Auditions Notice – All Quiet on the Western Front – 13th August

We will be holding auditions for our 9th production to date, an in-house adaptation of Erich Maria Remarque’s classic anti-war novel ‘All Quiet on the Western Front’ on Wednesday 13th August.

It is set in World War I, and seen from the perspective of ordinary German soldiers, both at the front fighting with the French and British and also on the Home Front. There are plenty of parts and not exclusively for men with significant parts for women too.

There will be two workshops in the lead up to the audition. These will be next Wednesday, 30th July and the Wednesday following, 6th August, both at 7pm and at The Casa. They will look at themes from the play whom the director will be focusing on in the production.

PLEASE NOTE – We will only audition actors who attend the workshops and that this is unpaid work. There is no need to prepare a piece for the audition which will be a combination of devised and script work provided on the day.

Performance dates for the production are 14th, 15th, 17th, 19th, 21st and 22nd of November.

[It may be helpful to actors wishing to audition, though by no means obligatory, to watch the 1930 black and white film adaptation of All Quiet on the Western Front, which will give you a good feel of the novel. It is available on You Tube in full if you search for it. Avoid watching the 1970s colour version which is a much poorer and inadequate adaptation]
