Details of the January 2014 auditions for The Tempest in July 2014 are below:
Auditions take place in advance of productions to allow the Director to assemble the cast. Each Director has his/her own way of auditioning; some prefer to read straight from the text, others choose to try improvisation; some a mixture of both. Auditions can often be a lot of fun, and gives an actor a chance to try out different parts.
At Theatre 62 we like to welcome new faces to the stage as well as longer-standing regulars. Most auditions are ‘open’, which means non-members are welcome to come along and audition. If you are successful you will need to join us (for a small fee) as a full member!
Auditions are held at Wickham Theatre Centre, click here for location information
