    19:00, Tue 18th June 2019 - Sat 22nd June 2019 at Corpus Playroom
    Easter May Week

    We're looking for FOUR FEMALE/NB ACTORS to bring this weird and wonderful play to life! These characters are gonna be an absolute DREAM to craft and create! These four women provide so many amazing opportunities for you as actors to sink your teeth into; complex and sometimes crazy backstories, flawed friendships, and apocalyptic visions, there's something for everyone! They're also funny, perceptive and throughly human characters; and there's the additional excitement of delving into playing an older character and what that entails, and we'll be working on developing those skills with you over the whole term, which will be great to have in your acting repertoire! Mastering Caryl Churchill's fascinating dialogue, (while a bit scary at first!), is also gonna be so much fun; she writes just amazing stuff for women and specifically about the female experience, so get involved!

    Please don't be worried about it being exam term: we have the two advantages of it being a very short play( less than an hour) AND having the whole term to rehearse, so rehearsals shouldn't be too intensive or stressful! Also, the show will finish up pretty early so you can still get to any of your end of term festivities during May Week! If you have any concerns or queries please drop me an email at pr453

    prepare one of the extracts in the link below, can't wait to see you all there xx

    Easter Week 3

    ’GHOST: THE MUSICAL’ ARE RE-OPENING AUDITIONS FOR ODA MAE

    Ghost: The Musical is looking for a self-defining female BME actor to complete our wonderful cast line-up and to play the iconic role of Oda Mae Brown.

    After receiving no submissions in our previous round of auditions (during which we restricted the casting requirement to black female actors only), and following consultation with BME representatives from within the Cambridge theatre scene, we have decided that the best approach would be to open this role to all auditionees who self-identify as BME. We still want to ensure that the role increases the visibility of often unrepresented voices within musical theatre; however, to ensure full inclusivity we are widening the application pool as has been done in the past with other productions of this iconic musical. Such a change may require some subtle alterations to the representation of the character of Oda Mae, in particular nuances of her dialect; however, we will ensure that this is a fully collaborative process with whoever is cast such that all parties are comfortable with any alterations if they have to be made.

    This is a really exciting part, full of character and with some fantastic songs to boot, so don’t miss out on this opportunity! Whether you have performed lots before or this would be your first time on stage, we would love to hear from you!

    You can listen to some of Oda Mae’s iconic songs here including: “I’m Outta Here!”: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y37mNokjpOg, and “Are You A Believer?”: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BrxhxsfBhxA

    If you are interested in auditioning, please do get in touch with us to organise an audition. This will involve sending us a self-tape video (to kw444@cam.ac.uk), which includes you singing an excerpt of a 1980s song (ideally from musical theatre) as well as the extract included in our audition pack (see below). Ideally this will be filmed in one take. Please send in your video submissions as soon as possible so we can finalise our cast and crack on with rehearsals!

    Any questions, feel free to email us or check out our Oda Mae audition pack for more information about the role and audition process, as well as the audition extract.

    We look forward to hearing from you!

            Fireside Theatre are taking Northanger Abbey to the Edinburgh Fringe! We will be taking the show to the stunning St. Giles' Cathedral, right in the heart of the city, from 12th-24th August.

            Please sign up for an auditions slot at https://doodle.com/poll/ewgde69yt5f6i8gx

            About the show:
            Northanger Abbey, first performed in Selwyn Chapel in Michaelmas 2018, is going to the Edinburgh Fringe! It will be performed over two weeks in St. Giles' Cathedral, one of Scotland's most beautiful and iconic buildings.

            Praise for Northanger Abbey

            5 stars "You will probably never see the likes of this again: it is impossible not to be charmed, gripped and thrilled" – Varsity
            4 stars – TCS

            "But when a young lady is to be a heroine, something must and will happen to throw a hero in her way."

            Seventeen year old Catherine lives a quiet life in the country with only her beloved Gothic novels for excitement. That is, until she is brought to Bath, where her inexperience leaves her in awe of bustle of city life and the glamour of her new friends. But before long Catherine finds herself tiring of the gossip and games of courtship, and can't resist an invitation from the Tilney family to accompany them to their family seat, Northanger Abbey. Enchanted by the estate's Gothic grandeur, Catherine finally feels as though she has fallen into one of her favourite novels, but soon discovers the pitfalls of confusing fact and fiction.

            Jane Austen's Northanger Abbey is a heartwarming exploration of the delights of youth, love, and above all, a good novel. Full of Austin's distinctive humour and larger than life characters, this new and unconventional adaptation captures the wit and originality of the 19th century classic.

            Shakers: Re-stirred

            19:00, Tue 11th June 2019 - Sat 15th June 2019 at Corpus Playroom
            Easter Week 7

            We are looking for four talented female/nb actors to take on the challenging and exciting roles Shakers has to offer. You will be switching between female, male, employee, client and everything else in between in the blink of an eye. We are therefore looking for the ability to multirole and convey meaning through physicality and voice. Since the play is set in Yorkshire, an appropriate Yorkshire accent will be required, but please don't let this put you off auditioning - we have plenty of time and would prefer to see your acting to the best of its ability rather than a perfect accent!

            Anyone and everyone is encouraged to apply, regardless of experience, orientation or ethnicity. We understand that Cambridge theatre can be a scary place at times, but with a panel made up entirely of Freshers, auditions will be very relaxed and fun!

            Extracts will be available on the door. Since the play is so fast-paced it is important that you are able to think quickly, however if you want to have a read of the script beforehand, you can find it here: https://www.dramaonlinelibrary.com/plays/shakers-restirred-iid-126226

            Please sign up for an audition slot on the doodle poll below:

            Easter Week 7

            Looking for three talented BME women/ non-binary individuals to perform this brilliant script by the phenomenal debbie tucker green 👀👀

            This production will bring the vibrant atmosphere of a Caribbean summer to the Corpus playroom. Over a long and relaxed rehearsal period, we will devise physical theatre to complement debbie tucker green's prose, and will spend time working with the musicality of the text. Although this promises to be a challenging production, we encourage people with little or no experience performing in Cambridge to audition. We are particularly interested in BME women who have some experience in dance/ physical theatre, or spoken word/ poetry/ music.

            For audition, please prepare one of the extracts from this audition pack. Extracts will also be on the door, and there is no need to learn them before audition.

            Twelfth Night: Clare May Week PlayClare Actors

            14:30, Tue 18th June 2019 - Thu 20th June 2019 at Clare Fellows' Garden
            Easter May Week

            Auditions for TWELFTH NIGHT - Clare May Week Garden Play!!!

            Hello wonderful people, auditions are now available for Twelfth Night! This should be a really fun production and a really nice way to spend Easter term and May Week afternoons. We want to make the show really accommodating for everyone in what is a very stressful and pressurised exam term - we shall try our best to work around everyone's timetables and create a fun environment that should be a nice break from work.

            Extracts are in the audition pack (link below) and there will be paper copies available on the door. Please prepare one extract for the character that you would like to audition for but DON'T worry about learning it off by heart! We just want to be able to see an understanding of the character as well as your interpretation of the part. Please expect to be re-directed after having performed the extract for the first time.

            Casting for Feste and Fabian will be gender-blind, and all casting will be race-blind. Actors will also be considered for parts in the production other than the ones that they audition for - if there are any problems with this please let us know in the audition.

            Actors auditioning for Feste should be aware that the character will be singing in this production. If actors successfully get through to the recall-audition they will be expected to prepare a short song. Further details will be given closer to the time. It is not necessary to have a perfect singing voice - we are looking for actors that can really perform the song and build character into their performance.

            Please pick an audition slot on Doodle. If there are no Doodle slots available at a suitable time we are accepting video auditions - please send to the contact email below. We want to see as many people as possible, so if there are any issues with audition times, please don't hesitate to email and we shall try to figure something out!

            Auditions will be held at the Blythe Room, Clare Colony, Clare College - we've tried to put together some directions on the Google Drive audition pack that may be of some use.

            Video auditions must be submitted by 23:59 on 28/04/2019.

            Tuesday 23rd April: 4-6pm, Corpus Playroom Auditorium

            Extract and further details below!

            —————————

            I wonder what kind of spit mine will be. Long and globulus. Like a stalagmite melting out of deep sleep. Or phlegmy and bronchial and green. Like the sputum of a tubercular warthog.

            When Frances discovers that Sister Ina Marsh of Ballymun, Dublin, has died, she decides it is high time that she hops on a plane and goes to spit on her grave. It’s an act of revenge long overdue. Sister Ina Marsh, after all, is the woman who left Frances’ then 18 year-old grandmother high, dry and without so much as a friend in Jesus. Sister Ina Marsh, after all, is almost the reason Frances is here on the planet in the first place.

            This darkly humorous piece tracks the span of one woman’s saliva-fuelled odyssey to rectify the wrongs of history. It is a work which deals with family, journeys, the impossibility of altering the past and whether doing ‘the right thing’ is ever as right as is intended.

            —————————

            This is an amazing opportunity for one female or non-binary actor to bring this infectiously funny and engaging character to life! You’ll be part of a small, enthusiastic team dedicated to presenting new, invigorating theatre from a female perspective. NB: we are going to the Fringe for the second two weeks of August and you will need to be able to commit to a rehearsal period earlier in the summer.

            —————————

            Praise for BirthdA by Alannah Lewis, a one-woman play told from the point of view of a young woman with Asperger’s:

            TCS, 4 stars: ‘The monologue form is challenging. It needs momentum and structure and the protagonist must work alone to create a world onstage. Lewis’s script provides this and more. The images she conjures are striking – poetic language is never pretentious but images burn quick and bright’

            Varsity, 4 stars: ‘Directed exquisitely by [Zoe] Black, [Teuta Day] has an intense energy that allows her to convey every word, every second, to the extreme. She perfectly captures BirthdA Girl’s quirks and characteristics, creating a beautifully detailed, flawed, bright, hopeful individual, toying perfectly with Lewis’ darting, dancing script.’

            —————————

            Don’t hesitate to get in touch with any of the team if you have any questions at all! And please message if you can’t make either of the slots, we’ll try our best to fit you in. We look forward to seeing some of you soon!
