AUDITIONS ARE BEING HELD ON SUNDAY 9TH SEPTEMBER.
This production is being produced by The Essex Group in association with The Young Peoples Theatre of Essex and
auditions are conducted OPEN which means that anyone can audition, you do not have to be an existing member of
Casting is being decided by a general audition and from that Gary & Ann Sullivan will cast the various roles.
The general audition will involve you in a singing audition and 3 very brief dialogue pieces.
You will need to sing a song of YOUR choice – one which best shows off your voice and which you can comfortably
sing without holding the words.
You will need to provide a backing track so you can sing to that.
Here are the dialogue pieces. Acquaint yourself with them – you will be asked to read them at the audition so that
our director can establish which parts would best suit you.
Now don’t laugh, don’t titter! I know I must look like a sack of spuds but I am
going on a diet, the only problem is, I haven’t decided when that will be. Before
or after the cream cakes! I tried to fit into a dress I used to wear when I was a
teenager but once I realised I could only expect to get one leg in I thought it
best to slip into something a little more relaxing. Like a Marquee!
Oh to be in love. Have you ever been in love? Isn’t it just a wonderful feeling?
It’s like eating your best sweets, watching the bestest film ever and not having
to go to bed early like you do on school night. That’s the kind of feeling you get
when you’re in love, except; you don’t have to clean your teeth afterwards like
you do when you eat loads of sweets!
Oh shut your Gob you! I don’t tolerate fools and you lot are a bunch of fools.
Look at you all, sitting there dribbling into a bag of popcorn and supping on a
can of Diet seven up! Your teeth will rot and don’t expect me to be picking up
your nashers! Now I’m in need of a wife whocan slave over a hot stove and do
my washing, ironing and other domestic chores. If she looks hot that’s a bonus
– so, where do I start looking!!
Greetings, I am of ancient historical heritage. I am a a special advisor to high
ranking tyrant of the year, the most regal and most honourable villain the Sultan
of Inzybar. I know what you are thinking. Where is He? Well he is inzybar with
Wozie Woz ear. I know he in Inzybar with Wozie because somebody asked me if
Wozie was here and I ascertained that he was here and that Wozie Woz ear was
inzybar with the Sultan. And you try saying that with a lisp!
