Forth Children’s Theatre is proud to announce its 2010 Fringe production of Guys and Dolls.
The show will run from 6th – 14th August and be performed at Inverleith Church Hall, Ferry Road. It will be directed by Claire Stewart who will be revisiting the show that she first directed to critical acclaim in 2002. Claire’s most recent production for FCT was 2008’s Jekyll & Hyde.
Set in the 1940’s, Guys and Dolls is a highly popular piece of musical theatre known for memorable characters, hilarious dialogue and a fantastic score. This winning formula is sure to have audiences on their feet. Featuring classic songs such as Rocking the Boat and Luck be a Lady, there is something for everyone in the big company numbers. We are looking for boys and girls with a talent for acting, singing and dancing. There is a range of principal parts as well as strong chorus roles to be filled. Please note that you must be over ten by show date in order to audition.
Auditions are being held on Tuesday 6th April at Trinity Academicals Rugby Club, Craighall Gardens from 10:00 – 16:00. Please wear comfortable clothing and shoes that are suitable for dance and movement. It is also advised to bring a packed lunch as there may not be time to go to the shops.
The day will take the format of morning workshops followed by small group auditions in front of the directing team. It will be a brilliant experience and involve lots of fun, dancing and meeting new people! All material will be learnt in the morning so there is no need to plan anything in advance. Please be prepared to stay until 16:00 although there is chance you may be able to leave earlier depending on when each group is seen.
Rehearsals are due to start on Friday 23rd April 18:30 – 21:30. Rehearsals will always take place on a Friday night and Sunday afternoon for the company, with principals sometimes being required on a Wednesday evening.
For casting purposes, filming of auditions may take place on the day. Please highlight to Claire Stewart in advance if there are any problems with this.
It would be much appreciated if you could pass this information onto anyone that you think may be interested.
