FORMAT: Auditions are conducted in groups, doing a “cold” read from excerpts of the script. You do NOT need to make a specific individual appointment, but you do need to show up ON TIME. It is not a requirement, but you may find it useful to familiarise yourself with the book, or with any other works from Terry Pratchett. It will help you get a feel for the show. If, after the group reading you would like the Director to see an individual monologue from you, please let us know when you come in to auditions. Monologues should be no… Read more
Well the website is finally back up again! It has been rewritten onto some brand new old parchment scrolls and it has also been redesigned a little, so that you can navigate your way more easily between the scrolls without tearing them up so much and bending the corner curls over. Some things may be missing as our scribes are still working day and night to copy in all the information from the past nearly ten years of Unseen’s existence. Some material will unfortunately remain forever in room 3b. The scroll imps have also arranged things to make it possibe… Read more
Notes from Pamela, Manager of Unseen: 1. The Scrollmaster is fantastic. 2. Keep an eye out (literally that is – DON’T BLINK) for a shot of our flyer on a TV commercial for the Fringe somewhere around the middle to late January. 3. Set Designer Damien has been very busy making bridges, doors, puppets and broadswords. 4. We are looking for a cheap van to paint with our logo and various other decorations so that we can use it to drive around advertising and to cart our sets and props around, so if you know anyone who had something like… Read more
We are sad to report the death of Kerbie the rat. He lived in our ceiling and had become something of an unofficial mascot for us, as he trod the boards above us every night, squeaking his little heart out about the agonies and ecstasies of the ratty coil. In his last hours his mind started to go and he was probably in great pain. He had become arthritic in his old age and his treading had become just a faint scratching. There is some debate about the cause of death and it is reportedly even possible that Kerbie was… Read more

Thank you to Golem Halagor for donating some of his own clay for use in moulding masks for our next production. Halagor said he had been scraping extra bits off his body for nearly a year now, and saving them in a jar for us. In similar news, we must also thank Witch Wildermia for sending in her old toenail clippings and leg hair – we’ll be using them as Nobby’s costume and the Patrician’s moustache respectively in one of our next plays.
Unseen University continues to bombard us with noisome writs, delivered by that zombie, Arcus Downe. Here is an extract of our reply to them:Unseen Uni Wizards Dear Sirs, In regard to your claim of breach of trademark, we were “Unseen” long before you were Unseen. For years, no one was seeing our plays – long before no one started seeing your lectures. We have achieved greater lack of recognition and publicity than has your university. Should you continue with this campaign, we will with reluctance have to withdraw your annual complimentary tickets to our main play, and you will not… Read more
Lost/Found MR ARCUS DOWNE, a zombie, has lost an arm. When exiting from The Bucket main doors last night, arms first, Mr Downe was side-swiped by a large passing troll and both arms were knocked off. The troll failed to remain at the scene or stop and leave his name and number. The City Watch is now looking for the troll, who is about 9 feet tall and of granite appearance. One of the arms was recovered and stitched back on, but the other arm was last seen in the mouth of a large dog, which took off down the… Read more
Unseen’s cash box has just been sitting here in the office for a long time now (ignored by the Thieves Guild of course, the snobs, no it’s all forgotten now). So we decided to apply to open an account at a new bank in Ankh Morkpork, called “Eezy Banking”. After 3 months of nothing happening, we finally received our application parchment back in the mail only to find that it had been rejected! The problem was marked in heavy red ink. We had not filled out the form correctly. We had failed to specify whether the account holder was a… Read more
Thieves broke in last night and stole a pair of shoes used by Detritus in our last play from our Costume Department (the wardrobe in Pamela’s study). We are glad to be finally getting some recognition from the Thieves Guild and look forward to a relationship and spirit of further co-operation between our guilds in the future. Perhaps even a BBQ (BYO or SYO) will be arranged and they might even come and steal some Hogswatch cards from us. To remind readers, we requested the shoes to be stolen about 5 months ago. Certainly no one in our theatre company… Read more
