Audition Opportunities

E-mail sent by Trini Kaushal, Tuesday, 23rd November 2010 @ 9:10pm

Dear members,

Just a few audition opportunities to update you with this week:

One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest
by Dale Wasserman
based on the novel by Ken Kesey

Tyrannical Nurse Ratched rules her ward in an Oregon State mental hospital
with a strict, unbending routine. Her patients, cowed by mind-numbing
medication and the threat of electric shock therapy, dare not oppose her.
But everything changes with the arrival of McMurphy - the swaggering,
fun-loving trickster with a devilish grin, who resolves to oppose her rules
on behalf of his fellow inmates. His struggle is seen through the eyes of
Chief Bromden, a seemingly mute patient who understands McMurphy's heroic
attempt to battle with the powers that keep them imprisoned. McMurphy
battles Nurse Ratched and the ward regime, challenging everyone's beliefs
about madness...who, of them all, is really insane?

5 parts still to be cast

Performance dates:
February 28th - March 12th
at Theatro Technis,
Mornington Crescent

Rehearsal dates:
10th January - 28th February,

This is a fantastic opportunity for everyone involved to display their
talents to reviewers and names in the industry (including the wife of the
author), and to take part in a challenging, thought-provoking play with a
group of keen and creative actors and dedicated directors, as well as
experiencing some perhaps unorthodox rehearsal techniques...

We are looking for actors through to artists, including musicians, dancers,
stage crew, costume/set designers, etc, and anyone interested in the
production side of things.

Please bring your own piece to read that you feel is suitable and do not be
offended if the audition is cut very brief. You may also be considered for
future productions by the theatre company even if not cast in this play.
Please come along to the CSC Rehearsal Room from 3 - 5pm on Friday 26th November
(moving to CSC room 105 @ 4pm).

Those who cannot attend the audition but wish to be considered for a part,
please contact us at or phone 07904916888. We look
forward to seeing you th

Warmest regards,

UCL DramaSoc actors/directors
Blissful Dysania Theatre Company
