Auditions for Doctor Faustus - Attend 1st Date


Get Directions

#var:page_name# cover

We are holding auditions for all parts, with the exception of Faustus and Mephistopheles, over 2 dates and those auditioning may need to attend both.

The first is Wednesday 18 April from 7:30pm at Shakespeare House. We will be seeing people individually in a traditional style audition. Auditionees will need to have their chosen piece from the A text of Dr Faustus prepared.

The second date is Sunday 22nd April at 2pm. This will be a workshop style audition for those who were successful on the Wednesday. Everyone will be in a room together to see how different pairs and groups work together.

Niki intends to double and even treble up parts in this production, so you will need to be prepared to read for more than one role. The core ensemble will be made up of the Seven Deadly Sins who will then play most of the other parts with a couple of exceptions such as the devil and the old man/woman.

We've had a lot of interest already and anticipate that competition will be stiff. We'll try to make the audition process as relaxed and informal as possible, but we strongly recommend that you do your homework.

Anyone can audition for any role, Niki has no preconceptions regarding gender, age etc.

If you want a copy of Niki's edited script you can drop me a line by email (below) and I'll send it to you.

If you can't make those dates let me know.
Many thanks
Emma Duder, PA to the Director
