Auditions

Auditions for The God of Carnage by Yasmina Reza translated by Christopher Hampton. Directed by Nikki Packham. 

Audition dates

Sunday 24th July 2022 at 3.00 p.m. 

Sunday 31st July 2022 at 3.00 p.m.

The God of Carnage won the Olivier Award for Best Comedy and the Tony award for Best Play. 

What happens when two sets of parents meet up to deal with the unruly behaviour of their children? A calm and rational debate between grown-ups about the need to teach kids how to behave properly? Or a hysterical night of name-calling, tantrums and tears before bedtime? Boys will be boys, but the adults are usually worse – much worse. 

2 female and 2 male characters of around 40 years of age 

Veronique Vallon – an art lover who writes about Africa but she is actually confrontational and a hypocrite 

Michel Vallon – a self-made man who owns a business selling household goods and proud of his rough upbringing 

Annette Reille – conciliatory at first but she lets rip by the end of the evening 

Alain Reille – a corporate lawyer currently defending a pharmaceutical company, receives phone calls throughout 

Please contact the Director, Nikki, on packham-in@tiscali.co.uk if you require further information or a script. Scripts will be available at Theatre 62 from early July. 

How are auditions organised at Theatre 62?

Theatre 62 oftern holds a read-through ahead of auditions to allow interested and prospective auditionees to better familiarise themselves with the play and to meet the Director.

Each Director has their own way of auditioning; some prefer to read straight from the text sometimes sitting down, sometimes moving around. Others choose to try improvisation; some a mixture of both.  Directors are keen for auditionees to try out for whichever parts they are interested. Although auditions can sometimes be a little nerve-wracking, but they’re often a lot of fun. After the auditions have taken place auditionees will be contacted by the Director with the outcome.

At Theatre 62 we like to welcome new faces to the stage, as well as longer-standing regulars.  Almost all auditions are ‘open’, which means non-members are welcome to audition.  However, if you are a successful, and a non-member, you will be required to join Theatre 62 as a Full Member at £15.

Auditions are held at Wickham Theatre Centre, location here.
