Coronavirus allowing, we return to one of our favourite venues to follow up 2018’s acclaimed production of The Lion, The Witch & The Wardrobe with another CS Lewis classic from the same beloved series: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader.
Auditions will take place in Sept 2020, with forms available here on the website from August. You will need to pre-book a slot and have it confirmed, as we won’t be there if we aren’t expecting you!
Once you have submitted an audition form, we will get back to you to confirm ASAP and, as is company policy, everyone who auditions will also receive a follow-up email to let them know the results once all auditions have been held and the production cast.
Rehearsals will begin slowly in October and then pick up pace in early November. They will be held on Saturday afternoons and two weekday evenings every week from then on, although not all actors will be required for each rehearsal.
Towards the end of the week before the show we will move into the church. The FULL cast will be required for all final rehearsals.

The ensemble will play a vital role in this production and will need to function as a close-knit team throughout. Among other things, ensemble members may be required to fight (under the guidance of our Fight Director), dance, and sing together!
With this in mind, the auditions will be held in small groups and will take roughly an hour and a half to two hours each. They will begin with a few group activities, then there will be time for questions about the production etc before a tea break during which you will have time to read through some scenes. After tea, you will then run through those scenes with your fellow auditionees in a variety of combinations!
If you are interested in getting involved, please check the website for more details closer to the time and then get in touch.
We look forward to hearing from you – and to seeing you soon! 🙂
