(Updated June 2021) Details of auditions for December 2021’s Bedroom Farce will be published here.

How do auditions take place at Theatre 62?

Theatre 62 usually 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, 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.
