PRIDE & PREJUDICE
Audition dates: Tuesday 4th July – 7pm Thursday 6th July – 7pm Production Dates: 23rd – 30th September 2023
The Crescent is proud to bring Jane Austen’s classic novel to the stage. When two rich young gentlemen move to town, they don’t go unnoticed – especially when Mrs Bennett is determined to get her five daughters married. In a period when a woman’s one possible career is matrimony, to be a wife was success and anything else was failure. But love, as Jane and Elizabeth Bennett soon discover, is rarely straightforward. It’s only a matter of time until their own small worlds are turned upside down and they discover that first impressions can be the most misleading of all. I am looking for a cast of imaginative and energetic actors that will help bring these delightful characters to life. It will be a production that will require great energy from its cast; a wonderful play full of beautiful moments of drama, woven together with large ensemble scenes full of fun, movement and dance. There are a variety of exciting roles available that will work together as an ensemble to tell this classic story boldly on our wonderful main stage. Characters Elizabeth Bennet – The second daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Bennet, Elizabeth is the most intelligent and sensible of the five Bennet sisters. She is well read and quick-witted, with a tongue that occasionally proves too sharp for her own good. *** The role requires a scene including some intimacy with another actor. All theatre guidelines regarding intimacy will be followed. Fitzwilliam Darcy – A wealthy gentleman, the master of Pemberley, and the nephew of Lady Catherine de Bourgh. Though Darcy is intelligent and honest, his excess of pride causes him to look down on his social inferiors. Over the course of the play, he tempers his class-consciousness and learns to admire and love Elizabeth for her strong character. *** The role requires a scene including some intimacy with another actor. All theatre guidelines regarding intimacy will be followed. Jane Bennet – The eldest Bennet sister. Jane is more reserved and gentler than Elizabeth. The easy pleasantness with which she and Bingley interact contrasts starkly with the mutual distaste that marks the encounters between Elizabeth and Darcy. Charles Bingley – Darcy’s considerably wealthy best friend. Bingley’s purchase of Netherfield, an estate near the Bennet’s, serves as the impetus for the novel. He is a genial, well-intentioned gentleman, whose easy-going nature contrasts with Darcy’s initially discourteous demeanour. He is blissfully uncaring about class differences. Mr. Bennet – The patriarch of the Bennet family, a gentleman of modest income with five unmarried daughters. Mr. Bennet has a sarcastic, cynical sense of humour that he uses to purposefully irritate his wife. Mrs. Bennet – Mr. Bennet’s wife, a foolish, noisy woman whose only goal in life is to see her daughters married. Because of her low breeding and often unbecoming behaviour, Mrs. Bennet often repels the very suitors whom she tries to attract for her daughters. Lydia Bennet – The youngest Bennet sister, she is gossipy, immature, and self-involved. Unlike Elizabeth, Lydia flings herself headlong into romance and ends up running off with Wickham. Mary Bennet – The middle Bennet sister, bookish and pedantic. Kitty Bennet – Kitty is the second youngest daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Bennet. Kitty is in the shadow of her youngest sister, Lydia, often simply repeating or supporting Lydia’s own opinions Charlotte Lucas – Elizabeth’s dear friend. Pragmatic where Elizabeth is romantic, Charlotte does not view love as the most vital component of a marriage. George Wickham – A handsome, fortune-hunting militia officer. Wickham’s good looks and charm attract Elizabeth initially, but Darcy’s revelation about Wickham’s disreputable past clues her in to his true nature and simultaneously draws her closer to Darcy. Mr. Collins – A pompous, generally idiotic clergyman who stands to inherit Mr. Bennet’s property. He is the worst combination of snobbish and obsequious. Lady Catherine De Bourgh – A rich, bossy noblewoman; Mr. Collins’s patron and Darcy’s aunt. Lady Catherine epitomizes class snobbery, especially in her attempts to order the middle-class Elizabeth away from her well-bred nephew. Miss Caroline Bingley – Bingley’s snobbish sister. Colonel Fitzwilliam – Darcy’s well-mannered and pleasant cousin, who is interested in Elizabeth, but who needs to marry someone with money. Georgiana Darcy – Darcy’s shy but warm-hearted sister. Mr. and Mrs. Gardiner – Mrs. Bennet’s intelligent and cultivated brother and sister-in-law. Other characters will be played by members of the cast. There will be short scenes available soon (on this audition page) for you to look at before the audition but please don’t feel you have to learn them beforehand. You may be asked to read alternative scenes at the audition depending on the roles you wish to be considered for.

*Save the date: Urinetown Intro Night* Come along to our intro night on Monday 26 June at 8pm at Springfield Parish Centre for our November production of Urinetown the Musical. This is a chance to meet the Director and creative team, and other auditionees, and hear about the vision for the show and its characters. All new, existing and returning members welcome! Urinetown is set in a Gotham style world, where the water supply is governed by a huge corporation and the citizens have to pay to pee (yep really). As the CEO of Urine Good Company plans to further strip the city of its rights, one underdog leads a revolution to overthrow evil and authority. Urinetown is a fun satirical look at society and our future, as well as being a love letter to the musical theatre genre in the form of a grenade. Springers AODS is a friendly and inclusive dramatics society based in Springfield, Chelmsford. We rehearse Mondays and Wednesdays from 8pm, and one Sunday. You can find out more and contact us via our website: Welcome to Springers, amateur theatre group in Chelmsford
