Cold Reading

(Boeing Boeing)

 

Our "cold" readings, by no means, are considered formal auditions,

however it is one way our directors are able to assess whether

you might fit the part of a specific character for future readings.

The process usually includes a gathering of those who are interested in

reading in front of a small audience where directors are present.

An Inspector Calls

(John Brentley - Director)

An Inspector Calls is a play written by English dramatist J. B. Priestley, first performed in September 1945 in the Soviet Union and in 1946 in the UK. It is one of Priestley's best known works for the stage, and is considered to be one of the classics of mid-20th century English theatre.

The play takes place on a single night in April 1912, focusing on the prosperous upper middle-class Birling family, who live in a comfortable home in the fictional town of Brumley, "an industrial city in the north Midlands". The family is visited by a man calling himself Inspector Goole, who questions the family about the suicide of a young working-class woman, Eva Smith (also known as Daisy Renton). Long considered part of the repertory of classic "drawing room" theatre, the play has also been hailed as a scathing criticism of the hypocrisies of Victorian and Edwardian English society.

Rude Mechanicals

(Joan Tarver - Director)

A Fun Evening with Shakespeare - Hamlet, Othello - you don't expect

The Bard to be a bundle of laughs, but director, Joan Tarver, promises a hilarious experience with her adaptation of scenes from Shakespeare's best-loved comedy,

"A Midsummer Night's Dream". A victorious Thesues is about to marry Hippolyta, defeated Queen of the Amazons. Feisty fairies bicker and plot and cause no end of trouble for the Rude Mechanicals - this band of singularly untalented amateurs - as they rehearse a play they hope to perform to celebrate the forth coming nuptials. Will rival factions reconcile their differences? Can Bottom the Weaver succeed in his bid for stardom? Come and enjoy the fun and frolics.
