Auditions

Want to be involved but don’t want to act? There’s always plenty to do backstage – see our membership page for details.

Non-members are welcome but please read the notes on this page.

Membership Commitment – as part of your membership we expect all members to support the theatre by assisting with our Front of House Operations when the theatre is open for performances by either Stewarding, working on the Bar or Coffee Bar. We term this as a “Duty” and members are expected to do ten “Duties” per membership year.

New Members will be asked to do three duties before the run of any production they are cast in. Existing members should ensure that they have fulfilled their quota of duties before auditioning or they may not be considered for a production.

All members should do a minimum of three duties within a four month period.

 

****AUDITION NOTICE***

Christmas Production 2018: Alice In Wonderland

Based on the book by Lewis Carroll

Adapted for the stage by James David Knapp

AUDITIONS:

 

SATURDAY 1ST SEPTEMBER 2PM – 6PM

SUNDAY 2ND SEPTEMBER 10AM – 2PM

 

Follow Alice’s adventures in which she discovers the weird and magical world of Wonderland. Things will surely become “curiouser and curiouser!” for Alice as she tries to make her way through this upside down world, assisted (and sometimes threatened!) by a host of colourful and strange characters.

Auditions will soon take place for this exciting new adaption of Lewis Carroll’s popular book.

 

I am looking for versatile, imaginative and enthusiastic actors that can bring these amazing characters to life. There are many exciting characters to be cast such as Alice, The Mad Hatter and The Queen, but I will also be looking to cast a strong ensemble that can help create the magic needed to bring the world of Wonderland to life.

 

Auditions will consist of a brief familiarisation with the play itself, how it’s been adapted, and the director’s vision for the rehearsal process and production. You will then be asked to work within another actor or a small group of actors on extracts from the play (which will be provided at the audition).

 

Rehearsals will take place from 1st October leading up to our run from the 4th to the 15th December. Please make sure that you are available for all performance dates on the website:

Hope to see you soon,
