The Voyage of the Dawn Treader

PERFORMANCE DATES: Monday 25th to Saturday 31st January 2021
VENUE: St Mary’s Barnes

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 on:
Sat 24th Oct – 3pm or 5.30pm
Mon 26th Oct – 7pm
Tues 27th Oct – 7pm
Sat 31st Oct – 12pm or 2:30pm

This is an unpaid show, being produced in aid of local charities & community organisations. 

To sign up for an audition please fill in this form:

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 in November.  They will be held on Saturday afternoons, Tuesday evenings and one weekday evenings every week from then on, although not all actors will be required for each rehearsal. 

We will move into the church during the week before the show (the week beginning Monday 18th January) and will then be rehearsing on both Thursday and Friday evening and most of the day on Saturday 23rd (tech) and Sunday 24th (Dress).  The FULL cast will be required for these 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 a fully qualified Fight Director), dance and sing together! 

With this in mind, the auditions will be held in small groups and will take roughly 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!

Auditions will take place either at  Kitson Hall  (just around the corner from St Mary’s) or in the church itself on the following dates, with different time slots available on each day:

  • Saturday 24th October at either 3pm or 5.30pm
  • Monday 26th October at 7pm
  • Tuesday 27 th October at 7pm
  • Saturday 31 st October at either 12pm or 2.30pm


Please also be aware that social distancing will be observed – if you are attending together with someone from your household or support bubble, please let us know! – sanitiser will be available and auditionees will have their temperature taken before the group session begins. If you have any further questions or queries, don’t hesitate to get in touch.

If you wish to audition for this production, please choose a date and time slot from the list above, then fill out the form below! 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. 

Thank you again for your interest. 

We look forward to hearing from you – and to seeing you soon! 🙂
