The Tempest

Contact: via our website or social media


Auditions: Thursday 1 October 7.30pm ~ 9.30pm
Sunday 4 October 2.30pm ~ 5.00pm
Performance dates 19-24 July 2021 at Hatherop Castle


The Tempest shows us the world’s greatest playwright at the height of his powers. Probably the last play that he wrote, it offers exquisite poetry, complex characterisation, deep emotions, supernatural intervention, raucous comedy, and more music than any of his other works. Set entirely outdoors, it is short, entertaining and full of action. It needs no complex scenery or scene changes, but provides extensive opportunities for backstage creativity in props, lighting, sound, special effects, costume and make-up. For many, it is his finest achievement.
Prospero is the central role. But there are ten other speaking roles of various ages, each of 100-200 lines. At least half of these could be women.
Come and be part of it!

If you would like to audition but are unable to make either of these dates we still want you, so please contact director@arcadians.org before the end of September to arrange an alternative.
Audition guidance, some suggested pieces and an audition form are attached to this email and can be downloaded here. Auditions will be conducted in accordance with current Covid-19 requirements at the time, so if you could notify Jonathan at director@arcadians.org if you are intending to audition it would help with planning.

Christmas in Pantoland (THE ‘OH, YES, IT IS’ SHOW)

Contact: via our website or social media


Audition dates: On and between Monday 19th - Thursday 22nd October

Have you ever wondered how pantomime’s famous faces spend Christmas and what they get up to?
So does writer and director Phil Osborn and so he has put together this behind the scenes look at what some of your favourite characters might be doing this season
Bobby Buttons and Diane Dandini, presenters of the popular television magazine show, ‘Oh, Yes, It Is!’ have invited a collection of panto’s famous, infamous and downright stupid, to appear on the show
Auditions for Christmas in Pantoland will take place in one of three ways between:
Monday 19th and Thursday 22nd October
Home recorded and submitted
Live on-line via Webex
Face to face in the Jetty under social distancing by arrangement
Contact Phil by email at pdaosborn@btinternet.com to let him know which method of audition you prefer, which part you are interested in and the dates that you are available that week.
More information about the production here.
Audition pieces can be emailed to you or downloaded here.


Cast required:
(Where characters appear together as an obvious ‘pair’ it is not necessary but could be useful if they were part of the same ‘bubble’)
ANCHOR - voice only. Can be recorded remotely. Starts off with impeccable BBC received pronunciation but gets a little more jaded and ‘local’ every time he appears.
BOBBY BUTTONS - smiling, smooth and ambitious television presenter.
DIANE DANDINI - also a TV presenter, still smooth but more cynical than Bobby
WISHEE-WASHEE - Hollywood gossip columnist. Bad fake American accent which often fails. Wishee is eager and keen.
ABANAZER - evil villain having a night off. Still scary when riled but terrified of his wife.
BARBARA - Abanazer’s wife. A nag who henpecks her husband. She is a social climber who does not like being social!
TOILETTIE - Ugly Sister One. Thinks she’s better than her sister.
LATRINIA - Ugly Sister Two. Thinks she is better than her sister.
PING - Peking policeman One. Boastful and big-headed he likes to think he is a dashing hero of law enforcement rather than a lowly constable.
PONG - Peking policeman Two. Much more down to earth and likes to prick his associate’s bubble.

Director: Phil Osborn

The Yalta Game/Afterplay

The Yalta Game/Afterplay

Audition: Sunday 13th September 2020 at 19:30 on Zoom
Production dates: 17th-22nd November 2020


GST invites you to audition for our next production:
The Yalta Game and Afterplay* by Brian Friel
To register your interest and get a zoom link please email november@gardensuburbtheatre.org.uk

* Afterplay is subject to getting a licence

Audition pieces will be on the GST Website shortly

Audition form
Please fill in our online audition form here.

Note: The safety of performers, crew and audiences will always be paramount. Rehearsals will be conducted in accordance with the applicable government guidance. New restrictions may be introduced if cases of coronavirus begin to rise again.

The plays: Following the postponement of The Vortex we are staging a smaller scale show so as to be able to comply with social distancing requirements. We have chosen two one act plays by Brian Friel: The Yalta Game and Afterplay. Each has a cast of one man and one woman and a simple set. In the first, based on a short story by Anton Chekhov, a man in his 40s (or thereabouts) and a young married woman in her 20s meet on holiday in Yalta; and in the second (also drawing on Chekhov) Uncle Vanya's niece Sonya and the three sisters' brother Andrey - both in their 40s - meet in a run-down Moscow cafe in the early 1920s.

We have been told by Brian Friel’s agents that The Yalta Game is available for performance and we will be formally applying for a licence. If the agents advise us that Afterplay is also available, we will apply formally for a licence for that also. If we are able to perform both we will alternate performances of the two plays. If we are only able to perform The Yalta Game we will select two casts and alternate performances with each cast. This means that if one cast is unable to perform, for example because someone is having to isolate, the other cast can step in.

As with all GST productions we cast without regard to race, colour, religion, national origin, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, or disability.

We will be rehearsing on two or three evenings on weekdays and on Sunday afternoons. Weekday rehearsals will initially be on Tuesdays and Thursdays. 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.

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.

Performance Week
Tuesday 17th-Saturday 21st November (7.30pm) and Sunday 22nd November (4.00pm) at Upstairs at the Gatehouse, 1 North Road, Highgate, London N6 4BD

If you have any questions after reading the following audition notice, then please feel free to contact us on november@gardensuburbtheatre.org.uk

Characters

The Yalta Game
Dmitry Dmitrich Gurov
39. Flippant on the surface, his romantic encounters provide an escape from the humdrum life of a bank accountant. The distinction between the real and the imaginary begins to blur as he enters on a life of deception.
Anna Sergeyevna
22. On holiday without her husband (a local government officer), she is accompanied by her (imaginary) dog. Her affair with Dmitri pulls her apart yet she clings to the notion that perpetual disappointment is a divine blessing.

Afterplay
Andrey Prozorov
40s. His life on his estate before the revolution is a distant memory. He earns his living from playing the violin in the street, but pretends he is in the orchestra at the opera. Shabby and disillusioned, his meeting with Sonya helps him to open up a little.
Sonya Serebriakova
40s. “She appears to be a controlled, determined and efficient woman”. Her skill at running her uncle’s estate has come in useful. But the pain of losing her love (the doctor in Uncle Vanya) has not left her, and never will while she holds out hope of seeing him again.

List of audition pieces
Audition pieces
Audition pieces(2)

Audition form
Please fill in our online audition form here: https://tinyurl.com/VortexAudition

Note: We are going ahead with the audition for The Vortex , but the safety of performers, crew and audiences will always be paramount. New restrictions may be introduced if cases of coronavirus begin to rise again. If social distancing requirements have not been relaxed sufficiently to allow normal rehearsals to take place by mid-September, The Vortex will not be able to proceed and will be put off until 2021.

The play: 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.

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 email vortex@gardensuburbtheatre.org.uk">vortex@gardensuburbtheatre.org.uk if you would be interested in this.

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 mid-September; 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.

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.

Contact: via our website or social media


Auditions by self-tape - deadline April 30th 2020

This production is a spin-off to our internationally awardwinning production of Macbeth, which toured twice in 2019. Many of the original casts are returning, however, some have been unable to, and these are the roles that we are re-advertising. This is the full, uncut, original Shakespearean text.
This is a purely online production, to take place during June. It will be performed inline with the UK lockdown and social distancing laws currently in place, using the video-conferencing platform Zoom. This will be livestreamed to audiences using social media, with a paypal link for donations – any donations obtained for the show, will be shared equally among all cast. The performance will also be recorded and put on youtube (as well as the recording made available to cast for any personal portfolio use).
Because of using a solely online medium, actors can be based anywhere in the world, but MUST adhere to our usual high standards of excellence in performance (line learning, characterisation etc) and performance (including being online to start rehearsals and the final performance, promptly and prepared). They will need access to a digital device running Zoom, in order to be involved.

FREAK SHOW written by Amy Clayton & Justin Cartledge

Contact: via our website or social media


March 2020

After an electric debut run in Chelmsford last year, their original musical closed with audiences wanting more.
Well now its back; slicker and quicker than ever – ready to take you on the Merry-Go-Round of madness that is the star-crossed lover’s journey into London.
We’re heading to The Albany, in Deptford - one of the up-and-coming London Fringe theatres - for a 2-week run which will gain the show (and YOU) mass exposure.
“Roll up! Roll up! And hear the sound!
FREAK SHOW is a new kind of circus, where magic and mayhem walk hand in hand. Gilly has finally found his/her purpose, and it would seem – his/her one true love.
The Ringmaster will grant him/her his/her heart’s desires, so Gilly better be sure of what he/she wants . . .
FREAK SHOW: Careful What You Wish For –the Devil was once an Angel”
Be part of the bewitchment and make this dream your reality.
The Director is looking for the following role to be cast:
Gilly
Male (or Female)
Lead love interest and protagonist
Playing age 18-25
Tenor/Alto with confident Falsetto and Strong Belt
Very good mover
Naïve, lost, confused, a bit Emo.

Gypsy – A Musical Fable
By Arthur Laurents (book), Jule Styne (music) & Stephen Sondheim (lyrics)
Gypsy is the story of a domineering mother (Rose) striving to get her children (June & Louise) into show business. Based on the memoirs of Gypsy Rose Lee, it tells of their journey and presents characters along the way who are key to achieving that success, although if they’re not useful to Mama Rose she casts them aside. It seems like a simple story of an unrelenting stage-mom, but scratch at the surface and what we find is a woman riddled with unconscious defences and pain. We see this in all of Rose’s domineering behaviour and get a window in to how lonely that can be as well as the effect it has on all those around, but will the border-line narcissist recognise her vicarious behaviour? It’s not all heavy doom, gloom and unconscious survival mechanisms though, it is also about flourishing and through the life of Louise we see the glory of breaking free from pre-imposed life scripts and constraints when she becomes her true self as roles between mother and daughter reverse.
Littered with larger than life characters and some of the greatest female roles in musical theatre, there is plenty of opportunity for an actor to stretch their legs and vocal cords. This doesn’t mean we require great dancers who have perfectly trained singing voices though, in fact that would be wrong for the piece. What we will be looking for are actors who can sing and move; character is key. June and Tulsa however, do require a good level of dance and singing. There is a wide range of playing ages and flexibility so don’t let perceived age be a barrier to auditioning - have a read through the character breakdowns and come along to the presentation. We will also need some younger children for the early scene at the beginning but we will cast these after initial auditions.
Rehearsals will be two evenings a week and a slightly longer weekend rehearsal for larger setting and runs. This is quite a large cast piece so not all cast will be required for all rehearsals. I have lived with Gypsy to the forefront of my mind for some time now and eagerly await the beginning of rehearsals and exploring the piece with the cast to see what together we will create. As the song goes, ‘Together, wherever we go.ooooo’.

We will be rehearsing Tuesday and Thursday evenings (7.30 – 9.30 pm) and Sundays time tbc, starting in early April.

Bouncers 1990’s Remix by John Godber shows a night on the tiles from the point of view of the men on the door.
It is a funny, energetic piece of highly theatrical storytelling where the men are at once themselves, and every character they happen to meet on a night working at the nightclub.RThe boredom of the men on the door spills over into grotesque violence and fantasy. The antics of the girls and boys out for a night on the town hardly needs developing to make them dramatic. The conflict between those wanting a good time and those stopping a good time from being bad is a basic dramatic premise.
The central theme of Bouncers is universal: men after beer after women and the beat goes on. There is also a Bouncers rap which should prove entertaining.RThere are four male parts who play over 20 different characters.

We are all animals. The only difference is we pretend to be something better. But we’re not. We’re cruel, greedy, stupid and selfish'
Gerry and Roger’s mum, Martha, has gone missing; well, most of her has… Five years after her death, she is the inadvertent victim of animal rights activists, campaigning for the liberation of the slimy inhabitants from the brothers’ frog farm. But with only the hapless Inspector Clout on the case trying to establish the whereabouts of their dead mother’s remains, things are not going to go to plan for anyone. An absurdly funny, wickedly black comedy grappling with death, vegan terrorists and six-foot tall, hallucinogenic frogs.

The Warden by Anthony Trollope
Adapted and Directed by Pelham Elliott


Auditions: Monday 30th March 7:30pm
Production dates: Tuesday 15th – Saturday 19th September 2020,br>Rehearsals start: late July


The warden of the title is the music-loving, meek Septimus Harding, made warden of the Almshouses in Barchester, Hiram’s Hospital, by his good friend the Bishop. His gentle existence, and the equilibrium of the Cathedral Close is shattered when a young reformer, John Bold, launches a campaign to expose what he sees as the unfairness of the comfortable living being enjoyed by the Warden, using income which Bold believes should go to the bedesmen of the hospital.
The indomitable Archdeacon Grantly, who is the Bishop’s son, is determined to fight the case, confident in the Diocese’s success, and advises the Warden to stand his ground. The case develops when the popular daily newspaper, The Jupiter, weighs in on Bold’s side.
The development of the case will have repercussions for others in the Close – not least of whom are the two daughters of Harding – the elder, Susan, is married to the Archdeacon, whilst the younger is in love with Bold.
Scripts available for short term loan from 1st March from the Quay.

Performances:mFrom Monday 11th – Saturday 16th May 2020 at WALES MILLENNIUM CENTRE CARDIFF


ONCE The musical
CARDIFF – MILLENNIUM CENTRE
Book by Enda Walsh
Music and Lyrics by Glen Hansard and Markéta Irglová
Based on the motion picture written and directed by John Carneym

Producers : Adam Spiegel Productions
Director : Peter Rowe
Musical Director : Ben Goddard
Dates :
Rehearsals One session on the day of the first performance in the venue
Performances From Monday 11th – Saturday 16th May 2020 at WALES MILLENNIUM CENTRE CARDIFF

The role will be shared by two children at each venue. They MUST live in very easy travelling distance of the venue – definitely no more than 40 minutes travelling door to door.

Auditions : In CARDIFF – Tuesday 31st March 2020.

Once is directed by Peter Rowe with set and costume design by Libby Watson, musical direction by Ben Goddard, choreography by Francesca Jaynes, lighting design by Mark Dymock, sound design by James Cook and projection design by Peter Hazelwood.

Based on the critically acclaimed and much-loved film, Once tells the uplifting yet yearning story of two lost souls - a Dublin street busker and a Czech musician - who unexpectedly fall in love. Following their relationship across five short days, big changes happen to both of them in little ways. Celebrated for its original folk score including the Academy Award-winning song Falling Slowly, Once is a spell-binding and uplifting story of hopes and dreams.

CASTING BREAKDOWN
We are only looking for the following children’s role:

IVONKA
The child of the lead character, this is a small non-speaking but important role in the musical. She’s five years old in the story, but realistically we are probably looking for a small 7 or 8 year old to play the role. She should look Eastern European/Czech, probably with dark or dark blonde hair, dark eyes.

She needs to be confident and secure enough to walk onstage on her own for the first encounter, and comfortable with being lifted up by the Andrej actor in the dance and by the Baruska actress for the night time scene, in which she needs to be still enough to appear sound asleep (no fidgeting allowed!) She may be in an additional moment in the second half during another song.

Suggestions by Spotlight Link or by email including details of age, height, location, any experience or training (dance, drama classes etc) to: info@debbieobrien.net with ONCE - CARDIFF in the subject line

Look Back in Anger by John Osborne

Look Back in Anger by John Osborne

Audition: Sunday 2 February 2020 7 – 9.30 pm
Performance week: 22 – 25 April 2020 (all evening performances, no matinees)
We will be rehearsing Tuesday and Thursday evenings (7.30 – 9.30 pm) and Sunday evenings (7 – 9.30 pm) from 23rd February 2020


GST invites you to audition for our next production: John Osborne’s post-war classic Look Back in Anger.
Directed by Michael Reffold (Assistant Director for Garden Suburb Theatre’s acclaimed open-air production of Our Country’s Good in July 2019), Look Back in Anger explores the breakdown of a marriage between original 'angry young man”'Jimmy Porter and his wife Alison, who Jimmy resents for being of a higher social class than him. Their relatively stable life in a small, dingy apartment with Jimmy’s friend Cliff is disrupted by the arrival of Helena, a long-time friend of Alison’s, who seems to have her own agenda and turns their existence on its head.
With a number of intense stand-offs, characters with depth, and a host of psychological avenues to explore, this dark 50s drama is sure to be explosive.
Please note that this play contains adult themes, including domestic abuse, which will be explored in a sensitive manner but may not be suitable for everyone.
Look Back in Anger will be GST’s entry into the Barnet & District Drama Festival Awards (the Barnies) for 2020.RIf you have any questions about the show or this audition notice, please feel free to contact us on lookbackinanger@gardensuburbtheatre.org.uk

Audition Dates: Sunday 2nd February 2020
Performance Dates: Wednesday 22nd – Sunday 26th April 2020


The Brookside Theatre are looking for strong actors to join the cast of their April production, the London premiere of CLUE - the stage adaption of the cult 80s movie starring Tim Curry & Christopher Lloyd; based on the Hasbro board game, Cluedo.
About the show... On a dark and stormy night, six unique guests, a butler and a maid, assemble for a dinner party at the home of Mr. Boddy. When their host turns up dead, it is clear that no one is safe! Soon the guests are racing to find the killer as the body count stacks up.
This uproarious new comedy is based on the popular 1985 Paramount movie, starring Tim Curry, Michael McKean and Christopher Lloyd and inspired by the classic Hasbro board game.
Murder and blackmail are on the menu but was it Mrs. Peacock in the Study with the Knife? Or, perhaps Colonel Mustard in the Library with the Wrench? It’s the whodunit that will leave both cult-fans and newcomers ‘dying' of laughter.
A madcap comedy whodunit that will keep you guessing - and laughing - to the very end.
Rehearsals are held at the theatre on Monday and Wednesday evenings and Sunday daytimes by a schedule.

The Woman Who Cooked Her Husband

The Woman Who Cooked Her Husband by Debbie Isitt

Contact: via our website or social media


Read through on 4 February 2020 7:30pm
Performance: 13-16 May 2020


BCP are delighted to announce auditions for their May 2020 production of Debbit Isitt’s dark, culinary comedy The Woman Who Cooked Her Husband.
This is not your usual play. It is very unusual. It is funny, quirky, dark and shocking – a story of revenge and greed. A wife is rejected and scorned, a mistress is belittled, and a husband just wants his cake and eat it. Played out against an Elvis soundscape - with beehives, brothel creepers and jiving - the play will be performed cabaret-style (audience sat at tables, enjoying 1950s refreshments and getting a chance to try their hand at jiving). The audience will be encouraged to dress in 1950s costume and the actors will mingle with the audience engaging them in the plotting and final revenge.
This is relatively short for a full length play so there is no interval and, although food plays a major role in the development of the storyline, there is no actual food. In fact, there are no props at all. They are all mimed.
Hilary and Kenneth have been married for nearly 20 years. As middle-age approaches, Kenneth finds himself in the arms of another woman. At first, Laura embodies all that is missing from his married life but Kenneth’s fling gets desperately out of hand and his world spirals into deceit and lies. Finally he is forced to leave Hilary. The only problem is that Laura can’t cook and Kenneth mourns the loss of his Sunday roasts. He sneaks back to Hilary’s house for her culinary delights. When Hilary invites them both for dinner, Kenneth has no idea what delicacies Hilary has planned ...

Roles available:
Hilary (wife) – 40s-50s
Laura (mistress) - 20s-30s
Kenneth (husband) – 40s-50s
In addition, we would love to have an “Elvis look/sound-alike” as part of the production. If you think you could be just what we’re looking for, please come along or get in touch for further details.
There will be a read through on 4 February 2020 at The Mill Arts Centre, Banbury, 7.30pm, where you’ll have the opportunity to learn more about the production and what to expect at auditions. The Open Audition will be held on 20 February 2020, 7.30pm, also at The Mill Arts Centre.
Everyone is welcome. You do not need to be a member to audition but will be required to join if cast. Details of membership can be found on the Get Involved page of the BCP website.
The production runs 13-16 May 2020 at The Mill Arts Centre. You will need to be available from Sunday 10 May 2020 for Technical and Dress rehearsals.
If you would like any further information about the auditions, please email us at contactus@banburycrossplayers.org.uk. We look forward to seeing you!

Anyone may audition to play a part in a Barn Theatre production: you don't have to be a member, but we ask you to join the club if you are selected.
Tom Stoppard's award-winning study of the pain and pleasure of love
SYNOPSIS
Tom Stoppard's brilliant, award-winning play was premiered at London's Strand Theatre in 1982.
The play begins with Max and Charlotte, a couple whose marriage seems about to rupture. But nothing one sees on a stage is the real thing, and some things are less real than others. Charlotte is an actress who has been appearing in a play about marriage by her husband, Henry. Max, her leading man, is also married to an actress, Annie. Both marriages are at the point of rupture because Henry and Annie have fallen in love. But is it the real thing?
In The Real Thing, Tom Stoppard combines his characteristically brilliant wordplay and wit with flashes of insight that illuminate the nature--and the mystery--of love, creating a multi-toned play that challenges the mind while searching out the innermost secrets of the heart.

This is an hilarious spoof of the best Agatha Christie traditions, with an assembled cast of characters guaranteed to delight: Bunting the butler, an English Colonel with the prerequisite stiff upper lip, a shady French art dealer and his moll, bumbling local inspectors and a well meaning local sleuth who seems to attract murder - they’re all here, and all caught up in the side-splitting antics which follow the mysterious death of the owner of a country manor house. But will the murderer be unmasked before everyone else has met their doom, or will audiences die laughing first?

Auditions:
Tuesday, 25th February - 8.00 p.m.
Thursday, 27th February - 8.00 pm.
Performances: 15th, 16th, 22nd and 23rd May, 2020.


Frank Galvin is a washed-up veteran lawyer and an alcoholic, now reduced to ambulance-chasing cases. He is presented with one last chance to redeem himself when he is given an open-and-shut medical malpractice case that no one thinks he can win. Up against the unforgiving Boston medical establishment, he courageously refuses an out-of-court settlement, believing it is negligence that has condemned a young mother to life in a coma and not simply an unfortunate accident. Smelling a cover-up, he instead takes the case and the entire legal system to court.
Based on the novel by Barry Reed, The Verdict was filmed by Sidney Lumet starring Paul Newman, James Mason and Charlotte Rampling, and Margaret May Hobbs’ stage adaptation of Reed’s courtroom thriller was produced by Middle Ground Theatre Company on a UK national tour in 2017 starring Clive Mantle and Jack Shepherd.

Synopsis
Paul has made a killing with a computer game he invented in a fit of pique at his dad, who thought he was wasting the advantages a privileged childhood had bought him.
Alan plots retribution on the man he holds responsible for murdering his son. But did he neglect his own duty, leaving his son unprotected and with no idea what it means to be a man?
Davey, raised in poverty by his mum, is left negotiating his violent neighbourhood, where everyone turns a blind eye to the bullies who hold sway.
In this heartbreaking, painful three-hander, these interconnected stories – told through a series of compelling monologues – gradually interconnect to reveal a devastating tale of violence, loss and revenge.

Based on the Oscar-winning DreamWorks Animation film, Shrek The Musical is a Tony Award-winning fairy tale adventure featuring all new songs from Jeanine Tesori (Thoroughly Modern Millie, Caroline or Change) and a sidesplitting book by David Lindsay-Abaire. Shrek brings all the beloved characters you know from the film to life on stage, and proves there’s more to the story than meets the ears.
'Once upon a time, there was a little ogre named Shrek…' And thus begins the tale of an unlikely hero who finds himself on a life-changing journey alongside a wisecracking Donkey and a feisty princess who resists her rescue. Throw in a short tempered bad guy, a cookie with an attitude, and over a dozen other fairy tale misfits, and you’ve got the kind of mess that calls for a real hero. Luckily, there’s one on hand…and his name is Shrek.

Old Fools by Tristan Bernays

Contact: via social media


Audition Date: Monday 13th January 8:00.
Performance Dates: 11th to 13th June 2020 at June Norden Farm Arts Centre.
Rehearsals from March.


Versatile enthusiastic actor required or the part of Viv for an exciting Red Hot Theatre production of Old Fools by Tristan Bernays. June 11th - 13th 2020 at Norden Farm Arts Centre Maidenhead (with a few pop-up shows thereafter to be confirmed).
Old Fools is a surprising, touching and challenging 75 minute play about love, life and fleeting memories following the lives of the couple Tom and Viv. Playing age 40s/50s - the actor portraying Viv plays her at various stages of her life, as well as other characters from Tom’s life including his daughter as a young child and teenager. The play seamlessly slides through memories, times and places. Preference for someone who can do a bit of ballroom dancing or at least can learn. But that is only a small element of the play.
Two rehearsals per week from mid March to June with two weeks off during Easter (mid April). Rehearsal days and venue to be agreed by director and cast after auditions. Likely to be in Maidenhead area.
Auditions to be held on the evening of Monday 14th January at venue to be decided. Be great but not essential if you can read play beforehand and you will be asked to perform short extracts with ‘Tom' - no line learning required!!
Please private message me to book a slot or if you want to know more. Please share to anyone who may be interested or other theatre groups!

Directed by Lissy Malt
The action takes place in May 1822 in a fine old country house belonging to the widowed Lady Lambroke. Threatened by rural unrest and her own impoverishment, Lady Lambroke has arranged for her seventeen-year-old daughter Hannah to be married off to an English aristocrat to pay off her debts. A defrocked Anglican minister, the Reverend Berkeley, arrives at the house with his philosopher acquaintance Charles Audelle, tasked with chaperoning the girl to England. The two men, however, are enthralled by Hannah's reputation for extrasensory awareness, and intend to put it to the test, regardless of the consequences.

Hannah Lambroke, her daughter (17)
Maria Lambroke, known as ‘Grandie’, Madeleine’s Grandmother (70s/80s)

Cinderella

Cinderella

We are pleased to announce that auditions for Area Fifty-Fun Interrupts: Cinderella will be held next Thursday the 30th (5-7pm) and Friday the 31st (6-8pm)

This original family production will premier at Brighton Fringe 2020, where it has been programmed for six shows, with the possibility of participating in other Fringe events. Two major roles (Daisy and Alien) and two minor roles (Amie and Special Agent) are to be filled. Please see poster.
Those who audition must be available to commit to two 2hr rehearsals a week from February to the end of May. Actors will be paid via profit-share at the end of the run.

About Area Fifty-Fun:
Meet Daisy, a shy and talented stage manager and Amie, a loudmouth from Essex. They are trying to put on the perfect production of Cinderella, but what happens when a zany alien crash lands into their set?

Area Fifty-Fun Interrupts: Cinderella is an out of this world, eccentric family show full of heart that celebrates being yourself!

Characters:
Daisy: 20-35, female, must play piano and sing.
Everything but the star in the production of Cinderella. Lacking in confidence, kind, multi-talented.
[Think Cinderella meets Matilda]
Alien: 20-35, any gender, must play piano and sing.
A runaway from Planet Veeg grappling with (his) individuality. Friendly, eccentric, curious.
[Think Buddy the Elf, Drop Dead Fred]RAmie: 20-35, female.
A terrible actor playing the role of Cinderella, speaks with harsh Essex accent. Egotistical, bossy, a bully.
[Think The Only Way is Essex]
Special Agent: 20+, male.
Has no character per se, is a generic goon in a black suit. [Think The Matrix]

Auditionees must book audition slots in advance!
Audition pieces and slots available on request from: areafiftyfunproduction@gmail.com
Kindest regards,
Sadhbh Moriarty
Director, Area-Fifty Fun
