2022 Play Readings and Auditions

We have now completed our auditions and most of our 2022 shows are cast. Thank you to everyone who came and shared their time and talent with us. Unfortunately, we're still in need of Cinderella's Prince and Jack. Without these characters we would unfortunately have to put the show on hold (which we of course don't want to do). So if you or anyone you know is interested in joining our community and taking to the stage at Chatsworth house please do be sure to get in touch! Character descriptions are below.

Jack (as in Jack and the Beanstalk) - Male/Male Identifying, playing age late teens, tenor voice. Jack is on the cusp of manhood. He loves animals and is still young enough to live at home and be answerable to his mother, but is pushing for more independence. He wants to prove himself, but is always travelling back and forth across that line that separates teenage boy from man.

Cinderella's Prince - Male/Male Identifying, playing age mid-20s/late-30s, baritone. Tall, vain, charming, constantly pursuing his appetites and convincing others to do the same.

Key Dates

Rehearsals begin: w/c July 18th, two evenings a week: Mondays or Tuesdays, and Fridays, with Sunday afternoon rehearsals starting September 11th. One evening will be for everyone to learn the ensemble numbers and there will be a call sheet for the second evening to work on smaller scenes and individual songs. We are aware that with rehearsals running through the summer holidays people will be away for some of these dates. We will attempt to schedule rehearsals to accommodate this but ask that ho holidays are taken after the first week of September.

Get-in and Tech Rehearsal: at Chatsworth House October 7th

Dress Rehearsal: at Chatsworth House October 11th

Performances: at Chatsworth House Oct 12, 13, 14, 15
