Flint Street Nativity posterAuditions for The Flint Street Nativity (1st – 6th December) are taking place in July. Please see below for details.


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

Dangerous Obsession poster V3 5 (1)AUDITIONS for Dangerous Obsession by N. J. Crisp

Show dates: 29th September – 4th October

Director: Patricia Melluish

Auditions are taking place at Theatre 62 on:

Monday 12th May 7.45 p.m.

Friday 16th May 7.45  p.m.

Sunday 18th May 2.30  p.m.

Patricia Melluish is directing.

Mark and Sally Driscoll are a very successful couple living in a large attractive house.  Both drive very expensive cars and seem to have everything anyone should need.  Why, therefore does the visit of John Barratt cause them to be discomforted?

Why has he called unexpectedly and uninvited?   Does he wish to sell something?  Apparently not.  All will be made clear as this very well written and constructed psychological thriller unfolds.

This play can be performed by a cast of three younger people or three more mature players. The only proviso is that all three characters are around the same age.

The characters:

Mark Driscoll -   aged between 35-50 ish

Sally Driscoll -    aged between 30 – 50

John Barrett  -   aged between 40 – 55

Mark is a businessman full of ideas which usually work out financially well.  It is possible that some of his dealings are questionable.  He enjoys expensive clothes although some would feel they were verging on the “flash” but he is full of charm which he uses to the full.

Sally has given up her career to support Mark in his business ventures.  She is an excellent hostess and arranges many business lunches and dinners at their home and the various conferences that take place during the year around the country.

John Barrett is a quiet, happily married business man who is not as successful as Mark but, seemingly, contented with his lot.

If anyone is interested but cannot come to the Auditions please phone Patricia on 01689 821 395  or email patricia.melluish@ntlworld.com
