Full details of the production and audition requirements are in the Audition Pack (download here)
Auditions will be held on Wed 19th and Sat 22nd June – auditionees will need to attend both sessions:
• 6.30pm - 8.30pm Wed 19th Jun – Information Briefing and Audition Workshops
• One hour on Sat 22nd Jun – Individual Auditions and Character Workshop (time dependent on which character you are auditioning for – see Audition Pack for details)
This show will require lead actors who can command the stage and deliver the complex storyline. However, the production will also require an ensemble of versatile actors, with good physical movement skills to create a number of choreographed ensemble scenes and to fill the many cameo roles available. The casting will be non-gender specific, unless specified in the character notes. Whilst some of the principal roles will require older teenagers to portray the characters, there will be roles for some younger members. Full Character Notes are available here:
