 Audition dates for your diary

We will update this page on a regular basis with information about auditions for our future productions. 

Our next main production:


The Assembly Women, by Aristophanes, directed by Annie Bowie
A comedy about men, women, politics and power
12-17 November 2018

First performed in Athens 392 BCE, this play presents the opportunity for great comedy, and if the team works well, some end of play interaction with your audience. Aristophanes presents us with an Athens that is in decline and malfunctioning to the extent that the unthinkable becomes possible – women get a crack at things…

Join The Assembly Women for fun, false beards, chorus work and defined characters, including the men. We’re looking to cast 10 female roles and 5 men (with possible doubling).

The audition will be on Sunday 2nd September from 11-3. Please bring lunch – Greek salad perhaps?

Annie, who directed King Lear and The Man Who Mistook His Wife For A Hat, is really looking forward to working with us again and we’re pleased to welcome her back to Studio 31.

Rehearsed Readings

These will be one-night only script-in-hand performances. They're a chance for you to be in a show, but to only have to attend 3-4 rehearsals and not learn lines!

Bazaar and Rummage, by Sue Townsend, directed by Ceni Wyatt

Performance - Saturday 29th September, 7.30pm

Audition - Thursday 30th August, 7.30pm

This play is about a group of women at a jumble sale. We're going to hold a real jumble sale too, in Studio 31, on the day of the show (11-2). What we don't sell will be the set.

The Exorcism, by Don Taylor, directed by Mavis Jones

Performance - Wednesday 31st October, 7.30pm

Audition – Sunday 30th September, 10.30am - 12.30pm

This play features two couples and a very scary cottage. We’ve deliberately chosen something spooky for Halloween.
