Sunday 30th September between 6pm-9pm in the KCL Strand Campus, room SDR and on Monday 1st and 7th October between 10am-1pm in KCL Strand Campus, room SWB18

Lovesick Prince Hilarion was married to his dearest wife Princess Ida before either of them had reached their third birthday, and the so-called couple haven't met since. Now Hilarion's twenty-two and desperate to be reunited with his mysterious bride, but Ida has greater ambitions: she's founded a women's university, and she's not giving it up for the sake of some mouldy old marriage contract. As Ida vows to renounce romance for academia and Hilarion struggles to convince her otherwise, their future kingdoms descend into chaos, until there's a lot more than just principles at stake...
Named Roles
Ida - idealistic founder of Castle Adamant, the women's university
Psyche - Ida's sardonic deputy, the Professor of Humanities
Blanche - Ida's scheming Professor of Abstract Science
Melissa - Blanche's daughter, a disaffected Adamant student
Sacharissa - smug Senior Student, and tormentor of Melissa
Chloe - a shy student with a dangerous secret
Ada - another student, Sacharissa's infatuated acolyte
Queen Hildebrande - warrior-queen of the neighbouring kingdom
Hilarion - her adorable son
Cyril - Hilarion's reckless friend
Florian - Hilarion's pedantic friend
King Gama - Ida's misanthropic father
Arac - Ida's flamboyant warrior-brother
Guron - Ida's dim-witted warrior-brother
Scynthius - Ida's perpetually frightened warrior-brother
(We will be casting female actors as Ida and Hildebrande, but all other casting will be gender-blind)

Welcome meeting on 2nd October at 7pm
Principal role auditions on the 12th and 13th of October
Performance: 17th - 23rd February 2019, Annex Theatre Southampton


Would you like to be involved in an early medieval take on Gilbert & Sullivan’s “Princess Ida”? To become a Saxon or Viking?
Then why not come along to LOpSoc’s welcome meeting on 2nd October at 7pm, in Building 34, room 4013! Our chorus is un-auditioned and everyone is welcome!
We will be auditioning for principal roles on the 12th and 13th of October, the week after our welcome meeting.

For the first time in nine years LOpSoc is bringing Gilbert and Sullivan's eighth operetta to the Annex Theatre! To recapture the begrudging tolerance and cooperation of the two neighbouring kingdoms described in the original libretto we've set our production in an Early Medieval England. The Hildebrands are the rulers of of a Anglo-Saxon kingdom and Gama is the Jarl of a local Viking settlement seeking to increase his legitimacy and influence by marrying his daughter into the royal line. Ida's women's university becomes Fort Adamant, a new invention better understood by the more liberal Viking community but ultimately unacceptable to the Anglo-Saxons. LOpSoc is starting the year with another fresh re-imagining of a classic Savoy opera!
Prince Hilarion, heir to an Anglo-Saxon kingdom, was betrothed to Ida, daughter of the Jarl presiding over a local Viking settlement, when they were infants. The two have been separated ever since. Our story unfolds as Hilarion and the court of his father, King Hildebrand, await the arrival of Ida and her family for the long awaited marriage, only to find Ida has disappeared! Jarl Gama and his family explain that Ida has forsworn all men and founded a Women's University. As tensions rise between the two rulers Hilarion proposes he travels to Fort Adamant to remind Ida of her betrothal. Disguised as students at the fort the Prince and his friends, Cyril and Florian, begin their mission to woo Ida into accepting the marriage. But as more and more of the student body discover their true identities, chaos ensues within the university. And beyond the walls, King Hildebrand is amassing an army with the promise to aid his son by any means necessary...

Absolutely.

You certainly can. Peter Pan is out of copyright (though we will be paying royalties to Great Ormond Street Hospital; Barrie specified that all productions of the play must do this in perpetuity). So you can read it here, online at Project Gutenburg gutenberg.net.au/ebooks03/0300081h.html

The Price fuses real events with fictional characters to present a striking picture of the impact on people's lives when an intellectual exercise becomes a society-changing reality.

Male - 30s, academic, self-styled rebel, lead role

PERFORMANCE DATES: 15th/16th Feb, 22nd/23rd Feb, 1st/2nd March
REHEARSAL DATES: Mon/Thu eves from 26 Nov, excluding 17 Dec through 31 Dec


OPEN AUDITION CALL for our TOURING SHOW
Festival Players is holding open auditions for its upcoming project ‘Someone In The Crowd’. This will be a touring concert of songs from shows and films, visiting venues in and around the Cambridge area during February and March 2019.Our theme for the 2019 tour is ‘Someone in the Crowd – songs of hope, dreams and aspirations’. We’d like our songs to explore the themes of identity – wanting to fit in, wanting to stand out, wanting to find your place in this world.
We’re going to group the songs into four distinct scenes, each of which we believe offers plenty of scope for these themes to be explored. We’re aiming for the songs to flow naturally from one to another, perhaps with the occasional line of dialogue to help that flow.
Our four ‘scenes’ will be: The Commute, The Audition, College Days, and The Restaurant.
Everyone will be on stage in each scene as commuters, auditionees, students and patrons in each case, becoming involved in specific songs as necessary.

Sunday 2nd September 2018 7.30pm
Performances: Thursday 22nd - Sunday 25th November at Upstairs at the Gatehouse, Highgate Village, N6 4BD


This play is originally 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.
This production will slightly update the show while retaining the essence of Coward's humour and moral dilemmas. Age ranges for characters are just guides – most actors look far younger than chronology suggests as theatre is such a youth-enhancing habit.
Potential cast members should be prepared to eat cake (the director likes to bake), cuddle a small dog (Sally the Sausage dog) and have their tongue firmly in their cheek.

CHARACTERS:
Judith Bliss - Female, Late 40s to 60s: Married to David Bliss, mother to Sorel and Simon, Judith is an actress who has recently retired from the stage but still continues to perform constantly off stage. During the course of the play, she takes on the demeanour of the rural lady of the manor, the long-suffering mother, the glamorous star, the flirtatious coquette, the betrayed lover, and the wronged wife, among others.
David Bliss - Male, Late 40s to 60s: Judith Bliss's husband and Sorel and Simon's father, David is an absent-minded novelist of some acclaim. He is presently preoccupied with "The Sinful Woman". Less melodramatic than his flamboyant wife, David is nevertheless equally self-involved and self-obsessed.
Sorel Bliss - Female, 20s: Judith and David's daughter, Sorel is young, privileged and bored with most of life. She aspires to "normalise" herself and the rest of the Bliss family. Despite her attempts at self–improvement Sorel remains very much a "Bliss" eccentric and unconventional.
Simon Bliss - Male, 20s: Simon is Judith and David’s son. In contrast to his sister, he has no desire to reform the Blisses’ unconventional and often inconsiderate ways. In typical Bliss fashion, Simon is given to extremes, expressing energetically his adoration for the worldly Myra one minute, then seducing the innocent Jackie the next.
Myra Arundel - Female late 30s to 50s: Well–dressed, confident, and sophisticated, Myra is invited to the Bliss house by her admirer Simon but coolly rebuffs his advances. Simon’s mother, Judith, describes her as a "self–conscious vampire" who "goes about using sex as a shrimping net."
Richard Greatham - Male, 40s to 60s: Richard is the "frightfully well–known diplomat" Sorel has invited for the weekend. Described in the stage directions as "iron–grey and tall," he has an instinct for politeness and is suave in both appearance and disposition.
Jackie Coryton - Female, 20s to 30s: Jackie is the “perfectly sweet flapper” David has invited for the weekend because “she’s an abject fool but a useful type” and he wants “to study her a little in domestic surroundings.” She is shy and ill at ease from the start, her discomfort magnifies as the weekend progresses.
Sandy Tyrell - Male, 20s to 40s: Sandy is the amateur boxer Judith has invited for the weekend. In her words, he is "a perfect darling, and madly in love with me." Described in the stage directions as "fresh–looking" with an unspoiled, youthful sense of honour and rather big hands, owing to a "misplaced enthusiasm for boxing," Actors with “normal” sized hands will be considered for this role.
Clara - Female, 30s to 60s: Clara is the long-suffering Bliss family employee. Originally Judith’s dresser at the theatre, she is now the over-taxed family housekeeper. Clara must deal with the imposition of four unexpected weekend guests all by herself because the maid is sick with a toothache.

Rehearsals, which will start 30th September, will be on Tuesday and Thursday evenings and Sunday afternoons.

Please note that, though you do not have to join the GST to audition, all actors in a GST show are required to be members.

Tammy Grimes impersonated a trollop with a vivid imagination in the Broadway production of the English hit. With an aristocratic background borrowed from novels she's read, she picks up a lonely man who's come down to London for a frolic, and takes him off to her basement apartment. His pretension to worldliness quickly goes sour, for he has no experience with women and is totally gauche in this new situation. Neither of them is really what he seems. One by one they strip away the pretences that mask their loneliness.

Thoroughly Modern Millie

WOW!'s 2019 show will be "Thoroughly Modern Millie" which will run from 18-23 February 2019.

Pre-Auditions
We will be running three pre-audition rehearsals, where potential cast members can get to know a little about the show and the audition process; meet the Director (Claire Carr), Musical Director (Susannah Edom) and Assistant to the Director (Olivia Bentley); learn the audition pieces, songs and dances. These will take place on:

Sunday 9th September 2018 10:30-15:00 at Witham Public Hall, Collingwood Road CM8 2DY
Monday 10th September 19:30-21:30 at Spring Lodge Community Centre, Witham CM8 2HE
Thursday 13th September 19:30-21:30 at Spring Lodge Community Centre, Witham CM8 2HE
Please wear loose fitting clothes and suitable shoes* for the pre-audition workshops and bring a pad and pencil with you. You will also need a packed lunch for the Sunday workshop and plenty to drink for all sessions.

The cost of the pre-audition sessions will be £3 for the Sunday session and £3 for the Monday and/or Thursday sessions. The audition fee will also be £3.

*ABOUT SHOES...
Girls will need character shoes for the show (tan preferably) so if you have these for auditions then great. If no characters, please wear dance shoes (jazz, street etc). Please do not wear trainers. Those who wish to audition as a tapper will need tap shoes for the auditions (borrow or second hand for the auditions).
Boys will need rehearsal shoes – preferably jazz shoes to rehearse in and therefore these would be best for auditions. If no jazz shoes then Converse etc will be fine for auditions. If there are boys who are able to tap and wish to audition to tap, they will also need tap shoes for the auditions. Or decent shoes that you can dance out clear beats of the steps.

Auditions
Auditions will take place on Sunday 16th September from 11am at Witham Public Hall.
If you are unable to attend the main auditions, there will be early auditions at the end of the pre-audition workshop on Thursday 13th September at 9pm at Spring Lodge.

Rehearsals
Rehearsals will take place at Spring Lodge on Monday and Thursday evenings from 7:30 to 9:30pm from September 17th until the first week of February 2019. For the second week of February, rehearsals will be on Tuesday and Thursday evenings 7:30pm to 10pm at Witham Pubic Hall. There will also be some Sunday rehearsals which will take place as follows:
11th November 2018 10:00-16:00 at Hall 1, Spring Lodge

September 15, 2018, 1:00pm open call

Auditions are an open call beginning at 1:00pm.

Casting 7 or more women

You are welcome to prepare a monologue or scene from the script, but sides will be available for cold readings. Sides will be available to check out starting September 1.

Rehearsals start October 1 st and run Monday, and Wednesday evenings and Saturday afternoons. Further rehearsals will be scheduled if needed.

Performances will take place Wednesday November 28th through December 2nd at The Merced Multi Cultural Arts Center.

PLAY SUMMARY: Marlene, a successful career woman living in the 1980s, has just received a major promotion, a major step in her fight to reach the top of her profession. As the play begins, she is hosting a dinner party for famous female historical figures from throughout the ages, including Pope Joan, Isabella Bird, and Patient Griselda. This unlikely group discuss their own histories and reflect on what being a woman meant in their own times. As the play shifts to the present day, Marlene’s success in her chosen field is clearly causing irreparable damage to her personal life and relationships. Her sister, Joyce, is left to take care of Marlene’s daughter, leaving the young girl confused about who her mother really is. As Marlene’s story jumps back and forth through time, she attempts to make sense of her life and come to terms with mistakes that she has made in the past.

Besides Marlene, cast is traditionally double/triple cast, but that may change based on who shows up to auditions. Feel free to audition for any role that appeals to you, regardless of age.
The play takes place in London in the 80s, so English accents will be required for many of the roles, but don’t worry about using an accent in auditions unless it comes easily to you. We will be working with you on accents.

Sunday 16th September 2018?
Time: 10:00 – 16:00?


We are delighted to announce that the audition pack for our next show, 'Urinetown' is available.
Urinetown smashed Broadway and the Westend when it was first released. Rightfully boasting to...

Strong singing and character acting is required. Especially looking for men to fill the various male roles within the show. Below are details of the show and audition info!
‘It is the near future. The human activity has led to water shortages. People live in cities and are forced to visit only the public toilets to relieve themselves. Mega-concern ‘Urine Good Company’ holds control over such institutions. The life of the population depends on the decisions of the toilet authorities. Everyone has to pay for the natural needs; if he is unable to do this – he forcibly send to Urinetown. What is happening in Urinetown is unknown but no one returned from there…..’
Urinetown is a dark comedy, full of fantastic songs and quirky characters. This show will give its performers the chance to showcase their vocal abilities to the fullest and allow for great character acting.

If this has got you as excited as us, then please download the full audition pack via the link below. If you are interested in joining the group for this show, the directors’ emails are included within the audition pack on the last page. Please email and a link for the sign up page will be provided.

Lovesick Prince Hilarion was married to his dearest wife Princess Ida before either of them had reached their third birthday, and the so-called couple haven't met since. Now Hilarion's twenty-two and desperate to be reunited with his mysterious bride, but Ida has greater ambitions: she's founded a women's university, and she's not giving it up for the sake of some mouldy old marriage contract. As Ida vows to renounce romance for academia and Hilarion struggles to convince her otherwise, their future kingdoms descend into chaos, until there's a lot more than just principles at stake...
Named Roles
Ida - idealistic founder of Castle Adamant, the women's university
Psyche - Ida's sardonic deputy, the Professor of Humanities
Blanche - Ida's scheming Professor of Abstract Science
Melissa - Blanche's daughter, a disaffected Adamant student
Sacharissa - smug Senior Student, and tormentor of Melissa
Chloe - a shy student with a dangerous secret
Ada - another student, Sacharissa's infatuated acolyte
Queen Hildebrande - warrior-queen of the neighbouring kingdom
Hilarion - her adorable son
Cyril - Hilarion's reckless friend

King Gama - Ida's misanthropic father
Arac - Ida's flamboyant warrior-brother
Guron - Ida's dim-witted warrior-brother
Scynthius - Ida's perpetually frightened warrior-brother

Accrington Pals Readthrough & Auditions

Contact: via website or social media


13 Aug at 19:30 & 16 Aug at 19:30

CADS are still looking for actors to cast ‘The Accrington Pals’. This very moving play by Peter Whelan is to tie in with the centenary anniversary and memorials of the end of the first world war, and will run Weds 28th November – Sat 1st December 2018.
We will be holding a further read through on Monday 13th August, with further auditions on Thursday 16th August.
ALBERT EDWARD HALL, Bockings Elm, 7.30pm
This is a lyrical, absorbing play, set in Accrington in 1914-1916, which follows the story of the innocent and enthusiastic men who volunteered their services to their country after Kitchener's calls for a New Army. The 'Pals' are the men from the local volunteer battalion who march high-spiritedly off to the Great War with their experiences in the trenches contrasted with those of the women left behind.
At times funny, at times sad, it paints a moving and powerful picture of the changes in civilian life during wartime. The fun and light hearted moments are starkly contrasted with the terrifying reality hundreds of men faced at the Battle of the Somme in 1916.
The main characters too are contrasted; May, as independent, hard-working, fruit and veg stall holder, Tom her lodger, optimistic and idealistic and Eva, May's trusted and generous confidante and sweetheart of Ralph.
CAST - Please note that all ages are an approximate guide but can be flexible depending on who is cast.
MAY - a stallholder, late 20's or older
TOM - an apprentice - 19 ish
RALPH - a clerk, 19 or so
EVA - a mill girl .. same age as Ralph
BERTHA - a mill girl - 18 ish
ARTHUR - Annie's husband, late 20'3/30's
REGGIE - her son - 14/15 ish
C.S.M. RIVERS - a regular soldier - 30's/40's

Audience with Murder

Audience with Murder by Roger Leach & Colin Wakefield

Contact: Any questions, please email Director, Terry Gallager or email BCP on contactus@banburycrossplayers.org.uk.


Auditions: Thursday 5 July 2018, 7.30pm
Production dates are 21 - 24 November 2018 at The Mill Arts Centre. You will need to be available from Sunday 18 November 2018 for Technical and Dress Rehearsals. You do not need to be a member to audition but will be required to join if cast. Click for further details on BCP membership.


BCP announce AUDITIONS for the opening play of their 2018 / 2019 Season: Audience with Murder by Roger Leach & Colin Wakefield.

Last year 18 million Crime novels were bought in the UK alone. TV series – Line of Duty, Broadchurch, The Cuckoo’s Calling, Peaky Blinders, Vera, Marcella plus re-runs of Midsomer Murders, Death in Paradise, Miss Marple, Taggert and Dalziel and Pascoe (to name but a few) - all go to show the popularity of crime stories.

Audience With Murder is intriguing, multi-layered, witty, and full of unexpected twists. A Russian doll of a play, it moves from a seemingly innocuous domestic play-reading, through a murder mystery in the classic style, to a final terrifying and violent climax.

The actors play characters in four different plays within the one so there is ample opportunity to stretch your acting self!

ROLES
George - late 40s/mid-50s
Sally - late 40s/mid-50s
Charles - early to mid-20s
Kim - early to mid-20s

The following should be borne in mind if auditioning:
• Adult Themes
• Strong Language
• Gun Shots

REHEARSALS
There will be two Cast get-togethers during August to discuss the play. The first rehearsal will be Monday 3 Sept 2018, then Mondays and Thursdays thereafter.

REVIEWS
"This was the best theatre we saw on the Fringe this year" Edinburgh - Your Voice
" ..a chameleon of a thriller ... Catch it if you can" Edinburghguide.com
"Exquisitely plotted... An evening of taut, suspenseful entertainment, shot through with the kind of dark humour that helps to ramp up the tension." Ilford Recorder
"A stylish thriller in the tradition of Deathtrap and Sleuth." Pewter Plough Playhouse, Cambria, California

Tower of London Auditions!

We have a fantastic opportunity for young people to get involved and perform at the iconic Tower of London!

We are looking for young adults aged 16-22 to perform as part of Go Medieval at the Tower in August. Go Medieval is held in the moat at the Tower of London and runs over three days. It celebrates the coronation of Queen Margaret of Anjou in 1445 and aims to immerse families in a medieval world. If successful, applicants would be playing a selection of roles, including medieval royalty, during the three day event. It is a brilliant opportunity to work with professional performers in a unique setting and develop skills in site specific performance. This is the second year this project is running and last year we had brilliant feedback from performers and audience alike!

The open-call auditions will be held at the Tower of London on the evening of Thursday 5th July 2018, with the performance days being 4th-6th August 2018.
More details and the application form are available at www.hrp.org.uk/auditions

Keen to boost his flagging career, fading Hollywood action hero Jefferson Steele arrives in England to play King Lear in Stratford – only to find that this is not the birthplace of the Bard, but a sleepy Suffolk village. The cast are a ‘bunch of amateurs’, trying to save their theatre from developers. Jefferson’s monsterous ego, vanity and insecurity are tested to the limit by the enthusiatic am-dram thespians. As acting worlds collide, and Jefferson’s career implodes, he discovers some truths about himself – along with his inner Lear.

AUDITIONS - Monday 16th July @ 7.30pm, Quay Auditorium and Sunday 22nd July @ 1pm, Jetty
Performance: Satuday 15th December to Tuesday 1st January 2019


It’s a tale of heroes and villains, love, romance and adventure in Suffolk. Yes, in Suffolk! Not many people know that Maid Marion was a local lass nor that the wicked Sherriff of Nottingham and his evil mother had designs on our fair county – oh, yes they did! Will Robin and his merry men foil their dastardly plans? Not without help from the fairy and local wildlife AND you.
To tell this tale we are looking for 2 casts to act, sing, dance and have a great time filling the following roles;
Robin Hood. Our traditional hero. In love with Maid Marion (and a little in love with himself too). Will she straighten him out?
Little John. Robin’s dependable but not terribly bright right hand man and the object of Nell’s affections.
Will Scarlet. A merry man, a minstrel and the Principal Boy who falls for ……(that’s a secret for now).
Friar Tuck. But really our Dame Nell, in disguise (male) who has designs on Little John.Maid Marion. Daughter of the Earl and our traditional heroine. Romantic and rather naïve but learns quickly from Nell (Doubles as the owl puppeteer).
Basil, Sheriff of Nottingham. One of our villains, much influenced by his wicked mother.
The Marchioness Melania. Basil’s mother, the brains behind the evil plot and a dab hand with a magic wand. (Doubles as Gus the pheasant).
Gordon the guard. Basil’s henchman and much put upon. (Doubles with the Earl and the frog).
Dylan. A nervous deer.
Gus. A suave, cock pheasant. (Doubles with Melania).
Owl. A grumpy puppet. (Doubles with Maid Marion).
Pandora the Fairy. (Female) Once known as Fairy Apple-blossom but now a teenager and a feisty fairy with attitude

16 July at 19:30

We are looking to cast 6 female and 5 male roles of varying ages formulate teens/early 20’s to … a more mature age! We invite interest from keen or even would-be thespians. This beautiful comedy from the pen of Neil Simon is the Dedham Players next production which will perform at the Assembly Rooms, Dedham 24-27th October, 2018. If you can't make it contact Kelvin on kandj@jkhastings.me.uk
Audition material available in a few weeks on our website. Our director for this show, Kelvin Hastings-Smith looks forward to seeing you at the auditions! Rehearsals are normally twice-three times a week at Dedham Assembly Rooms. Rehearsals will start in September.
Background Information
The action of the play concerns the life of … a hotel suite in California during the course of the year. Set in the mid 1970’s the hotel suite is host to a once married couple meeting for the first time in years to discuss where their teenage daughter is going to go to college - New York or California. A rather tetchy bitter sweet encounter follows; Millie and Marvin have arrived from Philadelphia to attend a relative’s bar mitzvah - Marvin arrived the night before and had quite a night of it (which he doesn’t want Millie to know about); The couple from London getting ready to attend the Academy Awards ceremony, she has been nominated for best actress. We see the before and after of the ceremony pulsate through the hotel suite; Finally, two couples, four friends, enjoying the 4th July celebrations. What could be nicer than spending time with close friends?
This is a major comedy which has thrilled audiences on Broadway and the West End and was also made into a successful film starring Maggie Smith and Michael Caine as well as Walter Matthau, Alan Alder and Jane Fonda.

The Accrington Pals

Contact: via our website or social media


The Read Through will be held at the Albert Edward Hall, Bockings Elm on Monday 16th July, with Auditions on Thursday 19th July, both at 7.30pm.

To tie in with the centenary anniversary and memorials of the end of the first world war, our next production Weds 28th November – Sat 1st December 2018 will be ‘The Accrington Pals’ by Peter Whelan.
This is a very moving play which follows the story of the innocent and enthusiastic men who volunteered their services to their country after Kitchener's calls for a New Army. Their experiences of life on the Western Front are contrasted with the women who are left behind in Accrington; women who come together as friends when facing financial, social and sexual deprivation, as well as being thrown into the social changes that came along with the absence of many men.
The main characters are; May, independent, hard-working, fruit and veg stall holder, Tom her lodger, optimistic and idealistic and Eva, May's trusted and generous confidante and sweetheart of Ralph. The play has fun and light hearted moments, which are starkly contrasted with the terrifying reality hundreds of men faced at the Battle of the Somme in 1916.

Contact: via our website or social media


Audition: Sunday 22nd July 2018 7.30pm
Performances: Wednesday 10th - Sunday 14th October at Upstairs at the Gatehouse, Highgate Village, N6 4BD


The play is set in Jess and Mat's swish Muswell Hill kitchen in January 2010, before, during and after a dinner party. They have invited her friend Karen, a widow, and his friend Simon, together with Jess' recovering alcoholic, much younger, sister, Annie, to a dinner of avocado and prawns and monkfish stew.
A number of catastrophic events occur.
The minor one is an earthquake in Haiti which leaves one hundred thousand people dead.
The major ones involve: Mat, a struggling writer, Jess, his high flying accountant wife, and their oddball guests. Before the guests arrive, Mat casually drops into the conversation that he knows Jess is having an affair. The next bombshell is that neurotic Karen has gone vegetarian and no longer eats fish! It soon becomes apparent that any plans to pair off awkward, idealistic dreamers Simon and Karen are unlikely to succeed. A cocaine-fuelled Annie arrives and announces that she has invited a friend, a theatre director, Tony. She reveals that Tony, who she met at a recovery meeting, and she are to be married. When Tony arrives he turns out to be considerably older than Annie.
Throughout the evening all the protagonists are heavily engaged in texting, emailing and using their mobiles. There are even occasional passing references to the disaster in Haiti! As the consumption of alcohol increases, embarrassment, shifting alliances and arguments (some heated) ensue.

CHARACTERS:
Mat - Playing age 35. An aspiring author. A medium sized part.
Jess - Playing age 35. Married to Mat, a successful accountant, who is having an affair but she pays the bills! A largish part with lots of props, on and off a lot!
Karen - Playing age 35. Jess' friend, a widow, a cancer nurse with Marie Curie. A medium sized part.
Simon - Playing age 35. An old university friend of Mat’s. Been on a 15 year gap year, holds strong opinions and is not backward in expressing them.
Annie - Playing age 23. Jess' younger sister, adopted by Jess parents, a recovering alcoholic, a cocaine user, an aspiring actress. A smaller part.
Tony - Playing age 60. Annie’s lover, a theatre director and a recovering alcoholic. A cocaine user, estranged from his wife, but still married. Has slept around. A smaller part.

The ages given are as described, but there is a small degree of latitude on these, depending on availability and mix.

The Lion in Winter by James Goldman

Contact: via our website or social media


Auditions: Friday 1st June 7.30pm.
Performance: 6th – 9th March 2019


This play about Henry II and Eleanor of Aquitaine, was an Oscar winning film starring Peter O’Toole and Katherine Hepburn.
Directed by Caroline Kay.
Set during Christmas 1183 at Henry II of England’s castle in Chinon, France, the play opens with the arrival of Henry’s wife, Eleanor of Aquitaine, whom he has imprisoned since 1173. The story concerns the gamesmanship between Henry, Eleanor and their three surviving sons Richard, Geoffrey and John and their Christmas court guest, King Philip II of France (the son of Eleanor’s ex-husband King Louis VII of France.) Also involved is Philip’s half sister Alais, who has been at the English court since she was betrothed to Richard at the age of 8, but has since become Henry’s mistress. The aim is to sort out a successor to the English throne – Henry favours John, Eleanor favours Richard and Geoffrey will play both sides against each other and come out on top (he hopes). Henry would also like to have another heir by his mistress Alais, but that would only add to the confusion.
A fast paced, witty piece of drama – ‘Dynasty’ for the Middle Ages.
Characters:
Henry II, King of England – (50+) Though aging, Henry is still very nearly as vital as he ever was. His manipulations of family and others are portrayed as spontaneous and emotional as opposed to the clinical stratagems of Eleanor and the calculating machinations of Geoffrey.
Queen Eleanor – (50+) Eleanor was 11 years older than Henry in reality but that doesn’t really matter here. She is a beautiful woman of hot temperament, great authority and presence. She has been queen for 46 years and is thoroughly capable of holding her own in a man’s world. She schemes against Henry and loves him intensely at the same time. She has contempt for her children but is not willing to see them harmed.
John – the youngest son of Henry and Eleanor. He is sulky and sullen, Henry’s favourite but also the weakest. He vacillates throughout the play and is easily tricked and manipulated by Geoffrey.
Geoffrey – he is the next youngest of their sons and a man of energy and action. He is attractive, charming and has the strongest intellect of the family. He is also a cold and amoral schemer.
Richard (the Lionheart) – he is the third, and eldest, surviving son. Richard is handsome, graceful and impressive and has been a famous soldier since his teens. War is his profession and he’s good at it. He is easily the strongest and toughest of the three brothers.
Alais – she is in love with Henry. Everyone underestimates her intellect and power. Initially portrayed as an innocent, by the end of the play she has acquired a ruthless streak.
Philip II, King of France –he has been King of France for three years. Not as accomplished as Henry in manipulating people but acquires the skill as the play progresses.
John, Geoffrey, Richard, Alais and Philip all have to be of a similar age.

22, 25 & 26 May and 5 June

Open auditions for Bouncers will be held on the following dates:
Friday 25th May, 7.30pm
Tuesday 5th June, 7.30pm

Open auditions for Shakers will be held on the following dates:
Tuesday 22nd May at 7.30pm
Saturday 26th May at 2pm

It's time to let your 80s hair down and get ready for a big night out, with not one, but two Godber classics.
Start the evening in the disco, where Ralph, Judd, Les and Lucky Eric, your friendly local Bouncers, will take you on a journey through the lives of the many and varied customers who enter through their well-managed doors.
After a brief interval, join waitresses, Nicki, Mel, Carol and Adele in oh-so trendy cocktail bar Shakers, and observe their portrayal of the people whose patronage both pays their bills and gives them aggro.
Written in the 1980s, and retaining all the 'charm' of that era, yet still every bit as relevant and relatable today, we present a back-to-back showing of John Godber and Jane Thornton's Bouncers and Shakers. At rip-roaring speed, over two one-act plays, our eight actors employ physical and vocal humour to play multiple roles, giving you a glimpse into the lives of dozens of different characters. Wince at some, cringe at others, but above-all, laugh with our Bouncers and Shakers.

This hilarious cricketing comedy needs no introduction, and was first staged by us in 1996.
Directed by Gareth Jones.
Roger is having trouble getting a team together for the afternoon’s fixture against the British Railways Maintenance Division Yeading East but this proves to be the least of anyone’s worries. Bob is having marriage trouble as he is still doing odd jobs for his ex-wife behind his current wife Ginnie’s back. Dennis is also having marital trouble as his wife seems intent on moving house despite the fact they only moved recently. When he finally puts his foot down she sets fire to his new car. Kevin is trying to fight off his over affectionate wife Maggie while at the same time nurse his injured spinning finger and Alex’s new girlfriend ends up shutting herself in the toilets having hysterics. Even Roger’s seemingly perfect marriage to Miriam hits the skids when she discovers he was playing away from home in more ways than one on a trip to Dorking last year. Just when it seems things can’t get any worse for them, it starts to rain.
Characters (All the ages are flexible)
Roger : Roger is the team captain who seems to enjoy being the leader more than actually playing cricket. Likes to think of himself as a great leader of men and organiser but in reality most of the organising is done by his wife. Outwardly he and Miriam have a perfect marriage but there is in fact very little in the way of affection between the two and when he says I Love You it’s usually just to keep her happy and not because he really means it.
Miriam : Miriam has put up with Roger’s cold and almost uncaring attitude for many years and hides all her frustration behind her beaming smile and sunny personality. Miriam is the real organiser of the team but she lets Roger take all the credit for it as she knows it makes him happy. She becomes increasingly frustrated as the play goes on and finds it more and more difficult to keep it in.
Kevin : Kevin is the closest thing Roger has to a real friend on the team and the demon spin bowler. Married to Maggie whom he adores despite their explosive relationship. He often behaves like a petulant child sulking when things don’t go his way and blowing hot and cold with Maggie over her mothering of him.
Maggie : Kevin’s wife who adores him but often behaves more like his mother than his wife. Like a mother she is very good at dealing with Kevin when he gets in a sulk. Maggie is not a stereotypical woman and is more at home doing DIY than domestic chores.
Bob : Bob is married to Ginnie but still spends a lot of time with his ex wife doing odd jobs mainly out of guilt. Bob has a constantly guilty expression and never seems to be able to say not to anyone. Despite his faults Bob is a down to earth sort who has no time for pretentious phonies like Dennis and arrogant show offs like Alex.
Ginnie : Bob’s long suffering second wife. She arrives unannounced at the match when Bob has left to visit his ex-wife leaving Miriam to try to cover for him. Ginnie’s relationship with Roger and Miriam is strained to say the least as Roger was very fond of Bob’s ex-wife and Ginnie views Miriam as an interfering busy body who spends too much time worrying about other people’s marriages and not paying enough attention to her own declining one. It is Ginnie who first hints to Miriam about Roger’s little indiscretion in Dorking.
Dennis : Dennis is a carpet salesman who likes to give the impression he is a well-connected self-made man. Dennis also fancies himself as a ladies man but just comes across as a letch. In an effort to get people to like him he gets equipment for the team which he gives them at a reduced price claiming he gets it wholesale when in fact he has paid full price.
Alex : Alex is a lawyer who, perhaps for this reason alone, is much disliked by Bob – although in truth, if only out of jealousy, there are plenty of reasons to dislike this character; if his abundant snobbery and good looks aren’t enough, he is also by far the best batsman on the team. Perhaps unsurprisingly then, Alex is also the only unmarried male in the play – but makes up for this with nothing less than a pole dancer girlfriend who, in one comic moment in the play, feels the need to lock herself in the toilets due to her treatment by Alex.
Sharon : Sharon is Alex’s latest girlfriend who like most of the women he tends to attract isn’t overly furnished in the brain department. She feels very out of place at the cricket club and the fact that Alex ignores her doesn’t make things any better. She ends up locking herself in the toilets and having hysterics.

Jenkins is the hottest ticket in town, an enthusiastic soprano with less than perfect pitch, she warbles and screeches her way through arias by Mozart and Strauss, accompanied by her trusty pianist. But this delusional and joyously happy woman pays little attention to her critics, and surrounds herself with devoted friends and fans nearly as eccentric as herself.
Based upon a true story, the play follows Florence through charity recitals, balls, bizarre recording sessions, and ultimately to her triumphant performance at Carnegie Hall.

CHARACTERS
FLORENCE FOSTER JENKINS - Eccentric American lady 60-70's. When she sings badly she hears the voice of an angel. (Helpful if the actress can sing and has some knowledge of Opera)
COSME McMOON - Male 30's American pianist. Good comic timing. Piano playing not require but would be an excellent addition!
ST CLAIR - Male 60-70's. Florence's English boyfriend. Full of enthusiasm, thinks the world of Florence.
DOROTHY - 60-70's Florence's friend also eccentric and thinks Florence can sing.
MARIA - Female 30's Mexican cook/maid. Can't speak a word of English. Very funny part.
MRS VERRINDER-GEDGE - American 40's upwards. Disgusted at Florence murdering the operas. Small part

Rehearsal Period:
Rehearsals will take place from early July at 7.30pm for 2-3 evenings on Monday to Thursday, as well as around 3 hours rehearsal on a Sunday. Sometimes there may be a need to rehearse on Saturdays and to rehearse on different days and times. Most actors will only be called for 2 rehearsals a week until the final few weeks, when actors should be prepared to rehearse on up to 4 days a week. If you have summer holidays planned please don’t think this prevents you from auditioning, that is partly why we are starting rehearsals in July to factor in cast members being on holiday.


Please find below the details of the auditions and backstage help required. Please do get in touch with the Director, Zoe with any questions you may have by emailing zoe.thomaswebb@gmail.com
Please note:
This is an amateur production. You do not need to be a member of Putney Theatre Company to audition, but actors and crew will need to become a member of Putney Theatre Company to take part in the show for £20 a year, and a £20 show fee will be due.

Audition Preparation:
Please go to the website to download the audition form, and if you can fill it out before hand and send it to the director Zoe, zoe.thomaswebb@gmail.com

You can download some audition pieces on the website as well, to try to work on any accents prior to the audition, but there is no need to prepare these.

The first audition will involve games and exercises to see how you work with other actors and how you work physically, nothing to strenuous or exhausting but do come in clothes that you can move in. We will also work on some accent and reading work. There is no need to prepare any text beforehand, but please do read the play or at least the plot of Picnic on Wikipedia. I would be wary of watching the film, as it doesn’t have quite the same vibe as the show we are trying to create. Please also make sure you arrive on time as we shall be starting promptly.
The recalls will involve detailed scene work and some games/exercises.

Synopsis:
“What can you do with the love you feel? Where is there you can take it”
Madge in Picnic

It’s Labor Day and the women of Independence, Kanas are preparing for the annual picnic. Sisters Madge and Millie bicker, their mother Flo pesters, neighbour Helen bustles and teacher Rosemary meddles. These seemingly content group of women are disrupted by the arrival of the young and charming drifter Hal. Hearts are broken and lives are changed in the following 24 hours, as Hal’s lively, dangerous, masculine energy wakes up the sleepy community. This Pulitzer Prize winning play explores themes of sexuality, repression, rites of passage and disappointment.

Our production will focus on the sexuality and the role of gender within this production, using music, dance and ensemble theatre. Picnic shows a traditional Americana world where the people who inhabit it are consumed by longing and desire and it’s those hidden feelings that we want to draw out in this production.

“I been talkin' with my buddy, and he thinks I'm virgin enough for the two of us.”
William Inge

Characters: 7 Female. 4 Male

Madge Owens (18 - 20) A homecoming queen. Popular, flirty and fun. She is going out with Alan but feels both unworthy of him and too good for him. At a crossroads in her life and at this young age she already feels like she’s failing.
Milly Owens (16-18) Madge’s younger sister. Clever, solitary and driven. With her fiery temper she couldn’t be more different from her sister. However, she is desperate to understand and replicate her sister’s appeal.
Rosemary Sydney (30s-mid 50s) A school teacher. Funny, independent and lonely. She loves her job and the freedom it brings her. However, she longs for a life she didn’t choose and the possibility of never having it, terrifies her.
Hal Carter (20s) A drifter. Charming, optimistic and adventurous. An ex-college football player, an ex-Hollywood actor, an eternal dreamer. He is a people pleaser, wanting everyone to love him and be in love with him.
Alan Seymour * (20s) Madge’s boyfriend. Kind, romantic and gentlemanly. A rich college student, a class above the other characters of the play. Admired by many but frustrated that he isn’t truly loved by one.
Flo Owens (35-45) Madge and Milly’s mother. Loving, bitter and suspicious. A good mother who is perhaps too protective of her daughters. Her life has been tough, and she is determined that her daughters won’t have to work as hard.
Helen Potts * (40s-60s) Flo’s neighbour. Sweet, welcoming and wise. As a widow, Helen is stuck looking after her bed-ridden mother but longs for a glamorous life filled with fun.
Howard Bevans (30s-50s) Rosemary’s friend. Affectionate, playful and weak. Howard is a fun presence in the community, but he can be easily led and he similarly to Hal is just desperate to be liked.
Irma Kronkite * (20s-40s) Rosemary’s colleague. Gossipy and fun. A view of the community of single ladies that Rosemary is both engrained in and desperate to leave.
Christine Schoenwalder * (20s-40s) Rosemary’s colleague. Friendly and shy. A view of the community of single ladies that Rosemary is both engrained in and desperate to leave.
Bomber * (16-18) A newspaper boy. An aggressive flirter with both Madge and Millie. A view of the local boys of the community.

* For these roles we are interested in anyone who can sing or play any instruments, but this does not exclude people who can’t.

Backstage opportunities available include:
Lighting & Sound operators, Set construction, Stage management

19 Jun 2018 7:30pm

The play follows the life of George Bailey from age 12 in year 1919 through his early college years into getting married to Mary Hatch and having 4 children.
His father has a building & loan business and on his death it passes down to George even though that stops George going to university. The business is run for the benefit of the local folk who wouldn’t otherwise be able to afford a mortgage. Much to the annoyance of businessman Potter who tries his hardest to close down the Bailey company.
When George in desperation decides to commit suicide his guardian angel, Clarence, takes matters into his own hands.
This is a truly spirit-lifting play that could only be performed around Christmas time.
It is written for 70 characters but with exception of the main Bailey family and certain others such as Rotter Potter, we can keep the action of this play running fluently by giving each player at least 3 characters. Some are small character parts but this is a tremendous opportunity for everyone to be on stage and show off their acting prowess.
I have managed to reduce the 70 characters to 26. That is still a massive number when we sometimes cannot cast a typical play.
The 4 children play their parents at same age then become the children. Great chance for aspiring youth actors.
Unlike the film the angels are on stage almost the whole play. These are great parts.
George Bailey has as you would expect the central role.
Clarence is as they say “a part to die for”
CHARACTERS
Frankie - a More Senior Angel – any age
Jo - a Senior Angel – any age
Clarence- Low-Ranking Angel - 50+
George Bailey - The Protagonist - 30's

Birdsong - adapted from the best selling novel by Sebastian Faulks

Contact: via website or social media


Auditions: 20 June 7:30pm & 24 June 2:00pm
Rehearsals will begin mid/late July. Performance dates are 8th-17th November


we have been granted a very special opportunity to perform Birdsong over the period of the Centenary of the Armistice – exactly 100 years after the First World War ended. We will be working in conjunction with the Royal British Legion to commemorate this anniversary.
“No child or future generation will ever know what this was like, will ever understand”
Based on Sebastian Faulks’s international bestselling novel, Birdsong tells the story of a soldier haunted by his past. As a young man, Stephen Wraysford was caught up in an all-consuming love affair in Amiens, France. As the First World War unfolds, Stephen finds himself pulled closer and closer back to Amiens, back to the Valley of the Somme…
Birdsong is a powerful and compelling story about courage, love, friendship and the horrors of war – it is a tale of one man’s quest to understand how far mankind can go and still call itself human…

Secondary Cause of Death a comedy by Peter Gordon

Contact: via website or social media


01 May 2018 19:30

The playing dates for this cracking comedy are 21st – 24th November 2018 at Woodford Community Centre.
Sheryl Haydock-Howorth is in the Driector’s chair for this one and she is very much looking forward to the fun! Any queries please email Sheryl.

The character breakdown is as follows:

COLONEL CHARLES CRADDOCK age late 50’s +
Retired gent with a confident military air but blustery manner. This character also doubles as Cardew Longfellow (see below) some quick changes of costume so needs to be agile at crawling off stage through a small secret space

ARDEW LONGFELLOW
Thespian with a loud OTT booming voice who is quite haughty. Doubles with the Colonel

Lady Isadora Pollock age 40’s
Glamourous and elegant woman must be able to change her accent for coarse American accent when she becomes a rather seductive character in the staged murder mystery

Count Puchlik of Puszczykowo 40-50
Polish Gentleman, with a pronounced East European accent and speaks very bad English slowly and deliberately . Also speaks with a German at certain times

Captain Henrietta Woolmer-Cardington 30’s
An ATS (Army Territorial Services) dressed in uniform and has breeding. She also a bit school girlish and endearingly stupid. She CANNOT pronounce her ‘Rs’

Cynthia Maple – middle aged
Comes to stage a murder mystery evening, she is overbearing brusque and has a caustic manner wears a tweed skirt and baggy jumper

Martha Armstrong ( Housekeeper) – 50’s
Has a working class accent either Northern or Cockney

Lily Tuthill – Cook in disguise 50’s
Also has a broad Northern or Cockney Accent which she changes with her dual character as a secret agent

Inspector Pratt – 50+
Is a clumsy buffoon who gets everything wrong, he is inept and a walking disaster he’s a bit like Peter Sellers in The Pink Panther. Has to have excellent timing.

Nurse Ann Parsley – young 25-30
Attractive and flirty with a cheeky attitude

Secondary Cause of Death is a comedy thriller by Peter Gordon. Cast – 3 male 6 female
It’s 1939, and storm clouds are gathering over Europe. Colonel Charles Craddock has inherited Bagshot House, and he has converted the property into a hotel for the “discerning visitor”. It isn’t long before the hapless Inspector Pratt arrives once again at Bagshot House, bearing grim news for the Colonel. But that’s only the start of the Colonel’s woes! Who is the strange Polish Count? Is Henrietta really an army captain? And where does the flamboyant thespian Cardew Longfellow fit into the picture? When Joan Maple’s sister Cynthia arrives to stage a murder mystery evening, it’s not long before Pratt’s visit turns into a chaotic nightmare as the bodies pile higher than ever!

Audition Dates: 12th May 2018, Tower Theatre, Shorncliffe 2.00pm-4.00pm
Performance Dates: 11th July 2018 – The Hythe Festival


The Shorncliffe Trust is putting on this classic Georgian Farce for the Hythe festival. It was first performed by the legendary soldiers of the 95th Rifles regiment of Foot (made famous by Sharpe on ITV) to say thank you for the support from the local people.
The story is about a Con Man, who has to pull off his last big con to win the heart of the girl he loves so he can go straight! It was a huge hit in 1803 and was so popular it put a word in the English language which is still used today. This comedy has been table read in the past and it’s still funny. Lots of opportunity to break the fourth wall, adlib and even over act!
What is unique is the original players went off to fight with Wellington in the Peninsular Wars and at Waterloo. Real comedy heroes!
This the first time a play has been put inside a lecture on comedy in the British Army. It is a two act play – run time 45 minutes. This is a one off show, but the production has been asked to perform it at other locations.
There are 8 parts to be filled 5 main – 3 minor.

Auditions: 14th May 2018 at 7:30PM
Performance: 31.10.2018 – 03.11.2018 at the Hyde Festival Theatre


An infamous tale, Sweeney Todd, an unjustly exiled barber, returns to London, seeking vengeance against the lecherous judge who framed him and ravaged his young wife. The road to revenge leads Todd to Mrs. Lovett, a resourceful proprietress of a failing pie shop, above which, he opens a new barber practice. Mrs. Lovett's luck sharply shifts when Todd's thirst for blood inspires the integration of an ingredient into her meat pies that has the people of London lining up... and the carnage has only just begun!

Auditions will be held on Monday 14th May 2018, 7:30pm at The United Church, Union Street, Hyde, SK14 1ND

Auditions will involve singing and dialogue to be read alongside the casting committee (this will be made available prior to the auditions). Although there aren’t any major dance numbers in the show, there will be a requirement for people to move in time with the music. We will therefore require all candidates to follow some choreographed movement.

We will be rehearsing on Monday and Thursday evenings each week and Sunday afternoons from mid-September. We move into the theatre on or around the 28th October (we are hoping to move in on the 27th) and open on Halloween. Although you will not be called for all rehearsals, you will be expected to be at rehearsals when called (subject to holidays etc). Please also note the rehearsal days – we understand that people tend to be "in" more than one production at a time but, out of courtesy to fellow cast members and the production teams of any project you are involved in, please ensure that you will be able to attend rehearsals before you decide to audition.

Make Way for Lucia

Make Way for Lucia
by John Van Druten
Director Belinda Hasler


Contact: See full details here www.sudburydramatic.com/lucia.html
SCRIPTS are available from The Quay Box Office - to be returned at the earliest please.


AUDITIONS MONDAY 14th May 7.30pm
Performance September 2018


If you haven’t read the books, now is the time to become acquainted. Although the play pulls on distinctive characteristics imagined by E F Benson, the full background of each character is far more complex and funny.
The play is set in Tilling during the early 1930s where the pace is slow and there’s not an awful lot to do for the genteel with private income other than gossip, paint the occasional landscape, daily shop for groceries, gossip, entertain and play bridge. They are led by Miss Mapp who has a strong hold on one and all until the arrival of Lucia. Miss Mapp has met her before, briefly, in Riseholme where… Lucia held sway and all followed her lead.
The Tilling residents swap houses with each other for the summer season by downgrading thereby saving on rental. Lucia,the outsider, rents Miss Mapp’s residence called “Mallards” and so the drama begins…
The play is a story of two women trying to gain the upper hand. It is gently funny and each and every character, however long on stage, can make an impression on the viewing audience
CAST; Five Men and Six Women.

Contact: via our website


22, 25 & 26 May and 5 June

Open auditions for Bouncers will be held on the following dates:
Friday 25th May, 7.30pm
Tuesday 5th June, 7.30pm

Open auditions for Shakers will be held on the following dates:
Tuesday 22nd May at 7.30pm
Saturday 26th May at 2pm

It's time to let your 80s hair down and get ready for a big night out, with not one, but two Godber classics.
Start the evening in the disco, where Ralph, Judd, Les and Lucky Eric, your friendly local Bouncers, will take you on a journey through the lives of the many and varied customers who enter through their well-managed doors.
After a brief interval, join waitresses, Nicki, Mel, Carol and Adele in oh-so trendy cocktail bar Shakers, and observe their portrayal of the people whose patronage both pays their bills and gives them aggro.
Written in the 1980s, and retaining all the 'charm' of that era, yet still every bit as relevant and relatable today, we present a back-to-back showing of John Godber and Jane Thornton's Bouncers and Shakers. At rip-roaring speed, over two one-act plays, our eight actors employ physical and vocal humour to play multiple roles, giving you a glimpse into the lives of dozens of different characters. Wince at some, cringe at others, but above-all, laugh with our Bouncers and Shakers.

Snake in the Grass by Alan Ayckbourn

Contact: via our website or social media


Auditions: Monday 28th May 7.30pm
Performance: 21st – 24th November 2018


Written in 2002, this is a ghost story/thriller by Alan Ayckbourn and has a cast of 3 women.
Annabel, the older sister, has returned home following the death of her father. She is immediately approached by Alice, who nursed her father, who complains to Annabel that Miriam, her younger sister has sacked her, and to gain revenge she is intent on blackmail. Alice is demanding that Annabel pays Alice £100,000, or she will go to the police as she says she has evidence that Miriam murdered the old man. Miriam and Annabel join forces to dispose of Alice, but that is not the end of the story……
What follows is never what you expect, and it was described by the Sunday Times as “A creepily, scarily, eerily enjoyable evening”.
All the parts in this play are large roles with a lot of dialogue, so an experienced cast will be required in order to hold the audience’s attention for the whole evening.
All the ages shown are playing ages, and are approximate, and we can be flexible with the casting.
Annabel Chester Age 35 -50 : She was a successful married business woman, now divorced, and her business has collapsed. Their father has left the bulk of his estate to her.
Miriam Chester: 35-50 : She is Annabel’s younger sister, eternally house-bound to her late father’s house, and a bit resentful that she was left alone to deal with their father.
Alice Moody: 35-50 : A nurse for Annabel and Miriam’s father shortly before his death. She needs to be reasonable agile as she is put down a well, which will be rostra height.

Probably best known for the 1956 film musical adaptation featuring Bing Crosby, Grace Kelly and Frank Sinatra, the stage musical of “High Society” draws more from the original 1939 stage comedy, “The Philadelphia Story” by Phillip Barry. “High Society” tells the tale of the dilemma Tracy finds herself in as she prepares to wed George, when her ex-husband Dexter reappears. Meanwhile, new acquaintance Mike Connor, an undercover reporter there to dig up dirt about her father, provides a welcome and fun distraction from both. Throw in a drunken uncle pretending to be her father, a sophisticated and stoic mother, a younger sister desperate to see Dexter back in her life, and party guests aplenty, and the scene is set for some drunk and disorderly behaviour and one big decision.

The team would love to see all BROS members and returning alumni at the presentation at 8pm on Wednesday 18th April at St Michael’s Church Hall where they will explain in more detail the plot, the people, and the plan. All information can be found on the BROS website along with an indication of playing ages for each character: click here . As always, these are meant as a guide so don’t let it deter you from coming along to find out if there is a part for you in this fun-filled show.

At the presentation we will go through the audition pieces and how best to prepare for the auditions on 28th & 29th April at The Barn Church, Atwood Avenue, Kew TW9 4HF. There will be no workshops in between the presentation and audition and the movement piece will be taught on the day, so please bring appropriate clothing to wear at your audition. All materials will be provided at the presentation and be available to download from the website.

Never has this master of farce been frenetically funnier! Henry A. Perkins, a mild mannered C.P.A, accidently picks up the wrong briefcase one full of money. Henry assumes it is illicit cash and he decides to keep it. Knowing that the former owner must have his briefcase, he rushes home to book one way fares to Barcelona. He tells his confused wife to leave everything behind; if she doesn't like Barcelona, they can go to Bali. In fact, they can buy Bali! The doorbell rings as they wait for their taxi. The police detective at the door thinks Henry was soliciting in the men's room of the local pub actually, he was sitting in the loo counting the cash. The bell rings again. Another detective arrives thinking Henry is dead; a man with bullet holes in his head and Henry's briefcase were found in the Thames. Henry's inept attempts to extricate himself from this impossible situation lead to increasingly hysterical situations.

Monday 12th March 2018 at 7.30pm

Banbury Operatic Society are thrilled to announce that we will be one of the first groups in the country to perform the musical hit Priscilla Queen of the Desert!
Want to be involved? Then come along to our launch night on Monday 12th March 2018 at 7.30pm at Wykham Theatre, Banbury Academy. Open to new and returning members! Learn how you can get involved! Here you will meet the team, learn about their vision for the show and pick up audition pieces!

The show promises to be one of BOS' most ambitious shows ever so why not get invovled with this spectacular event?
One of the most popular touring shows in UK history has JUST been made available to amateur groups. With hit songs that EVERYONE knows, including I Will Survive, It's Raining Men, Don't Leave Me This Way and Boogie Wonderland, this hilarious and colourful show follows two drag queens and a transgender woman, who contract to perform a drag show at a resort in Alice Springs, a resort town in the remote Australian desert. As they head west from Sydney aboard their lavender bus, Priscilla, the three friends come to the forefront of a comedy of errors, encountering a number of strange characters, as well as incidents of homophobia, whilst widening comfort zones and finding new horizons.
The hit songs are sung by the entire female and male ensemble with lead vocals often coming from the three female 'divas' as well as the men so there is LOTS of opportunity for all involved to sing and dance to what will undoubtedly be a VERY popular show. The show is one of the most popular and modern musicals currently available to amateur groups and is a true feel good show.

Open Auditions for The Importance of Being Earnest by Oscar Wilde Director Sarah Benjamin
We are holding 2 audition dates Thursday 2 march and Tuesday 6 march please attend one of these dates .
Auditions are open to all and are informal taking the form of a read through of the script.
Show dates June 21 22 and 23 2018 at TADS theatre Toddington
Rehearsing Tuesday and Thursday nights from early march plus the occasional Sunday afternoon

The Importance of Being Earnest is the most renowned of Oscar Wilde’s comedies. It’s the story of two bachelors, John ‘Jack’ Worthing and Algernon ‘Algy’ Moncrieff, who create alter egos named Ernest to escape their tiresome lives. They attempt to win the hearts of two women who, conveniently, claim to only love men called Ernest. The pair struggle to keep up with their own stories and become tangled in a tale of deception, disguise and misadventure. The elaborate plot ridicules Victorian sensibilities with some of the best loved, and indeed bizarre, characters to be found on the stage. Its alternative title A trivial Comedy for serious people

Characters - playing ages are approximate
John worthing ; age 20s also known as Earnest /jack
Algernon Moncrieff age 20s best friend to John
Rev Canon Chasuble age 30-50 clergyman has a touching romance with muss prism
Lane manservant any age typical butler
Lady Bracknell age 40-50 plus mother to Gwendoline Aunt to Algernon very impressive domineering lady head of the family
Hon Gwendolyn Fairfax age teen to 20s ward to Jack slightly more sophisticated than Cecily
Cecily Cardew age teen to 20s innocent love interest
Miss Prism Governess. 30-50 plus

Bell, Book & Candle
by John Van Druten
Director Linda Dowdall


Contact: For more information email Linda at lindadowdall60@gmail.com


AUDITIONS MONDAY 12th MARCH 7.30pm
Performance: Tuesday 10th - Saturday 14th July


I discovered a copy of this play when sorting out donations for the SDS archives based upstairs at The Quay. SDS did this play back in 1974, directed no less by our very own Liz Cole. The original professional production of the play was first performed in the fifties by Rex Harrison and Lilli Palmer and, like that SDS version, was firmly set in London. When the professional production moved to New York, so did the setting, but as it matters very little to the plot of the play, I am taking the liberty of moving it back to the UK for my production. The action will take place in the unspecified not too distant past to allow for some leeway with the set and costumes. It is said that Bell, Book and Candle was the inspiration for the TV series Bewitched. BGillian Holroyd is a thoroughly modern witch but if she falls in love she will lose her powers. When, guided by her cat Pyewacket, she casts a spell to make her attractive neighbour in the flat upstairs fall in love with her, she is unprepared for the outcome. And, as he discovers her deception, is she about to lose everything? BI am looking for two women and three men as outlined below.
Gillian (25/30s upwards) - Begins as a feisty, modern, self-confident witch, used to her own way, who is out to get her man. She undergoes a personality change when she realises all has not gone according to plan
Tony (30/40s upwards) - Self- assured businessman, when he falls for Gillian he has problems dealing with what has happened. Gets very angry later
Queenie (older woman) - Bit scatty, eccentric but mischievous with good sense of fun
Nick (20s upwards - younger than Gillian) - Gillian’s brother - charming, easy manner (possible slightly camp), likes himself and his image
Professor Sidney (40+) - Author who knows only a little about his subject but thinks he does, bookish, dishevelled, rumpled and appears slightly tipsy
Scripts are available for short term loan from the Quay Box Office

For further information and details of audition pieces, contact Director Chrissie Garrett on 01295 810412 or 07557 023144 or by email to chrissiegarrett@btinternet.com


Auditions will be held on Thursday 22nd March 2018 7:30pm
Production dates are 11th - 14th July 2018 at The Mill Arts Centre. You will need to be available from Sunday 8 July 2018 for Technical and Dress Rehearsals. You do not need to be a member to audition but will be required to join if cast. See our website for further details on BCP membership. Rehearsals (24 in all) will be on Mondays and Thursdays, 7.30pm-9.30pm, starting after Easter 2018.


This wickedly funny, poignant play is set in 1934 on a small island off the West coast of Ireland. The arrival of a Hollywood film crew on a neighbouring island sets the youngsters' hearts racing with the prospect of escape and a new life in the USA.
Roles available:
Kate : 50-70 yrs
Eileen : 50-70 yrs
Johnnypateenmike : 50-70 yrs
Billy : 16-25 yrs
Helen : 16-25 yrs
Barty : 16-25 yrs
Babbybobby : 20-60 yrs
Doctor : 50-70 yrs
Mammy : 60-80 years

The fabulous character parts are raw, hilarious, challenging, irreverent and realistic, requiring a creative approach and, of course, an Irish accent. This black, tragi-comedy is about getting the audience to laugh and cry at the same time. It is a play to challenge concepts of political correctness; to question who, in fact, are the people who don’t fit in, and a hope of replacing pain and loneliness with laughter and love.

Measure for Measure by William Shakespeare

Audition: Sunday 25 March 2018 7.30pm
Performances: Friday 6 - Sunday 8 July, Wednesday 11 - Saturday 14 July at Little Oak Wood Open Air Arena, Addison Way, NW11 6QS
Rehearsals will be on Sunday afternoons and Tuesday and Thursday evenings from 8 May, extending to Wednesday evenings from 27 June. They will be held at the Free Church Hall to begin with, moving to the Wood as the light and weather permits. The chorus will not need to attend weekday rehearsals until 26 June.
Please note that, though you do not have to join the GST to audition, all actors in a GST show are required to be members.


Measure for Measure is very much a play for our times. With themes of corruption, abuse of power and sexual exploitation it holds a mirror to our world as much as the 17th century.
Duke Vincentio absents himself from court leaving Angelo to rule as his deputy. Angelo condemns Claudio to death for getting Juliet pregnant: they are betrothed but not yet married. Claudio’s sister Isabella pleads for her brother’s life; Angelo will relent only if she gives herself to him. Scenes of intense emotion are interspersed with an earthy comic sub-plot in which Mistress Overdone and her side-kick Pompey navigate their way round Angelo’s edict closing down the brothels. All this is observed by Vincentio, who has disguised himself as a friar and return at the end to bring all to book.
Both serious and comic roles are multi-faceted, providing excellent opportunities for characterisation. All the cast will have plenty to do, doubling parts where possible to create a tight ensemble. We will need a chorus of all ages to play courtiers, citizens, guards and other characters.

CHARACTERS:
Vincentio - The Duke, insightful, scheming, perhaps weaker than he thinks
Angelo - His Deputy, not simply wicked but aware of his faults
Escalus - A senior courtier
Claudio - A young man in love, unable to comprehend his sister’s moral stance
Isabella - His sister, intends to become a nun, fired by righteousness
Juliet - Claudio’s betrothed
Lucio - “A Fantastic”: a colourful character with a big mouth
Provost - A judicial officer struggling with the demands of his office
Mariana - Betrothed to Angelo, but then rejected by him
Mistress Overdone - “A Bawd”: another colourful character
Pompey - Mistress Overdone’s brothel-keeping partner
Elbow - An educationally challenged constable
Froth - A foolish gentleman
Abhorson - An executioner who takes pride in his profession
Barnadine - A depressed prisoner.

There are a number of smaller speaking parts: a nun, a friar, officers, servants and gentlemen. These can be cast from the company or be taken by anyone who would prefer a smaller part. Some of these could be played by children aged 13+.
The audition pieces are available on the GST website

Contact: admin@gloc.org


Audition Dates: 31st January and 3rd February
Performance Dates: Performances will take place from 30 May to 02 June 2018 at the Bridewell Theatre, central London and the production will transfer to the Harrogate G&S Festival in August.


Grosvenor Light Opera Company are actively recruiting principals and chorus for their upcoming production of Gilbert & Sullivan’s Princess Ida. Rehearsals take place on Wednesday nights (and the occasional Sunday) in central London, starting at the beginning of February. Performances will take place from 30 May to 02 June 2018 at the Bridewell Theatre and the production will transfer to the Harrogate G&S Festival in August.BOur fully staged productions with orchestra offer an excellent platform for young professional singers looking to develop their performing experience
We will be holding an open rehearsal on Wednesday 24th January at St. Gabriel's Hall and auditions for principal roles will take place on Wednesday 31st January and Saturday 3rd February (also at St Gabriel’s). No need to audition for chorus parts!

Auditions will last around ten minutes consist of a song of the candidate’s own choice and an extract of spoke libretto, followed by a brief chat. Songs suggested below are for guidance only – candidates should feel free to choose any appropriate piece that shows them off to the best of their ability. In the interests of time, however, please select a section of around 2 minutes in duration.

Roles:

Hildebrand – baritone (Bb2 – F4)
Excellent diction required but still very much a lyric rather than patter role.
Audition song: Act 2 Finale “Some years ago No doubt you know” (either verse)

Hilarion* - lyric tenor (B2 – Bb4)
Audition song: Act 2 Finale “Whom thou hast chain’d”

Cyril* - light lyric tenor (C3 – A4)
Comic role but requires lyric singing. Ideally a lighter and higher than voice Hilarion, however we could work around this.
Audition song: Act 2 “Would you know the kind of maid” (either verse)

Florian* - lyric baritone (Ab2 – F4)
Audition song: Act 2 “I am a maiden” (verse 3)

*These three roles include extensive ensemble singing and require excellent musicianship. In the score, Cyril is the higher of the two tenors, however this can be adapted depending on casting.
Audition song: Act 1 “If you give me your attention” (any verse)

Arac, Guron, Scynthius - bass baritone (F2 – E4)
In the score Arac takes the lion’s share of the solo writing, however this is occasionally divided between the three. Solo passages are qasi-handelian, requiring a good top and decent agility.
Audition song: Act 3 “This helmet I suppose” (verses 3 and 4)

Princess Ida - dramatic soprano (D4 – Bb5)
Note: Ida is less florid than many other G&S soprano roles, instead demanding a fuller sound.
Audition song: Act 2 “Minerva/Oh, goddess wise”

Lady Blanche - contralto or mezzo (G3 – E5)
Audition song: Act 2 “Now wouldn’t you like to rule the roost” (either verse)

Lady Psyche† - soprano or high mezzo (C4 – Ab5)
Audition song: Act 2 “A Lady fair” (any verse)

Melisa† - mezzo soprano or soprano (C4 – Eb5[G5])
The part has a fairly small range and can be done by any voice, but it needs a youthful quality.
Audition song: Act 2 “Now wouldn’t you like to rule the roost” (either verse)

†Note: ensemble lines in “The woman of the wisest wit” can be swapped depending on casting.

Iver’s award-winning amateur theatre company The Richings Players are delighted to announce their 2018 summer production, the much-loved classic tale of Mr Toad and his band of river bank friends in “The Wind in the Willows”.

This delightful and ingenious adaption of Kenneth Grahame's classic tale of river-bank antics by Alan Bennett with original and enchanting songs by Jeremy Sams created a sensation at the National Theatre in the 1990s and follows the adventures of Mr Toad, Ratty, Mole and Badger. Along the way, Toad finds himself in prison and manages to escape, but not before Toad Hall, his pride and joy, has been overrun by the wicked Weasels. Thanks to the efforts of his kind and concerned friends, all ends happily, after an exciting battle to regain Toad's home…but will Toady learn his lesson?

The play will be directed by RP Vice-Chairman Will Torrent who last directed “Robin Hood” in 2011. Ever since Will saw the National’s magical production at The Old Vic in the 1990s, he has always has always loved the story and has always wanted the Players to perform it. He will be joined by Erica Tugwell as Musical Director and Phoebe Pearson-Hall as Choreographer. With lots of parts for children and adults alike, they’ll be something for everyone especially the audience!

The Read-Through will take place on Friday 9th February at St Leonard’s Hall in Richings Park starting at 8pm and Auditions for the Principal roles (ages 14+) will take place on Monday 19th February at Coppins (Iver Village Hall) at 7.30pm.

Auditions: FEB 19 Mon 20:00 & FEB 22 Thurs 20:00
Production week - Weds 23 to Sat 26 May, at the Headgate Theatre, Colchester


Colchester Theatre Group's next production is The Foreigner, a fun, two act comedy by American playwright Larry Shue and directed for CTG by Elaine Lloyd.
The story takes place in a fishing lodge in rural Tillman County, Georgia, where two Englishmen, Froggy and Charlie, arrive as guests. The shy Charlie agreed to accompany Froggy on the trip after his sick wife begged him to go. When people at the Lodge try to talk to Charlie, he remains silent: he is very shy, depressed about his wife’s illness and cannot find the words to reply. Froggy claims that Charlie cannot talk because he is a “foreigner” from an exotic country and he doesn’t understand English. Taking the explanation that he’s a non-English speaker as fact, the Lodge’s guests quickly begin revealing their secrets, and Charlie soon discovers scandals amongst some of the local residents.


Characters
Staff Sgt “Froggy” LeSueur – Age late forties
Male Lead – British accent
Charlie Baker – Age mid forties
Male Lead – British accent

The Cripple of Innishmaan by Martin McDonagh

The Cripple of Innishmaan by Martin McDonagh



A Play-reading Tuesday 20th February 2018
Members' Auditions Tuesday 27th February 2018
Open Auditions Thursday 29th February 2018
Performance: 11-14 July 2018


In 1934, on a small island off the West coast of Ireland, the arrival of a Hollywood film crew (who we never see) on a neighbouring island gives local youngsters the chance to escape the island and head for the USA.
Local disabled orphan, Billy, able and bright, and in love with local girl Helen, is cared for by two aged aunts. He is derided by the locals (and his aunts) as no-one understands him. His aunts protect him from discovering his parents tried to drown him at birth. Billy, desperate to audition, to break away from the bitter tedium of his daily life, persuades a local fisherman to take him to the neighbouring island by telling him he is dying of TB.
Billy is cast in the film and goes to the USA. He discovers Hollywood alone is no better than Innishmaan alone so returns home. Helen finally agrees to go out with him. Ironically, at the end of the tale, he ‘gets the girl’ only to discover he really does have TB.

The characters are funny, alcoholic, vicious, bigoted and cruel, and all crippled – one physically, others emotionally. This bleakly comic tale, with vivid images of all aspects of human life, where truth is uncovered gradually, successfully plucks at your heartstrings with deep, dark and powerful humour.
The Cripple of Innishmaan will be performed at The Mill Arts Centre, Banbury 11-14 July 2018. Directed by Chrissie Garrett.

Synopsis
Alec Frith runs a bookshop and lives in the flat above with his wife, Maggie. He is having an affair with his glamorous assistant, Liz, with whom he has arranged an illicit holiday while his wife is away with friends. With everything so carefully planned what could possibly go wrong?
Well, his cantankerous mother arrives, having ‘escaped’ from her care home, followed by his son and daughter, whom he is relying upon to manoeuvre the situation to his advantage, who bring along their own problems and are definitely more a hindrance than a help. He does get to Marbella but with whom?

They’re back!
After the fun and frolic of their adventures in Ladies’ Day as seen at the Quay back in March 2017, Pearl, Jan, Linda and Shelley return in the sequel ‘Ladies Down Under’ which, as its name suggests, follows the ladies on an Australian sojourn.
If you saw Ladies’ Day you’ll know the quartet ended up winning a ‘lorra lolly’ on a six horse accumulator bet during Ladies’ Day at Royal Ascot and, some eighteen months later, are about to depart for a four week mega holiday to Australia when Ladies Down Under kicks off.
As with Ladies’ Day the foursome get up to plenty of high jinks and encounter a variety of men they have fun with, laugh with and (maybe) love with.A brief run down of who’s who:
Pearl - mid fifties; funny, strong and kind hearted; the glue that holds the group together.
Jan - late forties/early fifties; single mother, firm friends with Pearl.
Linda - mid to late twenties maybe early thirties; quieter member of the foursome but strong willed and makes friends easily.
Shelley - mid to late twenties maybe early thirties; brash, funny at times but with a softer side.
All the women used to work together in a Hull fish packing factory, but since Ladies’ Day Pearl has taken early retirement and Shelley left soon after the women won their six figure sum.
Joe - supervisor at the fish packing factory; Jan’s love interest and nearing the end of a year long sabbatical in Australia when the ladies arrive.
Tom - volunteer fire fighter.
Bill and Ben - two BA flight attendants.
Shane - an Aussie surfer.
Charlie - an ageing English aristocratic hippy type; has lived in Oz for many years.
Danny - an Aussie traveller.
‘Koala Bare’ [sic] and ‘Bondi Bitch’ - two Aussie drag queens.

We Are Three Sisters by Blake Morrison



Contact: If you would like more details or are interested in taking a role, but are unable to attend the audition, please contact the Play & Stage committee (pscc@wgrsoc.org.uk).


Auditions: Tuesday 9 January 7:30pm
Performance: 23 to 30 June 2018 at Wilmslow Green Room Theatre
6, 7 July 2018 at Quarry Bank, Styal


Poet, playwright and novelist Blake Morrison evokes the lives of the Brontë sisters, with a nod to Chekhov’s Three Sisters.
Against the backdrop of a windswept northern village, three remarkable young women live their lives brightly.
In Haworth in the 1840s, in a gloomy parsonage, where there are neither curtains nor comforts, Charlotte, Anne and Emily Brontë light up their world with outspoken wit, aspirations, dreams and ideas. And throughout their confined lives intensely lived… they write.
With a touch of poetic licence, Morrison shows us the overwhelming humanity, charged emotions and brooding unease which characterise the Brontë household – and that of Chekhov’s Three Sisters.

How did Patrick Roarke die? Inspector Ruffing needs to get to the bottom of this bizarre murder in a gothic comedy murder mystery that will have you scratching your brain in bewilderment, and laughing uproariously as the women of the house send the Inspector up the garden path in their attempts to mislead and befuddle him.

This show has some particularly brilliant female roles as all of the women are confident and intriguing in their own way so get in touch if you want out find out more!!

Characters:
Inspector Ruffing (35+): No-nonsense, world-weary, downtrodden and determined police inspector sent to investigate a murder in a stately home. He has a dark past and a tendency to drink a little too much. This is a BIG learn for whoever gets it so be prepared!
Mrs Ravenscroft (35-60): Lady of the house, attractive and demanding. Will do anything necessary to protect her daughter.
Gillian (17 ish): Mrs Ravenscroft’s daughter, seemingly innocent, manipulative, very… odd. Gillian switches between child-like and a little too mature.
Marcy (20-35): European governess of Gillian with a mysterious past. Beautiful and alluring, Ruffing can’t help but be drawn to her, but did she push Patrick down the stairs as she claimed?
Dolly (20-40): The housemaid, Dolly is common-as-muck and not very bright either. Could Dolly be hiding something too? (This is a GREAT comedy role)
Mrs French (40+): The cook, Mrs French is no-nonsense and fed up with having a maid as useless as Dolly. In this house, you never know what secrets people are hiding though and Mrs French seems to know more than most….

All of the characters get a some great comedy moments and will be on stage at all times.

Please note, all ages are guidelines and if someone isn’t the ‘right’ age, but still suits the role, then I’m fine with that!

Friday 19th January 2018 7:45 pm - First Rehearsal
Rehearsals on Tuesdays and Fridays
Performers must be at least 16 years old


Synopsis:
Three school leavers, Salty, Hobby and Gail Saunders perform to an audience an account of their time in secondary school (given the name 'Whitewall' for their performance), specifically their time with Mr Jeff Nixon, the new drama teacher who ignites their passion for the stage with his idealism and belief that all children should be treated equally. The children mention that the names of the characters have been changed: Mr Nixon's real name is Mr Harrison, mentioned at the beginning. At the end of the play he leaves Whitewall High School to teach at St George's, another school with much better teachers.
It is a play within a play in which three students put on a performance to their teachers. Everything in the play is reduced to the bare essentials, with very little set and the three actors playing twenty other parts. However, Godber has said that it could also be performed with twenty different actors so the director, Tom, is looking to cast at least seven people.

When We Are Married byJ B Priestley

When We Are Married byJ B Priestley



Contact: via website or social media


Meetings will be at 7.30pm at our rehearsal rooms on 9th, 11th and 16th January.

Our next production is J B Priestley's 'Yorkshire farce' When We Are Married. This fantastic play visits three couples celebrating their shared 25th wedding anniversary - or at least they think they are. A startling revelation shakes the foundations of their marriages, and a series of unmanageable characters and situations threatens to expose the couples to scandal!

This great play has a big cast, 8 men and 7 women, of varying ages. The three couples at the centre of the story need to have playing ages of over 40, and there are many other roles.
As well as the cast, we are looking for people to take on all the backstage roles so if you're interested in helping with sets, props, costumes, hair and makeup, marketing, graphic design, producing and anything else, then please do come along.
The focus of our first meetings will be on finding our cast and selecting a director, but we want you all to come along - you get a chance to see what the play is about, and we need to gather details of everyone who wants to take part.
Now is a great time to get involved - it's a new year and an ideal time to try something new! We're a friendly bunch and always welcome new members. Casting is done by informal readings where we take it in turns to read different parts while sitting in a big circle. We don't ask you to learn a part and stand up on your own so don't be too nervous! As readings progress we may start acting out bits of scenes in groups, but it's very informal.

The Memory Of Water by Shelagh Stephenson

Information Evening - Weds 17th January, 8pm
venue: Large Barn Hall, Amersham Community Centre
Casting Evening - Weds 24th January, 8pm
venue: Amersham Community Centre
Show Dates: Thursday 17th, Friday 18th & Saturday 19th May 2018


Three estranged sisters meet on the eve of their mother’s funeral to argue and misremember in Shelagh Stephenson’s examination of the structures of memory and family.
As they attempt to organise her funeral, their memories of their childhood run together and the secrets of their separate lives are revealed. Theresa, owner of an alternative therapy business, is angry that she was left to care for their dying mother. Mary, a doctor, is still struggling with a deep loss from her past. Catherine seeks attention through a succession of short-term partners.
When the play opened at the Hampstead Theatre, London, in 1996 it was awarded the Olivier Award for Best Comedy. But it is melancholic too, as the emotional bruises of the sisters’ childhood emerge. Memories fade, blur and persist as the sisters bicker, watched over by the ghost of the mother to whom they are preparing to say goodbye.

first rehearsal and read through

SOS is very proud to have secured the exclusive performing rights in the South for Joan Littlewood's 'Oh What a Lovely War' to mark the centenary of the end of World War 1. Featuring some fantastic music from the era (with satirical re-writes and ad libs) OWALW is as hilarious as it is moving, and as fun to perform in as it is important in its central message.

Come and join us at our first read through, meet the directing team and receive all the details about rehearsals and auditions. Auditions will take place on Wednesday 7th February and will be open to members of SOS. Pre-casting auditions to join SOS can be arranged through secretary@sotonopera.org or at one of the pre-audition rehearsals.

Director Lisa Gilmour and MD Brigitte Lavoie are looking for a core 15 strong ensemble chorus who will multi role a series of different colourful characters and a full backing chorus for the big show numbers and set pieces. So if you want a key role (including for example Field Marshal Haig or Emmeline Pankhurst) or one of the many smaller roles there should be something for everyone!

DON'T DRESS FOR DINNER!

Contact: via website or social media


Read through's are Wednesday 24th January and Sunday 28th January at The Victoria Hall, Oakham at 7.30pm.

FIRST READ THROUGH TONIGHT - 7.30pm @ VICTORIA HALL, OAKHAM
It's time to start work on our next production - Don't Dress For Dinner!
The play is a hilarious farce, and here's is a brief synopsis;

Bernard is planning a romantic weekend with his chic Parisian mistress in his charming converted French farmhouse, whilst his wife, Jacqueline, is away. He has arranged for a cordon bleu cook to prepare gourmet delights, and has invited his best friend, Robert, along too to provide the alibi. It's foolproof; what could possibly go wrong? Well.... suppose Robert turns up not realizing quite why he has been invited. Suppose Robert and Jacqueline are secret lovers, and consequently determined that Jacqueline will NOT leave for the weekend. Suppose the cook has to pretend to be the mistress and the mistress is unable to cook. Suppose everyone's alibi gets confused with everyone else's. An evening of hilarious confusion ensues as Bernard and Robert improvise at breakneck speed.

Character breakdowns:

Bernard (Lead): Male, 20-50
Jacqueline's husband, handsome businessman, flirtatious, dapper, self-assured, country gentleman.

Jacqueline (Lead): Female, 20-50
Bernard's wife, lovely, assertive, romantic, intelligent, a beautiful modern woman.

Robert (Supporting): Male, 20-50
Bernard's friend and Jacqueline's lover, handsome, reserved, seems like an all-around nice guy but is a scoundrel.

Suzette (Supporting): Female, 20-50
The cook, friendly, working class, funny, great body, a swan beneath the duckling exterior.

Suzanne (Supporting): Female, 20-50
Bernard's mistress, a fashion model with a great body, chic, stylish, easily flustered.

Georges (Supporting): Male, 20-50
Suzette's husband, big, strong, protective of Suzette, not one to indulge in fooling around.

New, experienced, young or mature - Come on down for a fun evening!

"My darling boy, you won't last very long in this world if you don't know how to spot a witch when you see one..."
There's nothing a witch hates more than children, and there's no creature deadlier than a witch. The monstrous Grand High Witch has come up with a devilish plan to do away with every child in the world, and all that stands in her way is a young boy and his wise old grandmother. It's going to take all their wit and cunning to save the day - if the witches don't get them first!
With its large cast of oddball characters, its magic, monsters and mice (yes, mice), we want to stage the ultimate children's fairy tale, scary and grotesque, comedic and heartfelt and, above all, fun!
For a show with such diverse and colourful characters for both male and female performers, there are no ends to how each role should or could be played! We aim to develop characters in an inventive and playful way to match with the genre. The more eccentric and fairy tale like, the better!
DIRECTORS: Alex Farley and Tom Wright

Contact: admin@gloc.org


Audition Dates: 31st January and 3rd February
Performance Dates: Performances will take place from 30 May to 02 June 2018 at the Bridewell Theatre, central London and the production will transfer to the Harrogate G&S Festival in August.


Grosvenor Light Opera Company are actively recruiting principals and chorus for their upcoming production of Gilbert & Sullivan’s Princess Ida. Rehearsals take place on Wednesday nights (and the occasional Sunday) in central London, starting at the beginning of February. Performances will take place from 30 May to 02 June 2018 at the Bridewell Theatre and the production will transfer to the Harrogate G&S Festival in August.BOur fully staged productions with orchestra offer an excellent platform for young professional singers looking to develop their performing experience
We will be holding an open rehearsal on Wednesday 24th January at St. Gabriel's Hall and auditions for principal roles will take place on Wednesday 31st January and Saturday 3rd February (also at St Gabriel’s). No need to audition for chorus parts!

Auditions will last around ten minutes consist of a song of the candidate’s own choice and an extract of spoke libretto, followed by a brief chat. Songs suggested below are for guidance only – candidates should feel free to choose any appropriate piece that shows them off to the best of their ability. In the interests of time, however, please select a section of around 2 minutes in duration.

Roles:

Hildebrand – baritone (Bb2 – F4)
Excellent diction required but still very much a lyric rather than patter role.
Audition song: Act 2 Finale “Some years ago No doubt you know” (either verse)

Hilarion* - lyric tenor (B2 – Bb4)
Audition song: Act 2 Finale “Whom thou hast chain’d”

Cyril* - light lyric tenor (C3 – A4)
Comic role but requires lyric singing. Ideally a lighter and higher than voice Hilarion, however we could work around this.
Audition song: Act 2 “Would you know the kind of maid” (either verse)

Florian* - lyric baritone (Ab2 – F4)
Audition song: Act 2 “I am a maiden” (verse 3)

*These three roles include extensive ensemble singing and require excellent musicianship. In the score, Cyril is the higher of the two tenors, however this can be adapted depending on casting.
Audition song: Act 1 “If you give me your attention” (any verse)

Arac, Guron, Scynthius - bass baritone (F2 – E4)
In the score Arac takes the lion’s share of the solo writing, however this is occasionally divided between the three. Solo passages are qasi-handelian, requiring a good top and decent agility.
Audition song: Act 3 “This helmet I suppose” (verses 3 and 4)

Princess Ida - dramatic soprano (D4 – Bb5)
Note: Ida is less florid than many other G&S soprano roles, instead demanding a fuller sound.
Audition song: Act 2 “Minerva/Oh, goddess wise”

Lady Blanche - contralto or mezzo (G3 – E5)
Audition song: Act 2 “Now wouldn’t you like to rule the roost” (either verse)

Lady Psyche† - soprano or high mezzo (C4 – Ab5)
Audition song: Act 2 “A Lady fair” (any verse)

Melisa† - mezzo soprano or soprano (C4 – Eb5[G5])
The part has a fairly small range and can be done by any voice, but it needs a youthful quality.
Audition song: Act 2 “Now wouldn’t you like to rule the roost” (either verse)

†Note: ensemble lines in “The woman of the wisest wit” can be swapped depending on casting.

Actresses Needed for Play in Walthamstow

My name is Jessica and I am setting up an drama society in Leytonstone for my production, In a Land of Oz which will be performed on the 11th, 12th, 18th and 19th of May 2018 in Ye Olde Rose and Crown in Walthamstow.

I am basically calling out for actresses to play the roles attached: Scenes with Amber & Chris
Scenes with young Dorothy

"In a Land of Oz" Dorothy, a woman in her early 30s from San Diego who goes to her mother's house and has received a bag of her stuff from high school which fills her mind with bad memories.

She has autistic traits but was not diagnosed with autism because the resources were not provided to her parents when she was in school. The majority of the play takes place in her bedroom where she is confronted by her younger self and two characters from her favourite book ‘The Wizard of Oz’. When Dorothy is able to accept that she has issues the setting changes to a black set where she finally discusses her issue with a psychologist and also when she speaks to a past classmate who has autism.

The play focuses on her issues with the therapy sessions she had with her psychologist as an adolescent, her relationship with her boyfriend, Chris and her own insecurities.

A Perfect Wedding by Robin Hawdon

Contact: via website or social media


Wednesday 31st Jan 2018 at 20:00–22:30

This show has provoked waves of laughter in literally hundreds of productions around Europe and across America, and is due to be made into a Hollywood film. It is that rare combination - a riotous comedy and a touching love story at the same time.
An appalling situation. A bridegroom wakes on his wedding morning in his own bridal suite, with his bride-to-be about to arrive any moment, and finds a strange girl in bed beside him. What's more an extremely attractive girl whom, in the depths of his post stag-night hangover, he can't remotely remember even having been introduced to. Worse - during the ensuing panic to get the stranger dressed and out of the way, the bride arrives and the girl is trapped in the bathroom.
The only way out of the dilemma is to persuade the best man to pretend that the hidden girl is his girl friend. Then the problem is that the best man’s real girl friend has to be kept ignorant of the fact. By the time the bride's parents and half the hotel staff get in on the act, the chaos reaches nuclear proportions!
