The play runs from Wednesday 5th – Saturday 15th July 2017.

The plot revolves around Bertie Wooster deciding to stage a one-man show revolving around his recent experiences at Totleigh Towers, where Bertie is unwittingly called upon to play matchmaker and steal a silver cow creamer. But in typical Wooster fashion, nothing has gone to plan and the show is not ready to be staged. In desperation, he enlists the ever dependable Jeeves and another valet, Seppings, to help him stage the production, with Bertie as himself and both Jeeves and Seppings playing multiple characters. Events quickly spiral out of control, prompting Jeeves to step in to make sure all ends well.

Auditions will be held at 7.00pm on Sunday 26th February in the main theatre.

We are looking for three men to play the roles of “Jeeves”, “Wooster” and “Seppings”. The actors need to be great at comedy and improvisation and have a great sense of fun. They can be any age but Bertie Wooster needs to be the youngest, roughly in his twenties/thirties. Jeeves and Seppings will play multiple parts.

The rehearsal period will be short but intense; Sunday afternoons/eves, Monday, Wednesday, Friday eves from 4th June.

Edith in the Dark Auditions

Production Dates   Monday October 23rd – Saturday October 29th 2017

Celebrated children’s author Edith Nesbit (The Railway Children, Five Children & It) retreats to her attic writing room during one of her husband’s tiresome parties with her housekeeper and an unexpected, handsome party guest.

As midnight swiftly approaches, Edith gives a reading of her work. Not one of her cherished children’s tales, but her terrifying early horror stories.

As the stories unfold it becomes clear all is not what it seems…Someone in the attic is hiding a deadly secret.
Edith in the Dark is a haunting glimpse into the nightmarish inner world of an author whose reputation for cosy childhood innocence is only half the story.

Audition Dates

Read through of play - Sunday 9th April 7pm              

Main Auditions - Thursday 13th April 7.30pm        

Both will be held in the main theatre.

Characters

EDITH NESBIT – In her forties, Edith is astute and brilliant but unhappy. She’s quick witted and has an eye for a younger man. She’s a very modern woman for the era in which she lives. But almost everything she does is a diversion from her own personal heartbreak and secrets.

MR. GUASTO – Tall, strident and handsome. He arrives uninvited but when he helps Edith with an ailing guest gets more than he bargained for. He’s a huge fan of Edith’s work, but since he has a terrible fear of the grave, is not expecting the night that lies ahead of him.

BIDDY THRICEFOLD – Biddy is a terrible housekeeper and rather too fond of her own home-made spiced punch. She loves Edith and despite the banter the feeling is mutual. The character supplies a lot of the humour in the early part of the play but has a terrible secret of her own that she finally finds a way to share.
All three actors also play the multiple roles featured in the stories within the play regardless of gender or age. The ability to adopt different accents and characteristics is essential.
