2024's summer production will be Macbeth, in a Dark Ages setting. The cast requirements are below
- there is a lot of flexibility around women playing 'male' roles. We welcome newcomers to the
Auditions will be from 9am - 12 noon, and from 2pm - 5pm, on Saturday December 2nd, at The
Pound in Corsham. The company AGM will be between 12 noon and 2pm.
There will be a weekend read through at some point in the spring, with rehearsals starting Sunday
21st April and every Sunday after that till the production week, from 10am - 4pm, at Cleeve House,
Additional rehearsals on weekday evenings will also be in Seend. It is sometimes possible to
arrange lifts to rehearsals and performances, but we can't guarantee that.
All cast need to be available for the get in / tech / dress rehearsal weekend (29th / 30th June) and
the get out on 7th July.
All actors over 18 pay a £20 fee to take part - there is no other subscription.
Please contact me and register for one of the sessions in advance, giving also your name, contact
details, and an indication of your acting experience if you do not know me already, plus any dates
when you know you would be unavailable. If you can't make the auditions, we will aim to fix another
date in late November.
