Auditions take place in advance of productions to allow the Director to assemble their cast.
Theatre 62 holds a read-through ahead of auditions to allow interested auditionees to better familiarise themselves with the play and to meet the Director.
Each Director has her/his 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. However, if you are successful you will need to join Theatre 62 as a Full Member.
Auditions are held at Wickham Theatre Centre, location here.
