Auditions for Stepping Out (in February 2015) take place in October – please see 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 for 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

Mavis takes an evening class in tap dancing attended by a wide variety of people, nine ladies and just one man. They are of a very mixed ability, but due to Mavis’s efforts they achieve great success in a local dance festival.
|Mavis||The teacher. Highly professional, but warm and caring.|
|Dorothy||Anxious and always tries to please. Works in an office. Has a bicycle!|
|Lynne||The youngest member of the group. Very pleasant and likeable. A nurse in the local hospital.|
|Mrs Fraser||An older lady. Dour and pessimistic. She is the lady pianist of the class, but it would be possible to record the music – but as a last resort.|
|Maxine||Very confident. Owns her own dress shop, so is always busy buying and selling.|
|Andy||Lacks confidence and is the worst dancer of the group. Unhappy marriage, so the class is an escape for her. Is attracted to Godfrey.|
|Vera||Always expensively dressed. Has an older well-to-do husband and is excessively fussy, but sometimes betrays her humble beginnings.|
|Silvia||Very bubbly and rather common. Husband moonlights as a window cleaner.|
|Rose||An Afro-Caribbean lady. Has three children and is a great character.|
|Godfrey||A self-effacing and negative character. A widower, he works in an insurance office.|
