  • General Information

For each of our productions, a play reading evening is held some four to five months before the production opens.

Auditions are normally held on a Tuesday or Friday evening in the Arts Centre a few weeks later. The director and members of the production team will be on hand to welcome you and answer any questions you may have.

An Audition Notice is sent to members in the Newsletter. but is also available for downloading from this site via the link on this page. The Audition Notice contains a synopsis of the play, a description of the characters and relevant dates and contact details. It may also contain a list of audition pieces so that any potential cast members can prepare for their audition. Scripts and audition pieces will be available to borrow at the Reading.


  • Open

Auditions are open to anyone, irrespective of membership or experience.

We pride ourselves on being a company of skilled individuals, encouraging our members to take on roles in all aspects of theatre. Technicians in all disciplines are as crucial to a production as any actor. An ASM (assistant stage manager) can become a star, likewise a star can become an ASM in consecutive productions!

  • Advertising

Auditions are advised on our Facebook Page:

Please follow us and select ‘notifications’ to be kept up to date with auditions and late casting news.

  • Commitment

There are usually 12 weeks rehearsal of three evenings per week (Mon, Wed & Thu) in the Arts Centre, plus occasional Sundays for large cast shows, depending on the role. Get-in, technical rehearsal and a dress rehearsal take place on the Sunday prior to the production week. There will be a full-dress rehearsal on the Monday of the production week. All cast and crew will be expected to attend the final week of rehearsal, then both Sunday and Monday of Performance week. Lack of availability must be advised to the Director as soon as possible to avoid wasted rehearsal time.

  • Membership

If successfully cast, and not a current member, you will be expected to pay your Membership Subscription before full rehearsals begin. C’mon it’s only a fiver!
