Company by Stephen Sondheim

Company by Stephen Sondheim

Audition date: Sunday, 13th June from 10 a.m.
Back-up audition day / Recalls as required: Sunday 20th June from 10am
Playing dates: 1st – 11th Dec 2021


I am thrilled to have been asked by The Loft Theatre to direct Company. From musical theatre’s most renowned composer, Company is largely regarded as a trailblazer of the dark-comedy, modern-musical genre and the winner of 7 Tony Awards including Best Musical, Best Score, Best Lyrics and Best Book.
On the night of his 35th birthday, confirmed bachelor Robert contemplates his unmarried state. Over the course of a series of dinners, drinks, and even a wedding, his friends — “those good and crazy people [his] married friends” — explain the pros and cons of taking on a spouse. The habitually single Robert is forced to question his adamant retention of bachelorhood during a hilarious array of interactions.
Company features a brilliantly brisk and energetic score containing many of Stephen Sondheim’s best known songs. The strength of the piece lies in its vivid yet real characters, meaning impressive technical aspects aren’t necessary to convey the story. It can be told as effectively with a cavalcade of automated set pieces as it can with a chair or two. Every audience member will see reflections of themselves in at least one of the characters on stage.
I am very excited to be working with Alice Brown as Musical Director. Alice has a Masters in Music from Birmingham and is passionate about Sondheim.

Please audition for 1 character only and prepare the song(s) and dialogue for that character – available at the link below:

1.00 p.m. Professor Bhaer. Laurie.
2.30 p.m. Marmee and Aunt March.

Though we will try to stick to the schedule, please be patient if times vary.
28th June 2021: Cast meet and read through Act 1, discussing story characters, development etc.
30th June 2021: Read Act II.

Rehearsals:
In July we will be doing music on Mondays and Wednesdays (fitting around family and holiday commitments). You will not be required for all.
From early August onward, Monday and Wednesday (and Fridays from October).
All at BOS Hall, All Saints Terrace, Bridgwater.
Performances: Monday 22nd November – Saturday 27th (inc. matinee) 2021 at the Bridgwater Arts Centre.

This is a small, intimate, cast of 10. If you are lucky to be cast as one of the sisters, I guarantee the character, their story and journey will stay with you for years to come.........

Louisa May Alcott’s famous classic story of the adventures of the four March sisters is brought to vivid musical life in 'Little Women.' The story follows the lives, loves, tribulations and strong sisterhood of the sisters growing up during the American Civil War. Brassy, tomboy and aspiring writer Jo; romantic Meg; pretentious Amy and kind-hearted Beth live in Massachusetts with their ‘Marmee’ while their father is on the battlefield. Filled with adventure (both real and imagined), heartbreak, and a deep sense of hope, the struggle of these 'Little Women' to find their own voices mirrors the growing pains of a young America. The powerful score soars with heartache, hope and buoyant, joyful melodies and offers wonderful opportunities for male and female actor/singers ranging from teenage to 60 years old.

Auditions
Auditions will consist of script reading/acting with others and solo singing. Please prepare (at least) the first verse and chorus of the songs below:
Jo March "Better"
Amy "The Most Amazing Thing"
Meg "More Than I Am"
Beth "Off to Massachusetts"
Marmee "Alone"
Mr Laurence "Off to Massachusetts"
Aunt March "Could You"
Mr John Brooke "More Than I Am"
Professor Bhaer "How I Am"
Laurie Laurence "Take a Chance On Me"
Little Women is set between Concord, Massachusetts and New York City in the 1860s. All accents should be American Standard. For Professor Bhaer the German accent is optional.

Any questions to the director Phil Turley; psturley@icloud.com

We will be releasing character profiles over the next few days, however if you are interested in auditioning for the show all the character profiles, plot summary, important dates (including show dates) and audition information can be found on the following link>>>>>>>

This audition is to find The Marvellously Talented and Multi-roling Ensemble that will share the remaining 22 roles in this exciting new play.

Creative actors sought to bring the heart and soul to the piece!

30 July - 7 August (including matinees on both Saturdays and Sunday, excluding Monday and Tuesday)
Little Oak Wood Open Air Theatre, NW11

GST invites you to audition for the first of our two open-air summer productions for 2021, The Count of Monte Cristo.
Directed and newly adapted by Owain Rose, The Count of Monte Cristo will be an energetic romp through the classic tale – influenced by Kneehigh Theatre, Ben Elton and Baz Luhrmann. The aim will be to create an ensemble of dynamic and creative performers who will multi-role around the main character, Edmond Dantes.

From Napoleon himself to the illustrious Banker No 4 – there will be plenty of roles to go around. Any actor-musicians would be a real benefit to the production as the aim is to utilise the many musical talents of the group to enrich the production.
We will be taking people with availability over everything else, as the whole cast will be needed for almost all the rehearsals – we will be working as a creative ensemble and need as many minds in the room as possible.
We will be rehearsing in the open air on Wednesday and Thursday evenings (7.30 – 9.30pm) and Sundays (3pm - 6pm), starting at the end of May.

Audition for our first summer show
Audition for The Count of Monte Cristo
by Alexandre Dumas adapted for the stage by Owain Rose
Director: Owain Rose
Co-directors/creators/devisers: Mary Musker and Toby Hampton
GST invites you to audition for the first of our two open-air summer productions for 2021, The Count of Monte Cristo.
Directed and newly adapted by Owain Rose, The Count of Monte Cristo will be an energetic romp through the classic tale – influenced by Kneehigh Theatre, Ben Elton and Baz Luhrmann. The aim will be to create an ensemble of dynamic and creative performers who will multi-role around the main character, Edmond Dantes.
From Napoleon himself to the illustrious Banker No 4 – there will be plenty of roles to go around. Any actor-musicians would be a real benefit to the production as the aim is to utilise the many musical talents of the group to enrich the production.
I will be taking people with availability over everything else, as the whole cast will be needed for almost all the rehearsals – we will be working as a creative ensemble and need as many minds in the room as possible.
We will be rehearsing Wednesday and Thursday evenings (7.30 – 9.30pm) and Sundays time tbc, starting in early April.
If you have any questions about the show or this audition notice, please feel free to contact us on countofmontecristo@gardensuburbtheatre.org.uk.

The Last Bread Pudding - a one act comedy by Nick Warburton Directed by Malcolm Hollister

Contact: via our website or social media


Auditions: Wednesday 31st March at 7.30pm by Zoom.
Follow the link on our website www.sudburydramatic.com
To be performed in July at The Quay Theatre (say it quietly!) as part of a programme of two one-act plays and is a comedy.


A funny and unusual one act play set in the world (well the committee room to be precise) of amateur dramatics.
Tensions run high as the committee of this particular amateur dramatic group gather to choose a suitable play to perform.
An array of fun characters are up for grabs as follows:
Ken Mills (society chairman)
Jack Handy (stage manager)
Denise Boon (committee member)
Fleur Florian (commitee member)
Jan Cooke (committee member)
Ages are not of great importance except for Jack (middle aged or older) and Jan who should ideally be under 30.
Additionally there is a non-speaking role (Secretary) and a cameo for a tramp: these will need to be played by the directorial/backstage team to keep numbers down due to 'rule of six' and distancing procedures that will apply when reharsals/performances take place.
