White Christmas - Auditions for the role of 'Susan'

Audition Date: Sunday 10 June 2018 from 1.30pm
Location: Astwood Bank Primary School, Church Road, Astwood Bank, Redditch, B96 6EH

Introduction

We are looking for two girls to share the principal role of ‘Susan’ in our big production for the year - Irving Berlin’s White Christmas - being performed from Tuesday 20 November to Saturday 24 November 2018 at the Palace Theatre, Redditch.

Applicants must be generally available on Tuesday and Thursday nights from 7.30pm. A rehearsal schedule will be produced; holidays will be taken into account, and the girls will not necessarily be called every single week. Rehearsals will begin in mid-June, once the auditions have taken place, and run through to November.

Applicants must not be involved in any other activities, including at school, that would make them miss Tuesday or Thursday rehearsals from the start of October onwards.

Rehearsals will take place on Tuesdays at Community House, 103 Easemore Road, Redditch, B98 8EY. And on Thursdays at Astwood Bank Primary School, Church Road, Astwood Bank, B96 6EH.

During ‘show week’ each girl will perform in one rehearsal (either the Technical Rehearsal on Sunday 18 November or the Dress Rehearsal on Monday 19 November) plus three of the six performances.

We are looking for confident performers, with a strong singing voice, and a playing age of 12 to 14 years (actual age can be older).

This is a great opportunity for two talented youngsters to take a major role in this sparkling new production, and we welcome all enquiries/applications.

To Apply

Audition places must be booked in advance, by Thursday 8 June at the latest, by phoning our director, Tony Jay on 01527 455001 or by email: tony@redditch-operatic.co.uk – Tony will gladly answer any questions you may have in the meantime.

Thank you!
