This is a high-style, British romantic farce set in the Edwardian era.
It requires highly trained actors who sing beautifully and have great
comic skills. All roles are open to audition and are similar stylistically
to characters in Oscar Wilde plays. British accents are required for all
roles. There is also an ensemble of six, all of whom play important
roles throughout the play; solo singing required by all. All auditionees
must be at least 18 years old.
Those auditioning will be asked to sing up to one minute of an
uptempo musical theatre song, in the style of the show. The song
should show off character, different voices, facial expression,
physicality & range.
Auditioners should mark their selection with a highlighter. An
accompanist will be provided. A cappella singing or recorded
accompaniments will not be allowed
Auditioners should also prepare a short, engaging paragraph, no
more than 3-5 lines, which is from a published work such as a play,
novel, or even a children’s book, that shows off word play, comedy,
satire, and good rapport with an audience, etc. No monologue length
speeches. We would just like something quick that can act as an intro
or narration to a character or situation.
Please note: Audition appointment spaces are limited and filled on a
first-come, first served basis.
Successful cast members MUST BE available for rehearsal period commencing
8 June 2021 as well as all production dates. Please check you are available for
all performance dates before booking your audition time. Please also inform the
Director at your audition, if there is a possibility of you taking on professional
acting work that may conflict with rehearsal and performance dates.
