Ever wanted to perform in a play? Our new acting company is an exciting opportunity for those that have completed at least one term of Stage & the City’s Acting for Intermediates or Acting for Improvers or with equivalent experience elsewhere. This is a chance for you to put your skills into practice by building a character in a contemporary play with a public performance at a London theatre, whilst developing skills and confidence and fitting around your working life.
How does it work?
Casting is by audition only. To make sure that productions are fairly cast and as diverse as possible, the play will be chosen after the company has been cast to make sure that the play suits the performers, rather than the other way around.
The first workshop audition will be held on Monday 29th July at 7 pm – 9 pm.
The chosen play will be rehearsed on Monday evenings from 7 pm – 9 pm. The first few sessions will be skills workshops exploring the play. The rehearsals will take place over two terms with a performance at the end of the Spring term 2020. Dates are still to be decided but will be available shortly. Rehearsals may continue up until 9.30pm during the January term.
The actual show dates will be Sunday 29th March, Monday 30th March and Tuesday 31st March all at 7.30pm. You will be required to attend an all-day dress / technical rehearsal on Sunday 29th March before the evening performance.
Acting company members will be expected to attend the majority of Monday evening rehearsals. Any absences must be given to the director with plenty of notice unless an absolute emergency.
