Open Audition: Love's Labour's Lost
This year we're staging a production of William Shakespeare's early comedy, "Love's Labour's Lost". There is no need to prepare anything, as full details will be given out at the audition itself. All you need to bring is an open mind and a sense of fun as you will be well looked after by this year's director, Hayley Joanne Bacon.
The auditions are open to anyone over the
age of 16 and will be held at 8pm, at Fairkytes Arts Centre, Billet
Lane, Hornchurch, RM11 1AX.
production will be staged during the last two weeks of June 2015 and
prospective cast members must be available for all performances.
Rehearsals are held between 8pm and 10pm, on Tuesday and Thursday
evenings at Ardleigh House, Hornchurch, as well as from 11am - 1.30pm on
Sunday mornings in Raphael Park. Not
everyone will be called for every rehearsal and the rehearsal period
will start from Tuesday 7 April 2015.
Now is an ideal time for a revival of the
play, which we've not staged at The Rockery since 1985, as it is also
currently being performed by the Royal Shakespeare Company at Stratford-upon-Avon, which will increase interest in the play.
Hayley is keen to note that she was first interested in staging the
play over a year ago, so the RSC has not swayed our decision over the
choice of production!
Whilst the RSC have gone for an Edwardian
setting, our production will be a very modern affair, with an aim of
showing today's audiences that fashions may change, but some things
definitely stay the same!
