Want to be involved but don't want to act? There's always plenty to do backstage - see our membership page for details.
OH WHAT A LOVELY WAR - THE ARCADIANS - CRESCENT THEATRE - 16 - 22 NOVEMBER 2014
We are performing the above show at the Crescent Theatre later this year.
Since the auditions it is apparent that we have insufficient men for choral and group involvement. Although we are looking for young men any age group would be more than welcome.
We rehearse on Tuesdays and Fridays at St. Mary's Church Hall, Bristol Road, Selly Oak normally starting at 7.30pm. There will of course be rehearsal schedules and all the cast would not be required on all occasions.
We can be found at Arcadians.org or myself on 0121 421 1360 or mobile 07899 916995.
Many thanks in anticipation,
While auditions are intended for members, non-members are welcome to attend on the understanding that, if successful in reading for a part, you would be expected to become a member of the theatre. This entitles you to take part in all theatre activities and to concessionary ticket prices. In return you will be expected to attend all rehearsals and performances and to undertake your required allocation of front of house duties. Your membership subscription must be paid by the end of the second rehearsal. Membership fees for a year are £60 (£30 if unwaged). More details on Crescent Membership can be found in the membership pages.
The Familiarisation Reading is not an audition but an opportunity to find out more about the play, the characters and the director's ideas for the production. If you are unfamiliar with the play, try to come to this to see if you would be interested in reading for a part at the audition.
Unless stated otherwise, the venue for all readings and auditions is The Crescent Theatre.
