Monday 8th May at 7.30pm
Performance: September 2017


Sheridan’s play is set in 1775 and follows the romantic difficulties of Lydia who is determined to marry for love, which lead to a wealth of mistaken identities and misunderstandings from some larger than life characters, including the infamous Mrs Malaprop, whose ability to mangle the English language is legendary.

Snow White Satire - Mature Pantomime

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

Rattigan's The Deep Blue Sea - Audition for plum roles this January
Come along and get involved in our exciting production which will be performed at The Mill Studio, Guildford, in June.
Under the direction of Michael Gaunt, former principal of Guildford School of Acting, this will be a superb opportunity to learn from one of the industry's most experienced acting coaches. We'll also have a lot of fun!
Characters are aged from 20s to 40s so there's something for everyone. Rehearsals will be in central Guildford.
Rehearsals: Eight weeks in duration, taking place on weekday evenings – some will require a weekend day. We would need full attendance (allowing, of course, for personal crises).
Additionally: Intensive work over the weekend prior to the first performance is to be expected and the company will be called during the day on Thursday 15 June 2017, when we will also perform in the evening.

The 39 Steps

The 39 Steps



Contact: For audition pieces Click Here

Sunday 15th January at 4pm. The production will take place on 1-3 June 2017.

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.
