Auditions for Cast and Crew Members

If you would like to become a cast or crew member for one of our productions, there are a few things you should do:-

  • Join our mailing list and make sure you tick one or both of the boxes on the form to indicate whether you are interested in cast and/or crew roles. You should also fill in the box asking for your specific interests.
  • Read the Auditions FAQ, which will tell you what you need to know to prepare for the audition.

Unseen Theatre Company produces 2 plays per year – usually in April and October. Auditions for these plays are usually held 3 months prior to the performance dates.

Here are some general things you need to know about our auditions:-

  • Auditions are usually held as “cold” group readings of excerpts from the script – so no need to prepare anything, and no need to make an individual audition time.
  • However – you must notify the Director via email of your intention to attend the auditions so that we know how many people to expect.
  • It is to your advantage to read (before attending auditions) anything by our usual author Sir Terry Pratchett so that you are familiar with the genre of the play.
  • If you would like the Director to also hear a prepared monologue please notify the Director at the time and stay after the group reading for her to listen to it.
  • Rehearsals are held 3 times per week – usually Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday evenings for a period of 10 weeks before the performance dates.
