Auditions

Network Theatre Company productions have open auditions run by the director and their team. Every show is different so every audition process is different, but we have tried to answer some common questions with common answers. Check the notes on the show page for any specific requirements or details.

See below for the list of currently scheduled auditions.

Who can audition?

Anyone who’d like to be involved. Our auditions are open, so members and non-members alike can take part.

What will I have to do?

This depends very much on what requirements the show will place on the actors and who is directing. You may be asked to perform a monologue, or take part in a small scene with another actor. Group work with the rest of the people auditioning may play a part. If the show is a musical, you may be asked to take part in a singing or dance audition. The director may ask for candidates to prepare an extract from the show – check the show page for details.

How should I prepare?

You should come to the audition with some idea of which characters you are interested in performing, and with as much knowledge of the show as possible. Network Theatre Company auditions are normally preceded by an informal reading – you may like to come along to the reading to understand more about the show and get a feel for the characters. The audition notes may also ask you to fill out an audition form or ask you to prepare a monologue.

How do I register for an audition?

Unless the audition notes specify otherwise, just turn up at the specified time – no registration is necessary.

What shows have auditions coming up?

The Provok’d Wife

20 Sep - 23 Sep 2017 In swinging London Lady Brute is provoked to infidelity by her husband. Married in haste – he for sex, she for money and status – Lord and Lady Brute are shackled in wedlock, but looking for diversions. He goes off for a drunken night on the town while she and her niece disguise themselves for a secret meeting with their lovers, spied on by a jealous rival ….. First performed in 1697, John Vanbrugh’s bawdy romp through the pleasure gardens of London comes up fresh-as-paint in this sharp new adaptation by Bernie Byrnes.
