or social media


Audition Dates: Sunday 9 June
Performance Dates: Wed 23 to Sat 26 October 2019


Set in the mid-1930s, this witty comedy concerns a group of women who have come to New York City to find work as actors and performers. The play is set in The Footlights Club – a boarding house run by ex-actress Mrs Orcutt.
The Broadway life is all here: the desperate round of auditions and agents; the sudden closing of a show that should have been a meal ticket for months; the opportunistic romances and the emotional breakdowns.
Stage Door has a large cast with a wide range of roles: aspiring actresses – some more talented and dedicated than others; young and not-so-young ‘gentlemen callers’; a movie magnate and an idealistic young playwright who sells out to Hollywood. So there will be opportunities for both members and non members.

Auditions: Sunday 9th June 2019
Performances: 23rd - 26th October 2019 at The Adrian Mann Theatre


In Autumn 2019 we are getting back into the habit with our production of Sister Act!
Based on the hit 1992 film that has audiences jumping to their feet, Sister Act features original music by Tony and 8-time Oscar winner Alan Menken (Newsies, Beauty And The Beast, Little Shop Of Horrors) and was nominated for 5 Tony Awards including Best Musical.
When disco diva Deloris Van Cartier witnesses a murder, she is put in protective custody in one place the cops are sure she won’t be found: a convent! Disguised as a nun, she finds herself at odds with both the rigid lifestyle and uptight Mother Superior. Using her unique disco moves and singing talent to inspire the choir, Deloris breathes new life into the church and community but in doing so, blows her cover. Soon, the gang is giving chase only to find them up against Deloris and the power of her newly found sisterhood.
Come along to our opening meeting on the 21st May 8:00pm to learn more about this fantastic show, meet the production team and pick up audition pieces!

Terror is a tense courtroom drama in which the audience become the jury and decide the outcome of the trial they've just witnessed:

Evidence is presented and arguments made, while the audience act as the jury and decide if the fighter pilot is guilty or not guilty. The play has two possible endings depending on the audiences’ conclusion.

They love the way we make them feel but not ‘us’ They love dreams
Alice, Dan, Larry and Anna meet, fall in love, betray each other, fall out of love and…more… These fours lives intertwine in a stinging tale of love, deception, obsession, anger and devastation. This is modern love.
There’s a moment. There’s always a moment…before we fall in love. When we can resist. When we can say No. But we don’t always resist. Strangers become lovers and lovers become strangers.
Closer by Patrick Marber is a brutal modern love story. It explores the nature of our romantic relationships, the nature of truth and of betrayal. Why do we act in the way we do toward the people we claim to love?
Please note that this play contains swearing and smoking. It may not be suitable for under-18s.

Love, blue hair, Celine Dion, bad jokes, poetry, major life changes.….
Set in a farmhouse on the edge of Salisbury Plain, Visitors centres on Edie and Arthur, childhood sweethearts who have been happily married for 50 years. As Edie's memory starts to fail and Arthur has the occasional fall they have to face the fact that they can't carry on living as they were. Kate, a young graduate, still looking for her direction in life, comes to help out and their middle-aged son Stephen drops in to find a refuge from his own difficulties. The play is a hymn to the beauty of life-long love: it is tender, poignant, funny, sharp, sad and heart warming.

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.

The Dedham Players announce open auditions for PRESSURE by David Haig. Auditions will be held at 8pm 13th May, 2019 at The Dedham Assembly Rooms, Dedham.
PRESSURE takes place during the period of 2nd June 1944 to 6th June 1944 and tells the true story of the final preparations for D Day originally scheduled for 5th June.

The Dedham Players were one of the first amatuer groups to be granted the rights to perform this play following the successful UK tour and West End run which ended in late 2018.
What better way to commemorate the 75th Anniversary of the D-Day Landings than by being a part of this show and bringing this momentous story to life on the Dedham stage?

In this ever-popular comedy, a quartet of mismatched lovers, a company of hapless actors and malicious sprites cross paths with the King and Queen of the fairies, entangled in their own domestic dispute. Audiences will be transported to a tainted supernatural forest overflowing with possibilities where the unexplainable magic of falling in love – and the marvel of waking up from the sweetest of dreams – is discovered.
Chaos, confusion, trickery and skullduggery reign in this fresh, joyful, accessible and memorable interpretation of the Shakespeare’s most loved comedy. The beautiful setting of Cannizaro Park will once again provide us with a stunning backdrop for this year’s open-air performances, continuing Mayhem’s popular summer tradition of bringing the Bard to South London.

Auditions: Sunday 9th June 2019
Performances: 23rd - 26th October 2019 at The Adrian Mann Theatre


In Autumn 2019 we are getting back into the habit with our production of Sister Act!
Based on the hit 1992 film that has audiences jumping to their feet, Sister Act features original music by Tony and 8-time Oscar winner Alan Menken (Newsies, Beauty And The Beast, Little Shop Of Horrors) and was nominated for 5 Tony Awards including Best Musical.
When disco diva Deloris Van Cartier witnesses a murder, she is put in protective custody in one place the cops are sure she won’t be found: a convent! Disguised as a nun, she finds herself at odds with both the rigid lifestyle and uptight Mother Superior. Using her unique disco moves and singing talent to inspire the choir, Deloris breathes new life into the church and community but in doing so, blows her cover. Soon, the gang is giving chase only to find them up against Deloris and the power of her newly found sisterhood.
Come along to our opening meeting on the 21st May 8:00pm to learn more about this fantastic show, meet the production team and pick up audition pieces!

Bug by Tracy Letts

Contact: parrico@outlook.com


AUDITION DATE: 26th May @14.45
PRODUCTION WEEK: 3rd to 9th November 2019


DIRECTOR: Will Parrick
REHEARSALS: To be agreed
ROLES AND AUDITION NOTES: See below and available at www.headgatetheatre.co.uk/pdf/bug_audition_notes_2.pdf

This is a rare chance to be involved in an unusual modern psychological thriller which I suspect is not often performed. The cast is small – five in total. Tracy Letts won the Pulitzer prize in 2008 for August – Osage County, and Bug was made into a film in 2006.
Set in 1996, Oklahoma City, the whole play takes place in one seedy motel room. The story revolves around the meeting of Agnes, a divorced, out-of-luck waitress and Peter, a Gulf War veteran turned drifter with a questionable past who is more than likely AWOL.
For Agnes, it is just another evening after work spent hanging around, smoking crack. She is worrying about the imminent release of her abusive ex-husband Jerry from prison. Her friend R.C. visits, and brings with her an acquaintance, Peter. Whilst R.C. chooses to go out clubbing, Peter decided stay with Agnes. Thus begins a relationship which quickly spirals into self-destructive paranoia. Not even the appearance of Jerry or the mysterious Dr Sweet can pull Peter and Agnes apart. Oh, yes, and then there’s the bug infestation...
The play ticks all the “adult theme” boxes including bad language, drug-abuse, sex and violence.
List of characters:
Agnes: A washed up cocktail waitress in her early 40s.
Peter: A softly spoken man in his late 20’s. Ex-military, with a murky past.
R.C.: Agnes’ female best friend (age could vary but would likely be cast similar to Agnes). A lesbian who enjoys clubbing & partying.
Jerry: Agnes’ abusive nasty redneck ex-husband who has recently been released from prison. Similar age to Agnes or older.
Dr Sweet: A mysterious, faceless “official” who makes an appearance towards the end of the play.
Performance will be at the Headgate w/c Sunday 3rd November 2019 (You will need to keep the whole week free for tech/dress then Performances Wed – Sat evening). We DO NOT expect to do a matinee.
Rehearsals two a week (days to be confirmed) beginning in early/mid-August depending on availability.
Auditions will consist of a little warm-up followed by reading/blocking of extracts of the play. No preparation is necessary, but it’s probably a good idea to read the play first – know what you might be getting in to. A loan copy is available from the Headgate Theatre – email dawn66king@gmail.com / phone 01206 250357 to borrow.

Scripts will be supplied to those successful at audition. A performance fee of £10 will be payable.
If you have any queries, or if you can’t make it for whatever reason but still want to be involved, please email me: parrico@outlook.com

All auditions Sunday 2nd June 11am Aduts & Children 12 years +
Intro evenings 29th & 31st May
Performances: 18th - 21st September 2019


Anne of Green Gables is a funny and warming play.
Brother and Sister, Matthew and Marilla Cuthbert, decide to adopt a boy in order to help on their farm (Green Gables). They send word to a Nova Scotia orphanage via Mr Spencer who is also going to get a girl he wishes to adopt. After a misunderstanding he brings them Anne, a red haired, imaginative girl with a rather feisty temperament.
Matthew takes a shine to Anne almost straight away and convinces Marilla to take her as an ‘experiment’.
Although there are several mishaps; such as Anne breaking a slate over Gilbert Blythe’s head because he calls her ‘Carrots’, Anne turning her hair green and also intoxicating Diana with Currant wine, Anne soon wins a place in both their hearts.

Come along to the introduction evenings to find out more.
Great parts for Adults and Children (age 12+)
Could you be the feisty red head herself? Or one of her school friends such as her best friend Diana or one of the boys from her class such as the intelligent and charming Gilbert Blythe.
,br>For the adults there are great parts such as Matthew Cuthbert who is shy and scared of women, the stern but gentle Marilla and Rachel Lynde who is the town gossip.

There are also several smaller roles so something to suit everyone.

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

Contact: via our website or social media


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.

Audition: Sunday 14th April
Performance: Tuesday 29th October to Saturday 2nd November at Saddleworth School


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!

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.

Performance dates for The Merchant of Venice will be Thursday, 4th July, Saturday 6th July (matinee and evening) , Wednesday, 10th July, Friday, 12th July , Sunday, 14 July (matinee), Tuesday, 16th July, Thursday, 18th July and Saturday, 20th July (matinee).

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
Penelope Toop his wife 25/30

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

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

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.

PRODUCTION WEEK: 14th to 20th July 2019


Open Auditions: Bedroom Farce by Alan Ayckbourn
DIRECTOR: Elaine Lloyd
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.

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.
