Murdered to Death



Auditions on Wednesday 12th July 7:30pm
Performance: Weds 22nd November to Saturday 25th November


This play can best be described as a spoof Agatha Christie: it has all the ingredients for a traditional ‘Who Dunnit’ but with a tongue-in-cheek approach. We have the stock situation and characters –set in the 1930s, a group of guests are invited for a weekend at the house of Mildred Bagshot, where she lives with her downtrodden companion Dorothy and her sinister butler Bunting. Her guests are Colonel Craddock, with his stiff upper lip and bossy wife Margaret; Pierre Monceau ,the shady Frenchart dealer, and his glamorous socialite companion Elizabeth Hartley-Trumpington. Add to these a local character called Miss Maple (sound familiar?), the local Constable Thompkins and his bumbling superior Inspector Pratt and we have a hilarious mix of missed clues, red herrings and ridiculous misunderstandings.
CADS last performed this play in 2005 with great success and have since followed it up with two further ‘Inspector Pratt’ plays, all equally hilarious. So we thought it was time to give the original play another airing. Hope you will come along and audition!

BCP are delighted to announce OPEN AUDITIONS for their 2017/2018 Season Opening production of Alan Ayckbourn’s Season’s Greetings.

This black, often farcical comedy, follows a dysfunctional family for a period of four days over the Christmas festivities. Petty (and not so petty) squabbles abound. Christmas presents are rifled. Mechanical toys are set off. Hilarious highlights include a drunken game of snakes and ladders, a chaotically incompetent puppet show and a midnight love scene!

There is ample opportunity for actors to create and develop good characterisations and stereotypical traits.

Roles available:
Neville - easy going, runs his own business (30s-40s)
Belinda - Neville’s attractive wife (30s-40s)
Phyllis - Neville’s (usually slightly drunk!) sister (40s-50s)
Harvey - Neville’s uncle, retired security worker, military background (60s-70s)
Bernard - married to Phyllis, ineffectual doctor, little sense of humour (40s-50s)
Rachel - Belinda’s older sister, anxious, unconventional in dress
Eddie - Neville’s friend, less successful in business, lazy (30s-40s)
Pattie - married to Eddie, heavily pregnant (30s-40s)
Clive - writer, shy, Rachel’s boyfriend (30s-40s)

Auditions 24th July at 8pm
Performance: 19th – 21st October 2017


Cast: 8
Setting: a swish Mayfair penthouse apartment c. 1930

Two arrogant Oxford University students Brandon and Granillo, strangle their friend
Kentley to death with a rope for no apparent reason other than to show they can get away with murder. They place their victim’s body in a chest in the living room. This is then covered over with a cloth and used as a table from which refreshments for a cocktail party are served later that evening. The party guests include Kentley’s parent, relative, romantic partner and also the murderers’ mentor, Rupert Cadell. Brandon’s sense of intellectual superiority swells to reckless levels throughout the evening, making a tense cat & mouse game as Rupert inches ever closer to discovering exactly why Kentley hasn’t shown up for the party.
With the exception of Rupert Cadell who needs to be a middle- aged male, and Leila Arden who is a youthful looking woman, completely open to gender of the other cast members, including the murderers themselves. It is all about getting the mix and the weird chemistry right.
Age guides are deliberately vague – whatever you can get away with on stage!

Matthew Newberry (Chairman) 01256 765538


Open Auditions start on Monday 24 July - all welcome.
Performance: 20 and 21 October 2017


There are 5 male roles and 4 female roles, plus one male "walk on" part. We are also looking for people to help with backstage roles.
Synopsis
Set in the ballroom of the dilapidated Swan Hotel, a group of local members of the Pendon community are brought together to organise a town pageant based on a lost piece of local history, the massacre of the Pendon Twelve - where the Earl of Dorset crushed an uprising of rebellious workers, led by John Cockle. The committee comprises disparate characters with very different views of what the pageant should be and what it represents.
As the meetings progress, the group becomes ideologically divided with the left-wing side, led by a Marxist Polytechnic teacher, building it up as a political rally. The right-wing side of the committee formulating plans for a violent confrontation in response.
The day of the pageant eventually comes with the two sides firmly entrenched and reflecting the sides of the original event. The pageant ends in chaos, having broadly recreating the original event, leaving no-one better off.

POWER is a play full of wit and humour, scheming for money and power, and sexual conquests, set in France at the court of the young King Louis XIV between 1661 and 1664. When the all-powerful Mazarin dies, Louis decides to take the reins of power to reshape France and become an absolute monarch. The court, however, is much happier with a king who pursues his mistresses and does not interfere with State finances. Rivalries & temptations abound. Power premiered at the National in 2003.

NICK DEAR is one of Britain’s leading playwrights, having written and adapted many plays for tv and the National Theatre, including Frankenstein (directed by Danny Boyle for the National in 2011).

CHARACTERS (ages are as given in the play, but we are prepared to be very flexible in casting):

ANNE (60) Anne of Austria, widow of the late king Louis XIII and mother of Louis and Philippe. A strong and domineering Queen Mother.

LOUIS (22) A pleasure-loving youth at the start of the play, Louis swiftly asserts his authority and emerges as domineering, wise and pitiless visionary. He places himself above all others so that France may flourish and he may be glorified. A supreme dancer and seducer.

PHILIPPE (21) Anne’s flamboyant younger son whom she has brought up to be no ‘threat’ to Louis. His interests centre on dressing up, courtly etiquette and handsome young men, but he has also proved himself an outstanding commander on the battlefield.

HENRIETTE (25) Married to Philippe, Henriette is too lively and vivacious to be side-lined by her husband – and too attractive not to be noticed by Louis.

LOUISE (16) Shy, compliant and genuine, Louise joins the court as a Maid of Honour and soon gets tasked with providing a ‘cover’ for Louis’ sexual adventures.

FOUQUET (45) Nicolas Fouquet - the central role of the play. Following Mazarin’s death, he is the richest man in France with a strong lust for life and all the pleasures it has to offer. He sees himself as unassailable and Louis as a boy he can outwit and impress. A great flatterer, seducer and supporter of all the arts – he cannot help showing off.

COLBERT (41) Jean-Baptiste Colbert, Controller of Finance, was Mazarin’s right-hand man (or woman – this role may be cast either way). Apparently diligent and ‘mole-like’ he has secretly amassed a vast personal fortune and seeks to bring down Fouquet.

Non-Speaking: MALE SERVANT understudy & stagehand FEMALE SERVANT under study & stagehand.

Auditions 27th July
Performance: 8th – 10th March 2018


Set in a home for retired opera singers. The play starts with Cecily, Reggie, and Wilfred,starting to make plans to celebrate Verdi’s birthday with a concert, a concert in which they do every year on -10th October.
They are also awaiting the arrival of a new Resident, and are curious to know what there new housemate will be like.Also a film with Maggie Smith, The play is funny, moving, and poignant, and looks deeply into the lives of these fascinating characters whilst also dealing with the trials and tribulations of getting old.

Characters.
Cecily (Cissy) Robinson:—A large woman, and often very excitable- especially at the arrival of a new Resident – she loves her opera and often sits listening to music on her head phones totally entranced mouthing the words.
Reginald (Reggie) Paget— He is a slim fit immaculate man, and always where’s a collar and tie.
Wilfred (Will) Bond.—He uses a walking stick, and is a big man, not only in size but in everything he does. He is also very untidy in his appearance; he simply neglects the way he looks.
Jean Horton—was married to Reggie. Not an easy lady to get on with, very much a diva and out to make life as difficult as possible.

Even though the characters are all over 70. I will be casting it younger as we all know make up is a good tool, as well as convincing acting which I know will not be a problem with the players.
I hope to see as many as possible at the reading and audition. This is a great play with the opportunity for strong character acting.

Performance Dates: 19th Sept – 30th Sept (11 shows)


Based on the hit Peter O'Toole film of the same name, My Favorite Year is an uproarious comedy with the soul of vaudeville and old Hollywood, and features a lush Ahrens and Flaherty score, featuring the musical theatre favourite Larger Than Life. Synopsis: It's 1954, and Benjy Stone, writers' assistant on TV's King Kaiser Comedy Cavalcade, is assigned the daunting task of chaperoning veteran Hollywood swashbuckler Alan Swann. Swann is in town making a live guest appearance, and as a result of his antics Benjy’s career is on the line. As Benjy develops an unlikely alliance with Swann, we encounter stage fright, payback, a reconciliation, a love story, and a climactic battle for freedom, beauty, truth and the future of variety television.

The Rise and Fall Of Little Voice



Contact: via website or social media


Auditions Tues 6th June 7.30pm

All the audition pieces are below, please feel free to download and print them. I would suggest you study them carefully, maybe go on YouTube; there should be clips from the 1998 film called “Little Voice”. There are differences of course but for those auditionees who have not had the good fortune to see or read the play it will serve as a good indicator.
The play is set in a Northern Town so all the characters need to speak with an accent, but don’t get hung up over it… a good generic Northern Accent will suffice!
As regards the role of Little Voice, or LV as she is consistently referred to, you will be required to sing at the audition and impersonate, to the best of your ability:-
Shirley Bassey – Hey Big Spender
Marilyn Monroe – I Wanna be Loved by You
Gracie Fields – Sing as We Go
Edith Piaf – No Regrets (Non, Je Ne Regrette Rien) …so practice your French!!
Judy Garland – Get Happy
You will find an MP3 of each song on our website which you can download for rehearsal purposes, and again, why not go on YouTube and watch the original artists perform, get to understand their mannerisms etc.
Matthew Jefferey will be at the Piano and will offer all the help you need.
I look forward to seeing you all.
Jeremy Smith (Director)
You can listen to the MP3 files here

THE SHAKESPEARE REVUE

THE SHAKESPEARE REVUE



Contact: via website or social media


Auditions Tues 21st June 7.30pm

The Shakespeare Revue is a light hearted look at Shakespeare, his life and work. It is a collection of comic sketches, poems and songs inspired by the Bard, put together in the style of a 1950s revue; it includes material by Alan Bennett, Noel Coward, Cole Porter, Dillie Keane, Fry and Laurie, Victoria Wood and many others. The material is in a variety of styles ranging from classic music hall to ‘high drama’.
The casting is fairly flexible requiring a minimum of 5 (2F, 3M), but the show will easily accommodate up to 10. There are no ‘characters’ to audition for but there are certain qualities that would be useful –
* The ability to sing – some singers are required so this would be helpful but not everyone in the cast has to sing as there are plenty of spoken pieces
* the willingness to have a go at something different
* the willingness to make a fool of oneself
Audition – 21 June 2017
Production dates – 9-14 October 2017RRehearsals – Monday’s and Wednesdays from August

ONE MAN, TWO GUVNORS by Richard Bean, Directed by Ian Amos.



Contact: If you cannot attend but are interested in auditioning/being considered please email Ian Amos : ianamos50@gmail.com


Auditions: Mon 26th June at 7:45pm
Performance Dates are Wed 25th to Sat 28th October at 7:45pm


Cast: 6 Men and 3 women
Synopsis:
A fast-paced physical comedy with lots of run-around slapstick humour, closely based on Goldoni’s ‘The Servant of Two Masters’ (which some of you may remember Dedham performing as the open air production in 2002). Bean sets the play in Brighton in April 1963, among criminals both local and those hitting the seaside from London. The acting style will be quite stylised, a little exaggerated. At least 6 men and 3 women. Possibility of additional cast for cameo roles.
Cast List:
FRANCIS -30 – 50 Gets by doing a bit of this and a bit of that. A little thick but wordly wise – the typical ‘fool’. Lots of physical humour. Very much the lead role. He pulls off being the servant to two masters – among many others things….craving food – and then craving love.
RACHEL 30+ Strong. Moral. She dresses as her dead brother (Roscoe Crabbe) for most of the play. In love with Stanley. The other master. 2nd lead.
STANLEY - 30+ A bit of a hooray Henry – in love with Rachel. Killed her brother accidently and on the run – to Brighton. One of the two masters.
DOLLY - 30 – 50. Charlie’s loyal bookkeeper. Brassy. Quite up on the new feminism which is coming in. But needs a man – and that sometimes wins.
LLOYD - 40+ Minor criminal, admired by all, loyal. Learnt most things – good and bad – in Parkhurst it would seem. Including being a great cook which led him to run the pub that the two masters stay at. This part is written to be played by a West Indian – but it will probably be necessary to tweak it.
CHARLIE 50+ The head of the family. Minor Mafia. Hard-nosed, not be to be crossed, cares a lot about his daughter.
PAULINE 25+ Charlie’s daughter. In love with Alan. Not bright. Straight-forward and good natured. Promised to Roscoe Crabbe as a ‘deal’ but as the play starts she is getting engaged to Alan as Roscoe is dead – only to be confronted by the dead Roscoe (Rachel). Distraught at finding her marriage of convenience is back on.
ALAN - 25+ Wants to be an actor – and acts like one! Madly in love with Pauline. Lives life as though it is a play and not real at all.
HARRY- 50+ Alan’s father. Posh, eccentric. Slightly corrupt solicitor to Charlie.
ALFIE - 70+ possibly a double with Harry. Comical old man waiter. Slow walking and shaking. Lots of fun had with his newly fitted pace maker.
GARETH 40+ Another waiter. Possibly a double with Alan .
Lots of cameo parts – couple at seaside, vicar, two policemen, old lady, taxi driver etc that may be filled by doubling or using additional cast members.

Snow White Satire - Mature Pantomime - Audition



Contact: For full details and to apply click here


Deadline for application submission: Midday Tuesday 9th May 2017
Rehearsal dates to be confirmed. Performance dates between October and December 2017


Actors Wanted for Snow White Satire - Mature Pantomime
A unique adaptation of the classic fairytale, strictly for adults and not for the easily offended. A 17-strong cast is sought for shows beginning in October 2017 (dates to be confirmed). There will be no compensation for the first few shows. However, the aim is to perform between 8 and 10 shows between October and December 2017 at village halls in the Shropshire area, to trial the reception, before taking the performance to major venues throughout 2018. Once in major venues, performances will be paid work.
We are just starting out in this business but are extremely passionate about entertaining audiences, particularly with laughter. The writer of the production is an experienced writer, who has published several novels. His interest lies in comedy, meaning the show will be great fun to be a part of! On completion of a successful tour, further works will be written (a second already has been) and it would be preferable to develop good working relationships with reliable actors/actresses/stage hands, so that they can be called upon in the future. We're friendly people and we want to find success for us and for you, whilst enjoying ourselves along the way.

Run For Your Wife



Contact: We look forward to seeing you there!


Read through on 28th Feb, 7.30pm
Auditions following on 1st March, 7.30pm
Performance: Weds 14th June - Sat 17th June 2017


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

Main Characters:

Granny Weatherwax (40+) – a formidable, strong character and unofficial leader of the witches coven that she claims she doesn’t have.

Nanny Ogg – (60+) – Larger than life witch, quite crude and down to earth.

Magrat Garlick – (early 20’s) – New witch to the coven. New age-y and innocent.

Duke Felmet – (30+) Cousin of the late Verence. Nagged into the murder by his wife. Gets progressively madder as the play goes on, as he tries to wash away the blood on his hands that only he can see.

The Duchess – (30+) – Strong and wilful. Enjoys the iron rule of the Kingdom.

The Fool – (20’s) – Love interest for Magrat. Very intelligent despite the bells. Hates being a fool, but the job has been handed down over the generations.

Glorious! by Peter Quilter

Glorious! by Peter Quilter



Contact: If you require further details please email John Roberts jperoberts@btinternet.com – otherwise I look forward to seeing you at the read through!


Read through – Monday March 20th 2017 at 7.30 pm
Auditions – Wednesday March 22nd 2017 at 7.30 pm
Performance Week – Tuesday 13th June to Saturday 17th June 2017
Rehearsals will commence on Monday March 27th and will mainly take place on Monday and Wednesday evenings from 7.30pm


SYNOPSIS:
Hilarious comedy about the worst singer in the world. In 1940s New York, the performer who everyone wanted to see live was Florence Foster Jenkins, an enthusiastic soprano whose pitch was far from perfect. Known as 'the first lady of the sliding scale', she warbled and screeched her way through the evening to an audience who mostly fell about with laughter. But this delusional and joyously happy woman paid little attention to her critics - instead she was surrounded by a circle of devoted friends who were almost as eccentric as she was. Based upon a true story, the play spins from Florence's charity recitals and extravagant balls, through to her bizarre recording sessions and an ultimate triumph at Carnegie Hall in this hilarious and heart-warming comedy.

CAST
Florence Foster Jenkins – Playing Age – 55 to 75
She is a singer - a bad singer - one of the worst ever (but she just doesn't realise). We need either someone who sings, who will then learn to sing badly or someone who does not sing and who can just fight for the notes - it works either way! The most important attribute is to have a keen sense of comedy and find a way of making Florence sing in the terrible way that made her so infamous. On stage most of the time this will be a demanding but wonderful part to play – lots of dressing up and lots of fun!

St Clair – Playing Age – 55 to 75
Florence’s actor boyfriend - a larger than life character seemingly devoted to Florence who protects her from the outside world, very English, much the failed Shakespearian actor - a lover of life, food and wine (and probably other women!) – another great character to play.

Cosme McMoon – Playing age 30 to 45
Florence’s pianist – Very arch, knowing and amusing – lots of witty lines and a very important character in the play – it would be great if you can play the piano but this is not essential and acting ability trumps piano playing – a good range of horrified expressions will be an asset!

Dorothy – Playing age – 55 to 75
Florence’s friend and intimate – yet another very amusing eccentric character with plenty to do and lots of comic lines and scenarios – needs to be good at handling stuffed dogs!

Maria – Playing age – 30 to 50
Florence and St. Clair’s Mexican cook/housemaid – usually loud and cross! - this role is entirely in Spanish - a part to make your own – no end to the potential laughs that will accompany your every appearance on stage!

Mrs. Verrinder – Playing age – 40 to 60
Florence’s nemesis – someone who tells Florence what a terrible singer she is to her face – a cameo role but very important to the action of the play – lots of vigour and expression needed!

Workshops: Thu 2nd & Sun 5th Feb
Auditions: Thu 9th & Sun 12th Feb


THE AUDITION PROCESS
The process will include both workshop and audition elements. Thursday sessions will run from 7pm-9pm (approx), Sunday sessions will run from 3pm-5pm (approx).

THE WORKSHOPS
The workshops will be a great chance for performers to get to know ‘Happy Days, A New Musical’ and the team behind it. On the workshop dates, performers will be given a crash course of various elements of the show - from acting & reading, to singing & dance.

You’ll get the chance to work with our Director, Musical Director & Choreographer to develop your performance abilities, and get coaching on the pieces we’ll be using for the audition process, and in the show itself. You’ll also have the chance to take a look around our rehearsal & performance space, and get a feel for how we work and what we do.

Though not compulsory, the workshops will be a fun, energetic and exciting way to get to know the show, the production's creative team, and find your feet with the characters before having to deliver an audition, so we'd love to see you there!

Both workshops will be run in a similar fashion, so if you can only make one of the dates that’s no problem. However, if you want to join us for both we’d be more than happy to see you and help you develop further. Please wear clothing that you can move easily in, plus bring a drink!

THE AUDITIONS
The audition process will be your chance to shine & show us what you can do! Auditions are for anybody aged 11+, and we’d love to see people from various age groups, backgrounds & abilities, to make the whole production experience as enjoyable as possible.

Upon arrival, performers will be asked to fill out a simple form with contact details and previous experience, plus preferred roles. You’ll then be introduced to some of the team behind DO Theatre Productions & the casting panel.

Auditions will consist of both singing & acting elements. We’ll ask that you prepare pieces for both parts that come from Happy Days, A New Musical, and will post details of these online after our first Workshop. To help you remain at ease during what can be a nerve-wracking process, auditions will consist heavily of group working & workshopping.

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

If you would like to audition but can’t make these dates, please e-mail or call/text to arrange a mutually acceptable date and time. Please do this sooner rather than later as there is a youth production the following week, so the more notice I have the better. I would like to start rehearsals w/c Mon 6th March – rehearsal days to be confirmed. ,br>My contact details are E: julesdoe@btinternet.com ; T: 07986128278; FB: Julie Thompson-Doe


Audition Dates: Tues 7th, Tues 14th, Thurs 16th February
Production Dates: Charity Reviews (already sold): Tues 13th and Weds 14th June.
Run: Thurs 15th – Sat 24th


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

Please email the director, Gabi Maddocks, publicity@gardensuburbtheatre.org.uk if you want any more information or a copy of the script for reading.

Audition Sunday 26 February, 6.30pm
Neighbourhood Watch will be performed at The Bull Theatre in Barnet from 11-13 May


Bluebell Hill Development is a wonderful place to live, until an innocent mistake leads to the residents taking extreme measures to protect themselves.
In this play, highly topical given recent political events, Ayckbourn suggests that the biggest threat to the neighbourhood is not the danger that lies outside it but the fear that spreads within it. With some blissful comic moments, love at first sight, affairs, medieval torture devices and gnomes, there really is something for everyone.

Neighbourhood Watch is GST's entry in the Barnet and District Drama Festival.
Roles:
• Martin: 40s – unprepossessing but with inner fire
• Hilda: his sister, a little older – dotes on her brother, crafty
• Rod: 60s – retired security guard with a chip on his shoulder
• Dorothy: 60s – curtain twitcher
• Gareth: 50s – redundant engineer who keeps busy in his garden shed
• Amy: his wife, 30s – sleeps with everyone except her husband
• Luther: 30s – angry Guardian reader
• Magda: his wife, 20s – music teacher with a secret

Performance: Weds 14th June - Sat 17th June 2017


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

Sat 7th at 2pm & Sun 8th at 7.45pm

We are looking for a cast of 2M, 3F. See casting breakdown below...
Bella Manningham (playing age 30-40) A major leading role. Needs to be able to convincingly portray someone on the edge of mental collapse.
Jack Manningham (playing age 40s) Suave, persuasive psychopath. A consummate ‘performer’ he uses a combination of bullying, charm and manipulation to control his wife. Think Rob Titchiner in ‘The Archers’.
Inspector Rough (playing age 60s) Genial, charming, kindly ‘rough diamond’. A retired Police officer who can jump into action and use force when the situation requires it. The lynchpin of the play when he is on stage.
Elizabeth (playing age 50+) The Manningham’s housekeeper. A part which plays better than it reads. She is kind, practical and loyal to her mistress, but also able to play her master at his own game when necessary. A good supporting role for a mature actress.
Nancy (Playing age – around 20) – Spirited, pretty, ambitious housemaid, who uses her sexual allure to get what she wants.

The 39 Steps was originally written by John Buchan as an early spy novel. It was later adapted into a film by Alfred Hitchcock and it is probably this version that most people are familiar with. The adaptation by Patrick Barlow has spent a long and successful run in the West End followed by a national tour. It was a critical success and in essence, it takes the film version and it’s 200+ characters and condenses it onto a stage with just four actors. Think reduced Shakespeare Company.
I think it is both a very funny piece whilst at the same time, being a real challenge for the actors involved. Done well, it should have the audience in fits of laughter. It requires good movement, excellent timing and strong characterisation.
