How we run the Audition

Whips and non-Whips members are welcome to audition. If you would like to come please let us know and if possible, the part(s) you are interested in and your previous experience.

A casting committee comprising Director and two Committee Members will run the audition and choose the cast.

On the night you will be asked to read from the script and interact with others for the parts that you are interested in and possibly other parts.

At the end of the audition, all adjourn to the local pub while choices are made by the Casting Committee.

The Director will then come to the pub and inform everyone of the choices made.

Then the fun starts !!!!!!
