An important note to begin with
All our auditions and shows are open and non-professional with everyone welcome. We take part for the love of making theatre and no one is paid. If you are cast you will need to be a Full Member of the theatre before rehearsals start.
About the show
The play is based on Hans Christian Andersen’s Thumbelina with lots of original songs (Musical Director: Alan Walker) and is approximately 90 minutes long.
A woman gives shelter from the storm to a Fairy Godmother and in return she is granted her one true wish, to have a child of her very own. The Fairy Godmother gives the woman a barleycorn which opens up to reveal a tiny girl called Thumbelina. Mother and daughter are happy together until one day Thumbelina is kidnapped by Mrs Toad who wants to marry Thumbelina to her son, Master Toad. Having persuaded the young toad to keep searching for his one true love, Thumbelina arrives at the river bank with no idea how to get home...
There are lots of parts in the play that will need a strong cast willing to double up and try their hand at anything. We are looking for people who can be part of an ensemble and have lots of fun with costumes, props, movement and music. The auditions will be run in groups with some songs, improv and script work. Please book into one of the 90-minute auditions groups.
Performance dates are 8 - 11 and 15 - 18 December (including weekend matinees)
Please email the director thumbelina@southlondontheatre.co.uk with your audition preference and wait for your confirmation email.

The Riddell Hall, Walton on the Hill, Surrey

PLAYGOERS: A DOMESTIC EPISODE a one-act play by Sir Arthur Wing Pinero

OPEN AUDITIONS
a rehearsed reading performance with a ‘bring your own’ supper and drinks in The Riddell Hall, Walton on the Hill at 7pm on Saturday, 24th September, 2022, curtain-up 8pm

The scene is the pretty morning-room in a London house in 1913. A newly married couple are sitting at the breakfast table. As they have recently been obliged to replace their unsatisfactory domestic staff, the mistress of the house suggests giving the freshly installed servants a treat, to keep them in good humour and consequently in good working order. Hubby’s not overly impressed by the idea, but goes along with it – a trip to the theatre one evening for the domestics, while they dine out. Well, there’s no pleasing some folk. The plan, and the hopeful couple, gradually unravel as one by one their retainers, summoned en-bloc to the morning room to learn of their treat, struggle to understand what is being lined up for their supposed enjoyment - and put forward multifarious reasons as to why it won’t do, each in their own inimitable way. How will it all end?

Characters
Ernest Dorrington, doting husband, a touch autocratic with others, softened despite himself by a somewhat sardonic sense of humour
Norma Dorrington, his bride, inexperienced at household management but determined, if wilting in panic at times
Beechcroft, the parlour-maid: ultra-refined, and haughty towards one and all
Mrs Hacket, the cook: slow-witted but opinionated, and stands on her rights
Evelyn, the kitchen-maid: ‘sat upon’ hard by cook and others, but can speak up for herself
Worringham, the housemaid: a prudish, waspish and outspoken Dissenter
Trinder, the ‘useful’ maid: histrionic, though mournful
Gale, the ‘odd’ man: careful, thorough, but talkative

An audition/read-through will be held at Chris’s home in Bookham on Monday, 5th September at 7.30pm, with a second at 7.30pm on Wednesday, 7th September, also at Chris’s house. Rehearsals will be held there at 7.30pm on Monday, 12th September, Wednesday, 14th September and Friday, 23rd September (semi-dress rehearsal). Some of these dates could be changed if really necessary. The dress rehearsal will be from 2.30 to c. 5.30pm at The Riddell Hall in Walton on the Hill on Saturday, 24th September (a basic set plus props, lights and sound effects).

Please contact Chris if you are interested in taking part: christopherslater100@gmail.com or 01372 454 963

Calendar Girls

Calendar Girls

Audition: Sunday, 11 September 2022 at 7pm
Show week: 20 - 27 November 2022 with performances 24 - 27 November
Upstairs at the Gatehouse
Rehearsals will start 18 September and will be held on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 7.30pm, and Sundays mostly at 3pm.

Based on the true story of eleven WI members who posed nude for a calendar to raise money for the Leukaemia Research Fund, Calendar Girls opened at the Chichester Festival Theatre in 2008 and has since become the fastest-selling play in British theatre history.

Roles
The six Calendar Girls mostly in and around their 40’s – 50’s, indicative playing ages below
Chris 50’s – makes life fun, the life and soul of the party, loves the limelight, can be blinkered and too carried away by her own ideas. Ideal car? Who cares as long as it’s a cabriolet, best friend to..
Annie 50’s – at heart more conformist and less confrontational, has a naughty side and enough salt not to be too sweet, mops up the chaos sometimes left in Chris’ wake. Ideal car? One that’s reliable
Cora 40-50’s – the joker in the pack, deadpan wit, bit of an old hippy, must be able to belt out a tune and either play or mime convincingly playing the piano. Ideal car? Who knows as long as it’s got a good sound system
Jessie 60’s-70’s – a strict but fair teacher you’d remember for life, grammar and the correct placing of apostrophes are very important to her. Ideal car? Strange looking Scandi thing which is no-longer manufactured, maybe a SAAB.
Celia 35-50’s - slightly high maintenance and more at home in a department store than a church hall, she feels like she’s drifted in from another world. However, Celia has a rebelliousness to her which explains why she’s in the WI. Ideal car? Porsche, which she has
Ruth 40’s - eager to please but not a pushover, the WI ladies feel protective of Ruth as they know how hard her home life is. Ruth starts the play as Eddie’s downtrodden wife but ends in triumph gaining both a voice and confidence. Ideal car? At the start is whatever hubby wants..at the end is whatever she wants!
Other female roles
Marie 50’s – WI Chairman and wants everybody to know about it. Uses Ruth as her sounding board and acolyte and is all about show and the glittery things in life. Bit of a dragon and very conventional. Ideal car? German and well valeted.
Brenda Hulse / Lady Cravenshire / Elaine – Playing ages can be anywhere between 20 to 60 - one actress to play all three with make-up, wigs and costume changes throughout. Brenda is a mate of Marie’s and gives a Broccoli PowerPoint presentation in Scene One to the aghast WI ladies, Lady Cravenshire is a local dignitary wheeled in to judge the cake baking competition at the Spring Fete and Elaine is a hair and beauty technician harbouring a guilty secret, revealed when she arrives in Act 2 to beautify the Calendar Girls

Male roles
John 50’s - Annie’s husband, not a saint or hero, just the kind of deep thinking, philosophical and warm-hearted guy you’d want with you in life and when your cake was being harshly judged by Lady C as having a soggy bottom. When he dies it feels like someone, somewhere turned the light off.
Rod 50’s - Chris’ husband, hardworking flower shop owner and the life and soul of the party, has a deadpan humour that cracks Chris up. Mates with John, having been introduced via Chris, Rod is hugely supportive to the ladies of the WI until Chris goes too far
Lawrence / Liam – younger, 20-40’s – One actor to play both roles. Lawrence, the self-effacing and shy hospital porter and amateur photographer brought in to take the Calendar photos, eventually having to take charge and manage the shoot himself after getting no help from the rather tipsy ladies. As well as Liam, a TV Film Director frustrated in having to direct tv adverts for washing powder instead of his true ambition of being the next Ridley Scott.

1974, Britain faces economic crisis and a hung parliament – Labour has gained power, but do not have an overall majority in the House of Commons. In a culture hostile to co-operation, the corridors, back-rooms and bars become the battleground as the whips in a two-party system attempt to cajole, woo, and bully the “odds and sods” of the minor parties to pick a side and change the future of the country.

Performance: 1st - 4th March 2023

Directed by Jess Chambers
Please see info about the Cast below.
If you are interested and need more details please email jesschambers91@gmail.com

SYNOPSIS
It’s 1985 and rock-star wannabe Robbie Hart is New Jersey’s favourite Wedding Singer. He’s the life of the party, until his fiancé leaves him at the altar. Shot through the heart, Robbie makes every wedding as disastrous as his own. Enter Julia, a winsome waitress who wins his affection. As luck would have it, Julia is about to be married to a Wall Street shark, and unless Robbie can pull off the performance of a decade, the girl of his dreams will be gone forever.

THE CAST
Robbie Hart: The lead singer of a band. Handsome and Charismatic. A truly ‘nice’ guy that has the classic lead singer aura and personality. Also a bit of a dreamer. In love with love until Lynda leaves him at the altar and breaks his heart. (MALE 25-35)
Sammy: The bass player in the Wedding band and one of Robbie’s best friends. A total guy’’s guy, but beneath his pretending to love being a bachelor he is actually in love with Holly. (MALE 25-35)
George: The wedding band’s keyboardist and one of Robbie’s best friends. He is sensitive and somewhat flamboyant. The foil to Sammy’s super guy attitude. (MALE 25-35)
Julia Sullivan: Waitress. The pretty ‘girl next door’ in looks and personality. Engaged to Glen but falls in love with Robbie and is conflicted as to who to choose. Empathetic, caring and brave. (FEMALE 25-35)
Holly: Julia’s cousin. Sexually promiscuous and always up for a good time, but wants to be loved and is looking for romantic fulfilment in all the wrong places. She is in love with Sammy. (FEMALE 25-35)
Glen Guglia: Julia’s fiancé. A Wall St broker. He is rich, shallow and materialistic. Constantly tries to buy Julia’s love with money. He is a bit of a womanizer. (MALE 30-45)
Rosie: Robbie’s grandmother who raised him. Motherly but adventurous and always trying to remain ‘hip’ despite her age. (FEMALE 60-80)
Linda: Robbie’s fiancé who leaves him at the altar. Keeps Robbie around as a back-up plan. Is more in love with the idea of Robbie being a rock star than she actually is with Robbie. (FEMALE 20-30)
ENSEMBLE: Couples - Harold & Debbie, Shane & Donatella, Crystal & Mookie. Wedding Guests, Stockbrokers and Impersonators.

The Funeral Director is set in 21st-century Britain and examines Islamic attitudes to same-sex relationships incisively and sensitively, considering issues of sexuality, gender and religion. Life as the director of a Muslim funeral parlour isn't always easy, but Ayesha has things sorted. She and Zeyd share everything: a marriage, a business, a future. Until Tom walks in to organise his boyfriend's funeral. A snap moral decision, informed by the values of Ayesha's community and faith, has profound consequences. Forced to confront a secret she has hidden even from herself, Ayesha must decide who she is – no matter the cost.
DIRECTOR: JESS OSORIO

The Haunting of Hill House

The Haunting of Hill House
By F. Andrew Leslie
Adapted from the novel by Shirley Jackson
This amateur production of 'The Haunting of Hill House' is presented by arrangement with Josef Weinberger Ltd.

AUDITION DATES: 2 July 2022 at 15:00
CALLBACKS: 3 July 2022 at 14:00 at Rutland Arms (86 Brown Street, S1 2BS)
PERFORMANCE DATES: 28 September - 1 October 2022

Roles available, in order of appearance, are as follows:
Eleanor Vance - Lonely, isolated family caretaker who is unhappy in life. Often escapes reality by retreating into her mind and constructing fantasies.
Mrs. Dudley - Hill House cook and wife of the property caretaker who is often silent and sullen, but also quite rigid and strict about rules in place.
Theodora - Independent, curious, quick-witted, strong-headed and queer, who at times can become cold, mean and spiteful.
Dr. Montague - Vain and science focused with an intense interest in the analysis of supernatural manifestations. Considers self careful, conscientious, and of above average intelligence who craves respect and fame for academic endeavours.
Luke Sanderson - Future heir of Hill House who is well-educated and flirtatious. Known to be a liar and thief, but also selfish, lazy and uses humour to casually insult others.
Mrs. Montague - Overbearing, demanding, and condescending paranormal investigator (and wife to Dr. Montague). Often grating to others and vicious even in her compliments, strongly believes in offering love and sympathy to the spirits she communicates with.
Arthur Parker - Spews toxic masculine ideals, though obedient and agreeable in service of Mrs. Montague. Speaks in short, opinionated clips and becomes flustered by female attention.

All who are over the age of 18 are welcome to audition, whether you've worked with us before or are a newcomer. No prior preparation is necessary and the auditions will be workshop style. You only need to attend one audition, but please try to also keep yourself free for callbacks, if possible.
Callbacks are an opportunity for our directors to have another look at certain characters and test stage chemistry between actors suitable for those roles. Being called back does not guarantee a part. Equally, if you are not called back, it doesn't mean you're out of the running for getting cast. Everyone who attends auditions will have an opportunity to get cast.

PRESENT LAUGHTER BY NOEL COWARD

Auditions: Wednesday, 6 July 2022 at 7.30pm
Performance: Wednesday 5 to Saturday 8 October

The play depicts a few days in the life of the successful and self-obsessed light comedy actor, Garry Essendine, as he prepares to travel for a touring commitment in Africa. Amid a series of events bordering on farce, Garry has to deal with people of both genders who want to seduce him, placate both his long-suffering secretary and his wife, cope with a crazed young playwright and overcome his impending mid-life crisis (he has recently turned 40). Coward acknowledged that the character of Garry is a caricature of his own real-life persona.

Daphne Stillington, an admirer of Garry's. Early 20s.
Miss Erikson, Garry's housekeeper. 50 or older. Could double up with Lady Saltburn.

Curtains - the murder mystery musical comedy from the writers of Chicago & Cabaret

Show launch - Thursday 7th July 2022 at 8pm
Rehearsal of audition material - Tuesday 12th July at 8pm
Auditions - Sunday 17th July 12.00-6.00pm
Production runs 16th-19th November 2022

As you'll see above, the show launch & pre-audition meeting for our next production is next Thursday 7th July at 8pm at St. Peter's Hall, Limpsfield. At this meeting you can find out more about the show, get hold of the audition pieces and book an audition.
We are obviously looking forward to seeing lots of familiar faces for this production, but we are also very much on the look out for younger members to join the company. Ideally with a playing age of under forty but with a real age of over seventeen. So if you're interested in being part of the show, or know someone else who might be, come along to the show launch. You don't need to be a member to audition - you just need to pay the joining fee of £10. Membership only has to be paid if you decide to participate in the show, and as we're already half way through the membership year, you'd only be charged 50% of the usual membership fee!

For any further information, contact the director at chair@oxtedmtc.co.uk If you can't make the show launch or indeed the auditions but still want to take part in the show please contact the director regarding that, too. It may be possible to audition you on another date.

'Curtains' will be performed with a live band. Rehearsals commence in September, Tuesday and Thursday evenings and Sunday afternoons. Not everyone will be called to every rehearsal.

From the same writing team as 'Chicago' and 'Cabaret', 'Curtains' tells the tale of Jessica Cranshaw, a leading lady and a triple threat: she can’t sing, dance or remember her lines! To the relief of everyone, she is murdered during her opening night curtain call, leaving the whole cast and crew as suspects. Enter Lt. Frank Cioffi, a police detective and amateur musical performer, to solve the crime, save the show and maybe even get the girl in the process! Packed with glorious tunes and an hilarious script, 'Curtains' is a fun-packed journey for both performers and audiences alike.

Performances run from 16th-19th November 2022 at 7.45pm with a Saturday matinee at 2.30pm.

Director - David Phipps-Davis
Musical Director - Brian D Steel

We are seeking a diverse cast with many different experiences brought to the rehearsal room and the performance.
We will be creating a timeless production; influenced by the historic period, but with modern twists and sensibilities. We want to lift the piece out of its historic period and find a way of connecting with audiences and telling the story in as engaging a way as possible. This won’t be a staid or traditional production!
As part of the cast of 16, we are looking for two performers to perform operatic arias live.
View the audition notice here
In the court of the Austrian Emperor Joseph II, Antonio Salieri is the celebrated and established composer. Enter one of the greatest musical geniuses of all time: Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. The Viennese court doesn’t recognise Mozart’s genius – “too many notes” – but Salieri does. Salieri is tortured by what he hears and suddenly becomes aware of his own mediocrity. He sets out to destroy the man he sees as God’s instrument on earth.
This multi-award winning play is a rich, exuberant portrayal of a God-like man among mortals; and lives destroyed by envy – all to the backing track of Mozart’s glorious music. While the backing track will be pre-recorded, we are looking for two performers to perform operatic arias live (one female and one male). If you would like to be considered for a singing role, please reach out directly on amadeus@sedos.co.uk for further details.

Production dates - Tuesday 8th November - Saturday 12th November 2022

We are pleased to announce that Swan's November production will be Deep Blue Sea by Terrence Rattigan, to be directed by Alex Levene.
'When you're between any kind of devil and the deep blue sea, the deep blue sea sometimes looks very inviting.'
1952.
The lives of the residents of a small, unfashionable West London townhouse are thrown into turmoil, over the course of a single day, in the aftermath of a failed suicide attempt.
Suspended at the centre, Hester Collyer, caught between a tempestuous affair with a former RAF pilot and her estranged High Court judge husband, paints a portrait of passionate longing, solitude and need, against a backdrop of post-war social structures.
As the veneer begins to peel, a new inner landscape is uncovered, tinted with melancholy and muted hope.
'To love with one’s eyes open sometimes makes life very difficult.'

Performance dates are 23rd to 26th November 2022 but you will need to be available 20th to 22nd November for Technical and Dress rehearsals.

The opening of the Channel Tunnel has led to dangerous wolves roaming Britain. Two brave and determined girls – Bonnie and Sylvia - fight against ferocious wolves, snowy wastelands, and their very evil guardian, Miss Slighcarp. Together, and with their friend, Simon the goose boy, they face many dangers as they encounter unforgettable characters and mysterious scheming.

Available Roles as follows:
Bonnie and Sylvia - Bonnie - adventurous and confident, cousin Sylvia quieter and politer (although children in the story, played by actors 18–20yrs)
Simon the Goose Boy – older than the girls, kind, hard working, part of the girls’ adventures
Letitia Slighcarp – vain, menacing tyrant, greedy con artist, unremittingly vile (male actor)
Josiah Grimshaw – frightening, ridiculous, side kick to Letitia
Sir Willoughby – pompous but kind, given to pontification
James – good natured footman, tries to protect the girls
Dr Mourne – family doctor
Gertrude Brisket – prideful, domineering, friend to Letitia
School Inspector
Mr Wilderness – blacksmith
Mr Gripe – family lawyer, unwittingly duped into Letitia’s conspiracy
Dr Field – a doctor who helps the girls
Chorus – narration role - speaking as one/individually/around the theatre

Roles other than Bonnie and Sylvia are age blind (all 18+). Several characters can be doubled if required. Actors with smaller roles will also be part of the Chorus.

Subject to availability, there could be one or two rehearsals in August. Full rehearsals commence in September on a mixture of Tuesday and Wednesday evenings, and Sunday afternoons.
You do not have to be a member to audition but will need to join if cast. Membership option details can be found on the BCP website - banburycrossplayers.org.uk

Rehearsals will take place between 10am–5pm from 30th July to 5th August at the Chapel Playhouse. Our performances will take place on the evening of 5th August at the Chapel Playhouse, and the evening of 6th August at the Bakewell Medway Centre.
We are a warm and welcoming local theatre company, and we pride ourselves in offering theatrical experiences to people who have little-to-no experience in theatre. Everyone who takes part will be supported and encouraged by our friendly production team. Many of our performers have made life-long friendships from our productions, and we are proud of our welcoming and supportive environment. We have previously featured in Derbyshire Life magazine, and past shows have received glowing reviews from the national amateur dramatics society, NODA.

SYNOPSIS
It’s 1985 and rock-star wannabe Robbie Hart is New Jersey’s favourite Wedding Singer. He’s the life of the party, until his fiancé leaves him at the altar. Shot through the heart, Robbie makes every wedding as disastrous as his own. Enter Julia, a winsome waitress who wins his affection. As luck would have it, Julia is about to be married to a Wall Street shark, and unless Robbie can pull off the performance of a decade, the girl of his dreams will be gone forever.

THE CAST
Robbie Hart: The lead singer of a band. Handsome and Charismatic. A truly ‘nice’ guy that has the classic lead singer aura and personality. Also a bit of a dreamer. In love with love until Lynda leaves him at the altar and breaks his heart. (MALE 25-35)
Sammy: The bass player in the Wedding band and one of Robbie’s best friends. A total guy’’s guy, but beneath his pretending to love being a bachelor he is actually in love with Holly. (MALE 25-35)
George: The wedding band’s keyboardist and one of Robbie’s best friends. He is sensitive and somewhat flamboyant. The foil to Sammy’s super guy attitude. (MALE 25-35)
Julia Sullivan: Waitress. The pretty ‘girl next door’ in looks and personality. Engaged to Glen but falls in love with Robbie and is conflicted as to who to choose. Empathetic, caring and brave. (FEMALE 25-35)
Holly: Julia’s cousin. Sexually promiscuous and always up for a good time, but wants to be loved and is looking for romantic fulfilment in all the wrong places. She is in love with Sammy. (FEMALE 25-35)
Glen Guglia: Julia’s fiancé. A Wall St broker. He is rich, shallow and materialistic. Constantly tries to buy Julia’s love with money. He is a bit of a womanizer. (MALE 30-45)
Rosie: Robbie’s grandmother who raised him. Motherly but adventurous and always trying to remain ‘hip’ despite her age. (FEMALE 60-80)
Linda: Robbie’s fiancé who leaves him at the altar. Keeps Robbie around as a back-up plan. Is more in love with the idea of Robbie being a rock star than she actually is with Robbie. (FEMALE 20-30)
ENSEMBLE: Couples - Harold & Debbie, Shane & Donatella, Crystal & Mookie. Wedding Guests, Stockbrokers and Impersonators.

Show dates 26th-29th October 2022

Director: Barbara Archer
Synopsis:
Roberta (also known as Bobbie), Peter, and Phyllis live comfortable, privileged lives with their loving mother and father in London. One day, everything changes: Father suddenly leaves the family home under mysterious circumstances and the children move to a modest house in the countryside to live a far more isolated and impoverished existence. The children do not understand why their father is absent, and their mother is reluctant to give them any details about his exact whereabouts.
The children cope with their adverse circumstances by forming a bond with their new home and community. They develop a deep love for the nearby railway, especially the train they nickname the Green Dragon. Each day, they appear on the platform to wave at this train as it passes, and a passenger they nickname the old gentleman waves back to them. The children forge friendships with the railway employees, including the Station Master and the Porter, Mr. Perks. During their time in the countryside, they have several adventures, including preventing a train accident, rescuing a baby from a burning barge on the canal, and aiding an injured boy in a railway tunnel. Although poor, the children seek to perform acts of kindness for others whenever they can, while Mother maintains her fierce independence by supporting the family through constantly writing for various publications.
The appearance of a Russian Exile at the station midway through the novel foreshadows Father’s whereabouts. The Russian Exile has suffered arbitrary imprisonment—and so, too, has Father, who is serving a five-year sentence for supposed treason. Although all three of the children gradually become aware that there is something strangely amiss in their father’s absence, it is only Roberta—the eldest and most sensitive of the children—who finally discovers the truth in an old newspaper article. She responds to this discovery by writing a letter to the old gentleman asking for his assistance, as the well-connected and kind man is often a benefactor to the family in times of need. The old gentleman’s intervention secures Father’s release and leads to the eventual reunion of the family at the novel’s end.

Bugsy Malone

Bugsy Malone

Introduction: Friday 17th June 7-9pm
Sing thru and dance sets: Tuesday 21st or Thursday 23rd June 7-9pm
Auditions: Tuesday 28th or Tursday 30th June 7-9pm
Rehearsals are twice a week, Tuesdays and Thursdays 7-9pm (and will increase to 3 and 4 times a week nearer the show, not all cast will be called to every rehearsal)
Performance Dates: 18th to 22nd October 2022

A slapstick musical comedy, Bugsy Malone follows the rivalry between two half-witted street gangs and the washed up, well-intentioned, one-time boxer who steps in to take control of Fat Sam's gang and give Dandy Dan and his boys what they've got coming. In this film noir spoof, the message is one of good, clean fun; the characters are wonderful cartoon cutouts; and the weapons of choice are "splurge" whip cream guns, flour bombs, and custard pies.
We are looking for young performers in school years 7 to 11 to bring the musical comedy BUGSY MALONE to the Haverhill Arts Centre.

Go Back for Murder by Agatha Christie

Go Back for Murder by Agatha Christie

Tuesday 24th May and Wednesday 25th May at 7.30pm
The play will be directed by Will Parrick and produced at the Headgate Theatre from Wednesday 9th November to Saturday 12th November 2022, including a Saturday Matinee.

(Please note - CTG is a local community group therefore this is an unpaid casting call)
Agatha Christie’s Go Back For Murder is a murder mystery which plays with convention, as its narrative slips from present to past and back again. Some years after her (now deceased) mother was convicted for the murder of her father, Carla Crale returns to her native England from Canada to re-open the investigation into her father’s killing. Carla has received a letter from her late mother that throws the verdict of her father’s murder into question. With the help of a young lawyer, Justin Fogg, Carla seeks out the key players in the fateful day her father died and attempts to find the truth.
If you are interested in auditioning, then please please email ctgroup53@gmail.com for details of the audition

Death by Design

Death by Design

Tuesday 29th March and Thursday 1st April starting at 8pm

After the issues regarding our planned production of An Inspector calls, we are pleased to announce that we will instead be producing Death by Design by Rob Urbinati.
Our apologies once again for the previous announcement which was slightly premature, and the delays in being able to get this updated.
If you don’t know the play, it is what happens when you mix the brilliant wit of Noel Coward with the intricate plotting of Agatha Christie? Set during a weekend in an English country manor in 1932, Death by Design is a delightful and mysterious “mash-up” of two of the greatest English writers of all time. Edward Bennett, a playwright, and his wife Sorel Bennett, an actress, flee London and head to Cookham after a disastrous opening night. But various guests arrive unexpectedly – a conservative politician, a fiery socialist, a nearsighted ingenue, a zany modern dancer – each with a long-held secret. When one of the guests is murdered, it’s left to Bridgit, the feisty Irish maid with a macabre interest in homicide, to solve the crime.
Characters;
Bridgit – the Maid. Irish. Crabby. Warm-hearted. Fifties.
Jack – the Chauffer. Cockney. Charming. Clever. Twenties.
Edward Bennett – the Playwright. Urbane. Vain. Thirties/Forties.
Sorel Bennett – the Actress. Glamorous. Daffy. Thirties/Forties
Walter Pearce – the Politician. Stiff. Conservative. Thirties/Forties.
Eric – the Radical. Emphatic. Fiery. Twenties.
Vitoria Van Roth – the Bohemian. Intense. Artistic. Any Age.
Alice – the Visitor. Sweet. Shy. Twenties.
The action of the play takes place in the living room of the Bennett’s house in Cookham, in 1932.
For those that would like to audition, you can just turn up without any prep. Scripts and instructions will be provided on the night.
If you do wish to come, just so we have an idea on numbers please confirm when you wish to make it via email: contact@st-georges-players.org.uk

Oliver Goldsmith’s much-loved 18th century comic masterpiece.
Old-fashioned country Squire Hardcastle has a foolish fashionable wife, an oafish step-son, and beautiful and witty daughter. He hopes for a marriage between his daughter Kate and the son of his best friend, Charles Marlow, a young man who seems perfect in every way apart from his excruciating shyness in the presence of respectable ladies. Mrs Hardcastle hopes for a marriage between her son Tony Lumpkin and her ward, the heiress Constance Neville. But Tony is far more interested in local girl Bet Bouncer and Constance is far more interested in her secret fiancé George Hastings, Charles Marlow’s best friend. When Marlow and Hastings get lost en route to visit Hardcastle, Tony Lumpkin directs them to an “Inn” - which is in fact his step-father’s house. The scene is set for a series of comic misunderstandings and misadventures: in the words of the play’s sub-title, “The Mistakes of a Night”.

Directed by Bill Lay
‘If music be the food of love …’ – ‘All you need is Love … ‘
In the dream world of Illyria Shakespeare plays with the rapidly shifting sands of love to create the mother-of-all rom-coms.
…. Orsino loves Olivia, who mourns her brother’s death and has ‘abjured the sight and company of men’ …. Viola, shipwrecked, also mourns her brother’s death (in the same shipwreck) is employed (as a man – Cesario) by Orsino to woo Olivia on his behalf … Olivia promptly falls for him/her/Cesario, but he/she/Viola has fallen for Orsino … ‘Even so quickly may one catch the plague’ … just what is love?
And that is just Act One of one of the best-loved comedies ever written. Mix in Malvolio (pompous, proud, tricked into wooing Olivia and being humiliated), Sir Toby, Sir Andrew and others for a rapidly shifting rom-com set in the 1967 Summer of Love (with appropriate music).

The Farndale Avenue Housing Estate Townswomen's Guild Dramatic Society's Production of Macbeth

The Farndale Avenue Housing Estate Townswomen's Guild Dramatic Society's Production of Macbeth

Audition date: Mon 21st and Wed 23rd March at the Settlement.
Rehearsals will be Mon, Wed, and some Sundays
Production days: 16-18 June 2022

The Farndale Avenue Housing Estate Townswomen's Guild Dramatic Society ladies mount yet another assault on the classics with a startlingly original production of Macbeth staged to get them to the Welwyn Garden City Finals.
This is a comedy that will be performed in a 'Goes Wrong Show' style with lots of physical and non verbal reactions and larger than life characters with specific affectations. The characters themselves are all played straight rather than for laughs.
I also intend to make this production 'meta' (ask someone under the age of 12 for a definition) and have the Players playing TFAHSTGDS playing Macbeth, with some characters never going on stage (I can hear the sobs of the stage manger already).
The script allows flexibility with age and other attributes. I include some descriptions for a bit of context. We may move some of the Macbeth characters around.
Thelma - Prima donna, quick to give opinion - Plays Macbeth and Ross
Mrs. Reece - A committed and generously positive chairwomen - Plays Lady Macduff and Doctor
Felicity - Housewife, keen, less experienced - Plays 2nd witch, Seyton, 1st murderer, Malcom and gentlewomen
Minnie - Good Natured - Plays Banquo and Lady Macduffs son
Henry - A non actor stage manager who knows the words but not the moves and steps in to play Lady Macbeth.
Gwynneth - Ensemble character to be fully involved in the show. May take some of the smaller characters in Macbeth
Plummer - Ineffectual producer.
George Peach - Committed and positive drama festival adjudicator. Lots of acting in the auditorium
Kate - Leg in plaster on crutches, but soldiers on, capable - Plays 3rd Witch, Macduff and messenger
Dawn - Flighty - Plays 1st witch, Porter, 2nd murderer, Duncan, Fleance
I have a scanned copy for you to read before the audition, please contact me for the pdf.
Once cast, learning lines will need to begin in earnest. There are a number of physical scenes, where holding a script will be difficult.
Rehearsals will be on Monday and Wednesday at 8.00 pm and most but not all Sunday’s. A full rehearsal schedule will be issued once the play is cast.
If you would like to audition but cannot make the audition dates, or are interested in supporting the production backstage or on the technical side, then please let me know at sjcharles@ntlworld.com

Death by Design

Death by Design

Tuesday 29th March and Thursday 1st April starting at 8pm

After the issues regarding our planned production of An Inspector calls, we are pleased to announce that we will instead be producing Death by Design by Rob Urbinati.
Our apologies once again for the previous announcement which was slightly premature, and the delays in being able to get this updated.
If you don’t know the play, it is what happens when you mix the brilliant wit of Noel Coward with the intricate plotting of Agatha Christie? Set during a weekend in an English country manor in 1932, Death by Design is a delightful and mysterious “mash-up” of two of the greatest English writers of all time. Edward Bennett, a playwright, and his wife Sorel Bennett, an actress, flee London and head to Cookham after a disastrous opening night. But various guests arrive unexpectedly – a conservative politician, a fiery socialist, a nearsighted ingenue, a zany modern dancer – each with a long-held secret. When one of the guests is murdered, it’s left to Bridgit, the feisty Irish maid with a macabre interest in homicide, to solve the crime.
Characters;
Bridgit – the Maid. Irish. Crabby. Warm-hearted. Fifties.
Jack – the Chauffer. Cockney. Charming. Clever. Twenties.
Edward Bennett – the Playwright. Urbane. Vain. Thirties/Forties.
Sorel Bennett – the Actress. Glamorous. Daffy. Thirties/Forties
Walter Pearce – the Politician. Stiff. Conservative. Thirties/Forties.
Eric – the Radical. Emphatic. Fiery. Twenties.
Vitoria Van Roth – the Bohemian. Intense. Artistic. Any Age.
Alice – the Visitor. Sweet. Shy. Twenties.
The action of the play takes place in the living room of the Bennett’s house in Cookham, in 1932.
For those that would like to audition, you can just turn up without any prep. Scripts and instructions will be provided on the night.
If you do wish to come, just so we have an idea on numbers please confirm when you wish to make it via email: contact@st-georges-players.org.uk

Performances: 19-21 May 2022

Can’t Pay? Won’t Pay! is a raucous romp originally written in the 70s, but with themes still achingly relevant today. It's a hilarious and critically acclaimed political farce about two housewives who decide to rebel against inflationary supermarket prices, while trying to hide the evidence from their righteous, trade unionist husbands and the ever-present arm of the law. What lengths will they go to to conceal the truth, and what might happen if they get caught?

Auditions – 4th & 6th January 2021 7:30pm
Performance: 18th to 21st May 2022
You will need to be available from 15th May for Technical and Dress rehearsals.

Clarissa, second wife of diplomat Henry Hailsham-Brown, is adept at spinning tales of adventure for the bored diplomatic circle. When a murder takes place in her drawing room she finds live drama harder to cope with (particularly as she suspects the murderer may be her step-daughter, Pippa). Worse still, the victim is the man who broke up Henry’s first marriage. Desperate to dispose of the body before her husband arrives with an important politician, she enlists the help of her guests. Clarissa’s fast talking places her in some hair-raising experiences as she comes to learn the facts are more terrifying than fiction!
A conscious parody of the detective thriller, Christie delivers a unique blend of suspense and humour. Tension and laughter come equally in this intricate plot of murder, police, drug addicts, invisible ink, hidden doorways & secret drawers.
Roles available as follows: Sir Roland Delahaye - Clarissa Hailsham-Brown - Elgin - Hugo Birch - Pippa Hailsham-Brown - Oliver Costello - Inspector Lord - Constable Jones - Jeremy Warrender - Mildred Peake - Henry Hailsham-Brown

King Alfred Phoenix Theatre, NW11 7HY


We held an audition for The Vortex in June 2020 but the performances have been postponed until April 2022 because of the pandemic.
This audition is for the parts that have become vacant because those cast cannot make the new dates.
(In the event that any of them do find themselves able to take part before the audition their part will not be auditioned.)
REGISTER FOR THE AUDITION

We will be rehearsing on two or three evenings on weekdays and on Sunday afternoons. Weekday rehearsals will initially be on Tuesdays and Thursdays starting in February; subsequently there may be some on Wednesdays as well. Rehearsals will be held at the Free Church Hall, Northway, NW11 from 8pm to 10.30pm on weekdays and 3pm to 6pm on Sundays.

The Vortex is a play for the 20s. It was Noël Coward’s first success in 1924 and while on the surface it glitters with sharp repartee, the bitter truth that lies underneath reflects the characters’ struggle to come to terms with the emptiness of society after the trauma of the First World War. It deals head-on with escape in drugs – shocking then and relevant today – and hints at a deeper conflict with homosexuality. The complexities of the parent/child relationship and acceptance of our inevitable decline into old age are other over-arching themes.

Characters to be auditioned (with playing age):
Bunty Mainwaring: 20s. Nicky’s fianceé. Self-assured, realistic and decisive.
Helen Saville: 30s. Florence’s friend and someone who understands her. Smartly dressed and sensible.
Pauncefoot Quentin: “An elderly maiden gentleman” of indeterminate age.

The following parts have already been cast:
Florence Lancaster: About 55. Egotistical but fragile. She “retains the remnants of great beauty”.
Nicky Lancaster: 24. Her son. A concert pianist “with thin, nervous hands”. Insecure and searching for love and meaning.
David Lancaster: About 60. Her husband. Pleasant, patient, and resigned to life.
Tom Veryan: 24. Florence’s lover “athletic and good looking”. In the Guards. “One feels he is good at games and extremely bad at everything else”.
Clara Hibbert: 35+ An opera singer, temperamental and sensitive.
Preston Florence’s maid.
Bruce Fairlight: An earnest playwright who writes “squalid” plays. Any age.

As with all GST productions we cast without regard to race, colour, religion, national origin, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, or disability.
We are also looking for someone to play the piano and sing as part of the production. Please contact Colin if you would be interested in this.

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

Dolly - Charlie's secretary - 30's/40's - Voluptuous, beehive hair - Flirtatious, bossy. Wiggles on heels.
Alan Dangle - Wannabe actor, Pauline's fiancée - 20's/30's - Fancies himself as a star - Aspiring actor-dramatic gestures, accentuated dialogue.
Harry Dangle - Alan's father - 50's/60's - Heavy Set - Crooked Solicitor-dapper, faintly sleazy.
Alfie/Driver/Barman – Waiter - 80's - Hard of hearing, nearly blind - Cadaverous-shuffles long, back bowed & bewildered.Gareth/Policeman - Head Waiter – 40 - Efficient and streamlined. - Oversees operations with a flick of the wrist.
Synopsis:
Fired from his skiffle band, Francis Henshall becomes minder to Roscoe Crabbe, a small time East End hood, now in Brighton to collect £6,000 from the dad of his fiancée. But Roscoe is really his sister Rachel posing as her own dead brother, who has been killed by her boyfriend Stanley Stubbers.
Holed up at The Cricketers Arms, the permanently ravenous Francis spots the chance of an extra meal ticket and takes a second job with one Stanley Stubbers, who is hiding from the police and waiting to be reunited with Rachel. To prevent discovery, Francis must keep his two guvnors apart. Simple.

The Cripple of Inishmaan

The Cripple of Inishmaan
By Martin McDonagh
Directed by David Quaife

Friday 21st January 2022 7:30pm

Auditions commence at the theatre at 7:30pm and are open to all.
More info: gbtheatre.co.uk/audition2022season.html
This play was written by Martin McDonagh in 1996 and premiered at the Royal National Theatre. McDonagh is probably best known for the Leenane trilogy starting with The Beauty Queen of Leenane and the Aran Island trilogy of play of which The Cripple of Inishmaan is the first. Among his other significant plays is The Pillowman.
His best known films are probably In Bruges and Three Billboards Outside Ebbing Missouri.
The Cripple of Inishmaan is set on a remote island near Inishmaan in 1934 and has the following cast:
Kate, mid 60s
Eileen, mid 60s
Johnnypateen Mike, mid 60s
Billy, late teens*, crippled
Hartley, late teens*
Helen, late teens*
Babbybobby, early 30s*
Doctor, 40s
Mammy, early 90s
* We can take some liberties with the age of actors particularly the younger ones.
The plot centres around the production of the film Man of Aran (available of Youtube) and directed by Robert Flaherty from Hollywood. This is being shot on the neighbouring island of Inishmaan and they all have ambitions to be in it. Billy, Hartley and Helen see this as an possible escape from the tedium of life on Inishmaan. But they have to get there. Babbybobby has a boat and he is persuaded to take them. What follows has a surprise or two.
The Cripple of Inishmaan is a comic play. Compared with many of McDonagh’s plays and films this is a much lighter offering although there is a slightly darker side to it. However the story has a bitter sweet ending but rehearsals should be fun.
I hope to see a good turnout for the auditions.
David Quaife
Director

The Ladykillers by Graham Linehan
The Ladykillers tells the classic black comedy tale of a sweet little old lady, alone in her house, pitted against a gang of criminal misfits who will stop at nothing....Posing as amateur musicians practicing for a concert, Professor Marcus and his gang rent rooms in the lopsided house of sweet and eccentric Mrs Wilberforce. The villains plot to involve her unwittingly in Marcus’ brilliantly conceived heist job. The police are left stumped, but Mrs Wilberforce becomes wise to their ruse and Marcus concludes that there is only one way to keep the old lady quiet. With only her parrot, General Gordon, to help her, Mrs W. is alone with five desperate men. But who will be forced to face the music?

Tom Jones

Auditions: 23 & 24 Jan
Performance: 8th to 15th July, 2022

Directed by Helen McCallum
Bawds are very excited to be staging an outdoor production of 'Tom Jones' by Joan Macalpine at Madingley Hall from 8th to 15th July, 2022. Young Tom Jones, orphan and ward of Squire Allworthy, is in love with Sophia but her father insists she must marry the Squire's unscrupulous nephew, Blifil. To help him get over his disappointment, Tom embarks on a lifestyle full of wine, women and song, becoming entangled with three women at once: Jenny Waters, a lady of warm heart and generous virtue, Mrs. Fitzpatrick, a society lady seeking diversion from her oafish husband and, of course, the lovely Sophia. Untangling the mess he's got himself into produces a funny, raunchy entertainment ideal for the lovely grounds at Madingley.
