We work with dedicated theatre professionals who genuinely care about producing great
theatre. ‘Professional’ doesn’t necessarily mean ‘professionally trained’. For us
it means a commitment to and respect for the work you do and the people you work
with. We expect all company members to demonstrate a positive, can-do approach to
their work. Actors should have excellent performance skills, and most roles require
the ability to sing to a high standard and play a musical instrument. Company stage
managers should have relevant technical skills, experience in relighting and the
capacity to lead a small team. All our productions are run on the understanding of
shared responsibility, which means that all company members are expected to help
with off-stage duties such as get-ins, get-outs, driving, washing costumes and repairing
What do auditions entail?
Depending on the director, auditions will either be individual or in groups. Usually
we will ask you to perform a short monologue of your choosing and read various extracts
from the show. Therefore, familiarity with what you’re auditioning for is recommended!
Depending on the requirements of the role, you may also be asked to sing a song,
play your musical instrument and participate in a simple movement workshop. We’re
aware that auditions can be nerve-wracking, and we do our best to make them an enjoyable
experience. Ultimately we want you to show yourself at your best! We will contact
you by phone after the audition regardless of whether or not you have been successful.
What’s a typical day on tour?
You leave the hotel at 9am and drive to the theatre, arriving at 11am. After getting
the set into the theatre, there may be one or two things to do to support the company
stage manager as the lights are rigged. During the afternoon the CSM works with the
venue technicians to focus and plot the lighting, while the actors are generally
free to explore the local sights, shop or get forty winks, and at 5pm there’s time
on stage to walk through anything tricky and do a musical warm-up. The performance
begins at 7.30pm, ending at 9.45pm, and straight afterwards everyone helps get the
set, props and costumes back into the van before travelling to a local hotel for
a good night’s sleep!
